when will we be able to reduce the shader clock? I don't like how the ACS3 defeats the purpose of slightly better cooling by overclocking so much.

You can reduce the shader clock via BIOS.

Thanks. Do I have to flash the BIOS, or can I change it w/o flashing the BIOS and if so how do I access the BIOS?

I highly appreciate it. I started a Shinobi 3 thread. But it's probably retarded to most people.

You paid extra for a faster card, why slow it down? If it's not working at the advertised clocks you should get it replaced; if you think it will die because of how fast/hot it runs, well, that is what the lifetime warranty is all about.

Because he's a dingbat.

In Bizarro world right is wrong and fast is slow so clocking his EVGA ACS3 card to 100MHZ is the RIGHT thing to do! :retard:

I just want it to run cooler, I don't like the idea of 65-70s C temps of a component in my pc.

Is that Idle or Load?

omfg, i want to buy the best card money can buy just so i can slow it down,lol, man, you really cant make this stuff up.

Mind boggling isn't it? :headexplode:

LOL, how about just using a OCing program and slow everything down (nana2).

ahahahahahaha.

Best buy a TNT2 then.

I really don't give a good god damn about unnecessary speed when I can make it run cooler. Dual 8800GTXs are more than fast enough for me, even underclocked (or more correctly, my acs3s just down to normal clocks). I realise that they shouldn't break, but I just want them to run cool as ****.

Even if you drop them to stock GTX speeds its not going to make more than a 3-5 degree difference.

Thanks Dr. Nick.

a 3-5 degree difference helps, I rather have that than have the higher clocks. I also need to crank the fan speeds up to 95%

It's understandable that not all cases run as cool but 70c is nothing for these cards and it wont kill them any time soon. If you think they are heating up the case too much you should try installing a big 120mm side fan to blow over the cards. It'll drop temps a lot more than downclocking and it wont add any noticeable noise while maintaining the enhanced performance these cards offer;)

thanks, dr nick. the case does have 2 panaflo ultra speed 120mmx38, one for the exhaust and one blowing on the acs3s. but i'm going to be able to make it cooler soon. also the 47 C is idle.

The Real question is why you feel your temps need to be cooler inside the case? Are you trying to extend the life of some other components?

So why didn't you just buy a regular 8800GTX instead? My 8800GTS KO ACS³ @ 600/900 idles at 53' C.

This really is stupid. My head hurts reading the fact he wants to slow down and overclocked version of a card, because it runs at 70C.

LOL.

I can not tell any difference in temperture,When my card was running the default of 513/1188/1600 it was running 46c at idel and when I flashed to 621/1458/1800 ,it is still running at around 46c.

It's an oc'd version with better cooling, (a little bit.) not just an oc'd version. 70C is not my idle temp.
