OMG pp mguire! I have been posting questions about this card for a long time, and you have solidly answered my questions. I tried to rep you but i can't till I "spread some more rep around". anyways, i got 1698 furmark score, and just like you said, it picked up my OC, 250 stayed right where I had it OC'd to, and everything is puuurfect. thanks bro... and I did DL Kombustor to get that score. I like the program, worked great... I did notice that I was running the card far hotter than I've ever seen, 94C?? that's ridiculously hot imo, any thoughts on that? btw that was with OC at 700mHz, I backed it down when it went from 93 to 94

You have 2 cores under one heatsink you're trying to OC and run a stress test program on. I suggest running the fan at 100% to reduce risk damaging the card.

BTW if you collect stuff keep that card. It's kind of a one of a kind gem.

I have it constantly running 100%, I've never really let it go to auto. the stress test only stressed one core (the 275). and really? didn't know I was buying a "gem"... the plastic heatshroud is falling apart on it, but I will keep in mind what you are talking about.

I suggest taking the heatsinks off and doing a clean and repaste then. Sounds like it needs it badly.

Yea some cards that are oddballs or rare turn out to be gems like yours, the Mars/Ares cards, or just other stuff like the Voodoo 5 6000. Stuff that is outside the norm becomes collectable to guys like me later on down the road.

I told you the same thing.... If you want the 250 to kick in, you're going to need to run 3dmark/vantage to run the physix test.

BTW, Nvidia I guess frowns on furmark as it over heats and stress the cards. The newer cards auto throttle tremendously running it maxed out.

That's because both Furmark and Kombustor max the TDP% unnaturally unlike benches and games.
