  1. What is the card vendor? Was it factory overclocked? Because those are default speeds.
  2. My 7900gs was stock at 450/660. I got rid of the stock cooler and replaced it with a Cooler Master Vivo and dropped my temps from 90 load to 48 load 40 idle.. I noticed artifacts on mine after nearing the 1.5-2 year mark. I had mine overclocked to 560/800 half the time tho.I've never smelled anything burning from mine. Mine was also E-VGA. Hope this helps
  3. Sounds like you were using a factory overclocked card. Since they gave you a nice new fan, just up the core and memory clock with Rivatuner. I suggest 560/750 as a safe place for the card to be, especially if you are new at overclocking.

    If anything, you just got upgraded. Rejoice :) !
  4. Thanks to all for your great reply
    The vendor is BigTek. Buy form Bigtek because its service center is near
    I just want the default speed
    I thought that memory speed is DDR speed which is 1320MHz
    Where can i see this speed i tried Everest also
  5. I don't know what program will show you the actually speed, but 660 x 2 = 1320 because you have GDDR3 memory. Check online if other users have your card. My card's default clocks were listed in my previous post. Good luck
  6. gpu z....duh
  7. GPU-Z shows 660...not the actual spead of 660*2, I think you may have understood me, read it again.
