View Full Version : My RAM Sinks did nothing
05-19-2002, 02:19 AM
I'm trying to squeeze every last drop out of my Radeon AIW. I can OC it all the way to 205/198, but I get visual artifacts above 191/191. I added RAM sinks today, and reran all the usual tests. I still get artifacts after 30 mins of testings above 191/191. Oh well...
I'm going to try the sinks (+arctic silver adhesive) on some older cards and see if I can't make them OC beyond what they could w/o mem sinks.
I've seen this happen before. There comes a point where even with ram sinks it can not be overclocked more and run stably. :/

win some lose some.
BTW what kind of sink are you using and did you mount em w/ arctic adhesive?

I cut up some really nice, old Pentium Pro heatsinks and attached them with arctic silver adhesive.

um ram doesnt heat up thus ram sinks dont really do much, focus on the core.

ram sinks helped my ti200 get to 530mhz it currently runs stable at.
it used to get pretty hot.
