Problem with x1800 very low FPS - Page 6

post #51 of 82
I am thinking it is the power supply causing the crashes. I dont remember exactly but I remember something about 33amps on the 12volt rail required for all x1800 graphics cards. Chozart could you back me up on this one? Have you heard of the x1800 working on a dell 450watt PSU?

Dev could you check to see what the max amps is on the 12v rail? Look in your case at the power supply it should have a listing of amps and such on the side. Look for the max on the 12v+ the max amps will be listed below it.

EDIT:::::::It could be both, but lets get your cpu cool first. Did you remove the old thermal pad? After that you should only use a grain of rice sized drop on the cpu heatspreader. then apply the heatsink and thats it. make sure the heatsink is clean before you insert it.

If you have a 24 pin PSU, which means that the large plug of the PSU fits the large, white connector on the left without any open spaces, then you only have to use the square connector on the right, and NOT the other one. Here is the manual of your motherboard:
ftp://download.intel.com/support/mot...6413602_en.pdf and on pages 49/50 this is explained.
I have minfe plugged into the one on the left.

Okay I can only see the bottom of the sticker on my PSU when i look at it, because my case blocks the rest. But at the bottom it says this:

**5V+3v3V+12V Max Combined = 422W

You lost me here... I don't currently have the thermal paste at this location, it's about 8 hours away. So I'll buy some new stuff. What exactly do I need and where can I get it?

Ok, although your video card gets enough power on its own, I think it's still worth a try to connect the other connector on the right. Thus, both the square one and the rectangle one should be connected. The board is probably not getting enough power to deal with the heavy demands of the 3D Graphics withouth this additional power.

Yes I know. The extra connector is important when you use a powerful video card. Sorry for phrasing my response in a confusing way.
I did mean that you should try to plug in that extra connector.
In response to Spooked, yes, the PSU might definately be too weak to handle the X1800XT. A solid current is needed on the 12V rails, which this PSU is likely lacking. I don't think it's a Dell though.... he has a Xion case, and the PSU came with the case...correct?

That temperature on your cpu is WAYY to high. Which X1800 do u have? The X1800XT, X1800XL, or the X1800GTO? To respond to spooked, the X1800XT needs 32 amps
