    Default OC Asus 9800XT, but it appears even at stock setting temp is high...

    Hi,

    I am new to the OC concept (and to these boards for that matter ). I decided I would give OC a shot after reading the "how-to" sticky on this forum . That being said, when I loaded ATI tool and looked at the 3d-view I noticed the image had all kinds of dots on it (I assume this isn't normal, but correct me if I am wrong). See link below.

    This is at the cards default setting before I even tried to OC. Just for kicks I OC'ed it a tad and the dots got worse....

    Any comments? Supposidly this card has excellent stock cooling, but at the cards default setting the temp is over 70... and this isn't even with a game loaded.

    Any input would be appreciated. Sorry if this is a noob question, hehe.

    EDIT: Just FYI, if I lower clock speed to 405 the dots go away...

    I think you shuld remount your heatsink and reapply the thermal paste right away if you are really getting 70c temps at full idle without that 3d window open.

    Without the window open I get approx 60... goes to 70+ when I open it.. to be honest, I have no idea how to do what you just said, lol.... May have to get someone to look at it?

    is this your board: http://www.zapwizard.com/ATI/Parts/9800xt.jpg

    or is it like this: http://www.elitebastards.com/hanners/misc/9800xt.jpg

    if its the first it does look a little bit more tricky to remove the heatsink but all you really need to do is look for screws which are holding on the heatsink and remove them, disconnect the fan header, and then gently ply it off, underneath you'll see the chip like this: http://www.pureoverclock.com/thumb.p...section=review (the silver square right in the middle with nvidia written on), remove all the thermal goop and put a fresh lot on (you may need to buy some), but you only put a thin layer, its best to put a small pearl sized blop in the middle and spread it with something like a credit card. Then put the heatsink back on top and then remove, make sure the thermal paste has made good contact with the heatsink, if so screw it back together, install it again and immediately goto the control panel to monitor the temps.

    .... or get someone else to do it
