    GB Mods ( cheap yet effective mods )


    I bought hyper tx3 which reduced my core temps a lot

    previous temps ( under load )

    core 1= 65 c
    core 2=60 c
    cpu =53 c

    new temps ( under load )

    core1= 53 c
    core2= 48 c
    cpu = 42 c

    BUT the GPU (9500gt ) is at 48c without load !!

    SO i am working on some mods to reduce my GPU temps , will upload the info soon !

    just completed and surprized by the results ....................
    temps of my 9500gt just dropped to 42c from 48 idle .

    old temps
    idle temps =48-49 c
    load temps=65 c max

    new temps
    idle temps =41-42 c
    load temps=50 c max ( Its the max temps when i OC my gpu )

    i will upload the pics soon

    Well i didn't cut it ........... I just caught fins 1 by 1 with plas and move em left right until the fin broke...............( 20min hardwork)

    SORRY for crappy quality pics

    I used intel heatsink only . The fan on it is a cheap one , used because it was easy to glue on heatsink .........

    Furmark is so and so when it comes to temp and stability testing what I have heard, and if you really want a good cooler you should get something like the link bellow Asetek Puts the Liquid Cooling In ARCTIC Accelero Hybrid Graphics Card Cooler - Asetek, Inc. Its the same as corsairs liquid cooling for cpu but this is for graphic cards ^^

    I found that my built-in GPU was also heating up (though not creating any problem) i had the inno3d 9500gt small fan. which i installed on it and cooled it too :)
