evga has one for 50 http://www.evga.com/products/moreinfo.asp?pn=512-P3-1240-LR
I was just wondering, is the 9600GSO the shortest dual slot 100% rear exhaust card (nvidia, 8 series up)?
I popped it in my main rig to help the GX2 with temps, in the day it kept rising high with the heat. so I went ahead and put it in my 2nd rig which is in a open tech station and now the 295 has weird colors on the screen every time it goes into 3d. Trying to trouble shoot it.
ugh sounds bad CP
I assume you swapped cables already?
check seating in the slot. their heavy sometimes my GX2 messes up because it leans too much and barely touches the pins on one side of the slot. also rub the pins on the card with an eraser.
tried reaseating/seating/standing up/ all that crap. Cable makes no difference. I run older drivers and it's fine, but I need to switch between SLI and non SLI if I ever want to run a game or what not and it crashes with older drivers. With the new drivers i can switch without a issue, but then I get all sorts of weird colors.
use an eraser on the teeth of the card it takes off corrosion from finger prints dirt etc.

I could order this right now....but I'm starting to think about holding out after seeing E's post
EVGA has a GTX460 that's 8.5" long. Not sure if that's short enough.
Newegg had the Palit GTS450 for $100 after MIR this past weekend. IMHO, I think that investing in anything prior to the GTS450 is unwise at this point. And I like those Twin Frozr cards for F@H.
Thinking of a card that would not block the fan of my 275 if it is in the second PCIe slot in my P55 SLI. I think it has to be shorter than that, although I suppose I could just measure. I was pretty sure though that the GSO I had before was pretty short
Well fellas' it's back up and folding. I just disable a core to fold and leave it disable when gaming as well, it's the only way things go smoothly. Too much downtime already, had to get it going again.
did you try tightening the internal SLI cable?
Got no clue where it's at, and I don't feel like messing with it for now
if its the hydro copper single pcb then i dont think there is a sli bridge like on the gx2 and the dual pcb gtx-295
Yeah that's what I was thinking, this is single PCB. I know the GX2 has the bridge because I've personally taken it off/on.
damn man. no go huh? if you trust me ill send you my GX2 and see what i can do about the 295 and then ill send it back if I can fix it.
I wouldn't mind at all, but not right now. Various reasons, I'm broke, and 2nd I'll have to check with texbill who sent me the card. If it's ok with him them it's fine with me as well.
hey man no problem just an offer if you decide not to no worries.
I appreciate it bro.
Heard the GTS450 performs very good under folding. Any of our guys using this baby??
i hear they do around 9k overclocked
For reference, my GTX260 does around 8000...
GTS450 for $110 after MIR: Newegg
