New xfx 6950 - Page 4

post #32 of 34
Thread Starter 
I am really unhappy on how my 6950 performs. It runs pretty hot even with two fans, random usage when browsing firefox, and AMD driver has stopped working seems to have happened now during Dirt 3. I wonder if a format will help?

Ya, I too have a xfx hd 6950. As long as I dont max out all settings seems to be ok, but thats with afterburner and fans do really start getting just too noisey for me. I'm really thinking of upgrading the cooler with a Accelero XTREME Plus II. I've tried to do alot of research to see if it will fit. XFX says it will, Accelero says it should, I read other places saying it wont. I'll give it a try anyways. I have the XFX with one single fan in the center of the card.

Now grant you, I haven't thought about re-aplying the tim. Maybe I'll try that.
OH, if you're going to open the card up. Start a work ticket with XFX first. They'll give you permission and then you wont void you warrantie
