My Modded 4870 Cooler

Hi, this afternoon since I don't have my PC (mobo died) I was bored so I decided to mod my Gainward HD4870 GS cooler

Heres some pics.

I'll test the temps when I get my new mobo + some pics of it inside that case.









The fans are a Scythe 120mm Ultra Kaze 3000rpm (133CFM ) and a Zalman 92mm ~2800rpm blue LED fan.

Comments?

Thanks

That a non-standard cooler - being a 4870 GS (Gainward) ?
what temps you get with the Kaze on it?

Also - what bios do you run on your P5E? (for the Q6600 if you do)?

Yeah, heres a pic of the stock Gainward GS cooler.





Also I'll test the temps when I get my new mobo + some pics of it inside that case.

That P5E is dead (snapped pins) I sold it to a friend who broke them. Anyway I got my Q6600 @ 4.1GHz with the 702 BIOS. I didn't test any other ones, before I sold it.

DW i'v done that plenty of time too.

Yeah the temps should be even lower with this mod

The reason I don't put it in the PC i'm on now is cause I couldn't be bother un-installing the nvidia drivers, installing the ATI one, then back to nvidia again

why not just put it in and see what it idles at?
dont need drivers for that (GPU-Z should be able to read it....)

but - i agreee - bit of a waste of time just for that
