My Prolink FX5900 128MB card MVGA-NVG35BA is too how with default
BIOS, although inside my case is 38C. YEs, I tried everything, trust
me. I even put in one those coll Vantec dual fan pci cards. I took me
a long time to try flashing the bios to a 9500 ultra or 5950 because
Prolink wouldn't provide me with any BIOS. But, by golly it work at
reducing the temps by 17C!

How can I change the speeds in BIOS???

Thanks

how=hot ?

Idle ? GPU or memory ? In 2D (Desktop) mode ? Or what ? And if in 3D
mode, precisely how and when did you measure the temp.

How hot ? Maybe the board vendor forgot to use any thermal grease ?

This should be the very last thing that you would do if you have a
temperature problem. But hey.... anything goes with a bull in
a china-shop. You are very lucky that you still have a working
(non-returnable under warranty) board.

Excellent.... did it slow down the board too in 3D mode ?
You might not notice any related performance change in
2D mode.

Huh ? So you replaced your BIOS without ever
knowing how to adjust your board clocks normally ?

Anyway, you don't change clock speeds in BIOS.
Each BIOS has fixed default settings.

Use Coolbits.reg and then the Clock Settings in the
driver menu. You set 2D and 3D separately.

I know how to enable and use coolbits. I also use the card in adual
boot system for Linux too. Linux does not have coolbits reg. I wish
to set speeds in the Bios is what I asked for help on.

I had posted a message earlier for assistance with the speeds. From
there, after many other attempt to resolve it, I flashed the BIOS.

Yes how should be hot.
