ChucuSCAD - I have the all in wonder 9600XT. I don't have a Overdrive tab in my advanced settings. I read this on the ATI website today and tried to find a download for it, but never found it on their web site.

Mine is an ATI 9600XT so I guess / hope it can monitor temps, but does it do this with software? I didn't see anything in the software that came with the card that contains info on temp monitoring.

MonsterMac - I have 2 of them. The one in the PC is working great with the Zalman Heat Pipe now. (That was the second one I bought) The first one I bought is still broken.

QUESTION:
DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THERE IS SOME FREEWARE OR SOMETHING THAT WILL MONITOR THE TEMP OF THE VGA CARD?

I have been communicating with one of the ATI guys. He said I can send it in for repair and pay to have it fixed. He said I needed to put the stock fan back on it and include a note that said I would pay for the repair. He said it might cost $60.00 or so plus shipping.

I actually found a 22ml tube for about 10 bucks and am ordering it. The original 9600XT was broken. I think it was because I acutally used the small screwdriver that Zalman includes in the package to tighten the bolts on the card. This time they are finger tightened, but still tight enough have a go...

I also covered up the holes in the front of the case since there are no fans there and they are allowing a lot of air to escape in the wrong direction.

Suggestions to make case air flow better

I wish I had read SPCR recommended cases prior to my purchase, but I had not found the site yet. I bought the Neo Classic by GMC which happens to be the very case that Mike C said was not designed well for air flow. I visited with Mike and have drilled 2 80MM holes in the bottom of the case. I now h...

I have almost the same thing in my PC. You can turn the knob on the controller almost all the way down and it keeps the CPU more than cool enough. Mine is running 34C as I type according to Motherboard Monitor and the fan on the 7000 is so low I can't hear it.

Mike,

Are there any fans you would like me to buy and send to you? I don't know what you have in your stock since you started this, but would be willing to buy them through the business and then donate to you.

We visited about this the other day. I am willing to help when / if i can.
