after using my V2 for a quite long time for intensive 3D (e.g. game), there will be some artifact on the screen (on the texture most likely)
does it mean that i need more ventilation for it?
(i haven't overclocked it, not a bit)
thanks a lot~~

P.S. if i wanna cool the card, just adding a fan on top of them and blow some air onto the surface will do it right? any need to add some heatsink?

No way a 3DFX collector...just a 3DFX die Hard Player~~

I had the same thing. And the problem was that my SLI cable was to long, or just bad.

You can make your own SLI cable from a floppy cable with a small modification.

Also, If you want a good fan for the Voodoo2 try the TennMax Stealth V2 Cooler. It works GREAT. http://tennmax.com/voodoo2/stealth.htm

Here is close up pic of the modification necessary to make your owe SLI cable.

Do they stil make that Tennmax cooler? Didn't Tennmax change there name?

EDIT. I new remember that I one of my voodoo2's is broken. And I get some strange not only red artifacts on the texture. Because I was playing Unreal Tournament and that game uses multi-texturing, It was hard to notice. But when I played A game (benchmark) that used only 1 TMU like 3dmark 99 (the race). It looked terrible, with my SLI cable problem there were only smal RED artifacts. Run A directx 5.0 program, if it stil displays smal RED artifacts it is probably the cable.
