My "Homemade" SLI cooler

Posted · Report post

I refuse to give into the temp bug even if there is one. So I took the problem into my own hands for really cheap and dropped a nice 5c on both GPU's.

2 x Thermaltake 120mm fans.

1 x Sticky tape

1 x plastic base thing I found around the house.

GPU Temps BEFORE:

Idle

GPU-1 - 75c

GPU-2 - 69c

--------------

Load

GPU-1 - 85c

GPU-2 - 78c

GPU Temps After:

Idle

GPU-1 - 70c

GPU-2 - 66c

--------------

Load

GPU-1 - 79c

GPU-2 - 74c

--------------

Walla !!

overclocking a GT6800 for what?

playing counterstrike with 800FPS ?

but, i did that earlier , too

i mean, 1 big fan for some components

but the prob is dust if the case is open, so watercooling is the thing i´ll never miss again
