My Ghetto GPU Cooler :D

Been using the arctic cooling S1 jobby for a while, the same that tinytom used on that studio rig he did, but thought it needed a little extra fanpower.

used a couple of spare fan clips from my megahalems and a xigmatek fan and it turned out pretty nice i reckon

heres some pictures from my crappy phone camera







fits perfectly!

Will help keep the fets and memory cool dude thats what the AC fan upgrade is for too. The heatsink actually does a really good job of cooling the gpu with minimal airflow but summer is coming so it will all help.

We are just very aware now its not silence you are after

Cool stuff. Does the HS cover the whole card? Does it make the card a one slot or keep it at two slots?

the heatsink only makes contact with the gpu core (if that makes sense) but it comes with a ton of stick on heatfin thingies

it makes it at least double slot, i'm not 100% sure. looking at it i think you could just about squeeze it in to 2 slots, but that's without the fan ive borked on. its probably about 3/4 slots now haha

i'll take another photo seeing as it is light now...

I'm still really confused how it's even touching the GPU... Does it arch back in the back?
