As you can see in my sig I have fans galore and its a bit loud so im not concerned about quiet solutions. I want to be able to oc the core to 600mhz at the least with no artifacts. So i guess my question is what heatsinks and fans do i need to install on this card so it can achieve my goal? Thanks

You will probaly need a vmod to get that high on the core. I have yet to see anyone hit 600 on the core without one. The MEM you could get to 600 easily, but the core is a different story.

Yes you will need a volt mod and better cooling. I have been up to 713 core and still have not seen any artifacts. I guess these cores lock up long before artifacts appear. :attn:

got any links to a volt mod and about heatsink cooling sudjestions?

The Excalibur card with the Rev 4 attached to it got 573mhz oc. Maybe a diffrent heatsink/fan combo would do better?
