Talking Flashed my 6800U to UE

This afternoon, I flashed my ultra to ultra extreme. I had to download NBIT to mod the BIOS to 1.5v to get it stable at 450/1200. The problem now is that the card runs around 65-70C during benchmarking/gaming. This causes instability. I can't even run it at stock ultra speeds due to the heat. I have ordered eVga's copper heatsink, which I will be lapping and sticking some AS5 on. I hope that this will bring temps down enough that I can keep it at UE speeds. I may have to water cool it.

My benchmarkscores in AM3 went from 78K to 80K. I couldn't finish 3dm03/05 due to the heat. I take back all the bad stuff I said about this card. Once I get it cooled better, it will be able to hang with my XT PE. Cool.

Nice stuff man can you post some 3dmark compare URLs with both the x800 and the 6800 when you can

since we have virtually the same system id be interested to see how they compare

*edit* btw from a safety point of view these cards have been recorded running safely at temps over 100 with huge voltmods and nvidia even say it can handle that much heat without cooking.

in the drivers temps thing u see it has emergencey temperature throttleing but it doesnt kick in until 120 degrees :\ Give it some Gas >=D
