    GeForce 3 Coolong

    Hi everyone,

    I need your opinion and expertise on GF3 card Cooling.

    Is it true that stock HSF is allright (I am using VisionTek's GF3)
    Or there some good experience andresults with custom cooling on GF3 boards?


    Thanks

    I have the same Visiontek Geforce3, I used the stock fan for about a day. Then I changed it out for a blue orb. I got slightly better results using the blue orb. Last weekend I changed everything over to watercooling and peltiers, So now I watercool my Geforce3. I had to swap out my geforce3 due to some defects, so the one I have now has only been used for a day or so. It's still in the burn in phase. Just for kicks i bumped the core freq. up to 225 and the memory up to 500 and it ran with ease. The card barely gets hot with watercooling, so I'm sure I will get it much higher in a few days.
