[hardspell] Use 7$ to cool HD4850 down - Page 2

post #11 of 51
If I knew how to install aftermarket coolers on my GPU I would buy one for my card asap. . 7 dollars seems like a steal for 4800 owners!

Most coolers come with simple picture instructions ( which screws to remove )
Pretty easy on my x850xt

Not sure if its $7 everywhere though.

But if anybody plans to overclock them, an aftermarket cooler is the way to go right now until the vendors start putting out dual slot coolers.
Actually Lins posted a thread yesterday about resellers who have the green light and should begin receiving stock of factory overclocked card similar to what EVGA, XFX and BFG do with nVidia.

I think then we'll see a bunch of aftermarket heatsinks being installed by those resellers to help combat the extra heat.

its weird, before taking off the coolers the cards looks HUGE. They're really just long and wide but not necessarily thick as the coolers would have you believe. It was something I was fascinated with until I joined these forums . If it's as simple as screwing in a few screws then I'm all for it when I get my next card.

It's a simple process but at the same time it isn't.

Anybody can screw up anything.

Take your time and do things properly. Map out what you're going to do. There's nothing worse than doing something and then realizing, "Oh crap..."

Ouch.

Don't feel bad. I almost lost one of the little plastic pins that holds my northbridge heatsink in place. Yeah...don't forget that they are held tight with springs. Let them go and BOING!

ya haha, I was trying to line them up based on which way the logo was facing because I was so sure that was good enough. I should have just looked into the damn slot . At least it reboots itself so I waste about 30 seconds tops from waiting for it to BSOD to logging in once again.

I'm surprised no one has rigged a CPU cooler on it yet, like the the old 6xxx days where people rigged old Pent and Socket A coolers
