Default Re: GeForce 6600 GT - are you satisfied?

i voted "It was fine after I tweaked it a bit."

my PNY would hard lock on me in any 3D app after about 15-20 minutes of playing until i removed the heatsinks and found that the "thermal pad" on the HSI bridge chip had actually melted to the point that it was completely surrounding the chip...it looked as if it had been candy-coated.

after i cleaned that mess up and replaced the thermal pad with some AS5 it has been working flawlessly at 550 core 1000 mem (i could go higher but the performance is good enough that i don't think i need to)
