5 out of 5 eggs EASY overclocker, runs cool and quiet 08/20/2013

This review is from: EVGA 512-P3-1311-KR GeForce 210 512MB 32-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros:

I inherited an old Asus motherboard and built a basic system around it. I was looking for a simple video card to watch vids, browse the web, and had *some* OpenCL/CUDA to tap into for apps that can take advantage of it.

Out of the box, this sucker ran nice and cool. But, it could do much better. Took off the heatsink, put some Arctic Silver under there and fired up a bootable XP disk and used NiBiTor to overclock the heck out of this little wonder.

I was able to get an 11% across the board overclock without it blowing up or breaking a sweat. I dropped the lower end a bit more than what the factory set it to help it run even cooler. After overclocking it made my Windows score go up .2 from the original factory speeds. It's a win win for me!

Cons:

But can it run Crysis? Maybe, I don't know. I am not a gamer.

Other Thoughts:

This card is for those of us to whom the idea of a video card should be something which *doesn't* require a 2000WATT power supply just to run nor something that takes up *TWO* card slots not something that has 3 fans and sounds like a jet taking off under load. Seriously. I am old enough to remember Vesa Local Bus cards that *barely* fit in my case much less when you needed fan cooling to keep your video card cool from running some simple OpenGL stuff. I don't want to hear my video card at all. The loudest thing in my system should be my PSU fan. As it is right now, it is
