Overheating GPU in Scaleo 600-p

Postby » Tue Jun 24, 2003 5:37

Hello.<BR>I have a Scaleo 600-p with ATI Radeon 9800, 3Ghz CPU and 1 gig RAM.<P>When I run d3d or openGL applications the graphics locks up after a random amount of time (counted in seconds).<BR>I've tried a lot, like reducing aperture size, changing CPU threading, updated drivers and so on.<BR>One of the things that solved my problem is if I open the chassi and manually cool the GPU by blowing air on it. As you realize, this is not a viable option, makes counter-strike real hard.. [img]/talk2/ubb-files/wink.gif[/img]<BR>I dont like having the chassi open either.<P>I can also get it to work if I use the <A HREF="http://www28.brinkster.com/chrisww1942/download.htm" TARGET=_blank>RadClocker</A> and turn down the clockrates a 100Mhz or so.<BR>I dont like this option either, since I loose about 3000 points in 3dMark 2001SE.<P>Now; Is there any other way to get around theese problems (short of buying extra fans)?<P>/RexM

I guess you should contact FSC Customer Service for that problem.

No, I did not overclock.. I rather "underclocked" it, lowering the clockspeed to 222 Mhz (both for memory and GPU), and the room temperature is (and was) well within "working condition limits" as specified by fujitsu-siemens.<P>Ah well, I suppose there is no faulty setting then. Ill contact support, and see if I can get it fixed by sending it away..<P>Thank you for the attention.<BR>/RexM

The system crashed within 2 hours. Decreasing FSB showed that the time until crash decreased too. System was fully stable without overclocking. Roomtemperatur was about 38°C. Fujitsu specifies 35°C
