Ive ran a GTS450 at 1066mhz benching under water. The card refused to go higher despite the low temp.



1060mhz kombustor.

Nice use of the chipset block.
Temps are pretty good too taking that into consideration

Thanks

And yes, this is a nice use of a MCW30 temps were impressive considering this is a very thin base chipset bloc.

Considering the temps you could try flashing the bios to allow a higher voltage and thus a higher overclock. 44 C at load leaves a lot of room for a higher overclock.
post #16 of 26
I dont have the card anymore, had it for about a week, played with it and sold. Had 2 GTX460s that i WCed with MCW80, then 2 GTX580s EK.

These little GTS450 are some very good card. They also have good OC headroom. Being able to game on decent settings for about 100box, priceless

Maybe with a fan on the VRMs.

Wouldn't a thin base be a good thing for heat transfer? Or did you mean something along the lines of a very thin basic chipset block?

Yes a thin base isnt bad. But the MCW30 base is flat ( inside ). Making the heat transfer only effective on a flat surface between water and base.

The GTS450 GPU is very small and not producing that much heat. A directCU GTS450 can run 1ghz without issue since they also have something on the VRMs.

And yes, i had a fan blowing at the VRM when WCed

OIC that makes more sense. Lack of turbulence is your knock against it not the thinness of the base.

I'm also a big fan of those Asus cards, I think they had the best hardware (VRM heatsinks when nobody else did etc.) of that generation for the mid tier cards. I have a 460 one of those that will do 940Mhz 24/7 folding stable and more than 900Mhz everything stable.

Yep, my SLI GTX460 could run over 900mhz benching.


This was when the GTX460 came out :

SLI GTX460 under MCW80 + GTS450 MCW30 PhysX
