6600gt cooling issue

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
i bought a XFX 6600gt i know its old etc but i don't play much games! there isn't any good ones seriously! im bored of all that crap! i just needed a crisp display for a value price....but the fan is soloud! i paid a lot of money to make my computer dead silent but now this is just ridiculous! What cooling should i buy, i need something very very quiet and has to cool well and be cheap! and also i boot up and it gives me the error that the 6600gt has not got enough power so it is going to reduce its performance to overcome this, i have a decent 500w PSU, anyway to overcome this? thanks

did you plug in any additional power cords it needs? personally I don't know the card well enough to know if it needs any...

As for cooling you could get a passive cooler....

A 6600GT on AGP without a power plug? I was certain that they required one on AGP.

That's Rivatuner and not nTune. You're right if you were to control your motherboard though.

right click your desktop, then click Nvidia control panel, then from there choose temperature, or performance tab and it is in there somewhere, you'll find a slider, first you have to check off that you want to control it then slide it to the level of power you want...
