X1950XT With Stock Cooling....

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
When I get a X1950XT 256mb (Not sure about getting 512 version or not.. a bit much money, advice?) with stock cooling would I be able to overclock it a lot without it overheating or getting to stupidly high temperatures? and to what overclock should I manage to get....

Well, my 1950xtx (traded my 7900gtx straight up for it gets here early next week and i am anticipating high overclocks along with high temps.. Due to the nature of the 7900gtx i was able to get away with medium/poor case airflow (overclocked temps never went over 54c).. I dont think i will be so fortunate overclocking the 1950xtx.. Especially if i plan a decent overclock.. So in anticipation im upgrading my case fans in my Aspire Navigator..

With the 80mm fan whipping away from the case door directly on the card and the 120mm sucking things out the back im sure i will have a cool surroundings for a decent overclock..

Nice deal!
I'm getting a Thermaltake Kandalf Case for it and £200 ($400) watercooling (only for CPU) so now troubles with that for me
