Default Artifacting HIS HD 4870 w/ Accelero Twin Turbo

Hey so just a back story I originally bought it on July 9th, 08 then sent it back for RMA due to a coil whine on December 12th,08

Nothing was wrong with it but I found the stock cooler loud and decided to put on the Accelero Twin Turbo and voila artifacts I've tried redoing it a couple of times but can't seem to figure it out. I would assume someone more experienced would be able to set the heat sink properly. Please keep in mind I am selling it AS IS, no warranty

I do have the original box and all accessories that came with it along with the original heat sink if wanted.

SOLD!!

My [Heatware]
I'm also on eBay as jeffdavid1514

My references are near non-existent but I've been on this forum and NCIX (kleezy) for a while so hopefully that will help

Feel free to shoot me a PM with any questions


EDIT: Just wanted to mention the only thing i'm missing is the molex adapter for the accelero

EDIT2: I forgot to mention its the 512mb version

EDIT3: I can't find the DVI to HDMI adapter but will keep looking

perhaps did you try just reinstalling the stock heatsink? Artifacting is usually just overheating unless there was some sort of physical damage

good luck

No I have not tried reinstalling the stock heatsink since i don't have any thermal tape and really don't feel like investing any money in this. The easier solution is to sell and move on to the green team

So tell me why this is a bad idea: use the same stuff that we all use to join the CPU cooler to the cpu? You know, the $5.00 a tube silver stuff, what is it called again? Anyway, cheap, easy to use. Is your price shipped?
