    I have a 9800XT and have been poking around the driver settings trying to figure them out. The SMARTGART tab has the option of AGP Off, 1X, 2X, 4X, 8X. 1X and 2X are grayed out and it is set to Off. Fastwrite is grayed out and set to Off. When I try to set AGP to 8X I have to reboot but when I...

    9800XT temps??

    I have a 9800XT that is H2O cooled with a maze4. I just installed the cat4 drivers. With overdrive you can monitor the temp of the gpu. I'm getting 57-59c without overclocking the card. I was just wondering if that is normal for idle gpu temps. What are others getting with the ATI temp readings?

    New Egg Stopped

    Yeah, the Lian-Li cases are pricey but they are worth every penny. I've had a PC70 for 3 years and I plan on having it for many upgardes to come. Very clean, easy to work with and sleek. The fact that you can buy replacement parts is a modders dream, mod and re-mod.

    Help Comp won't power up

    The hsf is a four pin connected to the PS. It's a 92mm Delta 38mm thick. In my other case I had no problems using the four pin. I'm guessing 350w PS should be fine. I tried disconnecting fans but that did not help.

    9800XT running very warm

    I've got an ATI 9800XT and this sucker is quite warm even when I'm not gaming. I know this card is a monster but it seems a little too warm. It has the stock hsf but it does'nt appear to be cooling things down much. I also have the power cable running straight to the PS. ATI manual states that...

    Help Comp won't power up

    Not sure if this is the right forum but here goes. I just finished putting together a computer with some spare parts I had lying around. I tried to boot but when I turn on the power it starts up for about 5 seconds then it shuts off. WTF. Here is the setup. Abit KG7 Raid AMD XP1800+ 1GB...

    HSF glued to my GF4!!! [H]elp

    Forget the freezer. Take a can of compressed air, turn it upside down and blast the hsf. It should freeze instantly and you can snap it off with pliers. I did this with a crystal orb I needed to remove from a Radeon 8500. Worked like a charm. As for cleaning the gpu I used a pencil eraser if I...

    Raptor power connection help

    Using the four pin is fine but the 9800XT MUST be hooked up in this fashion: out from vid card to hard drive to power supply. I just don't know if the Raptor would be better off on its own. The ati manual does nopt specify if it needs to be hooked up to OS drive or if it's ok to hook up to...

    Raptor power connection help

    I just picked up a wd360gd Raptor drive. This is my first SATA drive. I see two options to connect power, the legacy and the serial power connectors. Is there any difference between the two?
