Default Re: Basic FX59xxx bios changes

here is my card, http://www.bfgtech.com/5900_redux.html only difference is that the heatsink cover is chrome on my card (doesn't look chrome in that picture). Its actually a very good cooling solution (pure copper), but unfortunately it still runs hot with its original BIOS modded with increased voltage and lowered latencies. I may have said before that the 5900 bios runs hotter than the 5950 bios, but overall I am getting better performance with the 5900 BIOS. So what I am thinking of doing is modding my side panel and adding 1 or 2 fans to blow directly on the card itself. I have already added extra fans to my HDD, CPU, and chipset to help keep them cool, so a couple more should do the trick.
