Windows 7: REAL cheap gpu cooler (GB mods)

20 Oct 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
REAL cheap gpu cooler (GB mods)

Cooler is running cool
It might be helpfull to overclockers that don't have deep pockets . . .
I already have posted the same thing but it was under random MODs so many people might have missed it.

First you need an old intel heat sink ! (i used my e5700 heatsink as i bought hyper tx3)

1.Remove the fan first . . .
2.Cut it from the highlighted portion as shown in fig 1 (if it does'nt fit on gpu )
3.Mount any 90mm fan on it using glue as shown in fig 3 .(intel fan might not fit due to the clips on it)
4.Mounting this cooler on the card can be done either by string (See fig 4) OR by using long screws . . .

*Before going for the final mounting remember place your cooler on the card like in fig 5 and check that its is above the pins of the card .

At ambient 27c i m getting the following resuts on my 9500gt OC
core=550 to 650......shader=1375 to 1600.......memory=333 to 422

idle 37c
load 48c

I think above results are way to good for such a little hardwork . . .
