System Cooling Hey, thanks for the response on the video cards- I bought the 9600GT. Can you advise me on the best performing after market heatsink/fan enabled CPU cooling setup? I'm building a system with ASUS pq5 se/r Mobo with 16g RAM DDR2, core 2 duo E8500, 1 internal 500g WD sata, 1 external (at times) Ive been looking at the Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme because ive seen it mentioned, but surely theres better products out there? it doesnt look like its got a scrap of copper in it, and I want to overclock to the highest speed possible. I have also considered a cheap(ish) water cooling sys, like Thermaltake CL-W0065 Silent Water CPU Liquid Cooling Kit. Problem is I have no idea of the performance of any of these items, and dont want to buy a pretty looking lump of ****. (I love the look of Thermaltake 4005 heat exchanger) pls advise me, or tell me how to check performance (is there a heat dissipation stat recorded for these item?)

Alright, Ive gone through this company before for my own cooling needs with my Micro System. SO i trust them.

Here is just a few idea's. Im not sure what your budget is (if you have one, i wish i had none lol)

For your Video Card

CPU

And the Rest of the case, to keep everything on Ice for smooth performance
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/2385/ex-wat-76/Swiftech_H20-APEX_ULTRA_Series_Liquid_Cooling_Kit_Universal_Mount.html?tl=g30

These are my suggestions. Take it or Dont. I would use those in a a Full ATX system in a heartbeat, i do use the Video Card Coolant piece as we speak, because, as everyone knows.... Micro systems generate a lot of heat in a super small space. Torching ones system is never what the person wants.

    This is what i have found for quality and performance along with barely any sound output from the unit. Has a 30,000 Hour lifetime, simple installation, light weight compared to the Thermaltake 4005, which is a bit on the bulky side. Total weight is 28 oz's, a bit under 1 1/2 lbs. I picked this because of its quality, but also its price. Its not overtly expensive but the quality doesnt go out the window with the low price

How do I install a 2g stick of memory into gt5408 ? What nvidia video card can I use to upgrade from the Intel graghics card for around $100. ? Thanks in advance for your responses !


Gateway GT5408/H has 4 slots for memory. Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-5300 or DDR2 PC2-6400 with a maximum of 1GB per slot. It will not support a 2GB stick.

ZOTAC GeForce 9600GT Eco 512MB cards are about that range and give you a good warranty as well.

Video card shut down


you probably need a higher watt power supply in your case. Most stock ones are only about 350 watt. you'l need like a 450 watt or better with that power hungry card.

Vista 32 bit Code 39 on different drivers and 2 9600GT cards


Hello, well on your description I understand that the card works on other systems but I dont understand how or what happens on this system that it is not working. Is there no video at all, or is the resolution faulty, or is it just 3d games having problems or running slow?

In any case sometimes driver / software issues may happen and the windows registry can get corrupted. 1 possible solution is to run system restore from (accessories system tools) and take back the system to a date where the card was known to work.

good luck!

Video card not installing


Did you make sure you uninstalled the original 9600gt driver, other than that you could try safe mode with networking and download/install the driver.

What the best 250watt video card for my acer m1640?


Dirtdog,

I'm sorry to tell you, but if you want a high end Videocard in your system, you will likely need to replace your power supply.

Any person who knows much about computer Modding/Gaming will tell you if you want a PC with a modern Videocard, you will need at least a 400W Power Supply Unit,

I like you bought an ACER desktop that had onboard video in my case it was Geforce 6100. Then I bought a BFG 9600GT. Only to find my PC freezing on boot up.

The problem went away son as I upgraded to a 465W PSU. But now my System is running awesome graphics and gets a 4.8 out of 5 on Vistas 3D card performance.

Hope this helps you
Dave

Windows vista


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask me" again and likewise the previous ratings.

To my knowledge, Vista x64 is just an x32 with 64 bit addressing. Some have reported that 64 bit on a Core 2 Duo isn't a very good idea with the extra speed gain of x64 over x86 being marginal for now. Offhand, you might be better off still with X32 at least for the time being.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
