geforce 2 problems

hey hey ladies,

K my 3d blaster ultra Annihilator2. geforce 2 based.

and im having heat problems, major ones. (i assume)

ive had to underclock just to keep it stable.

The standard stuff happens when its at stock, the dots at first, the discoloration, and then the eventual freezing.

its got some quality cooling, replaced the ram sinks it came with and it has a 60x50 gpu heatsink its umm i dont know 50mm tall and has a 60x60 32cfm fan.
artic silver 3.

all on good, nothings lose.

the only thing i can see that might be the problem is that it has this little ring of metal that might be lifting my heatsink on the gpu off to high.

if you guys think thats the case. Lapping is order???

And if lapping is the case, how do you suppose i go about it to insure the safest lap, you know without ****ing anything up.

there arent any good pics of the gpu, all are over heads and you can barely see it. In the pics it just looks like a little distortion

Yo bro, been a long time since I've seen you post

I think I remember the metal piece you speak of, and like Spyder says, be careful to avoid the center portion of the GPU as much as possible... you will have to be certain that's the issue first before risking it, lapping the GPU is very risky as there's not alot of material to lap before you're grind at the actual core...

yah, been doing other things. Havent been posting much at all.

I know to avoid the core and all.

And i cant find anything else that could be it,

like i said it has some good cooling, ummm the ac3 hasnt leaked, everythings on snug, it is the gcard for sure too (been runing the system on a crappier back up card for the time being and its been up 22 hours now without a problem), ive tried different drivers.

So really after this i have no idea what it could be.

Thats why ive already got money transfering over to my paypal, if this doesnt work im just going to go ahead and buy a new gcard.

ah well its the south so my sys temps can get a little high at times but i dont think thats the problem.

umm at worst they hit 34c they stay more around 32/31.

Since ive had the porblem ive had it off and on so i dont think it matters

If your thinking dust, thats not it. Ive dusted it off a few times and that doesnt work.
