Windows 7: Possible GPU or MoBo problem?


05 Dec 2012   #51

Windows 7 x86 Ultimate
 
 

To be honest, i lived in Canada for 7.5 years (from my 1 to 9 year). Since then i went to a private school were i finished with intermediate level. In my elementary school, we didn't learn so much, neither do we learn now in high school. It's never a problem for me to answer questions, I'm always in a good mood, and like to help as much as I can

As i promised here are the pictures of my modified GPU. I replaced the stock one with a heatsink from a dead MSI ATI Radeon RX1650XT - fits perfectly.

That looks like a good mod! Is the GPU heatsink an add on one?

In my 2 main PC's I have silent Gigabyte cards, one a 9800T and the other a Radeon 6770. No fan noise just a card the size of a bus.

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GV-R677SL-1GD Radeon HD 6770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GV-N98TSL-1GI GeForce 9800 GT 1GB Silent Cell 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card



I have replaced the paste on the 9800 as after a couple of years the temps started to rise. That fixed it.

I also prefer "fan-less" cards, but the pc must have good airflow, in order to keep it cool
