Probably about 8-9k OC'ed, at least I think that's what Buck Nasty said his get
OMG, very nice El Fiendo! It looks like i was a victim of a drive-by. I want to see more members ahead of me in the future.
you offer any good clocking 8800 gt? if my BFG doesnt clock better with the accellero,i will surely flip out!
if your asking if i am going to sell any card.. The answer is no(sorry). I am trying to get the GSO from hat that he won in the contest... If it doesn't clock any better... There is always that voltmod that i showed you
btw my GTs all are clocked at 700/1800/900(c/s/m)
My driveby managed to miss you completely, only succeeding in making you duck, and then also run out of gas about 50 meters down the road. I give it another couple of hours until you're knocking on the driver's side window with a shotgun in hand.
the problem is: i need good gaming/folding clocks. and the 8800 scale well with memory in games, if im not wrong... how about 8800 gts mem controller dieing because the mem was clocked above 1000 mhz? is that a myth,or truth?
ah, i fear the voltmod!
i even fear to put on that accellero atm
have to protect me from sudden panic, to not destroy something
i think it is just a myth because i ran mine above 1000mhz for the games that needed alittle more power and benched at over 1000mhz and have yet to have a problem..
voltmods CAN go wrong but just be careful
1050 24/7 are stable, but i dont want the EVGA to die
it can even do 1100,may be samsung and not crapmonda
as said, the damn BFG is a brick, compared to the Evga
im always shaking and sweating cold, when performing even a pencil mod
ever killed a part due to a fault you did?
i'm sure its not the answer you want to hear.. Many times. Killed a few 7900GS 2mobos few sticks of ram. Had a few PSUs die from the stress of high voltage bench runs(voltmodded GPU+1.7vCPU+2.5vram+Xclio PSU=FAIL) but if it helps any now that i am older and use my brain when i do things like that i haven't killed anything. I have voltmodded 2 8800GTs 3 7900GS and out of them i killed 2 of the 7900GS (i was 15 then) and didn't kill any of the 8800GTs.
ust take your time and don't go crazy and be like "ZOMG VOLTMOD *turns pot* ZOMG 1.5v! AWW OCP..*turns pot to higher resistance* FAIL I killed my card "lol just do that and you should be good
nah, what you told me is fine. you wrecked something yourself,so you are truly more careful than before
im currently fitting the accelero,universal glue seems to work fine with the mx2... i hope that doesnt isolate anything, but we will see... the stock cooler is shit so far, im glad i can remove it. the core was only 80% covered in paste, the edges were up to 3 mm free
wonder she overclocked even so much
good luck i hope it works for you. My core had too much TIM on it so i think that is why mine was running so hot. Now the Nvidia branded 8800GT has been running in the low-mid 70c's with fan on 75% so i'm ok with that for now.(not that i have a choice the board it is in can't use a dual slot cooler with the card in the first slot
the leaf blower cooler from the evga is single slot, and cools VERY efficiently, and also very silent. maybe you can find one used?
how long should i let the heatsinks "dry"?
i waited half an hour after glueing/MXing the card, then sticked it in.
idle is 38/38 (core) 27/26 (PCB) and 30/30 (memory) atm. can i loadtest so soon after completition? i fear the sinks may come off
go ahead and load test it.. Just watch temps. also at 120c the card SHOULD shutoff to save its self. I'm not going to mess with the cooler on the nvidia card it does its job fine for me also what did you glue?
UHU Extra Alleskleber (Universal Glue)
soft,elastic stuff, you always can rip of in the case of emergency. i followed your method, lets hope it also works for me
good luck. I will check back tomorrow after school. I have a headache and feel sick so off to bed. Gnight
swine flus first symptoms. be aware of yourself, its still pandemic, even though mostly not deadly for people our age.
we dont want to loose a fellow,powerful cruncher/folder for weeks!
lets hope our lifes both better,eh?
I don't think its swine flu but it could be possible. I think the feeling sick is from the pain pills and the headache...well i have alot of headaches for no reason.
Pain pills can make you feel sick to your stomach.
I hope you feel better soon.
Well, nice, I have a $500 doorstop: Products outside the initial warranty period
If your Palit product is outside of its initial warranty period, as covered by the original place of purchase, but is within the manufacturer warranty period (one year from date of purchase) ; a lousy 1 year warranty? I copied that right from Palit's rma section. Nice xmas present eh?
Everyone, I'm sorry to announce that my dad has finally laid down the law and I have to stop folding for the time being.
However, I will be able to keep crunching with my laptop. Hopefully I will be able to start again soon
Congrats to the F@H team for surpassing the 200 Million Point mark today!
Do they offer repair service?
I don't see much point in spending on safe shipping($60) and then the repair bill for a card that will just die again. I'm seriously considering sli gtx260s, as they tend to have a lower failure rate. Found out I can get a gtx260 sp216 for $196can brand new, dam nice price! Still would like to try a gtx285 out, have to figure this expensive junk out.....
that sucks the big one. I hope that doesn't happen to me if it does that is alot of points gone
Excellent work everyone, congratulations to everyone who helped TPU pass this incredible milestone!
