    I use a Dynatron 1U server heatsink, beats any "VGA" cooler you can buy.




    The fan pushes tons of air despite its size and the heatsink is all copper with lots of fins. Was only around $20.

    Yep seems like a good idea. How are you fixing it on?

    Arctic Silver Adhesive

    Epoxied on, it ain't coming back off. Its ok on the Nvidia cards because they have that massive heatspreader covering the core.

    But, I wouldn't do it on an ATI, it will probably try to pull the core right off the card.

    Well, a fan on the GPU doesnt affect ram that much. You might just want to purchase some copper ramsinks. And thats quite a jump from 600 to 680 for ram anyway. Like my card will only go 50 Mhz over retail memory clock speed. It really depends on your card. So I dont tnk you could get that much more out of your ram anyway. Althought that HSF that Soulburner is using would help your GPU clocks speeds a lot.:cheers:

    Well I have my PRO like 4 MHZ from XT speeds.. The only problem I am running into.. is that the core get's too hot.. Then my card crashes.. the Ati's VPU recover.. recovers it.. imagine trying to play Unreal Tournament 2003.. and it constantly crashing on you.

    408mhz core and crashing, you must have extremely poor cooling. Most of the cards will run artifact free from 440-480 core stable with decent air cooling.

    Mine didn't gain much....from 535 to 545 core.

    The ramsinks took me from 965 to 985 though (effective), or 482 to 492.

    Remember though ATI cores do NOT have an IHS and you would have to implement another method of attaching the heatsink. A popular method is drilling holes through the heatsink in each corner that match up with the pre-made holes on the card.

    I'm running it stable at 496MHz (core) I have no clue where you got 408 from.
