I just unlocked my XFX 6800 AGP 8x to 16 pipes and 6 verticies and got an Aquamark Triscore of 53,122 (no OCing). It got there from stock 51,000 score on the stock 12 pipes. Is that a decent score for my sig. setup? Also, the GPU seems to run at 120 F which I think may be a bit on the hot side. I have been thinking of getting a PCI fan instead of getting a new GPU fan and am thinking about this one: http://www.xoxide.com/3dedge.html' ">http://www.xoxide.com/3dedge.html. What do you think bout doing that instead of swapping the GPU fan? Or is there a good, easy to install, GPU fan that you would recommend (low cost too)? Thanks in advance. /biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' />

After OCing the CPU to 2.0ghz I now have an Aquamark3 triscore of 56,194! I would still like to know about your guy's thoughts on PCI slot cooling fans for GPU cooling. The XFX 6800 is runningat around 120F, which I know is acceptable, but would like to get it cooler. Is my best bet just replacing the VGA fan or would PCI fans be sufficient?

Personally I would prefere to get one of Zahlman or Artic Cooling Silent fans to keep cool and silent. I would also use some good fans to pump out heat from inside of my case.

Fan isn't enough if you want to be sure to cool down your GPU and memory fast. They need to have some larger area to cool it down (heatsink) with good thermal interface material (TIM). All this to tranfer heat fast into air. Air need to be cool inside of case.
