Ordered a Masscool Blue LED 92x25mm fan to strap on the GPU VRM of the 7950. Once it comes in, should be tommorow, I'll h60 mod my 7950.
The blue lazer led should come in tommorow as well, to put under the case. I'll wire it underneath the PSU fan grill (i'll have to pop off the molex connectors for a minute to thread it through) and just attach to molex.
Here's my current hang-up:
This is the bitfenix recon
The heatsinks way overheat and the hot glue on them melts, on the first 3, for the first 3 channels which each have 2x140mm yate loon blue led highs on them (lower speed = increased resistance, more heat, there is more resistance/heat when the fans are higher wattage, ie more wattage to resist). So I'm trying to figure that out, I might get a 80x38mm fan to put on them and undervolt it or something, I dont know. It's really a big pain. I wish I could just replace the mosfets with some solder work, but not sure if that's possible. I mean it sounds logical.
In the picture, is a different chipset heatsink on each channel's heatsink (it's like a big tetris block, especially that middle one). Just seeing which is best, before I use some no-name thermal adhesive on them. I'm currently thinking of like, putting a chipset heatsink halfway on one, then next attaches to half of both. As in, 4 chipset heatsinks between the 3 channels, if that makes sense.
A thermal diode I have wrapped around the copper one, says it's hitting 72*C, which I think is about right (if i put a finger on it, i have to pull it off for being too hot after 3 seconds).
A huge pain in the behind.Edited by Belial - 7/17/13 at 9:47pm
