Increase STOCK cooling on Dual-Core - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Thread Starter 
now my next step is to take 2 fans...mount them on top of the heatsink in a upside down V shape and cover the holes on each side with metal tape and get twice the airflow thru the heatsink and see how much more of a drop I can get with that...will post back tomorrow and let you know how it turns out...modding is soo much fun.....*****

Gotta make do with what you got.....weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

once again mate how did you get OCCT to run 100% or was you runing prime and OCCt at same time?

and if that was me i would say that that is a little high, but thats because i do have the odd extreme gameing sesion and some very long LAN partys, but for just every day usage then that would be fine as not many programs push Dual Core to its 100% usage, but to be honest mate the easiest thing to do would be buy a new HSF (i have only heard good stuff about the TT BT) then you will be able to get it alot colder and maybe clock it more.
What i mean is you have spent lots on a very nice CPU and you dont want it to burn out, well i wouldnt any way, but its up to you.

That's pretty slick. I wish my X2 3800 would've come with that nifty heatpipe cooler. I just got the crappy aluminum one with a 70mm fan. That had to go!

I did kinda the same thing with my dad's old intel computer (running on a willamette) mostly because of the stock fan being so noisy.

changed the 60mm stock fan with an 80 mm one, but there was not room on the heatsink to mount an 80mm fan, so I took off the mounting bracket on the heatsink (that the fan was mounted on) and tied it to the heatsink bracket with strips.

I cant see how warm the CPU is though because the ****ty OEM board doesn't have a thermal sensor on it.

but by feeling with my hand, the heatsink is a great deal cooler though.

not AMD, I know, but I hope it gives some inspiration on how to mount a bigger fan to the heatsink.

you could try with a 120mm one, but keep in mind that the "dead spot" is the same size as the stock fan, to give better effeciency.

Smitty's setup is a great example on how to eliminate the "dead spot" under the fan, this alone removes about 2-3 C

Still, x2 3800+ is a hell of a cpu. Guess we're gonna have to buy BTs!
