Well I install the HSF as mentioned in my post and it really didnt make a difference..POOP!Its now idle at 45C and reaches a max of about 64-66C so its basically the same... I also installed a Artic VGA cooler rev.3 on my Radeon 9800 PRO...
Now I wanted to test a theory so I brought it to work with me where it is really cool in the building and it the was idle at 35C!!!! and a max when doing video decoding etc etc of 50C!!! pooop! Which tells me its just plain to hot in my room
What was strange that I was able to overclock and still recieve the same temps..soo I have it clocked to 3.34GHZ from 3.0GHZ and it is running the same temps as OEM (at my house)...and the VGA cooler allowed me to clock my Radeon pretty good... Now the question? If I have a high temp in my room would Liquid Cooling even make a difference? Or would I still see the same results since it is the ambient temp??
