Why does nvidia even put the ihs? It makes no sense to me, seems like they would get better heat transfer if the heatpipes sat directly on the chip.

A lot of my friends and family doesn't have an interest in fighting games. Like, they will play it once in awhile, but they won't buy or rent it. The only person I know that will play with me is my brother, and he can beat me pretty easily as he play with his friends a lot, so he had more practice.

Two weeks is long. Let me guess, when you get your replacement, that's when you will get an higher Max FPS in Furmark 1.8?

Told my cousin that my computer is awesome now, and he said I don't need that much power. Do I sense jealousy?

Whoah, I just found some batteries for these headphones I bought, they sound pretty good, but the noise cancellation is amazing. I can bang on the wall and not even hear it.

I have these. http://reviews.cnet.com/headphones/a...-31646181.html not bad for $30.



It seems that Reagan was trying to warn the people, but Obama decided to use it as an outline.

Ah. I can see it now. I thought maybe it was just light reflecting off the surface.

They just released a debut trailer for Marvel vs Capcom 3. Seems like fighting games are starting to pick up again.

A flat surface means I can put on the water block, putting on the water block means cooler temperatures, cooler temperatures means: Volt mods, higher clocks, CUDA core/SM unlocks. This is all by way of answering your question: "Yes".

No. I left it at the clocks Evga sent the card with. But, I was held back from getting the score I probably can get with a few minor tweaks.

And that is at ~700 core with no volt mod. A simple volt tweak on BIOS can get you to:

Using an IHS reduces potential damage to small transistors surrounding the GPU. Happened all the time on, even cards like the GTS250...Trying to apply thermal compound, hand slips, card slips...whatever the case may be...you knock a transistor off. Etc, etc.

Speaking of the above, I read a post the other day (not sure where, but wasn't here). A guy was going to change the compound on his 470, but a screw was stripped. He went and grabbed the pliers, but they slipped off and took out a transistor. He fixed it, but I still lol'd at such a failure. I would an hero :|

You need to get to work BIOS modding that thing. nvidia didn't laser cut the disabled SPs.
