Are Great! :drooling: :jumping: :super:

My results are as follows...

BFG GToc stock cooling... 67 idle and 98 full load on RTHDRIBL.

NV5 with AS5.. 57 idle and 79-80 full load running RTHDRIBL.

I'm sure my temps will drop 1 to 3 degrees more
when the AS5 settles some.
I'm more than happy with this setup. Best 30 bucks on
cooling I've ever spent.
It's easy to see why Galaxy put them on there 6800's factory.
Killer cooling.

Anyone thinking about getting a NV5 go for it.
It's well worth it. :D :D :D

I'll post new OC's when I get a chance.

New Stable OC is... 420 core and 1150 memory.
I think I might can get more out of the memory.
Though I really do not want to push to hard and
have a 400.00 paper weight. ;)

Ordered mine, comming hopefully monday or during next week. Just one question i wanna ask is, was it difficult to install? I know removing shouldnt have been a problem, and were the instructions clear?

I remember installing the SP97 on my XP had the most confusing instructions, but i manage to do it, was it difficult or easy?

Thanks, I am also gonna use as5, how much on memory? I am just gonna put a little dot on each memory block and use a CC to spread it on the GPU core.

Mine was a great fit. Hard to say how much AS5 I used really.
I've done it so many times over the years.
I just put a fair amount on the GPU and ram sinks.
Go to the artice silver website. They show you
how to use it.

The AS5 was a very easy install.
I never did look at the instructions myself.
It's simply stupid to me. But I've installed
a crap load over the years. "lol" :)

Ive never taken a gpu out and replaced the hsf, because before the 6800GT i had a ti4600 :).

How was the nuts in the as5 btw? Break off easily?

What about these memory pads or what eva? I can see them right now from the side on my current card. :retard:

Not to ruine the fun (sort of), but 67 idle and 98 load is far to high. On my xfx 6800gt with the standaard hsf I got 53 idle and 80 load, now with the NV5 I get 49 idle and 74 load.

Seeing as though the nv5 did lower your temps quite a bit, I think you have a very bad airflow through you case (mine is very good).

Just for your information ;)

Naw, its just those BFGs tend to get a bit warm for a few reasons:

1. Non-reference heatsink (would think they picked one better than reference)
2. Lousy paste on the GPU

Mine also ran right around the middle 90s before putting AS5 on

BTW, I tried 2 of em, same thing.

77~max load, 57 idle and i am using reference heat sink, i am getting my nv5 on either monday or tuesday.

Btw you cleaned the chip/ram using rubbing aclochol etc, ie the one u use to clean ure everday cpu chip?

Tighten those screws more, you load temps are still way too high. My card only hits 72*C @ 450! It took some good tightening to get things cool. Look inbetween the heatsink and the card. If you can see through the other side by where the core is you need to tighten it more. Just dont put too much pressure on it and break the screws. A tightening should drop your temps around 10*C

/agree, tighten those screws a little bit more you should be able to squeeze a few more degrees out of that cooler. Glad to hear you are happy with your NV5 though, I love mine. :)

I've got the NV5 on there "tight" as hell now.
After seeing the temps my factory BFG run at
in my case I do not think the NV5 is going
to do much better than what it's doing now.

My airflow through this small Koolance case
is very crappy.
It just was not designed to have killer airflow
through it.
Most use water for all there parts.
But I'm just using the CPU cooiling.

I'm sure when I upgrade cases after
the first of the year it will be better. :)

I dont see why people with the NV5 get so high temps, my idl`s about 50c and goes to 64c max, and that is at 425/1150.

I wish I knew why mine run so high. :(
Well, other than bad case design.

My Max core temp tonight is 78-79.
So it droped 1 degree so far.

I might try and tighten the NV5 one more turn
in a little bit to see if it drops anymore. ;)

It flat out works good.
The heat coming out the back of it is HOT.
Sure is 100x better than the factory BFG.

I know why my NV5 temps are so high, summer is on its way. But the air con brings it back to normal. :rolleyes:

Yep, summer is bad for people who rely on air to cool. Trust me in Australia its bloody hot, i have ordered a indoor A/C for just that reason.

During this week we had a very hot summer, my max temp was 78 in cs source(Rivatuner), 39C Outside temp, ambient was like 50+, idle was 58-65C, the good thing is i have good air flow(5 fans) so that is probably why i am getting decent temps. On a nice cold day my idle goes down to 48C on a reference hsf, cant wait for the A/C gonna be a snow inside my room rofl :D

The bfg6800gt oc heatsink isnt that bad, get serious...

Mine stock everything hit a max of 79 and idle at 54,
get better cooling in your case, it will make a world of difference

now with AS5, nv5 and running at 1.4v 433/1120 it idles at 53 and maxes at 68

If you go for the nv5, put recommended amount on gpu and put quite a bit on the memory sinks, they dont fit as tight as the gpu, the excess will just squish out anyway, it is a fairly small area

There not that bad if u have half
way good airflow through your case.

Now in my case the 3 YO Koolance PC2-C
case has very bad airflow.

The front 120mm intake is right up against
the harddrives. It kills the airflow.
The case is very small. Everything is just packed tight.

I'm going to get a new Koolance PC3-410 next. It just came out. :)

I'm so happy with Koolance.
Over 3 years now and never
a problem with my rig.

All I will need to add is a side fan to pull
more air in. ;)

does any one try the coolermaster coolviva to see how it cool according to coolermaster support it fit's all the 6800series card include the ultra and works great did anyone try it.....?

Dam on my PNY GT I get 57 idle and 70-71 max load. I ordered my NV5 on Friday afternoon with some AS5.....I am thinking now it was a waste.

Yep.... If your max is only 70-71 it is a waste.

HA HA lol

But I'm in the tropics and that isn't good for a overclocked system especially one with a Prescott and a 6800GT

Although my Reserator 1 seems to be coping surprisingly well... and to think those guys at EB were having a go at me coz my PC had its own cooling tower like a Power Plant. :rolleyes:

Detect optimal frequencies:
bfg6800gt oc

all stock: 402/1060
stock with 1.4 volts 420/1100
NV5 w/AS5 1.4 volts 427/1110

max stable is 433/1150
