View Full Version : 6800 with Silencer 5

05-27-06, 03:11 AM
I got the ASUS N6800XT 128MB AGP and I replaced the stock cooler with Arctic Silencer 5 rev 3. Problems when installing were:
1. the 2pin cable of the fan instead of 3pins which caused ASUS Smart Doctor not to control the speed of the fan
2. the 3pin female jack which did not fit with the 2pin or 4pin of the fan so I had to cut them and join them with a soldering gun
3. the power jack which was covered with the long plastic fan cover so I had to use again the soldering gun to make a new power jack on the other side
At last it worked OK, but there is still a problem: the ASUS Smart Doctor reports temp for core/mem 53c/59c idle (56c/65c load) which seems a bit high. I have installed Zalman VF-900Cu in Sapphire X1600PRO 256MB AGP in my second pc and reports temp 45c/42c idle (50c/55c load). Is that really a problem of high temp or I shoud stop worrying about??? :surrender

overclocked to 412/730 (no point overclocking the ram it doesnt make any difference) . I just used some pins from a molex to extend to sort the need for a low profile molex and ive just shoved the bare wires from a fan into the asus plug.Although this was very stupid as I could have just plugged the NV5 into the motherboard (reason i did this is coz I painted myself into a corner and its all i could do).

Oh and The fan on the nv5's are quite quiet so I would prefer to have em on full whack anyway
