This is my Radeon 9200se. I bought it from a local computer store and they said me it was 9200. So, it wasnt. At first I ran 3Dmark 2001 and I got scared: Only 2600 3dmarks!!! :(
I had to do something. At first I downloaded Omega drivers and noticed that the card was clocked so low: GPU 200MHz and Memory(DDR) 166/333.
I tested it with higher speed. Anyway, The card had Passive cooling and the tiny heatsink got very HOT!!!
I gone to Biltema and bought Pentium3 FC-PGA CPU heatsink+cooler. Even It had to be modded to fit to the card: The heatsinks bottom wasn`t straight and I had to cut it. then I polished it.
I putted some thermal paste to it and putted it to the card with some Epox glue.
I made This fan system because it saves more space.
Now the clock is 298MHz and memory 200/400MHz. Fan runs with 5V/12V (user defined)
