    As the title states, A club for high end AGP Graphic Card owners! :D

    Since there is a lot of post's of AGP cards throughout the forums, I thought we should have our own club to post and share our cards.

    If you have pictures, I will include you in the club list below :toast:

    Nicely done! That's quite a collection there.

    I tried to stay with AGP for as long as I could and I've recently disposed of my excellent X1950 Pro and my stellar 3850 is still happily rockin' out in my best mate's rig.

    As I'm going to visit him this weekend, if I remember I'll take a photo of the beaut.

    :D

    Thanks man!, I'm glad I held onto my AGP cards. All my IT friends think i'm a complete fool hanging onto "Useless junk" haha.

    I recently got the 4670, 1950Pro and the 3850 with the X850XT PE. I just found them to be very interesting, and great fun to overclock with :D

    Awsume!, Take as many pictures as you want :rockout:

    It's a HIS 3850 AGP with a cooler from a broken ASUS 6870 DirectCU. Direct fit (Fan connector and all)

    It works really well :D

    I still have a Sapphire 3850 AGP on my AM2NF3-VSTA running XP, and I also have a 4CoreDual-SATA2 with an X6800 as a small server but it's running an ASUS GF4 MX440 64MB. Other less notable cards I have are a GF6200 256MB DDR2 and an OEM FX5200 128MB in my freebie Dell Dimension 8300.

    Now that is pure amazing, I need to start tidying my rigs up now. Seriously :twitch:
    Chuck the 3850 into the scraps build and see what it can do :rockout:

    Also Added to the list! :)

    I made a mistake, I have the plain 128mb models. If you are still interested, I can take a picture of them and upload a GPUZ link with a bios file?

    OMG AGP - that takes me back!

    I've got a couple of cards that should fit the bill. I'll try to add photos later.

    I saw a diagram of the Hyper 212+ and the height is 158mm. I think I'll be able to fit it inside the case but I'll have to macgyver some way to mount it.

    If it doesn't fit I have an N520 that surely would but it's heavier due to the metallic cover.

    Now there's a classic worth preserving. :respect: Abit were my favourite enthusiast brand bar none back in the day.

    I have the AN7, AI7 and AN8 Ultra and mobos.

    BTW, what should we consider a high end AGP card? Anything north of Intel HD4000 for example? or just high end in its time period?

    If we take HD4000 as a baseline it would mean:
    X800XT and above
    X1650XT and above
    HD2600XT and above
    HD3650 DDR3 and above
    HD4650 and above

    I would say stuff from the FX5800 Ultras/5950 Ultras, 6800 Ultras, 7800GS/7950GT, Voodoo 5 series, and any HD Series, X series etc?

    I have a X850XTPE sitting in a box somewhere. I'll have to dig it out though Im pretty sure I uploaded pics of it before somewhere... back in the day I had the 3rd highest clocked X8XX class GPU in all of Guru3D, I was marginally beaten by a heavily volt modded X800XT

    Picked up the Hyper 212+ yesterday and on preeliminary testing it "fits" as in the heatpipes touch the acrylic window. I'll try to get a thinner acrylic sheet and see how it does. I have an old Thermaltake Volcano from which I can take the mounting hardware while I come up with something permanent.

    The only issue is that the fan on the northbridge heatsink will have to go so I'll have to get a tower style sink or something shorter. I'll pass by the computer recycling shop and see what I can find.







    Maybe I should start a log and not hijack this...



    EDIT: I found a cooper heatsink that should do the job. Not sure what it was for since it seems to be mounted with screws, I think I'll have to device something.

    Nice!
    I had issues with heatpipes in the past, very annoying when they hit the side pannels :/

    Go ahead and share, you are not hijacking! :D
