183mhz to over 210mhz by adding a fan?
This is what TennMax claims that there Fan can do to improve the speed and temperature of my VooDoo 3500. The fan is 20+5s.h. I was wondering if it is worth it and if anyone has tried it and should i do it?
I know its a lot to ask but I live in a Hot Dry area and want to protect my card!
Any and all help will be greatly apperciated.
I got an RHTO cooler from www.3dfxcool.com for $11 plus around 4 maybe for shipping. They have a cooler there that they say is specifically for video cards - it apparently has more heatsink area, but it is also quite expensive. The RHTO(something like that) is under the micro fan section I believe. It just sticks onto the chip, and it doesn't block the adjacent PCI slot - it is a combination heatsink/fan. I got a TNT2 M64, normal clock speed is 125. The included heatsink was ****; popped it off there. Now I can go past 150, but I don't know if the freezing I get is because of the motherboard - there is something that the Gigabyte GA-5AX can't supply enough power to the AGP slot for some cards. I've got the TNT2 at 140 core and memory right now with very few lockups.
Im usin a Voodoo 3000 w/one of the little 3dfx coolers replacing the stock sink...(hot glued the edge instead of usin the fragtape) then I noticed using the stock brass pushpins and little spacers I could mount a Celeron cpu fan on the back of the card, I now have it running at 195 without any probs...it may be overkill...but it didnt cost me a penny... :-)
This is what you do: Go down to your local computer shop nd buy a 10 dollar Socket 7 pentium fan. Take it home and remove its heatsink. Screw the fan part onto the heatsink that is currently on your card. It will all become clear to you when you get the fan. I did this with my voodoo3 3000 and it works great!!! Also, the best part is you get a kick *** heatsink that you can stick where ever you want. IE:harddrive, chip on mobo, ect...
P.S. When I did this to my card (Voodoo3 3000) the screw holes in the fan where not big enough cause the screw that fit snugly between the video cards heatsink fins was too fat for the screw holes in the fans. To solve this problem I took a drill and used a drillbit that was the same size as the screw I needed and drilled out the fan holes to make the screw fit. If you need more info email me.
