New Dual core HSF Use??

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Well I don't know why I started to look at this...Well actually my mind is always trying to figure something.....So anyways I happened to notice that the stock dual core HSf that comes from AMD fits a GPU perfect...If you look at the picture where the arrows are those four spots line up exactly on the four holes of a nvidia card...So I'm thinking of tapping some holes and screwing the hsf to the card...Think it would work??? Seems like that would make an awesome cooler....I wire tied it on to see and even without cleaning and reapplying AS5 I got 6c drop and that wasn't even real tight....Any thoughts??

If it seems like it honestly would, then go for it. me personally i wouldnt risk crushing my GPU, and why not just buy a zalman and save the risk & headache?

you should put some plexiglass on the back of the card for the mounting , if u dont do that the card will bend as u tighten the screwes

Yea those things are damn heavy (all copper base) so a backing plate would be a dandy idea. Scrap wood/plexi/aluminum would make a passable backing plate as long as you could get some decent holes into it and make sure it clears any solder points/etc on the back of the card.

Yeh I got a back plate off of another older card...And the copper heatsink off of one of my MSI'S Weighed more than the stock amd fan...minus the better flow and more surface area to cool with...I'm gonna tap it today or tomorrow and see...the reason why not buy one the purpose is to find a decent use for what is actually a nice stock AMD hsf

does your card has a hole on the side? like my 6600 has a hole in the corner of it,that you can loop something trough it and tie it to your PSU or something else in your case,most cards have those holes to prevent them from phisically braking when you mount a heavy hsf on them
