XFX Gefore 6600GT Power problems!


Forgive me if someone has mentioned this before, but I have been searching this forum and I can't find a thread like it. So again if i am repeating something i am sorry!

Ok so what might i be repeating I hear you cry. Well I have a a pair of 6600GT cards in my system. After about 6 months of owning them on gave up. XFX replaced it which was fine. When the card arrived i plugged it in, but the system didn't work. After about an hour i tracked it down it was the BIOS on the old card. I didn't realise that for SLi to work both cards must have the same BIOS version. Anyway I flashed the BIOS on the old card, system worked everything was cool.

The about 3 months after replacing the card, I kept on getting error messages telling me that the cards performance had to be reduced because of power problems. Any game I play now this message interrupts the game and that cards performance is reduced.

Any one got any ideas?

My system is as follows.

AMD 64 3500+ Winchester
ASUS A8N-SLi Deluxe
1GB Kingston DDR
2 XFX GForce 6600GT
Tagan TU-480 PSU

When I built the system back in Feb last year, the Tagan PSU came highly recommended, at the time there were only 6 different types PSUs sold in the UK that would power an SLi system. I don't have anything unusual in my system the eats power, the only thing I do have that you might not find in a lot of PCs is TC Powercore. Its just a DSP card i use with some music software. The Powercore is only in use when I use an instrument in my sequencer. Its on the rest of the time but it isn't processing anything. The only thing that might make sense it that the BIOS I downloaded and flashed to my card had been modified.

If anyone has an clues that would be great I don't fancy replacing this PSU, its one of the quietest I have ever come across.

Many thanks!

You should actually start a new thread, this thread is for the members to submit their experiences with a geforce card as you can see in the other posts, they are submitting driver, cooling, stock clocks, overclocked clock and others.

Anyway, you shouldn't have had to flash the bios of the card, the newest driver from nVidia supports different bioses to be used when the cards are of the same series such as 6600gt with another 6600gt.

card name: Nvidia GeForce 5900XT (FX5900XT-VTD128)
manufacturer: MSI
video ram: 128MB
bus type: AGP 8X
card cooling: ThermalTake Giant III (slightly modified for a perfect fit, heatpipes' T.I.M. is Arctic Silver 5.
voltage: [stock]
stock core/memory clock speeds: 390/700 (Nvidia reference 5900XT) 400/700 (MSI is 10mhz higher core)
oc'd core/memory clock speeds: 504/867 (MAX)
488/855 (USUAL-For lifespan)

The 5900 Ultra is quite a bit more expensive than the 5900XT, and the stock speeds on a 5900 Ultra is 450/850, and for someone looking for a budget gfx card, I would recommend getting this card, and a $30 TT Giant 3 cooler, which is loud, but works great, I dont know if my card can beat a 5900 Ultra at the speeds that I am running at, but I know it should be close, as I have exceeded the 5900U's stock speed. Also, this is a MAXIMUM overclock, meaning that just 1 MHz more on either core or memory makes my games full of artifacts, and some wont even work. I dont know if theres anymore mods I can do to make this card faster, as I just ordered a new system monday, (A64 w/ 7800GTX wooohoooo, gotta love income tax time!) and am selling this one, so it dont matter. Just my opinion, hope it helps someone.
Also, back to those who want a budget gfx card that can overclock well, on Far Cry, the disadvantage to having an nvidia based card (5xxx series) is that pixel shader 1.0 is used instead of 2.0.. and the card can perform this game at high detail 1280X1024X32 w/ NoAA NoAF - this is overclocked, at stock speeds, the card simply cant stabilize this resolution and 1024X768 is about it.
Doom III also whoops this card's butt at stock speed, but overclocked I can run 1024X768 @ high details which look great on this game, or 1280X1024 @ medium, with just a little slower performance... I only have a 19" monitor, and I rarely use AA - I try to play all my games at 1280X1024 - which is high enough that I dont need AF, I do however try to use max AF when I can, and this card can do it in some older titles, like Call of Duty, etc. I wanna start playing in 1600X1200, hence the 7800GTX on its way

It should be around $100 now, isnt it? I only paid $140 for it back in late '04. If not, then yes the 66GT is way better, but the very first post on the thread said that they wanted us to post what our current video cards can do, as a reference, which is what I did, and getting 100+ MHz increase on the core and 150+ on the memory is an impressive overclock, so yeah, if someone sees one of these cards on eBay or something for cheap, get it.

Woop, deleted my post. Yeah, I'm just ****y because I can't get my opty up to snuff and my new video card won't do what it's supposed to do.
