Reaplied the thermal paste + some cable management :P

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,
Well I decided I had some spare time today so remembering that you guys suggested reapplying the thermal paste on my Tuniq, I did. This time I used the line method on the processor, and I didn't pick up the heatsink afterwards . Here's how that went down (literally )



I hope I did it right. Anyways I realized that the many power cables were really getting in the way, messing up the airflow, so I came up with a little solution
I hope there's nothing wrong with it that can hurt the PC, is there?



Last but not least, here's a good quality shot of what came out



Please comment and/or criticize
Yours truly,
Alex

quick question, I see your is OCed pretty high; do you have to cool the back of the card too, by any chance?

ok then, either way, I was thinking of cutting the long heatsink that comes with the accelero and making little one's for the voltage regulators, and maybe if there's enough of it for the back, i'll put some there too
