well I was thinking of doing a second 120.2 (240) x flow up top but that is another day as the parts are another 160usd and that also means I have to drill holes in my beautiful Lian Li case lol, I am drilling holes now anyway but a 120.2 would be much bigger holes lol. I have a 102.2 and a 120.1 now and that really is good enough but have all that space up top that I can use lol

Dropped my OC to 900 with 1.125v and retested for stability, CPU at 4Ghz. Here is the result.

Upped my 3Dmark Vantage score by over 1000 points! (Extreme divers may have helped lol)

Also increased my 3Dmark11 by 100 points

So I just finished a custom cooler job on my Palit GTX 460 (non reference), which involved some RAM sinks, a 1850RPM gently typhoon, and 4 cable ties.

Yup, I took off the (awful - load and crap) palit fan and shroud, and cable tied the 120mm GT to the heatsink. I also re-did the thermal paste, using AS5. I put some RAM sinks on the RAM that I could - they wouldn't fit under the heatsink though, so some remain bare. The card is sitting in a BitFenix Colossus with plenty of airflow, including a Nocuta Nf-B9 that blows towards the GPU - its actually cable tied to the HDD rack

The results? Before, temperatures were in the 80s (850/1600, 2000). Now, they are in the 60s. Crysis / Crysis Warhead doesn't reach 70 degrees. Anno maxes out at ~75 after a long session. Everything else tends to be in the 60s. Fantastic results, given how quiet the GT is.

I have 2 other GTs in my case, and all (including the GPU one) are hooked up to fan controllers - the GPU one to the Colossus' controller, and the others to an NZXT Sentry 2. This custom job has removed the awful noise - when I'm not gaming, the PC is near silent. When gaming, its quiet. Much, much, much quieter than before, when the Palit fan was like a jet engine.

All in, this job cost me ~£15. So much cheaper than any aftermarket heatsink, and it works for non reference PCB cards. I'd recommend it to everyone



Just my 2 cents
