Re: Voodoo 5 Throttling

It has to do with timings on the VGA cable. I have the same issue. It is a 4:3 card after all from a CRT age. It can sort of do 1920x1080, but not really. Not on most modern displays. Older displays can stretch the image to fill the screen horizontally. Thanks that clears up the last of my issues. …

Re: Voodoo 5 Throttling

SSD's will definitely throttle themselves if they get too hot. How many amps does your power supply have on the 5 volt rail? I'm not sure, got everything working and don't want to go digging in again right now. I do have one other question though. How come the output of the Voodoo 5 is squished at …

Re: Voodoo 5 Throttling

That sounds like your power supply isn't able to keep up with the power demands under a heavy load. The voodoo 5 and your CPU don't have anyway to thermally throttle. I'd check your power supply rail voltages under load especially the 5 volt rail. The CPU doesn't have thermal throttling but the …

Re: Voodoo 5 Throttling

I went in and reapplied thermal paste to the cpu and it seems like it cooled it by 5c. I still have to run it without the case on it or it overheats and does all kinds of weird things. I think this is a case of the CPU thermal throttling or even the chipset on the Shuttle getting to hot, because …

Re: Voodoo 5 Throttling

As an additional question can anyone tell me why the Voodoo 5 outputs all its resolutions in a manner that squishes them on my monitor, no other card I own does this. 1920x1080 for example doesnt fill the screen.

Re: Voodoo 5 Throttling

It seems heat related to me, giving the machine a rest brings it back to its full performance. Voodoo5 has no temp sensor or ability to downclock in an attempt to throttle and protect the chips from overheating. Neither do the Athlons until perhaps Athlon 64(?). These concepts would largely emerge …

Re: Voodoo 5 Throttling

I'm using driver v 4.12.01.0666 , Where would I find this setting, I only see anything about vsync under OpenGL and its off. The benchmarks are in DX. It seems heat related to me, giving the machine a rest brings it back to its full performance.

Voodoo 5 Throttling

I recently got a Voodoo 5 and it appears to be in peak condition , however sometimes it seems to have half the performance it could have, I've seen it bounce back and forth between those performance levels during a benchmark. So I was wondering does it do any internal throttling or disabling half of …

Re: Worst tips from tech support

It's a good point. But I suppose that the different levels logic most of the times remains to the first level like the problem is often when not always the customer and I suppose and understand many times it might be probably but sometimes there're also customers that before calling for a tech …

Re: Worst tips from tech support

I got a Sony external CD-R USB drive I think it was 4x, and at the time was pretty good. I got nothing but buffer overrun errors trying to burn at 4x speed so I called their tech support. I shit you not the guy told me that a new CD-R is like a new car, you don't want to run it full out, it takes …
