It's deffinitly better then the stock cooling, as it keeps ALL the dust in.

With my mod, it's very, very easy to clean out if any gets in.

Do you still keep the stock fan running? Or is there no point. Just turn it down to 10% or something

Well for me, The GPU fan is conviently placed just above my chipset, so it cools it as well. So I jsut keep mine plugged in. But it does not provide any GPU cooling benefits.

You can completely unplug if you want. Just be careful because I ripped out a wire from mine.

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.
My 8800GT in my bro's pc does that same thing!

I wonder if I can do this with my 4890 instead of buying an aftermarket cooler.

Its not the heat that im worried about, its this stock fan that sounds like it has arthritis or something.
