hehe, yeah first im working on getting new ram so iwont have to overclock anything (aside from cpu that is) and than im getting a new psu, and than im getting a 22 inch widescreen monitor for higher resolution than my 19 inch w/s
Hey guys, this is some criticism, but someone down-voted and up-voted this thread. I honestly think you guys should stop five-starring every thread that appaears (not pointing this at anyone). Stop being dickheads whoever you are or Ill post here more frequently.
Back on topic:
Any solutions on an overheating passive 7600GS?
Don't worry about them tkpenalty. I don't think many people take any notice of the stars rating anyway. Whoever it is will eventually grow some balls.
You guys? I visit your thread as much as I do this one and I dont star rate any!
EN7900GTX Extreme Edition
Oh great... what do I do about a 7600GS thats starting to produce artifacts? Man are ASUS passive cards meant to last?
what are the temps, and are you overclocking it?
Its not overclocked *panics* 70*C Idle, 89*C Load... Its got the crappy stock alu heatsink installed. I tried AS5 but it was useless.
is the case well ventilated?
preforations, removed plates, its better than mine!
and as5 nothing uh?
can you post a pic of the card, asus genereally builds cool cards
No passive cards are meant to last.
I screwed a case fan onto the passive heatsink, effectively making it an active heatsink. Works very well.
lol... i'd like to see a picture of that.
I wish I would have taken pics before I got rid of the card, it was truly ghetto. Luckily the holes in the fan lined up perfectly with the fins, so that when I screwed the fan in it bit into the sides of the fins and made a very secure fit.
I sold the card though, upgraded to an X1950Pro.
palit 7900 gs512 (stock) , chipset nforce4
quick question gents, will my rig be able to run 2x palit 7900gs's in sli or would i need a better PSU ?
i was looking through someone systems specs and I saw the same power supply running 7900GTs
i assume if they aren't having problems you probably won't either
i would think 580w would would enough juice
Yours should be OK, specially as you are not overclocking your CPU.
cool cos im happy with the card it runs quiet and cool 37-45 even when oc'ed 500/1.4 from 460/1320 small oc i know plus adjusted the mem timings 2-4-4-7 12, im still bit of a noob but seems to be running solid atm.
just make sure you have enough on the 12v rail to power both cards and you should be good.
Just checked and as far as i read it, the psu has 2x +12v rail with 380w 38amps total ( 18a for +12v 1 and 20a for +12v 2 ) and 2x 7900gs require 245w ( underload ),
I googled and come up with this http://www.guru3d.com/article/content/377/3/.
Plus i used the hiper web site to check the PSU's specks. http://www.hipergroup.com/English/products/hpu-4k580.html
This sound kosher to you guys ? ( plus i suppose it will help anyother person wanting to go sli like me )
heck, those power numbers look more than good. go for it!
Intergrated Geforce 6150 on an Asus board. Will be getting an 8600 series card in a year or so when I save up. I also have a Geforce 4 MX440.
