hi! my question is this!on the hd 7840 board there are 2 power connectors and 1 for fan power!do i have to power both connectors or just one,and is the second connector for bringing juice to an second card in crossfire mode?
the (online)manual of ati sucks
by the way! no technical explaination what so ever!
i,m not connecting the card befor any solid info,otherwise i,m afraid it goes talibang on my mummyboard!lol!
yes! i was just looking for an suitable adapter to create an second cord for the card.
and than i hope my power supply can handle it?
otherwise....crash and burn! acourding to the manual i'm 50 watt's short
i tryed it this afternoon and its real tight with the space,but with the pushed to the back of the power supplyer it does fit!with cooling how ever,there are 3 fan's on the back that blow inside and one on the side!ife thought of getting mee an cooler with a large fan on top of power supplyer with 600watt but than i need to shorten the cradle by half a centimeter,so i was thinking more on fancontroller and set them to maximum
Hmm.. your case is limiting you alot here.
Of course if you moved your system from your shuttle case into a Cheap case that has more room.
But I still think heat will be a huge problem, and with all the fans maxed noise will become a problem.
Also your CPU could bottleneck the graphics card.
But with a new Case and A better powerupply your system could be alot more feasible.
Also, you have to remeber that all the heat from the graphics will be very close to your cpu and other essential Motherboard components.
wel the card is an hd card,but i think that the card it self will never work on maximum proccesing,becourse i dont have an bluray installed and the resolution will be clocked down(no use for my tv)so i hope it will give me a few degrees of advantage?
i want to play games with it mostly!i think!
ive just read an article on this site!about the back fan's,and that they suck the air out of the shuttle,maybey turning them around would help?so lotd of cool air get's in???
