I ordered a cooling system for my radeon 9800pro. take a look and let me know what you think. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=35-186-110&DEPA=0 i've been a little worried about my 9800pro - some problems on boot occassionaly and the fan runs loud while gaming. also, when I had my case open to add mem boards, the vid card fan had "burned out" dust residue on the exterior.
looks like it should as long as u have good cross flow of air in your computter to start off with. me i got a CPU water block an it is tied in to the GPU too.
thanks. what water cooling system do you have? what mobo, case, gpu?
i will get it to you on newegg url http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16835124007
how do u check the cpu's temp???
I hold my hand over the back exhaust vents and I can also hear the psu fan and vga fan - go very high when i'm gaming. Unfortunately, it's a dell and there are no temperature monitoring features.
Get everest home edition, it will tell you temps.
That new cooler looks brilliant. The 9800PRO is notorious for overheating problems, and anything is better than the crappy stock HSF unit that comes with the card. :cort:
As for checking your temperature, all recent motherboards have thermal sensors built in to them, to allow the BIOS to monitor the overall temperature of your system, and perform an emergency shutdown if it rises too high.
There are several utilities out there that make this temperature data available in Windows; SiSoftware Sandra, Motherboard Monitor 5, et al, ad nauseum. These should at least give you a forewarning if your system begins to run warmer than usual.
Hope this helps. ;)
I didn't make it!
these really do the job better. i have the zalman 700 CPU type and its amazing.
