Reading Radeon 9800 temperature
 
Hello, is there a sensor on the ATI Radeon 9800pro VGA card?
So i can read the temps :hello:

Gamer 2nd August 2004 11:49

if it's the R350 core : no
360 core : possible if flashed to XT.

0rbi 2nd August 2004 13:43

so there is a sensor but only when i flash it to higher level it wil be recognized?

jmke 2nd August 2004 13:54

only if your 9800Pro has a R360 core as Gamer stated

No, it's like Gamer says:

You can only know what core you have, if you remove the heatsink of your card.

The R350 core is the "normal" 9800(pro) core.
The R360 core is the 9800XT core. This core has a sensor!

Some manufacturers user R360 cores for the production of their 9800 pro. Probably because they don't have enough R350 core's or because the R360 cores they use, aren't good enough for 9800XT's. So if you have a 9800 Pro with a R360 core, you can try to flash your 9800 Pro to a 9800 XT and then tools like ATITool will be able to read the temperature. If you don't flash your card, these tools will not recognise your card as a 9800XT and only a 9800XT has a temperature sensor.

Got it? :)

yep, but i just installed a maze4-1 gpu with pelt on it, and i'm not gonna unscrew the whole damn thing again :)

jmke 2nd August 2004 14:27

I would just start overclocking then until you get artifacts

here's a tool which can do this for you automatically!

0rbi 2nd August 2004 15:11

damn, i got R350 :'(

StaRflaM 2nd August 2004 15:41

how did you know ?

because prog's will say that you have a r350 core huh, even if it's an r360 ;)

0rbi 2nd August 2004 21:19

from the ATItool

StaRflaM 2nd August 2004 21:50

like thay said, REMOVE the hs and check the core ;)

jmke 2nd August 2004 22:03

just start overclocking ! :p

i dont feel like disecting the neophrene and block again, i'll just use the wet finger methode to feel the temp ;)

as for overclocking, i'm at 450.90 core now, without artifacts for over one hour...
first i tried "find max core speed" and after an hour he was at 450.90 and kept on testing, but there are where no errors. so 450.90 will b the max?
(ATItool is kinda weird prog) :)

jort 3rd August 2004 19:19

maybe i reached 400mhz with ramsinks
maybe if you do a voltmod? i am going to try it soon

0rbi 4th August 2004 00:24

i got the ramsinks to this afternoon, @ 460 now going stable ;)

agent #2 4th August 2004 14:28

Can anyone tell me a good shop for a artic vga silencer? :(

Da_BoKa 4th August 2004 15:17

i thought loveno has them

agent #2 4th August 2004 16:58

Thx :ws:

FreeStyler 5th August 2004 02:03

Got it? :)

actually the pro's have r360 bcause they stopped producing the r350 bcause it's easier and cheaper to rpoduce 1 kind of core:)
the downgraded aren't used for pro's but for SE's

anywayz like my card (a sapphire 9800pro 128mb)
there are more and more like em hitting stores, they've got a 9800xt pcb, a r360 core, and 128mb 2.5 ns hynix mem :o :king:
mine does 480/410mhz with ramsinks and a vga-silencer and he never tops 45C
7504 3dmarkz is'nt bad for a 9800 pro don't you think? :super:
anywayz try flashing, here's a link to the guide i wrote:

After the system had heated up, at a system temperature of 37 C we measured the underside of our video card at 44 C. At stock video card and CPU speed this is hotter than we would have liked this area. It helps that our 9800 Pro's heatsink has a fan but this fan has very little draw, it really just keeps the heatsink cool. With the two 40mm fans running the GPU area dropped to 38 C, only a touch above our overall in-case temperature. This was a nice improvement over the previous condition and it would allow for overclocking the video card or maybe that 9800 Pro-to-9800 XT soft mod I have been thinking about...
Although I got 8C reduction from my own test, there are enough variables to get different result.

wrong thread?
