I'll tell him to hang himself with the sleeved Noctua fan cables.
He knows how well my PC is holding up but he still thinks I spent too much money on it. What he doesn't know is that it will run circles around his HP with a 1055T and a generic motherboard with no MOSFET cooling and 9GB generic RAM in dual channel + 1 config.
For the grand he paid he could have gotten something plenty times faster/better.
Hell my original build was only around 1200$ and still would rape his GTX 460 and stock 1055T.
Would finding a way to mount say a H50 somewhere to blow the hot air out of the case help the GPU enough to lower temps by say 10C?
Wow, he actually spent a grand on an HP?! I didn't think he spent that much considering how cheap the boutique computers sell for nowadays.
Yeah, I would be pissed too if it didn't work like I wanted it to, lol.
Anyways, seeing how small the case is, it might be a challenge to be able to mount an H50 without further modding to the case itself. I'm sure overall it will help with temps, especially if it's just a regular stock AMD cooler on that CPU. However, the issue with the whole computer shutting down when the GPU reaches a certain temp, while I think it may be the GPU itself, I think the more likely culprit would be the motherboard components overheating. Any kind of exhaust you can provide for that case should help.
