vf700 installation problems! :( - Page 2

post #11 of 23
did you remember to put the Vf-700 fan thing in one of the BLACK ports? If you put it in one of the white ports then it will be running at 7v instead of 12v and therefore will cool less efficiently. Make sure its in one of the BLACK ports, because basically you cant hear a difference, and the black port cools alot more efficiently.

Hey there, i have the same cooler on my vid card, granted my card is an agp version, but the one most inportant thing to be certain of is that the bottom surface of the vf700 is making perfect contact with the gpu.. i had to move some of the fins a little to make them fit around the capacitors on the vid card, my temps will rise 10c or so when gaming or benching but they do stabilize and you should not see the countinuos increase like you did. The vid card shut down b/c it got too hot, i don't think its damaged but i would verify that the vf700 is properly seated on the gpu. Good luck.

you can go 5% up on the gpu and 10% up on the ddr memory

i hope for you the x800 gt02 is not broke

ATITool does work on all pre-1Kxxx cards; the beta version works on all ATI and nvidia cards. ATI tray tools are also available (never used them myself but people say their good)http://downloads.guru3d.com/download.php?det=733.
A VF-700Cu is so much better than the stock cooler on the GTO, there should be no question about that.

ok thanks for the advice!


No my cpu is stock settings. Was not going to OC till the summer, still learning more. Thats whats odd. I use Stoxx as well. It came with the card. It seems good but it also hangs up around 4

Haha I dont know if the x800 is working or not? I mean i can run games fine.
I manually clocked it to 450Mhz and Mem to 505. And i loaded up LOTR2 and it ran fine.

Ill try BF2 and see how it goes.

Thanks

Do you have the latest drivers? Sometimes that can cause problems.

I remember reading that GTOs and maybe even GTO2s were not shipping with r480s anymore. Maybe he got a x800xl core instead of a x850xt, that would explain the relatively low overclocks.

Edit: fiercetiger, give this a read to see if you can unlock pipes in your card.http://www.overclock.net/ati-drivers...x700-x800.html

Hey

yah i checked to see if i could unlock the other day and i had the same values. Also my friend bought the same card as me at the same time and he bought a VGA cooling pipe from zalman and hes getting x850 speeds. so it must be how i installed the v700. Also when i ran PCMark05 it showed that i have a X850 Core with a X800 driver.

I think my v700 may not be making great contact with the GPU...i shud try it again for like the 8th time! haha maybe im just not good at installing this thing.

For the ppl who have one did you screw it all the way down? i find when i do this one side lifts up a bit.

Thanks
