post #3111 of 7240

Haven't had one in a while. I didn't want to drain my loop while replacing my CPU block and I don't have QDC's or locking needle nose pliers. Zip ties to the rescue!

you're not alone, did the same thing with my loop a week ago. taped off the ends and relocated the tubes in certain locations so that it wouldn't cause a spill just because i didnt want to completely reset my loop

I have two intel i7 4770k stock heatsinks laying around, anyone have any awesome, stupid, funny, crazy, and/or ridiculous ideas for them?

Greatest coasters ever? Duct tape them to a GPU? Stock coolers suck, mostly because they're just solid aluminium with no heatpipes.

Is that an old 5450 with a spray painted white heatsink glued to the top?

*EDIT*
Is the whole thing spray painted?

my GPU temps are just fine haha, i do like the coaster idea, and these coolers are actually quite decent they have a copper core, and originally i had had my cpu clocked to 4.4GHz with the stock cooler, of course it was somewhere around 85-90 C under 100% load but it was stable!

Well, I painted them seperately.

You're close, it's a Sapphire 4650 that came with my dad's i7 860. My dad swapped his 4650 for my 9500GT for the dual DVI connectors.

The 4650 is the second dedicated GPU I ever had, and it was blazing fast biggrin.gif

It could handle Left 4 Dead 1 on *gasp* max quality with no AA at 1080p !!

I used to play NFS HP2 on integrated graphics on P4s, and used a nVidia 6200 LE to play burnout, so the 4650 was a huge upgrade for me.
