Without volt modding, possible to keep the 1782 strap stable on a 9800GT

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 


This 9800GT I'm using at work has no problem folding @ 675/1674...I figured if I downclocked a little from there (600 core) I could raise the shader, but the 54 Mhz strap is killing me. 1728 is working fairly well, but I'm having issues with the 1782 strap. I've been moving the core around, and I'm back to stock on the core (555). Suffice to say it won't do the 1782 strap?

gimme a pencil

actually, with the 9800's I can do it thru software, eh? MSI Afterburner?

(btw, for you really sick people, the EVGA OC Scanner beats the pee pee out of cards...89C before it started artifacting, 1728 shaders, LOL) XD

No, I dont think you can do software voltmod on a 9800GT with afterburner...

It really just depends on the card. My 9800GT did 1728 and it ran nice and cool.

BIOS flashing or hardware mod is the only way to go if you want to push it further.
Try downclocking memory/core as much as you can and get some more air on the card, better temps always helps.

Mine used to be stable at 1782... after a while it just wouldn't Fold at it anymore though, so 1728 is the highest it can go now.

how hot is it running at those clocks?
When was the last time it had its TIM and thermal pads replaced?
both my 8800GT's got to about the same as you, but I pulled 'em apart replaced that stuff and blew out the dust and they are both running 702/1836 now.
I got annoyed with the fan whine though so these days they both have them Zalman GV-1000 (highly recommended and cheap) and at 28C ambient they are folding at 54C (20+C drop from standard HSF's)

My 9800GT is 100% stable at 702/900/1782 no matter what I throw at it.
But I generally keep it at what is listed in my sig seeing how it only gives me slight artifacts in synthetic benchmarks.
I don't fold however so I can't comment on that

I had mine to 1775, so at the 1782 Shaders.. only thing was if the temp went above a certain point it would EUE.
I sold two of them and still have one left, but yea heat is what set me back for stable.
