Computer modding Newb

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
First off Hello and thanks. I just got a Nvidia 6800gs agp for my Dell 8300 dimension ( know computer isn't all that good but I'm poor ). Sadly My cooling fan seems unable to cope with the new card, and I think my power is being taxed a bit [305w]. I was just woundering if you guys had a power unit and fan you would recomend. Something in the low to mid price range would be nice. Thanks again to any replies

Best PSU (I think the concensus is around here) is the OCZ Powerstream, 520w, $140 or so. Fans can be bought pretty much anywhere for decent prices (for case at least) but CPU get a Thermaltake Big Typhoon ($50 and worth it!). Also, you may want to mod the gfx card up to a 6800GT, just search in the FAQ's.

Dell uses non-standered Power supply, if you plug anything eccept a DELL power supply, say bye bye to your computer....

well bugger I had a feeling about the powersuply dell uses alot of dell only setups such as ram so I have to go through them. As for the moding I had my 6800 turned up but it was idleing at 60c and my internal temp was 40c (5 deg more then dell recomends as max)

40C Case or 40C CPU?
And on that Dell, you probably would need to cut a hole in the case to put a fan in.

Man that powersupply won't have to hold you back--there is a new independent PSU that is just for the GFX card--it fits in a drive bay and runs off 110 VAC--so it takes the draw of the card off your system entirely.

I would def mod the case for more cooling, change out the CPU HS ASAP if you want to lower temps.

EDIT: Remove some Expansion slot plates from the empty PCI slots in the back of the case to help cool your GFX card...

Now that's sweet. Hope it or something like it comes out in my price range. as Far as cooling I didn't think to remove the empty pci plates but I did remove the drive bay cover in the front so it can pull in more air. 40c is gpu ambient 33c is cpu and 58-60c is gpu idle.

That is actually quite cool, except for the gfx card, which is still safe at those temps.
