3dMark03 - 8183
PNY 6600GT @ 540/1000 w/ 76.41 Drivers
thanks for the info chennhui02,erm ok investing in hsf and cooling system..where should i start ? any tips ? my 6600Gt idle temp is 58 degrees..and full load is bout 80...air condition on it is lower by bout 4 degrees
babelon, either you GPU temperature is too high or you are using Forceware 7x.xx which has temperature bug. Try follow some threads at Driver Section if you like to find out. FYI, my previous AGP 6600GT clocked at 500/900 has 45c(idle) and 55c(load). Even with my 6600GT PCIe clocked at 585/1290 has much lower temperature than yours (Max 58c after playing hours of games). Make sure you has good ventilation on your casing.
im using forceware 71.84 and bout the temperature..i used rivatuner to monitor it..btw my case is crap with only one fan at back exhaling air out..im thinking of modding my case and installing two other fans inhaling from the side and front panel..im using icute 450w psu
Hehe, XG76.41 run well on my card. My older system with P3 Tualatin were using an icute 430W. Since it has been lots of performance and stability associated with factory approved PSU, especially when come to overclocking. Some value PSU is unable to deliver constant stable output. Thus I has decided using better "branded" power supply. I has shortlisted a few i.e. OCZ, Antec, Silverstorm, Cooler Master. Finally I has settle down on Cooler Master Real Power 450W. Aside from what is listed mo my left panel, I has a RAID adapter, 4 HDDs, 2 DVD ROM with 4 case fans. Since my PSU come with power meter and I had monitored total system power consumption i.e. ~100W idle and 150W under loads.
mmm...do u think adding a few more fans to my case would affect the power supply ? i got no extras hdd or anything else and monitor is direct powered
You monitor will not draw any current from the PSU, instead, using the AC power. You should not has any trouble when adding more fans. Each fan with be ~5watts or less. Post some benci on your new rig, i.e. AquaMark/3DMark01 (stressing CPU-memory-GPU) or 3DMark03/05 that is more GPU oriented.
alright bout adding the case fan..where should i put them and anywhere is fine cause im gonna cut off my case to give room for more fan emplacement
hmmm in winter temps (around 5C) are 31C/45C
now warmer (around 20) is 38C/49C
urs is way too hot
btw: the temp bug only affects cards with clocks lower than 400mhz
6600gts not effected
I think my temperatures (45 - 55) should be correct for tropical climate country 365 days 30C.
but nabelon temperature of 80c is too dangerous... did you check your HSF? There has been some case where the HSF not properly attached for PCIe version. http://anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=2295
3DMark 03 --- 9352 @ 40c On water with pny verto 6600gt! Core clock @591Mhz Mem @ 1.1 Ghz w/ 76.41 drivers. I guess thats prety good for a 6600!!!!
ok... today, is crazy day in CA
ok im cold
guess wut... my gpu temp just fell to 28C... ambiet 30
cpu 36C mobo 22C
80c temp is no more dangerous then drinking 3 bottles of coke
how 3 bottles of coke dangerous
unless not dangerous at all...
or maybe u mite explode!!!
hehe, untill you got 80c on your GPU then you will know the feeling... Then you will have no time for coke. LOL
yep no time for coke
TIME FOR PEPSI!!!!
how come 6600gts get that hot... i thought only 6800s get that hot
i think u need to check if the hs/fan is attached well and that there is paste inbetween the core and the hs
Heh, some day i will hit 4K
Very nice score with that CPU Satrab
Don't want to overclock my CPU as I'm happy with current FPS in games but I even doubt I can clock it to get the same score as urs
I am sure you can score higher then me but if you are happy then there is no sence in it
