dont exactly own a 9800pro, but i know that traditional overclocks have led up to xt speeds and beyond. also, lots of people said that their pros got hot, so they got an aftermarket gpu cooler, like the ones from arctic cooling, zalman, and thermaltake.

usually, the manufacturer lists the cards that are compatible with the coolers.

Ex: Arctic Cooling's Lineup

ok, final results are core- 414mhz ram-361.13mhz

keep in mind this is a all stock cooling ATI 9800 Pro 128 mb card, im 99% sure that ill get a zalman or some other aftermarket GPU cooler and that should allow me to get even more in touch with my cards twisted side :twisted:

its nice considering you upped the clocks to xt speeds. (not EXACTLY xt speeds, but same thing...) from your point, i would only go aftermarket for the additional cooling, but thats just me.

yes, it should. otherwise that new hsf would be useless. also make sure the fans are pushing air in the same direction.

yeah, i had a bad expieriance with wrong fans one time. i had just finished installing new case fans for my dads computer so that it would run quieter, and then he starts complaining to me about his fancy new comp randomly shutting down. of course i somehow faced the fans the wrong way :oops: even after i checked the arrows the first time!!! goes to show that double and triple checking in the comp and oc'in world can mean life or death....or hundreds or thousands of dollars...

those are some nice numbers there. anyways on my pci fan it doesnt have arrows on it like other fans, but it does say its dual, so i dont know which way it blows. also if i find out would it be better to blow air on to the card or take the exhaust for the fan on the card?
this is the fan in question http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDe ... 112&depa=0
any help with this would be greatly appreciated
