oh cant wait to see your lappi project..
you know what you can also do..
try see if you can buy a busted or used AIO pc..those touch screen pc system where its the screen..ect..then rebuild your lappi into that with the cooler also...
ive seen some crazy mods with those things..you can then with the added space get the pcie usb converter to add a real gpu..

First I will have to fix the GPU on it though since that broke, as for USB to PCI-e... the technology to use external GPUs was a total bust even though there have been sevearl tries to do so. Even the speed of USB 3 is to slow to run a proper GPU anyways which was the main problem with all of the projects that used the E-PCIe ports, simply that the transfer speed was to slow to get any significant gain. Either waythe laptop in question is a Clevo p150HM with an i7-2720QM (Sandy Bridge) and a AMD Radeon HD 6970M. This si by no means a beast of a computer anymore which is why I got it cheaply, but it can play quite a lot of games which is helpful when you jsut want to go to a lan with your friends without having to carry the 20-30Kg bohemoth of a desktop computer. I'll have to wait and see to be honest smile.gif

I've seenaftermarket aircoolers for £40 that come with vrm heatsinks. Would I need these with a mod like this?

That card mod was just done here by Cakewalk. Try going back a few pages to see what he did. I'm not sure about the vrm heatsinks but thats never a bad idea to keep them cool. All your power goes through them and on some cards they get real hot.

The vrm on my gtx970 strix definitely need as much cooling as possible. They get upto around low to mid 70s with a 70mm fan blowing on them with good airflow. I thought the memory vrm needed heatsinks but after physically touching them they definitely don't need heatsinks... Also, the memory doesn't really need heatsinks either. Just good air flow and it'll be good.

Now that it's cooler in the mornings and daytime I'm maxing out my gpu core temp at around 36c... But the vrm are still in the 65c range... But it's great how cool the core temp is. I'll take 36c every day...

Thanks for that info. I'll probably keep the stock blower attached and running but mod the shroud so I can have the aio in place of the stock heatsink. That way I have the blower running at low rpms keeping the components cool and the aio cooling the gpu

I don't know much about computers but I know this mod works great and I sure have a good time messing around with it. I find myself thinking of different ways to help make it better. Almost like an obsession. Hehe blinksmiley.gif

Sooo I was worried about corrosion in the water lines and the washers in the reservoir are starting to get some rust color on them. So I bought some anti rust and corrosion inhibitor. Real cheap stuff like 3 bucks from car quest. Poured it in and so far no problems. I haven't seen any temp difference, but the color changed. And I think I like it.





Those VRM heatsink you have on the back of the card. Does it actually help? I'm thinking of adding ones at the back of my card and then running a cooler master 140xl per card

I have no real good way to measure them, but by feel the pcb is much cooler and the heatsinks pretty warm. So it seems to help. I belive at least some of the heat is transfered to the heatsink then is radiated to air. I have a couple of fans in the front of my case that blows at them.

Also I used some thick pads 2mm, did not want any chance of a short.

The bottom card is sort of stock with a few alterations I did. Its running around 50 c now with room temps about 23c. And the top has the full mod two rads and a little more stuff done. Its doing the low 30s while gaming havent done heavy testing for awile now. All in all pretty nice temps.

they keep my VRMs quite cool actually, it's simply that a regular high performance thermal pad is going to be better. For fitting something on the back of your card though it should be more then adequit. thumb.gif

Yes getting stuff here in SA is almost 0 unless you use Fedex or so on and they very expensive.

So I already have 2x 140xl coolers and want to know how I can attach them to my cards using the zip tie method as the base is not exactly flat.
