NVIDIA GeForce 6800 XT

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
my friend has a 6800 xt he wants a temp monitoring program. what program does everyone use and what is a good temp to run at.

he started to get artifacting but didn't overclock the card so i suggested that it might be to hot in his case. is there anything else that might be causing his problem.

I had that card back in teh day - it was a beast of an overclocker.

If he's artifacting, tell him to reinstall the drivers. If that doesn't solve it, then it MIGHT be the power supply. But doubtful.

More than likely, the card is just about to fry. I had mine on a 60% GPU OC for almost a year, and I never had an artifact.

Also keep in mind that the 6800XT was made exclusively on defective boards that were leftover from manufacturing the 6800GT (That's why the 6800XT is limited to 8 pipelines, but the GT had 12 - boards that didn't have 12 functioning pipelines were relegated to "XT" status).

As such, I would imagine that the XT's probably tend to degrade over time. THat is pure speculation, though.

At any rate, you can pick up good condition used 6800XT's on ebay now for ~$40 - so either way your friend will be ok.
