cool GPU with cpu HSF? - Page 2

post #11 of 24
In addition to the last post, if you DO use a larger/heavier heatsink you could use the "tie a string from the top of the case" trick to keep the card from twisting...

you could make some kind of brace right and does it help to have a heat sink under the gpu?

is it better to just hook your fan up to your power supply or video card?

Check the voltage of the fan thats on the video card to the fan your going to plug into the video card.

And yea I guess I shouldn't mount my Big Typhoon onto my video card eh?

Just got done doing this mod myself. I'm very happy with the results! Just got done posting the results in the ati forum. If you want more details see this: http://www.overclock.net/ati/131915-...1600pro-2.html

Dropped about 15c idle, and 20 at load. I'd say that's not too shabby for a free mod. It's the HSF that came with my AMD chip. Pretty big, takes 2 pci slots, but i got 5 and only use 1 so not a problem here. And the card doesn't really sag, but i'll prop it up somehow anyways.

Edit: I didn't use the onboard power for the fan. Just plugged it into the case fan controller that i have. You could just use 4 prong to 3 prong adapter, too, i suppose and hook it directly into the psu. Most vid cards only have 2 prong inputs i believe.

If you could find a smaller, lighter, but still larger than the average VGA heatsink i think you'd be golden..mounting and the weight is the only problem really

mine actually was always meant to plug into the psu and so unless you want to do some wire snipping it is probably best just to run it off of your psu. also it doesn't really fit right so you need zip ties or duct tape. some socket p3 heatsinks also seem to look like good candidates for cooling gpus
