    Extreme Overclocking ATi X1950XTX

    Alright, so we have put the X1950XTX under the cold Cascade cooling. Hot? Yes, hotter than X1900XTX. Issues? Yes Software Bugs... Core hit high speed? Yes, 927MHz Core benchmark stable!

    Woah quite a few problems there. =D. Maybe Ati purposely placed some anti-nail varnish tech on their PCB to prevent cascade cooling ?

    Then again a single card score of 17k isn't too bad, esp when you are underclocking your Conroe !

    I can accept failure. Everyone fails at something. But I can't accept for not trying.

    i still dont get the anal retentiveness regardin the nail varnishhhhh
    it's like the most harmless thing thats nvr failed me broke the 100% fail-safe record
    also i jsut wonder why the core runs hotter than the x1900's... could be due to slightly diff power management, 6 FETs instead of 7, perhaps. but definitely so, i've benched on that cascade a zillion times so i know what temps it doe s each card.

    You seem so disappointed nail varnish has sort of 'disabled' the card.

    Anyway, did you cool the rams also ? Or they got cooled by the sub zero core ?

    no need to give a rats ass about the mem till a proper oc tool come out for it to clock it above 1143, and also timings tuning which the mems need

    I think the crew just had to do it for that video.

    Btw, the pot in the first pic is strategically placed !
