Modifying a Stock Intel P4 Heatsink for a 7900GS?? - Page 3

post #21 of 41
Nice job. It sucks that the ethernet card is screwing you up. You could probably get significantly lower temps with the appropriate fans. Even if you move the ethernet to bottom PCI slot it will not work?

Just as a reference, my cards upper limit of stability of about 685 at 1.5V (i guess very similar to yours), but I usually run it at 675. If you went to 1.55V, then you could like get somewhere close to 710MHz for a small bump in temperatures (it think my card ran about 5 degC hotter at 1.55V over 1.5v.

Look good, but yeah, you gotta move that ethernet card to get better temps I'd say.

I finally got it to fit.

I can't move the Ethernet card because it’s in the lowest PCI slot available, the other PCI slots lower down are PCI Express X 1, not standard PCI.

I was finally able to get my Fan on, I had to cut away some peaces of plastic on the fan itself with an exacto knife, took me about 1 hour to do... but then I decided I would re-route my wires and move my Hard drives further back.... turned into a big project.

I took pictures... except for the the bottom 12cm fan wires and the Intel 9cm fan wires the CPU case looks a lot cleaner.

The MAX temp I've seen so far is 58c... WOW! Talk about a difference in temp.

Here is the pic.... now you can truly enjoy!

In case your wondering, I left the 12cm fan at the bottom to cool the memory chip on the video card... its pointed directly at them.

About the 1.55 V mod... I've read that this can cause some weird problems with the card?

I figured getting the real fan on there would help a lot. Chances are that the 120mm fan is really not helping that much either. So if you want to clean it up a bit more, you could trying removing it and seeing what the temps are like. It may cool the memory... and more fans can't hurt. If the ram chips are completely exposed, it may be worth picking a $10 set of RAMsinks to put on them as well.

Either way its a nice job. You could definitely do the 1.55 volt mod now and not worry about the temps. I have had no issues with 1.55V and I ran it for about two weeks... long term I don't know.



This pic will tell you how to do a 1.55V mod if you want. It's that last little leg on the bottom combined with what you already have (all lines on the above figure make 1.55V)
