    Need help getting cooling fan speed faster

    Hello, I have a Gainward Bliss 7800GS+ card. I switched the existing arctic cooling fan, which is extremely heavy due to the copper heat sink, to a standard low profile Nvidia cooling fan with smaller copper plate HS. The bios has the fan speed locked at 20% for 2D and 30% for 3D...

    Gainward 7900GS AGP 512MB

    Hey Mr.Scott, I tried the twist method to get the HS detached. Twisting the HS did the trick. I was right...the thermal paste was so old it had become like super glue. Hard and brittle and basically doing nothing to reduce temp of gpu I suppose. I removed the old thermal paste...

    Gainward 7900GS AGP 512MB

    Hello, If the card is faulty, what are the first possible technical causes that are usually responsible for flawed cards? I'd still like to apply new thermal paste to the gpu to get the temp down 10 degrees Celsius or so. Can't hurt. I can't imagine how the card could work for 20 min or...

    Challange: Increase fan speed of Gainward 7800GS+

    Hello, I've been trying to find a way to increase the cooling fan speed on my Gainward Bliss 7800GS+. Rivatuner will not show fan settings when using the 7800+ card. So I attempted to use NiBiTor and nvflash to change the fan speed settings in the bios. But NiBiTor will only show 2D and...

    Plastic fan connection guide missing from graphics card board

    Hello, I tried the 180 degree...unfortunately this did not work. I thought that I might have had the wrong orientation when I attached the fan connector the first time and it did not work.

    Plastic fan connection guide missing from graphics card board

    Hello, I recently purchased a used graphics card on ebay. I tried to attach a new fan to the card and noticed that the usual plastic fan guide was missing and I only had 2 metal prongs sticking up to attach the fan connector to. I was able to get the fan attached to the 2 prongs (sliding...

    Gainward 7800 Can't get fan settings in rivatuner

    Hello, I've had a Gainward 7800GS for a few weeks now and I've been trying to get the fan speed up to 100% so I can possibly overclock the card. But the fan settings option will not show up in Rivatuner....I have another older card where the fan settings show up so I can change the fan...

    Gainward Bliss 7800+ with 20/7 pipelines vertex

    Hey Thank you for the link. I guess I'm going to have to take the plunge and alter the bios for the card. I think I saw a guide here for doing this. I'll have to search for it. Maybe I can also alter the bios for my 7800+ so the fan will work at 100% from boot...to keep the card cooler...

    Gainward Bliss 7800+ with 20/7 pipelines vertex

    Hello, Would it not be more efficient and stable to alter the existing card bios or upgrade the card bios to unleash the full 24/8? Rather than use software like rivatuner? Just wondering. Thank you for the link...this will be helpful. Cheers I attempted the rivatuner mode to unleash...

    Gainward Bliss 7800+ with 20/7 pipelines vertex

    Hey cdawall, I tried rivatuner and the same info is showing up. Looks like this is a standard G70/NV47 gainward 7800GS model. 425/625, GDDR3. But I'm wondering if I could unleash the 24/8 somehow anyway? Looks like whomever the previous owner was altered the bios so the clock was...

    Gainward Bliss 7800+ with 20/7 pipelines vertex

    Hello, I've been gifted what I thought was a Gainward Bliss 7800GS+ til i plugged it in and used GPU-Z to find that it had 20 pipelines and 7 vertex shaders instead of the full 24 pipelines and 8 vertex shaders. Revision A1, G71, 90nm, 302 transistors Is there anyway to unleash...

    Gainward Bliss 7800GS+ Golden Sample Silent FX w/ 24/8 pipes/vertex

    Hello, I've finished replacing thermal tape and cleaning and replacing thermal paste. The problem I found with the Gainward Bliss 7800+ is that gainward limited the cooling fan speed to 50% max in the bios. I'll need to go into the bios and edit the bios to allow the cooling fan to...

    Gainward Bliss 7800GS+ Golden Sample Silent FX w/ 24/8 pipes/vertex

    Hello, Thank you for the reply. The memory chips are Infineon and have the following code on them: FVV14025. I'm guessing the numbers mean something. Maybe 14mm x 25mm chip size? http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=52397&stc=1&d=1378028502

    Gainward Bliss 7800GS+ Golden Sample Silent FX w/ 24/8 pipes/vertex

    Hey Jstn7477, I thought so...regarding how hot the memory chips get. Do you think I should use the thermal pads (14mm x 14mm x 1mm) with the memory chips and individual heatsinks for each chip or go for the single pushpin heatsinks that are designed to cover 4 memory chips...should I use...

    Gainward Bliss 7800GS+ Golden Sample Silent FX w/ 24/8 pipes/vertex

    Hey m1dg3t, What software is telling you that the memory for the Gainward 7800GS+ is 14mm x 14mm? I'd certainly like to check it out. I noticed that the thermal pads I viewed online are only made of silicone...no tape or adhesive on each side to adhere to chip and heatsink. The...
