Not true, the fans are mounted on a plastic frame screwed on to the heatsink.

But yes, any kind of extra fans would help them.

Remove the red metal strip that by unscrewing the two small screws holding it. This will expose two extra screws on top that hold the shroud to the black metal part. There are two more on the bottom.

Good stuff, the heatsink itself goes end to end on the card right?

What you want to do is put a box fan (or any fan) right up against the cards so you will be feeding that card that is squished fresh air. I've done it myself before and it tremendously helps. Or depending on where you live crank open all your windows and drop the ambient to 18 degrees Fahrenheit thumb.gif Just make sure you where a coat! biggrin.gif I do it all the time with my WC'd system. Its awesome seeing the cards at 26c full load!

The thing is that I'm sleep deprived and don't want to do anything else ridiculously DUMB so I think I'm better off doing it tomorrow.

Yeah, this is one long heatsink with recessed areas for the fans.

I really hope you weren't repasting because of what I said a couple days ago about doing it on my Twin Froze and getting better temps, because then I would feel really bad. frown.gif

Gotcha, so it'd be hard to oakify it with extra fans then

On a side note, I now have 27 sexcoins... Just looking at the number... We need some kind of porn revolution to bring up the value of these!

But really, I'm considering hanging on to these. It's such a strange coin, but what if it were to take off to a decent value?

Also the LTC value of these keeps rising bit by bit on Cryptsy... I wonder how far I should push my luck

Nope not your fault at all brother! So I am ordering Fujipoly Extreme thermal pads for all my 7950's (hopefully they family isn't now down one member mad.gif ) so I put the GPU block down on the card with no thermal paste and no thermal pads to measure the thickness needed for the thermal pads I'm buying. I didn't use any screws or anything just simply placed the block down onto the card and when I picked it up it had done all that damage... crazy. I wish they had an IHS or something to protect it. My fault though! Just sucks because I was all excited to go TriFire and it's going to be near impossible to get another 7950 with the craze going on. Not that I even have the money for another one.

I was thinking about buying a big fan to put on the side of my PC till I get the stuff for a classic milkcrate setup..
But yeah, I can open the window up and leave the case door open... at the risk of getting snow inside of my pc... lol

lol I hear ya. You don't have any fans lying around? Best bet would be to stack up a books and place a fan so it it positioned to provide the most airflow to the cards that are sandwiched. Even better, do all this in front of an open window!
