I too thank you. Very good information. I also have a 4850 with a S1 rev2 on it and was hoping to reuse it, but was concerned with the placement on reference boards. One other question for you, does your HIS card properly down clock your GPU and Mem (and/or down volt) while idle? I've heard of some ...

I'll second that!

I'll second the Accelero S1 rev2. I have that on my 4850 running passive. It's great. Low temps and no sound :D

Can't go wrong with that.

Same issue here...

I just ran into the same problem with my SOLO case. I tried "going out the front", but it just did not fit (so close...). I had to bite the bullet and remove the mobo.

Back in early March, MikeC said that at some point he'd be testing the lower power Enermax models to see how the noise/power curve changes, and also to confirm that the performance of the reviewed 625w version was not a fluke. I just wondered if there was any ETA for this review yet, as I'd be very...

Anyone here got the 4850 and tried cooling it passively? I've already found some horror stories about overheating VRMs, people hacksawing original heatsinks, using fans to cool the card... Just a heads up, I have the ASUS EAH4850 in a new build. I didn't like the card's fan noise or the temps, so I...

I just updated my BOIS on this board (from 8/28 to 9/13) and my NB temps has shot up in speed fan to around 55C. I verified this with the finger test. It's around 2 seconds before it needs to be removed. I'm not sure if they just raised the voltage to the NB, or what. Does anyone know how to check t...

Re: Update

Nice. That should be one of the best AMD matx mobos so it's good to hear it's working well with speed fan. Armed with this info---you should try running the 2 faster fans 1+3, down around 800 rpm,or #3 at 800 or less and the CPU set up variable with 1060 the max speed. You can run 10C hotter in eac...

At what speed does the fan on it run and whats the noise level ? What case do you use ? And what brand are ...

BioStar TA690G and Speedfan 4.33

So, on the speedfan site, it is indicated that in this new version of speedfan (4.33) "ATI SB600, Intel ICH9 and nVidia MCP55 SMBus are fully supported and devices are discovered through them." I'm thinking, "Great! I just got a SB600 board." So I downloaded it and gave it a try on my new build: Bio...

It's strongly recommended to update BIOS to 0828 version. It fixed manual memory timing problem (now we can set manual memory timing, and it will stay across CPU multiplier changes). Where did you get the 0828 BIOS from? I do not see it on this page. Edit: OK, I found it on this page. -Deliriou5

Where to find...

Well, I got mine off of E-bay. They had "end users" selling them, along with e-bay e-tailers. I did end up having a problem with mine, so I RMA'd it back to Gigabite. It was still under its 3 year warrenty :wink: The one I got back from them works great.

Temp monitoring

Hey all, I have this card just found out that you can use RivaTuner 2.0 RC 15.8 to monitor the GPU temp. I had always heard that this could not be done, so I was very happy to find out that it can be done. Mine is Idling around 57 C in my 38 C case. It hit 71 in the aquamark3 benchmark. Just an FYI ...

However, if such a low power card as the X700 is adequate for your needs you could use a passive cooler to get a noiseless cooling solution. I thought that the jump from a 8500 to something in this "low power card" range would be enough of a jump that it will be worth the $100 - $150 price. Since I...
