ChipGuard i s an ELSA produced program that runs resident in the taskbar upon installation of the drivers note that only the shipping drivers come with the ChipGuard program, all Internet based drivers will not contain this feature.

The GA Plus is a pretty unique card in a number of ways, which unfortunately skews our overclocking results slightly.

Matrox Millenium G 5. One thing that sets the design of the ELSA card apart from some of the other manufacturer is the use of a comparatively larger heat sink. When a company decides it wants to make a video card using the GeForce chipset, NVIDIA puts out a reference design for the graphics board itself, eliminating the need for manufacturers’ tweaks. Speaking to ELSA we learned of a different monitoring option used here. This more than thoroughly covers the GeForce processor and also leaves heat sink space around the approximately 4 cm x 4 cm fan the same one used on many of the video cards we see in the lab.

Just like the GA standard TNT2 from Gigabyte, the GA Plus features a heatsink and fan on the chip itself as well as a heatsink mounted to the backside of the card.

When ChipGuard detects this, a window pops up and notifies the user of a potential fan problem. Elsa was not able to provide a card in time for publication. It accomplishes this by utilizing two methods commonly used to shrink computer size: If ChipGuard detects an error in either of these two sensors, a warning screen will pop up, notifying the user of the problem.
Nevertheless, we set out to explore the limits of overclocking with the TNT2 Pro. Log in Don’t have an account? Further, the memory on the GA Plus is only prk at 6ns or MHz, so the memory is one potential bottleneck. The only sign and use of the ChipDoctor running under normal conditions is a small green icon on the taskbar.
In fact, the increased open space created by using an NLX form factor card actually provides an advantage over normal AGP cards because the free space, in theory, results in increased case air flow and also a nice place to run cables, erazro necessary. While the safety of the ChipDoctor software is pretty cool, the usability of the utility leaves something to be desired.
Drivers, Cards, and Overclocking – NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 Pro
errazor The choice to use a larger heat sink will find no complaints from us, as cooler is always eerazor. When placed in a NLX case, this space is filled with ports rising off the motherboard, creating a stacked layout. Currently, we only know of two manufacturers using the TNT2 Pro chip on their cards. As always, overclocking results will vary from card to card and a variety of other factors can influence these results greatly. ELSA chose to use 5.
The ChipDoctor utility is cool but additional utilities could make it even cooler. These threshold values are very high, thus this safety feature of the card will only be activated if the card is about ready to become toast. The card its self contains many of the components that we see on the SDR GeForces coming into the lab.

We were interested to find out how the fan monitoring works, considering that the fan only has two wires going to it.
