i get the temps of 32C idle, and approx 45C full load, give or take about 3-5C depending on the room temperature. the only thing i've got right now for pictures is a shitty webcam
will take pictures with it sometime though.
I've got an ATI 9600xt runnin fine at 574/351. Anyone know if upping the agp voltage will get you more mhz?
Thats with copper ramsinks and stock gpu cooling!
that is a tricky question. first it depends on the method of upping the volts. if you can get a new bios that bumps the volts some, that is a lot safer than an actual physical voltmod of the card. with stock gpu cooling, i wouldn't reccomend it. the ram is really unaffected by the voltages, it's your core that can really benefit from a jump in volts. the only way to tell tbh if it's volts that you need is if you've fooled around with it enough and are experienced enough (no offense or anything) to tell if you need volts or not. there's 3 things that can be holding you back. first it's cooling, you increase the cooling you can make the card overclock more. next is voltage... once you've cooled it so that no matter how much more you decide to cool it, it's not gonna overclock anymore (perfect example being when i changed from a 60mm fan to an 80mm fan on this card... it took my temps down on idle 8C and even more under load, yet i only got 2 more mhz out of it, i plan to resolve this later, lol)... then is when you know you're voltage limited. sometimes it just requires the proper balance. updating the bios of my 5900u to a 5950u gave my card .1v's to the core, which really improved its overclock (around 450 before, around 580 after). the last thing is the absolute limit of the core. doesn't matter if you've got all the cooling in the world and all the volts in the world pumped through your core, it does have a maximum limit, if you hit it (usually quite hard to do, depending on the "headroom" of the hardware), then there's nothing you can do to go any faster but get a different core.
