How I dropped my GTX 260 load temps by 25 Degrees. - UPDATE - Page 4

post #31 of 425
Cool mod but seeing that you haver an a NFORCE mobo I bet you could drop those temps even more. You see how the NB cooler is set up it blows hot air on to the back of the card which makes for higher temps. What I did is take the only 80mm fan I had left from the FedEx violation and used that to cool my NB and the PCB of the video card and I got about a 10c drop for both.

60mm usally but I have an 80mm prop up on my video card it is a 75cfm one tought overkill FTW. But ither a spare 80mm and below fan prefably a 60mm one or the antec spot cool works well. Everyone with the NFORCE 700 series mobos say the stock fan is loud but mis is wisper quite humm anyways my NB is at 39c and my video card wile folding is at 50c for a 511 WU whitch is pretty good temp.

yeah they are pretty tiny, now I have two UV green CCFLU 80's on it. It looks awesome now with the green glow coming from my GTX260

Did this ages ago to my 260, used 3x 90mm fans

Worked a treat but was an ugly bodge job
post #37 of 425
Nice work, but 63c idle temps? Wow thats high, what fan speed was your gpu at?

When I had my GTX260 55nm it idled at 40c and loaded in the mid 60's stock fan speed with a little MX-2 to help things.
