Lol, no the warning is just bullshit(to me ) when you see lockups and articfacts in your games thhhaaattttsss when you lower the core or mem not when some stupid program tells you to! so up the freq by 5 then test it in a game rinse and repeat and you will have a more precise outcome. Thank You
Software mod with rivatuner nvstrap 'thing' to reg 6600 (was 6600le)
unlocked the pipes 8x1,3vp core nv43 a4 (was 4x1,3vp)
was able to clock mem at 555 (was 500)and core to 400 (was 300)
changed the fan for for a 3' insted (it has lowered my overall sys temp !)
tested it with halo/doom 3 no artifacts for now...
i will try to push the core again tonight.....maybe i'll get to 500 8O
Update : 17/11/2005 Got to 455 (core was 300)
Seems like no heat at all the heat sink and the back of the card are
is still cold to the touch....
when you open rivatuner, does it say (A4,4x1,3vp) or (A4,8x1,3vp)? If the first page says (A4,4x1,3vp), then your pipelines are still locked. Unlocking with rivatuner shouldnt work because the A4 cores are hardlocked, i've tried just about everything to unlock mine. If your card unlocks, there might be hope.
btw my card is a non sli edition and came without software bundle.
MSI® NX6600LE TD256E nVIDIA® GeForce 6600 PCI-Express 256 Mo DDR 1*15 pins+1 DVI-I NON-SLI
may be it was a special edition or a slight defect version. :?:
