ATi X1900GT overclocking & cooling - Page 2

post #11 of 60
Damn... My is rev2. Man i hate that they just go ahead and make another produkt and stil call it a X1900GT... Lucky my runs 580Mhz and 700mhz with that standard cooler. Man i hoped for a serious overclock but no. Hmm i think ill put a vf900CU on it and see what i cant get out of it. Isnt that the best cooler after water?

Nah the Sytrin/Masscool ku cooling is better, so is Thermalright's New VGA cooler HR-01.

I got my 1900gt running 700/800 when I game and temps don't go above 60C after hours. Could go further but I don't feel i need to OC it anymore nor do i want to take the time to.

Also if you are OC'ing ur 1900gt, put a 80mm or anything u want over the voltage regulators. I strapped on a quiet 80mm using zip ties too cool them, helped alot.

I have decided to put a Danger Den Acetal 4 GPU waterblock on it.. I have watercooling on my E6300@2Ghz so its not that hard to install.. And then ill put a 120mm on each side of the card.. That should do it, right? I allready have a 120mm on the backsie of the card because of the texture units where running at 50C and thats not good.. But now with the litte 120mm they are running at a nice 30C... Man i hope to reach atleast 600mhz on the core.
Btw is it good to have them little zalman alu files on the ram? Some says it has the uppersite effect and heat up the ram insteed of cooling it?

Revision 2 has different voltage regulators. The X1900XT/XTX and rev1 GT have 5 to 7 small regulators under that long thin heatsink and they get very very hot. (mine get hotter than the GPU). The second rev only has 3 of those regulators and a better heatsink.

Can anybody post a picture of them 3 regulators on the rev2 sapphire card? As i´ve written i am going to put a waterblock on the card, and it sounds like i better put a little zalman ram heatsink on the regulators

Dos it improve overclocke and the health of the card to put the small zalman ramcoolers on the ram?
