Ati Radeon 9800 Pro --> Loose Screw?

Vantec Iceberg 4 I went to a local computer shop and bought a Vantec Iceberg 4. However I moved the display to my G5 so that I have a dual display system. Witht this monitor, you want to be using a DVI interface, from what I know, your current video card does not support DVI. If you detach the wires, it will be difficult to reassemble the old fan/heatsink and glue the wires down in a way that will look exactly like the factory did it. have a peek at this web-site

A hairdryer may also be of some use.) If it's stuck to the GPU chip, warming it with a hair drier may soften the thermal compund and make the heatsink easier Don't need to get the best one if I can't "take it with me" to the G5...but want to take advantage of the 1920X1200 resolution!!

Connect the new monitor to the card while the door is open.Power up to test the card and monitor. Remove the heatsink from the front of the card. Or do I go for the top of the line?Thanks again. I happened to have a red thermaltake orb on hand and swapped it out with the lousy stock ATI heatsink.

ZALMAN VF700-ALCU 2 About a month later, I was shopping on newegg.com for a hard drive. Also you'll need a ADC to DVE adapter. However, the situation was not irretrievable, since I could bend the fins back until the heatsink could attach. http://www.rage3d.com/board/showthread.php?t=33686355 http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif BTW, I think this problem started after I hit the top of my case sometime in February.

Join our site today to ask your question. Thus, it is a heavy, bulky VGA card with many large, electronic components attached to it. Less Irritating Fan Sound Frequency. Just keep the size difference in mind while installing the card.

You either have to grind the sides of the heatsink down with a dremel to raise the base of the heatsink, or rip off the shim to make proper contact. http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=140379 LomacFan

My PC is about 4 months old. thanks for the replies!.. I'm lost...

Sharky Forums Register Help Remember Me? Check This Out Did clean it but it's the bearings. or atleast they're tight enough so you have to use a screw driver to unscrew them. The VGA Silencer, Rev. 3 is compatible with ATI 9500 to 9700 (SE, Pro, XT, and AIW) as well as ATI 9800 (SE, Pro, and AIW), and retails for about $22

Under the shelf that supports the drive, on the computer main board, you will see an ATA connector with a plastic loop on it (figure 11).

Are you looking for the solution to your computer problem? What does the rear side look like?

Small fans are almost always louder than larger fans, for moving the same amount of air. Turns out it was my powersupply, like I said above. I did a search for VGA cooling fans and found the ZALMAN VF700-ALCU 2 Ball VGA COOLER. have a peek here Although it's possible it was ex-display and then re-shrinked.
