    Did you say "special" cooling?

    I can't say as the cooling mod on my 8500 is exactly original...but I like to think it's special in it's own way. :)

    If nothing else, it's definately cheap & fun. ;)

    What kind of memory is on that card? Do the pins come out the side of the memory chips or the bottom? They should have a number on them as well; 5.0 or 4.0 or 3.6 or 3.3.

    My retail ATI 8500LE 128mb (with Infineon 3.6 BGA) runs at 315/305 without any special cooling.

    Holy crap that is a high overclock, just think if that same percentage overclock could be gained on a 9700!

    Hmm, surprised there's no true "8500 ultra" version of the R200.
