Default Re: My coolit eliminator experience

Thanks DOC! If i were to run at stock speeds, should i be worried about such low temps (below ambient)? Also, I have a 6850 in my media center pc. I wonder if I swapped chips, how high i could overclock it? Wouldn't that chip run even cooler than the quad?

Thanks

BTW, DOC

According to your sig, we have the same monitor. Do you have any issues with banding? Mine was pretty bad. I noticed the OSD was indicating a refresh rate of 59.7 Hz. With the Nvidia drivers (169.09), I set a custom timing for 1920x1200 and forced the refresh to 60Hz. I verified this with the OSD, then fired up the Nvidia display optimizer. The banding in gradients is no longer as noticeable - still there, but not as pronounced.
