custom vrm cooling

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
does anyone think I will be able to use a Kingston hyper x ram cooler to attach to my vrm heatsinks on asus sabertooth. looked at this item https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=hyperx+cooling+fan&hl=en&biw=1920&bih=1080&prmd=imvns&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=tLU7UNDuIsqV0QX-hYHQCQ&ved=0CDoQsAQ

a few times and looks similar in length to the heatsinks on my mobo. If can get it to fit would make nice vrm cooler. cant find specific dimensions for unit so just going by eye. anyone used an altenative method? like the idea of the leds too

ive used a 40mm fan a small screw befor to hold it in place but that looks much better the only way that will work is if you test it and mod it to fit.

try with the rear fan blowing air in if you have a top exhaust that will help vrm temps a lil
cos i have the same issue with my h100 cos there is no air in that area

I have h100 top mounted with 4x120 in push pull as intake. my rear 120 is exhaust. my vrms are not overheating. they are warmer than cpu but not near limits. just like the look of these coolers from a visual point. think it would look really good if could mod to fit somehow.

Theres always a way to cool more if you want to do it but before you mod just think it out a bit. I would probably try and bend (in a vise) the legs of the cooler to try and get a flat piece to reach a mounting hole to screw it in.

Cant really give any other ideas not knowing your motherboard layout and dimensions of cooler and all that.

It may fit between the top ---- and the bottom 1 if you bend the legs a lil.

I just bolt a 110mm fan to the side of my case..blowing on the vrm/nb sinks.

yes I could do that but its more for looks than heat problems. like the aluminium stand with the blue led fans. decided just going to give it a try. thanks for the input

I'd reccoment you put a few 40/60 mm fans on the heatsinks with some tie ribs. I did it myself thumb.gif
