    If you have a top of the line card, why overclock it?

    I got tempted after I installed the zalman cooler..
    But I have learn't my lesson now.. I get 5800 points in 3dmark 2006 with stock speed, so
    it's plenty good enough..

    I'm not going to use CCC for OC even now!

    Jeez am I scared.. 750$ for a card will do that to you!

    I paid 4700 Norwegan kroner.
    1 dollar is about 6 kroner.

    4700/6 = 783$

    Everything is expensive in norway by the way! They kill us with tax

    In Portugal too, the IVA (don't know if you have that in Norway), is the highest in the European Union at 21%, i always think Norway was a good country to live...

    We have IVA at 25% and 12% on food,I think!
    I pay around 40% tax on my salary... So I feel that most of the money I make go strait to the goverment.. But at least we have free healthcare.
    I aint complaining about norway really.. We are spoiled here compared to other countries.

    Well, free healthcare isn't in here, and for the taxes we pay our salary is low, (i don't work, still studying), apart from cold i always think it was/is a good place to live, and cold help overclock :p

    40% Income tax and 17.5% VAT (IVA) here and about an average max of 32C here in summer. Sorry 22% Income Tax up to £33,000 per year and 40% over that.

    that 1900 is a awsome card, were you lagging that badly that you had to overclock it and ruin it totally? My x850xt runs everything fine on super high settings, i aint fryin this baby. Sorry to hear it died man.

    but just learn something from it ;P
    the zalmann cooler which stores hot air in your case isnt good and the ati x1900xt/xtx cards are best oc able with liquid cooling^^

    apart from that i use ati tool on my card and i get a nice oc to 725/870mgh but my card reach under load only 60 degree ;P

    I contacted ATI about the temp of my X1900 GT, was worried that it was running too hot.
    idle it was at 70
    under load 80-90
    Their reply was normal temps

    My answer is BS

    everything in my system runs between 35-45 at idle
    CPU, hard drives and motherboard

    the fan speed on this card was turned down on purpose by ATI
    WHY?
    because of the complaints of loud fans on the older X1800 series

    I could care less about fan noise, Im more concerned with not frying a card.
    I have not OC'ed this card so these temps are unacceptable.

    before I switched motherboards ATI tool was able to change the fan speeds
    since then I have not been able to change it.
    Added 2 more fans to my system till I can get ATI tool to do the fan again.

    The first comparation i saw between a ti4200 64mb agp4x and a X1900GT, and looks like the NVIDIA wins....

    Where's the love?

    Wow. I just read this whole thread, and so I feel the need to post. :D LOL

    I can't believe how quickly everyone jumped all over the OP. Especially the bunch of people who don't own an X1900 XT who claim that he was using ATI Tool incorrectly. Do you recommend that you just not try to overclock with ATI Tool? How are you going to test for maximum 3D speeds without first setting the proper 3D voltage?

    I use an X1800 XT 512. First of all, for these cards, 85C load is perfectly normal. Not every game will get it that high, but a shader-intense game will. For the X1900 XT, 90-95 C load is perfectly normal. To everyone who is shocked and thinks this is too high, well, people have been using these cards for many months and they aren't dropping dead yet. It works, it has a warranty, so I'm happy. Obsess over the temperature if you please.

    Granted, I have very bad luck overclocking with ATI Tool. Just running the stress test will crash my screen. Fortunately, there's a nice little BIOS for my card which I flashed, and it works wonders, 700/800, original HSF, 85 C load with 30C ambient. Rock stable.

    44C in Portugal ?!? Can a human even live at that temperature?!? :eek: People are dropping dead in California right now because of the 46C heat :cry: And I'm about to drop dead with 32 :laugh:

    that is normal ive runed prescots at 100c x850s at 105c and my x1800s and x1900s at 110c and nothing has ever happened to the other than got unstable (x850 was unstable at that temp on stock clocks but ran with reduced clocks) my x1 cards are fine at stock clocks at those temps though

    see if the card gets to hot it will lock up and stop making as much heat once you reset it should be fine the problem is where you get the card too hot for the voltage your using like you might be able to use like frikin 2v at like -190c but it will cause the card to go up in smoke if you try it at room temp

    or at least this is what ive observed

    btw all 3 of my prescotts are still working and one of them i ran 90-100c for like a year stock voltage stock clocks odly enough there was still some mhz headroom on those things at those temps lol like a 300mhz oc tll it got unstable at 100c lol


    ps. you can set your fan to 100% in the vga bios using rabit
