One of the most widespread Banshee cards in germany. It is almost absolutely identical to the CT6750 variant with the black heatsink. A notable difference (aside from the cooler) is the backside of the PCB. This card has no visible PCB imprint showing the date (seems to be under the label), whereas the card with the black heatsink has it on the top left corner.

I’ve recently got one that shows white vertical lines in its output (from boot to win-desktop w/o drivers installed). The card looks totally fine otherwise. Any idea how to fix it (other than baking it in the oven ;-D)?
Hi! _please_ do not put the card into an oven. This is utter nonsense and damages more than it helps. For professional help, I can recommend to open a topic at the voodooalert.de board in the “Werkstatt” section: https://www.voodooalert.de/board/forum/index.php?board/55-werkstatt/ (english language is totally fine, although it is a german board). You can also contact the user “Backfire” there; he already repaired hundreds of different 3dfx cards, even Voodoo 5 6000’s (mine included). He can give some advise how to find or fix the error (if you want to do it yourself) or quite possibly fix it for you.
Thanks for the advice. I remember I once had an account there, but when I only had a Voodoo 3 3000 and no special projects with it to talk about or get help, I didn’t consider myself “cool” enough to stay there. Now with a few years passed and a humble collection of cards ranging from V1 to V5 it might be interesting for me to join again 🙂
Btw. I’ve tried a softer version of the oven trick (130 degree for thirty minutes after wrapping the card in aluminium foil) with an otherwise completely dead card (another Creative go figure…) and it runs happily even under heavy load without giving any glitches or stutters whatsoever…
