Hi, My x1600pro 512 has been crashing in game COD4 , I used to play with out overclocking and it was fine , everybody wants some extra fps so i set the clocks 20mhz below the maximum , no artifacts. So it was fine like that for about 2 days then i choose to dust it this morning with a duster just on the top and the sides as i didint feel like taking it out. Now it crashes after 20 min of game play on defoult clocks and about an hour on my overclocked clocks.

I'am overclocking with ati tool 0.26

Overclocked clocks
Core - 600.75
Mem - 445.50

Temperature

Idle - 55-60
Load - 75-82


Idk why ,but on overclocked and on defoult clocks the temperature is the same.

I included the log below

:wtf: where in your pc is this sticky thing, exactly?
its on the graphic card.

here i found a link to it on newegg

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ShowI...Radeon+X1600PRO+X1600PRO+512MB+AGP+Video+Card

Go to that website and switch to the last picture. (bottom of the card)

its that yellow square thing with a black ractangle inside, mine is different color but the location and size is the same


Note: My card is not POWERCOLOR its x1600pro Saphire 512 the only difference i spot between those 2 is that mine has a bigger (almost takes half of the card ) heatsink

You can try cleaning it off with some 90+% alcohol (the sticky thing)
If you can, get some AS5 and re-seat that cooler. Temps will be much lower.

I know it's not crashing because of temps, but most here know lower temps = higher overclock.

Are you talking about a thermal pad that found sandwiched between the HS and the video card component?
Or are you talking about this pci (third pic)

He's talking about the third pic that has the yellow square.
I think its the heatsink on the card since its right under the core. How long have you had it? It might be that the heat sink disintegrated?

by any chance, what OS are you using?
I had to do a volt mod to my card after having it a few months.. Kept on crashing when I started Vista aero, and it crashed a few times while playing fear.
Also go to http://www.yougamers.com/games/10214/ and have them check your system specs... then if you can paste it here...

ok, thanks... whats your power supply volts? what I mean is this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ShowI...ription=Thermaltake+W0116RU+750W+Power+Supply

the +12 2 is what im wanting to know... when I had my problems with my card it wasn't that the temps where to high it was because the fan was going to fast and was over doing itself. So I had a friend that knew what he was doing and did a volt mod.

Instead of the power supply being on the card like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/ShowI...Radeon+X1600PRO+X1600PRO+512MB+AGP+Video+Card
I have it going right to my mobo, and the card isn't over working itself
I just have to wait for vista or amd to have something to fix my drivers on the card to work with vista aero....

what do you mean?? try this... can you get your computer up on your desk so that you can see it when you play? If so do this

Open your computer, and start up with CoD4... play it through till you have the crash...
questions-
1) how was the fan going... higher sound ( I know that cards fans go at a higher fan speed because of whats going on) Just want to know how the speed of the fan was... if its going like a small jet plane or just like normal fan you'd use on your desk...
2) how did the card feel... really hot or just semi hot...

The questions I ask is my fan sounded like a small jet engine starting up right before it crashed, and the card was semi hot...

Since you told me that you had it for a year or so, do you think that you can get someone to do a volt mod?
