  1. Seconded on underclocking. If it helps, RMA the card (better yet, get a refund from the place of purchase). Posts over on Anandtech and HardOCP forums confirmed that the GTO is using the 1.1ns Samsung memory that was the likely cause of the early deaths of many 7900GT(X) cards, albeit downclocked, undervolted and tighter timings compared to the GTX. eVGA's "reloaded" series of 7900GTX cards use the new Infineon memory. Basically, GTO is "new" (not refurb'd) excess that manufacturers are tossing to make way for G80. http://forums.anandtech.com/messageview.as...hreadid=1937749 http://www.hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1104346 http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread...?t=77457&page=4 (comments by eVGA's Jacob Freeman) I was about to pick one up myself, but decided against it - I had several 7900GTs with the Samsungs go bad on me.
  2. Thank you all for the oh so useful responses. /sarcasm As I said in an earlier post, I am looking for recomendations on a heatsink for the 6600GT. If you have no recommendations, please do not reply.
  3. 70C while gaming. Or higher. Things start to artifact. Airflow is semi-okay. There is a problem with the card, that's why I'm asking about the better fan/heatsink.
  4. Bump. Another question, where can I find a better heatsink and fan for my 6600GT? I'm starting to see some serious heat issues with it.
  5. I'm getting random BSODs in Guild Wars after an hour or two of gameplay with my 6600GT. Every time it crashes and gives me a BSOD, I catch a glimpse of it saying that nv---.dll has forced the critical stop. Temps are reported as 70C in the nVidia control panel for the card. Using ForceWare 77.72 stable. Or not, if that's what you call it. Ideas?
  6. Bumping thread. This bothers me for some odd reason. It reads as ~1023 in Windows, but only when I'm running 623-3. How odd.
  7. Shut up, plzkthx. You may not care, but some of us do.
  8. Yeah, I just tried reflashing back to 310, I'm seeing 1048576K (all memory). Good to see that I'm not the only one, then. How would we go ahead and report this as a bug to Oskar Wu? Angry_Games? (I'd personally send an e-mail to his @dfi.tw address, but I can't write in script for the life of me, haven't done so since I was twelve :shake: ) Bollocks. And I was really starting to like 623 and Cool'N'Quiet, too :/

  10. .... Now that I think about it, I think I clearly remember seeing 1048576K upon boot. Each stick by itself shows up as 511MB (it used to show up as 512MB in memtest, at least as far as I remember!?) Uh, what does this mean? :confused:
  11. I think I'm either losing my memory or my mind. I could swear that during bootup the screen would test through and show me as having 1048576K of memory instead of a little bit less. I could also swear seeing 1024MB in Memtest86+ instead of 1023MB like it does now just a few hours ago. Did I accidentally mis-set something when I flashed up to 623 or is something else wrong? :confused:
