The ChipGuard is a nifty utility that does two things: This more than thoroughly covers the GeForce processor and also leaves heat sink space around the approximately 4 epsa x 4 cm fan the same one used on many of the video cards we see in the lab.
It accomplishes this by utilizing two methods commonly used to shrink computer size: A power draw that is above or below the normal draw indicates a problem with the fan. 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.
No amount of clicking or searching will allow the user to see just how hot the chip is running or how much power the fan is using. Sign up now Username Password Remember Me. The card its self contains many of the components that we see on the SDR GeForces coming into the lab.
In the case of the AGP slot, space is saved by placing bulky but vital motherboard components such as ports under the AGP card itself.
In fact, the increased open prk 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, if necessary. We were interested to find out how the fan monitoring works, considering that the fan only has two wires going to it.
