X700LE temp sensor

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,
i new here btw. Well i have a Gecube X700LE and i've overclocking fine i got it from stock 400/500 (ddr effective,250Mhz normal) to 480/550 fine but now i am buying a vf700 Alcu led to overclock futher but i want to know my limted but i think my temp sensor is disable since i can't see it in ati tray tool nor ati tool. now i am perrty sure that based on the x700 pcb layout i should have a LM63 temp sensor cuz the only diff betwen le and pro is clock speed and ram type. i recently found a Sapphire X700 Pro 256mb bios with 400/250 clock and are for 4.0ns ram which is my ram so i wonder should i flash my card to this bios to enable temp sensor althorugh it seems abit werid for an x700pro to be at that clock and have that ram. If so do you guys have any idea is there any program to flash gfx card bios live, cuz my floopy is F$#%ed.
thx

Welcome, are you absolutely sure your card has a temp sensor? They might have dropped it to save money, and maybe that is what makes it a LE and not a Pro. ( along with clocks and other factors )
My 9800 doesn't have a temp sensor either, which is quite annoying, but I just feel the core after use to see how warm it is. As long as it isn't more than warm to touch you shouldn't worry, but if it burns it may need some more cooling. Make sure the power's off first if you try this though.

I personally haven't flashed a card yet, but I think it is possible with a bootable CD of some sort. I found this on google, see if it helps.
