    Hey,

    I clocked my x850pro (stock cooling) up to 540/560 (default being 506/520). Do you think I've pushed it too far? There are no artifacts so far and the heatsink is VERY hot to the touch and ATi tools said 70C at full load while playing FEAR.

    I bumped it up mainly so I could use 4x AA with FEAR (which I have to play on MED/800 by 600) to make it playable. What can I say I hate jaggies.

    Is 70 hot? for this card. It's about 55/60 with the normal clock and I have the fan on 100% at all times.

    It's OK...not the best temp, not the worst. If you could, get an aftermarket fan to cool it down..but at 70 for load, it's OK...

    Thanks for your quick reply dude, any coolers you would recommend?

    Is that a good clock for the card? Could I get a lot more with a better cooler?

    Hey Andy, what kind of case cooling do you have? My old X850 Pro went to 550/550 and the temps were only 63*C under full load. Plus I only had one crappy case fan.

    Atm none as the one case fan that I can use makes a horrible rattling noise. Though I have the case open (which is very loud as I have it on 100% fan). I was thinking about buying one of these:

    So I could close up the case, my current clock is 560/580 (40C non load/ 65/70 load).

    If you just put a small fan on your open case, it will do much better. Those PCI slot fans are quite good for exausting air, but I still reccomend getting another fan to bring some air in.

    ATI silencers are what i recommend. Don't know which one fits your card, but I got one for my x700pro and it is SOO much quieter and temps dropped from 54C idle/70C load to 42C idle/55C load. And we don't run the AC much and it's usally hot as hell here!! So you will probebly get lower if you run the AC. (or live in Canada :D)
