    I just installed a Zalman VF700-Cu LED cooler on my X800 XL and at first my temps were around 38(idle) and 60(load) o/c'd from 398/492 to 432/532 and then i tried scanning for artifacts and it finds way too many and the temp reads out 105 degrees! After that i lowered the speeds back to default and the same thing happens, over 105 degrees in artifact scanning and it still finds artifacts! I need help bad from anyone!

    yup, reinstall your cooler, thermal goo and all, and screw it on TIGHT (but not too tight, we dont want to add any cards to the hardware graveyard lol)

    I installed the card fine and everything and i installed the TIM right but when i started overclocking is when the problem started. Everything is tight on the cooler and its fine but its the o/c'ing that causes problems. ATITool shows a lot of artifacts.
    1.everything is fine, new cooler, nice temps, scan is fine
    2.tried o/c'ing, lots of artifacts high tremps(100 celsius)
    3.lowered to default, still artifacts still high temps.

    hmm OUCH. alright, what KIND of artifacts are you getting? If you're getting core artifacts (lots of little dots across the screen), underclock and run fan as high as it will go until artifacts go away. If you're getting memory artifacts (spikes coming off the render), make sure you put those RAMsinks on correctly :p . One more thing...maybe that cooler isnt designed for OCing. clean the GPU and Cooler, and then reinstall ONE MORE TIME. Then turn your system on and if all is working, DO NOT OVERCLOCK.

    I found the problem after a few hours investigating. The new computer desk i have barely has space for my computer. there's about an inch of clearance on each side so there is not much of an airflow so i have to get a new desk. Thanks for all of your help though!:respect:
