Big Typhoon... VGA Cooler? - Page 2

post #11 of 23
I'd like to see this, but could there be any problems with the heatpipes being upside down? If you had one of those flipped cases I think it would be easier, and probably work better.

it will look just like the mounting brackets that come with the BT.... but they will span out a little further so you can screw it into the holes on your card, who knows maybe by chance the brackets that come with the BT will actually fit!

The PCI-E bus in terms of weight is going to cause problems, you're going to need to fabricate some sort of bracket using a PCI slot to alleviate the weight of the heatsink, that kind of weight pulling down on the PCI-E bus is bound to cause problems.

Maybe somehow making a brace to go across to support it.

you could just make a diagonal bracket to put on the big typhoon, that isn't the hard part. The hardest part is making it so that the weight is not a factor. I woulf make some sort of brace that fits into an unused pci slot. put some dialectric grease on it so that the metal doesn't short out your system and you're good to go.

Well here's something no one's considered, the base of my Big Typhoon is about 4 times the size of my X800XL's core, in fact the mounting screws look like they'd go off the edges of my card! LOL! I say forget it, you wont get much better performance anyways.

Hasn't anyone thought about the HEIGHT of the Big Typhoon?? It will render all of your PCI slots useless. Your video card slot is halfway down the motherboard, so the Big Typhoon would literally take up all the room between the card and the bottom of your case. This would block literally all of your other slots. That means no nic card, no sound card, nothing. That fact alone would prevent this from being useful in a gaming rig. I'd never give up my sound card for better video cooling, even if it was possible.

take the mobo out, fit the Big Typhoon to the graphics card and then use a PCI riser card to allow you to use the PCI slots. Not very practical but it would make a good experiment

Try a socket A or older gen cooler, They seem to work, But a big tyhpoon is overkill, and too heavy, and it would crack your gpu in half with twisting forces. Now, Theres a man named vipertim or viper tom or something, he's an Ex ati engineer, He does some AWESOME mods! X800's which are modded to fall right in between 7800gt's and 7800gtx's in benchmarks!
