Post your "ghetto rigging" shenanigans - Page 119

post #1181 of 7172
I got my X79 parts last Friday but don't have a 2011 cooler. Cue scouring the toolbox for M4 bolts. Luckily I had exactly 4, but as you can see...



The shorter bolt in the second pic is too long so has some random much larger nut as a spacer. lachen.gif

I just read all 119 pages of this awesomeness.

This thread makes me want to suspend my perfectly good rig form the ceiling with bread ties and velcro and then cut all of the essential wires and rubber cement them back together.

Kudos to all of the geniuses in here though. I got some great ideas from you guys.thumb.gif

Bit of ghetto rigging holding up my gpu. Without the wire, the sag was immense.

/Old rig. All of this has been passed onto the GF. The DCII 7970's backplate really does well at supporting it, no need for that hideous wire any more tongue.gif

Might I remind some of you motherboard boxes sometimes use metallic stickers and graphics.

GTX 460 SLI with mad custom cooling.
Ripped the old fan out of my PSU and replaced it with an inexpensive Arctic cooling fan. Only to find a plastic thingamagic that directs airflow.
Which I mounted on my GTX 460 heatsink with a rubber band and cable ties for mad cooling.

Picture of the new noiseless fan in the PSU

The cluster**** of 120mm fans which actually allows for a decent 13 % overclock on the GPUs at a very low noise level.
Notice the deadly sharp pointy bits on the fan hole.

My Zalman CNPS11x had a horrible vibrating fan which had to be replaced. But the mounting is totally custom and do not allow for DIMM 1 to be used at all.
The black fan on the right isn't really mounted by it serves a purpose.

Looks like an overkill and I think it doesn't cool that efectly because of fan placement
Anyways looks nice wink.gif

Thanks
I may seem so. But my chipset heats the top graphic card which have a rather bad heatsink (changed the thermal paste) and I run the fans a pretty low RPM
