    my m8 has an FX 5600 grafx card made by asus, does anyone know if there is any extra cooling available for that card?

    cos lets face it its crap unless its overclocked, he dont wanna drill no holes or anything though, wants a simple clip-on solution so he can O\C easily.

    i managed 400mhz stable(ish) but its not enough.

    i would be grateful for any help

    Should have gotten the Ultra....those are 400/800.

    The ASUS card should already have some fancy cooling design on it though.

    the stock frequencies are 324/552

    i managed to get 400/690

    i took the fan and heatsink off and cleaned off the mess they describe as thermal grease, and put some decent stuff on, put it all back together and it runs nicely at those frequencies, a few graphical glitches but its stable.

    if anyone knows of water cooling systems for asus cards then send me links plz, much appreciated :)

    Tough card to find a cooler for, I had the same problem. Using a thermaltake crystal orb now but a zalman heatpipe rig is just arounf the bend. The orb is too loud and inefficient. You can improve it, send me an e-mail and I will tell you how.

    P.S. I have ran my Asus FX 5600 up to 400MHZ Core and 650 MHZ Memory with no sign of trouble all at a healthy 49C in a rather cool room though ( 19C ).
