Sorry I was missed this thread for a little time, but now I'm here and explaining.
Two of the three CT6970 Creative Geforce 256 are correctly working, but they have the ELSA Gloria II bios, that has little higher frequencies of work. But all is working great, GPU core elevated to 135mhz and RAM 166mhz to elevate a little the bandwith.
I was trying to flash a original Creative bios, but it's too difficult today to find a Geforce 256 bios and the editor of it.
So I think this is nice as it is.
The heatsink yes, I removed all, I cleaned the chip, applied the thermal paste and found three nice heatsink with fan, connected to the header and work flawlessy.
The last one Gf256 is strange, it works, but only 16MB of Ram is saw by the system, I really don't know why. If only I could flash the original bios... I cannot find the bios chip in that old kind of videocards...
Ps: the Voodoo2 was a 12mb edition yes.. Just sold to about 100 euros.
