All this talk about caps........


While digging around in my utility room I found this. Talk about "monster cap".

Pulled a bunch of 6.3v caps off an old motherbaord. I want a bunch of 2.5v caps

Thats easy..just break more GPU's = you can haz extra

This is how poorly the reference design 9600GT PCB is---->It doesn't have any 6.3v or 2.5v cap on it. Only four 16v caps on the 12v imput. Yea, the ref cards running in my sig only have 2 x 6.3v caps and I'm hitting 900-933Mhz benching /w .05v vdroop. The Zotac card on my shelf has 3 x 16v and 4x 2.5v caps /w .01v vdroop. The little card's got some promise in her. So far, I've added 5 x 16v caps. Going to wait until I get some 2.5v before I finish. Its going to be littered before I'm done. It's more of an excuse to use the iron, but it'll be fun. lol, it's might take a couple boots before the caps get charged enough to let the card run.


had to remove some brush-on tape before I could mod. I saw some spray-on electrical tape at wal-mart the other day. Gonna go back and pick up some of that.

Wish I could find a water block to fit a GPU with a 1.75" hole spacing.

lol is that a capacitor or an energy drink?

simple solution, get a gpu block like the mcw60, run large zipties between the mounting holes and crank them, you might just need extra thermal paste to compensate

what exactly is the advantage of 2.5v caps of 6.7v because I just order a bunch of 6.7 but no 2.5, perhaps I shall order some more, also do you want to get the same uf with thing so 2200 ideally?

The holes are directly under the block and the curving of the zip ties pervents enough pressure for my taste. Tried an Intel heatsink, but the sink hit my other slots and card wouldn't seat. Hour worth of modding failure.

thanks pizza so I guess it'll essentially create less noise, the 6.7s should work fine but not as ideally as the 2.7s would, I can always order a few more online, it was like 6$ shipped for 20 on ebay which isn't half bad at all. if I decide to stay with the 6.7s that wont be a problem right (judging I got that figure from XS) and the 2200uf rating should kind of compensate for the higher voltage correct?

also pizza this product might be worth a try http://cgi.ebay.com/Thermaltake-Aqua...item3ca7a436eb

ebay has tons dirt cheap also try thermaltakestore.com , it looks like it fits tons of GPU and is tiny

maybe even: http://thermaltakestore.com/clw0088.html
