hey thats the exact card i have.

but its sitting in the cupboard now caus i wanted to play Unreal Tournament 3. lol so 'upgraded' (fucking ATI card instability i hate it so much.)

for 1. I can assure you this card can run fine in a case, without fans, with it fan unplugged.

It reaches 110deg C. but it still runs fine :D (mine came with a faulty fa that never spun, i just never checked, lol)

even so i then upgraded to this.

Zalman VF700-Cu (Copper) Video Card Cooler
$30

Though DONT use those zalman ramsinks. they dont do SHIT!

I love ramsinks, those ones are just the worst thing ive evr used. they never even get warm.

If you're into ramchips on the chips that produce heat, i'd grab these

Cooler Master LITTLE CHIPSET COOLER

http://www.gamedude.com.au/prod_show.php?art_no=coCOlittle

These little things are $12 for 10, and they transfer SO MUCH HEAT its not funny.

I have them inside my ADSL modem on al the chips. Now not only the chips burn my fingers but the heatsinks too, meaning they're doing their job!

This my friend, is At0mic.

I personally like to enjoy heat dissipation.

Zebra likes Optical Drives.

Datafast likes audio

everyone here is hardcore, and thats what makes this place unique.

and yeah, i felt my moem was getting very hot. so it needed heatsinks on the chips generating heat. Never had a heat based lockup. (and they're common on the model i have, unmodded)

But anywho, yes, the zalman took it down from 110C (without fan, heatsink only) to about 30degs celcius, at full load.

I used Arctic Silver thermal paste.

good luck :D

get some IsoPro from dicksmith to help you remove that old paste you'll find under the current heatsink.

I wouldn't!

1. I only just got this one. and love it.

2. fucking NOTICBLY faster net conection

3. Better range on wireless

4. VOIP

5. Im in love.

Also, remember when a product gets 'known for something' it only takes 2 forums or so. places lke whir, i mean,BITCHpool and its a 'known fault'.

eh. I dont care, I have a hotboxed modem. it'll be in the modding section soon enough.

b.change over to internode from optusnet
