Ati Radeon 9800 Pro --> Loose Screw?

The pencil points to where the fan's power wires were glued to my card. (Note: As shown in the photos in my G03 install guide w/my early OEM 9800 Pro - On my GF3 it had two screws and thermal paste which I had to heat up to remove. mfisher1967 View Public Profile Find More Posts by mfisher1967 mfisher1967's System Specs May 19, 2003, 09:51 PM #5 mfisher1967 Radeon R300 Join Date: Nov 2000 Posts: 129 Bump Bump Don't need to get the best one if I can't "take it with me" to the G5...but want to take advantage of the 1920X1200 resolution!! http://webstrategy360.com/ati-radeon/ati-radeon-9800-and-artifacts.html

Gripping the power connector firmly, disconnect it from the optical drive. although it was a pain to clean up off the core and such.. For installation with a PowerMacG4, see the printed documentation included with the product. The poster above who talked about the heatsink making contact with only the core is correct--you can see this simply by looking at the stock card edgewise--I noticed this when first https://forums.techguy.org/threads/ati-radeon-9800-pro-loose-screw.328373/

Thanks to Bob Miklosey. But actually while we are on the subject of shims it all depends on what Brand card you have. I purchased the fan for about $15 including shipping.

Try not to rock the connector to prevent damaging the board its attached to on the drive (figure 15). This may need a small rocking motion from left to right. You can cut the yellow wire off unless your old fan was connected to it. Lift the latch mechanism from the bottom (see figure 2).

You would need to remove the sink the rest of the way and clean GPU and heat sink with alcohol and apply some thermal paste. So I bought this Aluminum/Copper heatsink for about $30. If this latch is currently secured with any type of external lock, please remove it at this time. http://www.rage3d.com/board/showthread.php?t=33686355 One the company website, it says the plastic casing can be cut to accomodate any obstructions on the VGA card.

But please note, he does state (I believe). Although it's possible it was ex-display and then re-shrinked. Heat makes that softer and easier to break loose. With all LCD pannels, you optimally want to display their native resolution (which is likely 1900x1200 on that display)Yes, an upgrade will very likely be worth it, especially if you're running

Remove the heatsink from the front of the card. http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=140379 The Mac should be powered down and the internal power connection checked/made before starting again. ricky mason, Feb 8, 2005 #4 Elvandil Joined: Aug 1, 2003 Messages: 51,988 Are you talking about the fan attached to the card, or the case or CPU fans? my $869 I paid).

If it was your card and it's still under warranty, get a replacement pronto.

If you're cutting the wires loose and removing the old fan from the card, you can skip this step. It has a switch that lets you select High or Low speed.

i havent turned it on since ive smelled something in the case. The card should not be at an angle to its socket. It's not like fan noise or something, it just sounds like something's vibrating. The card & cable should have shipped connected.

As for the installation of the new fan for the graphics card, is it that hard to do?

Since heat may be an issue for some here, I would suggest checking cards for a loose heatsink those who want to see fit.
