im still getting artifacts :(

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
i tryied everything i was able to to cold down my video card... i used 2x 80cm fans blowing on it then i used bathroom air warmer ( it can blow only cold air without heating option )

im setting 630/1245 (525/1100 stock) i get in 3dmark03 around 60 C ( i think its like 140 F ) on gpu so i think thats a nice temp for this oc but i still get artefacts in 3dmark and aquamark... what else can i do ? do i need a vmod or maybe ram heatsinks ? if core is not so hot with this oc level can ram get overheated ?

Ya for sure ram can get overheated.
You could try a volt mod, it may not help, but it may help.
I dunno what regular clocks are for that card but it may just be too high.

I meant normal oced clocks.
And 630 is your core clock, so putting on ramsinks wont help that at all.
And it may not help your memory clock much either cus memory doesnt get THAT hot.
DOesnt hurt to try tho.

what do u mean by saying normal oc'ed clocks ? u got me confiused right now uhm core clock is not getting overheated ( 140 F when overclocked from 525 to 630 mhz ) so i think memory with extra fan should be a bit colder right ? or thats not enough and thats why im getting artefacts. i was reading once that artefacts are only caused due to ram overheated

my cooling system during thous tests :

No there are different artifacts for memory and core.
Do you even have ram sinks on??

And by normal oced clocks I mean the average clocks that most people get on that card.

oh now i understand. havent found anybody with a videocard like mine who overclocked it so cant tell. the other thing is with ram sinks. i dont have them and im would like to buy onse but im not sure if they will fit under this cooler :/
and for this question i was also unable to find any answer. since its an agp vesrion i have diferent layout of ram, they are closer to core.

btw regular oc of 6600gt with 2.0ns memory and stock speeds at 500/1000mhz is like 570/1200mhz. i thought with 1.6 i will get some more

Try lowering your core clock until you don't get artifacts.
