Thanks


Why would it be any different from a single card?

still looking for just a reference 6950/6970 cooler for cheap to rma mine?
post #3775 of 3890
Just bought a new 6970 to go with my 6990 over Ebay. biggrin.gif

Was contemplating dual 6990s but I think it'd melt the insides of my case and Trifire seems perfect for gaming.

Look for a hysteresis setting, which is a small temperature range that must be overcome before the fan RPM changes. I have mine set to 3c. Don't set the ramp too low for the fan to handle or it will run on high all the time, or run with high rpm more than it needs to.

You can tell when it's working. You can see the rpms and temps of the cards, not to mention the loads. I tried Trixx twice, about six months or so apart. It would never work on the second card. I asked around in forums, and found other people having the same issue. Six months or so later I tried it again in case they had corrected the issue, but it still didn't work. That was about a year ago, so I don't know if it's been updated in the mean time, but afterburner solved the issue and I've been using it since.

That's a good choice. I have used the AS Thermal Adhesive, and it really works well. One thing to remember though is that it's like an epoxy, so don't count on getting it off once it's set.

and

http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX5187

We use the MX5186 to add heatsinks onto smt ICs in TVs and monitors when needed. Way better than thermal tape, but more permanent. Don't use too much, keep it away from chip pins. The MX5187 is supposed to be non capacitive, but the 5186 may be a bit better TIM.

Hey guys. Many seller at my place having a clearance stock for Sapphire 6950 2GB ref. @ MYR429($140), but the warranty has been reduced to 1-year. Do you think its a good buy? Currently using 5770. frown.gif
