XFX 8800GTS 512 + Arctic S1 + RAM/FET sinks

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have an XFX 8800GTS 512 Alpha Dog that I have replaced the stock cooling on with an Arctic Cooling Accelero S1 (Noctua NT-H1 TIM), Enzotech forged copper RAM sinks (3M thermal tape), and the S1 ram sinks on the card's FETs (attached with thined Arctic Silver epoxy). A 92mm Panflow has been attached (with hot glue) to the S1 directly over the core, so that it cools the memory and FETs well.

The card as been flashed to 783MHz core 1836MHz shader and 999MHz (DDR 1998) memory. These settings have been used for 9 months with no hint of problems and have passed 24 hours of ATiTools artifact scanner, 100 loops of test 2 and 3 in 3dmark 2003, 12 hours of FurMark 1.5 xtreme burning mode (never going above 69C in an 85F room), and played everything I've thrown at it with no sign of instability or artifacting.

I will include the original packaging, all original components (including the stock heatsink), and a disk to reflash the card to the stock BIOS if necissary.

The card has been registered and the warranty should still be intact and transferable to a new owner. The card can be flashed to stock, and all the sinks should be removable without damaging the card, with a modest amount of work work (and a large amount of solvent). The serial number sticker has been removed without any damage and is on a piece of wax paper inside the original anti-static bag, so the card can be soaked in alcohol or acetone, if necissary (I've done it before, it doesn't hurt anything, and the card is way cleaner than it was new).

No voltage mods have ever been done or attempted with this card.

As is, it is roughly as fast as a stock 9800GTX+, maybe a touch faster at 1680x1050 and below.

What's it worth?
