Thanks SRX660, those all look good. Also I read your thread about CPU temps.
Is 55 to 60 hot for a Fx-60?
As far as cooking that card, well I am really not to sure. It was having driver issues when I got it and it ran really hot. So I downloaded the ATI tool, to control it as best I could. Even with the stock fan at 100% the 3d artifact got the temps up to 80 and 90. I was concerned so got that AccelX2. Temps never broke 63 under heavy loads, but I was still having driver issues. Sapphire Tech was no help at all. Finally weeks later, I got CCC 7.1 and the lastest drivers loaded and it ran ok. This was after a reformat.... I put some games in and the screen would glitch every now and then. Me and my buddy ran multiple tests on the MOBO and all hardware components (using micro) only to find the memory failing every test in every category on the new X1950XT. I slaved my old x800xl and hoped for the best. The 800 passed and mobo pci e slot is ok.
Don't know what happened or how, maybe bad card or perhaps operator error.
So far I have had the 9700 9800 800 and 1950. I guess its time for a change.Obnoxious, annoying text format removed
