    I was always pretty sure that the software fan control options did nothing, this seems to back it up. So what is (supposedly) controlling the fan - the BIOS firmware or hardware?

    Even though it...

    No it's just black/red two core cable on a two-pin connector. You can flip the plug around since there is no 'lug'.

    Hmm, if that's the case what the hell is going on with that fan because it definitely doesn't like being connected in 'reverse'. I thought any general pupose electric motor would run backwards if you...

    OK I've done it and no real improvement on the temperature!

    The fan is running at full power & it is running stronger than before. What surprises me is that it is drawing air in from the external...

    When you say 'contact' are you referrring to an electrical or thermal contact?
    If I'm going to check the thermal seating I'll need to remove the cooler and probably void warranty.
    As for...

    erm, that's the entire reason for this post :rolleyes:

    I want to see what effect I get from another power feed but I'm asking if there are any pitfalls before doing so. Plus I'm away from the...

    I had it installed but it seemed a bit crap, didn't have any real effect especially regarding fan speed (if the card is faulty then it won't I suppose). The Gainward site also says it doesn't...

    I was planning to use a controller module, I've got a few spare.
  9. 7800GS fan, external connection possible?

    I posted some queries regarding my Gainward Bliss 7800GS in another thread, but I thought I'd start my own here since it's not the main topic of that thread.

    My card is faulty as far as I can...
  10. Interesting

    Thanks for that reply. It's interesting to hear that FEAR runs at 55C, this is my usual WinXP idle temp after dropping OUT of a game.:(
    I don't have FEAR but do have the demo somewhere but I'm sure...

    Corporate firewall is blocking anything identified as a game-related site. I'm at work. :o
    I don't normally get time for netsurfing anyway but I'm finishing this week so not much to do. I could...

    Poll: TFT but..

    TFT is much better, I have two; 17" LG and 19" Samsung.

    There is defintitely a difference, mainly in contrast (this was mentioned in Custom PC too). I play a lot of BF2 and if I'm flying the...

    Portal

    Anyone seen Portal (trailer) yet?

    My son showed it to me yesterday. The portal gun is the next big thing after the gravity gun of HL2.
    It takes the portal concept from Prey and puts it into a...

    Too right

    I've go to agree with FrankD, especially since I think I need a new BIOS (my fan control is non-existent). Where the hell am I supposed to get it?

    Reseller is useless so far too.

  16. Mine doesn't cool well.

    Hi all,

    I have to admit I've joined here just to get some help or device, I don't think I'm too lucky on the OC-ing front. If I'm able to give anything back I will of course. I'd like to be able...
