I think I may have killed my X1950!? Help .. - Page 3

post #21 of 27
Hi all

I have recently bought a Dell E521, and installed a x1950xt. As the Dell PSU wasnt powerful enough i added a Thermaltake Power Express 250W. Now i am running vista 32 bit as well which may be affecting the results i have been getting.

When i go into the ATI overdrive section i ran the automated clock configuration and it set the values as seen in the attachment below. Can someone explain to me if i am able to alter these to improve performance?

Also i ran the 3dmark06 test and scored 5804 which on a graph of other similar systems showed me pretty low. TESTS 3 and 4 hardly ran at all (i think they were CPU tests). Now i didnt think my computer was that bad so why am i getting such poor results. CSS stress test gives me 189.9 fps which im told is pretty good.

Im thinking of buying a Zalman v-900 today as a replacement for the x1950xt's stock cooler is this going to make much of a difference?

Thank you for your patience in advance,

Danny

Hi there

thanks for the quick reply! An hr 03 wont fit in my Case unfortunatly i have already had to mod the Case and the stock cooler to fit. Zalmans come quite recommended on other sites for the x1950xt why wouldnt you suggest this?

I downloaded Ati tool and whn i open it the message below appears? Now it still goes into the program but im not sure what it message means, what services do i need to have running?

regards

Danny, you should probably start a separate thread to get some help with this.
