Hardware: Overclocking Your ATI Radeon 9700 Pro To 400 MHz
Posted by Newsfactory on Wednesday, November 13 @ 22:50:55 CET
Digit-life.com have posted info about a possible ATI secret that could help you overclock your ATI Radeon 9700 Pro.

According to Andrew Vorobyev, our video editor, new ATI Radeon 9700 Pro cards have an interesting feature: those who tried to overclock them might have noticed a gap between GPU and heatsink? The match lies on the GPU with heatsink removed. Notice the about 1mm gap between chip walls and the crystal! ATI's thermogasket doesn't add to the overclocking potential. Naturally, if you remove it, you will have a lot of thermal grease... better chip-cooler contact easily raised the ATI R9700 Pro clock up to 400 MHz.
