9800 Pro cooling break through!!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I was bored so I thought it would be fun to try to rig up some custom cooling for my 9800 pro. I kept the same heatsink but removed the cheapo fan from it and bolted the AMD fan that came with my sempron 64 on it how it blows on the heat sink and the RAM, and now it overclocks from 378/338 to 450/390!!
With my old overclock (425/375) it idled at 136*F now under full load it never goes above 100*F.
It came in 600 points below the X800 Pro on the ATI Tray tools benchmark!
And get this...it's only a R350 core!

I'm proud...

That's pretty cool. I seriously need to change the HSF on my 6600LE. Stupid thing never goes below 60C. Load can get up to 75, so it's just a tad bit warm . I think I might be able to come up with something.

If you have an old P3 fan or Athlon XP or K6 fan laying around, try sticking it on there with a 80mm fan over the memory, that would boost your OC for sure.

I was thinking of trying to scrounge a panflo L1A and rubber-banding it Lightsource-style to the card .
