I might have to look into the Zalman cooler. Does anyone know if it will fit the X1800XL? I noticed that the cpu score was lower then the GFX score in AM3 so that tells me that the processor is bottlenecking the gfx card. So I took the vid card and put it into my other rig (the one with the 650) and ran the benchmark again and got a score ~81000. The P4 650 was OC'd to 4.4Ghz and the vid card was at stock speeds. I ran all the benchies again (3dmark05, 03, 01se) and noticed a decent increase in all the test scores. That leaves me to believe that it wasn't the card that sux, it was the processor. I think my X1800 XL has a new home.
