A resurrected Artic Freezer 64 :)

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey there!

First of all, i don't know where i should put this thread...Didin't feel right to place it in case mods, as it is only a HS mod Can a mod move this to a better place if needed please?

What i bring you today is my little project of this night.
I have been running my OC'ed Athlon II X2 250 on the stock heatsink for quite some time, and temps, well, let's say that they never were the best
It is folding 24/7 at 65-66 ºC and i was not a happy man.
Today during work i found out that i didn't throw my old Artic Freezer 64 into the garbage, after the fan's sudden death, so i start wondering how could i use it so it would perform.
I kind of like those fancy HS with 2 big fans, they look cool, and better than this, they are efficient (well, some of them are ).
Are you having the same crazy idea i had?

Yeah, i got rid of the dead fan and started to work on a way of putting 2 fans on it.
I had 2 old 80mm fans laying around the shop and put them side by side with the HS.
The fans wouldn't be totally attached and secure with screws, so i grabbed a few plastic straps (i don't know if that's its name) and got them around the HS and the screw holes of the fans.
Temps came down from 65-66 ºC to 50 ºC, what i believe to be a good improvement

Fell free to comment please.

I forgot to take some pictures before i mount the whole thing, so i just got one single photo of it. The biggest downside of this little mod is that i have to disassemble everything by cutting the plastic straps just to take it out, and i have to place the HS on the board and later strap both fans to it

Recipe:
1 Artic Freezer 64


2 80mm fans of any brand


A few plastic straps


Some patience

The final result:

You might look into a way to transference your stock heatsinks mounting hardware over to this cooler so you don't have to hold it down to the CPU with zip ties. You should see a even larger drop in temps if you can figure how to do that.

The heatsink is attached to the CPU with the AM2/AM2+ mounting systems. Zip ties are just attaching the fans to the HS
