Re: Aftermarket GPU Cooler Compatibility Question

For example Zalman VF900-Cu, Ice Hammer IH-650B or Thermaltake Fanless 330. But there's more, much more. Those all look damn good, but after buying a X850 PE that was DOA because the board was taco'd from a aftermarket heatsink without a backplate (just 2 springloaded thumbscrews), I'll probably go …

Aftermarket GPU Cooler Compatibility Question

So, I have a the Quadro FX version of the FX-5900 Ultra and in the interests of longevity I'd like to add an aftermarket cooler to it. I've been looking for the NV-Silencer 4 Version 2 without any luck. However, Aerocooler has the "AVC-NV4 NV Silencer 4" for sale on Amazon. Does anyone know if this …

FX5900 Ultra/Quadro FX 3000 Thermal Pad thickness

I recently acquired a Quadro FX 3000 card for a DX7-8 based Windows ME build. As of now it seems to be working well (haven't installed the driver I'm waiting for my P4 651 to show up), so refurbishment is the next step. What thickness thermal pad do these heatsinks accept under the ram heatsinks or …

Re: HIS X1950 Pro issues

Try installing driver from device manager (manually choosing .inf file). The driver itself SEEMS to install fine, but I get an error when I try to run 3dmark saying Direct3d isn't installed. Dxdiag says everything is fine,though, so I thought there might be something going on with the install …

Re: HIS X1950 Pro issues

Well, an update: the seller of the FireGl got around to testing it and apparently its functional (It'would have been nice if he had tested it before hand it would have saved both of us alot of trouble). This suggests I have a broken/dying Mobo, pending testing the Firegl X1 I have on order in it. …

Re: HIS X1950 Pro issues

You probably shouldn't believe what the onboard measurements say though. It's unlikely to be accurate. Maybe there is some value in watching what happens to the voltage when the CPU goes from idle to load, but I'm not sure about that either. Yeah, but it tracks pretty closely to what is reported in …

Re: HIS X1950 Pro issues

Honestly, I took a look in some older threads and saw that there were some Socket A boards that had a EATX 12 volt line that actually didn't take as much juice from that port as as a Intel board would. It seemed like it was Via based boards that were under that suspicion primarily, but there's so …

Re: HIS X1950 Pro issues

Update. I ordered a FireGL x3. If it doesn't work either, I'm going to be strongly suspicious that this is actually a PSU issue. I have a hard time believing I could wind up with 3 bricked cards in a row! Also, I just finished recapping my i845 board, so i'll soon have another board to compare with …

Re: HIS X1950 Pro issues

Sounds about right for a X1950 Pro. Try setting FSB to 133Mhz in bios. If the computer takes longer or completely stops locking up at least you will have ruled out AGP incompatibilities. Ok, just tried it. It still locks up, but it acts differently. While it was loading test 3 in 3dmark 01SE I got …

Re: HIS X1950 Pro issues

Yeah, power is a possible issue, but I thought the nf2 boards got most of their juice from the 12v rail like intel boards Depends on the motherboard, not the chipset. If the board used the 4-pin 12v connector it should be using 12v for the CPU. Seems like your FIC does. The X1950 Pro also takes …

Re: HIS X1950 Pro issues

X1950 is pretty tame when it comes to AGP compatibility or so I found. You can check my K8 system’s configuration, driver version and 3DMark01 run results here: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=33459&start=700#p724957 When someone says K7 and lockup my instinctual suspicion is a weak 5V …

Re: HIS X1950 Pro issues

It certainly could be. I'm not very familiar with the quirks of the AGP X1950 though. I haven't used a bridged ATI card in ages. I think ideally you would use Catalyst 7.11 or older. Catalyst 7.12 has a major OpenGL overhaul that breaks some older games like KOTOR. They dropped support for a bunch …

Re: HIS X1950 Pro issues

Could it be a flaky motherboard throwing things off/conflicting with the bridge chip?? This is an OEM (eMachines) board after all. The only thing that's gotten anything other than a sudden hang was disabling agp spread spectrum in the bios. I managed to get a flickering screen then a black screen …

HIS X1950 Pro issues

I recently bought an x1950 pro to mate with my K7 based Windows XP system, however I'm having issues with it. Basically it locks up within a few minutes of starting a 3d accelerated app. I've tried both the most recent catalyst driver as well as an older one. I've also tried disabling fast write, …
