    I've had my x1900xt for about 3 days now and although i am loving it its scaring me a little, now using ati 0.25 beta 15 its giving me a gpu temp of 65 degrees!!, i have a zalman vf700al/cu that i could fit to it but would that be any better than the stock cooler shown here (3rd one down):
    http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatalog/X1900_Series.html

    Also what would be a good cooler if this isnt sufficient (cant afford water cooling so dont go there :laugh: )?

    ok just downloaded ATI tray tools and increased the fan speeds, think they have diverted heathrows air traffic over my house :roll: :roll:

    Stock cooling for the X1900 series is the best out there, but noisy.. if you can figure how to cool it more silently, you'll have the best cooler

    You have to realise, the X1900 series is HOT!!! 65c idle is low.. lol.. they usually reach up high into the 90's under load. When I get one, im going to satisfy my overclocking needs and rig it in with my watercooling, and toss in another 80mm radiator.

    How much is temperature after you increase fan speed?

    I have Zalman VF900CU-LED, and my GPU never over 50*C (idle 41-42*C, full load 47-48*C).

    "how about sound dampeners? or would the ear spliting sound still come through"

    the card is designed to run around 90c under load and the fan is not desigend to run flat out till the temps get near the 100c mark.. flat out is a safety factor..

    leave the fan as ati set it and it aint noisy.. mine runs 90c with the fan at about 70%.. which is how its supposed to be..

    in 2d mode its silent and runs about 50c.. ..

  7. hey trog, i'm not tryin to be mean, but i think you like high temps, your cpu idles at 50c which i think is unacceptable in any way, my cpu at 1.66 runs about 40load and idles at 29/30 with the new hsf i put on, and i'm still tryin to find ways to keep it under 40, and that's with a 400mhz oc, and a 90c gpu core, that's way to hi, i know the newer cards run a lil hotter, but i'm sure some water or a nice heatsink would do the trick. lol, either way i do admire your system, i want a new card, but until dx10 comes out i'm holding back. happy gaming m8

    you could improve the efficiency of the stock cooler, but it would take a bit of work.
