interesting but if they never had them its because they were designed not to need them
are you doing something that adds heat? trying to minimise risk of heat damage?
I do find 'home brew' cooling methods interesting, partly because they are often actually quite good
I’ve overclocked a PCX2 based Matrox m3D up to 85Mhz, from 66, and it needs a heat sink to prevent graphics corruption. Currently held in place with paper clips and a rubber band.
I also have a Verite 2100 based Stealth S220 with the latest bios that clocks the chipset to 2200 speeds and it gets quite hot but doesn’t appear to have any issues.
But yah in general overclocking. But I don’t want to use anything too permanent or that might damage the chip or writing on the chip if I ever try to remove.
