    HD4870 Fan scaling

    Anyone know if it is a bios bug to scale at the wrong temps? I checked it with RBE and it says it is supposed to ramp up at 80'C, but it seems to like keeping the temp at 89 after hours of use. Right now I have rivatuner covering it, and under clocked the card to CCC's lowest keep it at 45'C at...

    Dying 6800gt oc?

    Well I have had this card for a few months now, but all I have seen is the temperatures being really high (60C idle ~ 90C full load, stock international heatsink from BFG). It also cuts the screen off once i gets close to 90. It didnt cut off when I first got it and stressed it, but now it does...

    Asus-tek Star Ice base flat?

    I had this working 100% on a intel 560 at normal temps 34 idle and ~40 under load. When I oc'd to 4ghz it still worked fine with temps increasing by ~2 on each. The fan was always left at 3500 rpm since anything higher is too loud. I read in a review (later) that the base of the asus star ice...

    3dmark 05 - shadow errors?

    I just asking that you report wether or not the shadows in 3dmark flicker during the begining of the Flight Canyon test ( the 3rd test), I see clearly happening on the cliffs and reckon it has something to do with type of graphics card you have, ie affects fps greatly with NV and not so much...

    Unusal behaviour by my 9800Pro (not a problem with it)

    This is most strange. I wanted to upgrade the bios on my 9800pro so I went found a similar bios, flashed sucessfully but something must have been different since I could not over clock the memory as high as before. My original oc with atitool was 398 core and memory 351. So luckily I had...
