Quick question.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
If I turn the fan up on my 6800GS to 100% will I be able to bios flash it without any artifacts? I ask this because I have no money so I can't buy a zalman.

Sorry if it dident make much sense, I have a bad flu. : (

16/6 but if that's too much I could maybe do a little lower. If that dosen't make the card all weird.

I'm not going to say definitely because there is always the chance something might just not agree with it.

I remember seeing that flashing thing on the AGP 6800 card and the performance increase was very negligible.

Worth messing with the "unlock pipe" idea? I don't think so, should've spent and extra $80 and gotten a 7800 GT w/20 pipes. I thought about getting a 7800 GT but I seriously doubt that I would've seen that much improvement.

The 6800 GS as it is, packs enough power to satisfy most of the people here, can't really say that SLI is very helpful on a LAN Party or even on the internet. My nephew plays on-line on a 6600 GT at stock speeds fine, gets like 80fps in UT2K4.
