the slashes will look like weird trapezoids...with misdrawn graphics. any missing colour sopts or such are generally heat. the slashes can vary in size, but usually you'll see a flicker when it happens.

if you get checkerboarded graphics, the issue is either the bios, or you've blown the 3-d size of the card, or a ramdac.

Hey im pretty sure the artic cooling rev.3 will fit on that card, i had good results with it on my 9800pro, and its alot cheaper than the zalman. It looks cool and its really quite. I reckon the best thing about it thought is it dumps the hot air outside not in the case!

i looked at that but i think that the zalman would be better because it has the hs on the back and the heatpipes send the heat over to the other side. i have a fan sucking the air out of that area, so the heat would be drawn out from there. i just think that the zalman would suit the computer better

i have my fan blowing the other way...hmmmmmm..........never thought of splashing air against the side of the case was such a good idea..... but i have plans foe a new case, and having an outlet fan right infront fir the graphics fan might make that a possibility



EDIT: checked my manual for the zm80d-hp, and the fan blows ONTO the garphics card.

ya i figure that having the fan blowing on the hs is better because as the air passes through it it heats up from the hs heat rather sucking air in the bottom and blowing it out the fan. thats how my P4 is set up, and its still the stock hs
