How I dropped my GTX 260 load temps by 25 Degrees. - UPDATE - Page 34

post #331 of 425
I jsut found a good picture to ilustrate what I was saying about the dust isue on 4850's:



In mine the dust was way more concentrated that in the one on the picture above. There was just nowhere for the air to go.

Hey,

Sorry for the late response. There's 2 heatpipes coming from the heatsink for my card. I basically zip tied it onto those 2 heatpipes. The fan will be too big so make sure the excess of it is on the top not the bottom.

Play with it for a while and be creative. It'll work but it's not the easiest process in the world.

We demand pics! lol jk. But if you get time, that'd be cool to see. Interesting that it should cool the backside of the card too (because it overhangs)

Lol, no problem. I have a crappy digital camera from like 2002 so excuse the crappy 2nd & 3rd photos







I would take a pic of it inside my case but my cable management sucks right now and that would be a disgrace to CM Sniper owners everywhere

Thanks again Allen for the reply and pics. Going to give it a try tonight maybe with a spare 120 fan I got lying around then probably buy a decent one to replace later.

No problem. It probably won't make a difference unless you plan to do some good overclocking like I did with mine. I originally put a crappy stock fan from my old case and saw a 6 degree difference between it and the R4. Still way lower temps than the stock fan either way.

I broke the stock fan wire while I was doing mine so hopefully I won't need to RMA it. lol

Ooohhh! That's sick! I might try throwing a 120 on it. Should be a little quieter.

I took my card out yesterday and there was a little but nothing major. Most dust gets stuck to the fan not the heatsink. Just clean it once in while.
