    ATi 4870X2 Club House

    Ah ha... Yeah, I'm running stock clocks. I don't dare go much higher due to the heat it produces now, especially with the VRAM. Jeremy

    ATi 4870X2 Club House

    How come everyone is complaining about idle temps on their X2's? Mine idles at 47C and that's with the fan only running at 35%. It only idled a few degrees over that before I changed the thermal grease. I wouldn't think my case flows that much better than some others... Jeremy

    I can fan control my 4870X2 through Rivatuner with the PhysX hack. Haven't attempted an overclock as it seems to be running very well as is. BTW, I'm using the 10.1's. Jeremy

    195.62's. Newest I'm aware of. 9.09.0814 is the version of PhysX software I'm running. Jeremy

    Yes sir, now that I have the hack. Before I couldn't, it'd throw me an error however It would still work. I am running Windows 7 BETA, maybe that's why? Jeremy

    I'm running it right now as we speak without it hooked up and it works fine... Jeremy

    ATI and Physx

    If you are running windows 7 there's no need to have anything hooked to the nvidia card. Also if it doesn't appear to want to work simply uninstall ONLY the PhysX software and reinstall and it should work just dandy. Jeremy P.S. I had it working on the old drivers fine with no hack, only I...

    Has anyone successfully undervoltaged their GDDR5 cards? I'd like to do so to get my VRAM temps down... Jeremy

    ATi 4870X2 Club House

    I'd like to bring down the VRAM temps haha. I'd have to think they are just pumping too much voltage to them being GDDR5 was relatively new at the time. I'd imagine this would have to be a hardware mod and not achievable in the BIOS. Jeremy

    +1 to the table idea haha I didn't notice much of a drop when I changed my thermal grease to AS5 however it didn't idle that hot before... 50 C. Idles around 47 C now, but I'm also only running the fan at 35%... Now if I could just get my VRAM temps down :( Jeremy

    I posted a video on this forum of Sacred 2 with and without PhysX enabled. Pretty big difference. A lot more eye candy :toast: Jeremy

    Well I'm not saying I'm rooting for Nvidia here :P I simply have an $85 Asus 9600GT doing my PhysX and a 4870X2 doing my display :laugh: It would be cool if someone could hack PhysX to run better on the CPU, don't get me wrong... Then there would be no reason for my extra Nvidia card and I...

    ATI and Physx

    So what you're trying to say is that Nvidia is limiting the PhysX calculations that can be done by the CPU so you have to buy an Nvidia card in order to utilize all of it's potential? What's so wrong with that? PhysX is their code... They don't make CPUs but they do make GPUs. It's like me...

    ATi 4870X2 Club House

    Well the cooler itself has studs that screw into the heat sink, then go through the board and the finger nuts go on. No springs if I remember right. I actually have my stock cooler for it I might just toss back on now that I'm not cramp for space due to crossfire... Anyone know a good way to get...

    3 whole slots huh... The T-Rad2 on my 9600 has some pretty big thumb screw nuts on the back side that look like they'd hit one of the fans :ohwell: Jeremy

    ATi 4870X2 Club House

    Anyone have a picture of the Accelero with the card in their case and showing how many expansion slots it takes up? I'm interested to know if it will fit in my case with my 9600 too. Jeremy

    ATI and Physx

    Wait, you've lost me. All I know is with my PhysX card disable it runs every single PhysX benchmark and game at about 50% performance or worse. The PhysX card seems to take a load off of the CPU allowing it to focus on other duties which in turn gives you more processing power to the ATI card...

    I was too. Space looks to be the only problem I can see. Jeremy

    ATi 4870X2 Club House

    I can see now why people say to change the thermal grease on these cards... I also took some pictures of my card in my case next to my 9600GT with a t-Rad2 as some were talking about using it with another radiator for cooling the X2. I'm not sure but from what I can see it won't work for a...

    I agree. I ordered my motherboard mainly to do this... I don't think I would do it again, but I really wanted to get it to work. I had a decent gigabyte board before this (only 2 PCI-E slots) and although I like the Lan Party more, it would have been cheaper for me to buy a quad core and a...

    Yes and no... Pros: Game play is great, rivals with Diablo 2 which I was huge into however is playable in single player for hours unlike D2 Graphics are fantastic Came out before D3 :laugh: Allows me to utilize PhysX Cons: Learning curve (never played Sacred 1) Game is very buggy, even with...

    Nvidia Physx- The Proof is in the video!

    It's not to retort, it was so others could see what PhysX is/does. That other post doesn't have anything to do with that video if someone were to search for such a thing on this forum. I saw no reason to hijack that thread into a "PhysX is the best thing in the world" rant, nor am I trying to do...

    I did so because A) I already had an ATI card B) A lot of people were saying it couldn't be done (I've been doing it for over a year now) C) It cost me $85 to buy the 9600GT, a lot cheaper than another 4870X2, with a lot more performance (PhysX wise) D) It looks cool I'm not arguing that...
