What happened with my x1950pro? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
IT IS overheating due to nothing on the VRMs. You need to get the VRM heat spreader which is here http://www.arctic-cooling.com/vga2.p...0&data=3&disc=. On the x1950pro the VRM heat spreader is built into the stock heatsink, if you want to use the accerlo x2 you need that heat spreader.

The problem in changing to the stock heatsink again is that this metal thing that goes under the card is very hard to put back on.... anyone has any ideas how to make it easier?

PS: Anyone knows if this thing is sold separately anywhere? 'couse when i was taking it away to put the accelero x2, i kinda left some visible marks in the process and if anyone look to it, will know that the stock heatsink was once removed....
