I would start considering option 14
I have an ICE 71 Peltier @ 12v on an Alpha p3125 heatsink on the GPU, now running at 22C to 29C in most situations, though it will go up to 38C with FSSAA enabled.
This is total overkill I know, and I only tried it as I had the peltier and alpha sitting here. I will be water cooling it soon as I'd really like some PCI slots back ;-)
I can get the GPU to 185mhz and it will be ok for about 20mins of Q3 but eventually it flakes out (graphical errors, weird colours and the temp has gone to 48c (peak) in mbm. I just wondered how much less the Geforce 2 would suffer from this due to the .18 micron core, any educated guesses, also anyone else got a Peltier on their Geforce / Geforce 2, input welcome......
Motherboard: Abit BF6
Front Side Bus: 140Mhz
Processor: PIII Coppermine
Overclocked to: 988Mhz
Videocard: CLAP o/c'd (165/365)
GeForce Temperature: (Gaming) normally 29C (38C peak)
GeForce Temperature: (Non-Gaming) around 22C
Before cooling (standard card, no overclock)
GeForce Temperature: (Gaming) 68C, max 82C
GeForce Temperature: (Non-Gaming)around 56C
I have a tower case and measure the temp from the top of the card on the PCB
the otherside of the GPU. Before the peltier I tried various heatsink and
fan combos including a PIII 700 retail heatsink and 120mm fan on it, no
kidding. None of this really helped alot as 40C was just about as low as it
would go in non gaming use, I also have good case cooling (22C to 24C).
