My (first) GPU mods...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi!
I'm new here and I just wanted to share my GPU mods since I plan to stay here aswell smile.gif, used some old GPUs, and spare heatsinks. List of stuff used:
-Powercolor 9250 + Intel stock cooler for socket 115x (GPU)
-"Nvidia" Radeon X600 + PIII slot stock heatsink (GPU) + IBM's Socket 370 stock cooler
Pics were taken with my mobile (LG T500...) later I found a broken camera in one of my drawers (Kodak EasyShare C140). That's the reason why most of the photos are blurry and the latest are sharp tongue.gif

Nice mods dude very ghetto.
You should try the "red Mod" or respectivly the "green mod" as you have clearly got the modding skill to make a nice aio liquid GPU conversion.
+Rep for breaking the warranty thumb.gif
