    Why do you need two modems? And why do they need heatsinks?

    If you have a mobo with A gigabyte port and a gigabyte port with a PCI slot, then you can re route your Router and have a faster connection that way. But it's around 100 dollars to even start thinking about that Router... Darn it!

    You know how a bolt has a washer at the bottom, then its the object, and then the nut on top? I believe thats what he's thinking about.

    Who remembers this? 2x80mm fan bolted onto either side of the 9550 :laugh: In addition Copper RAMsinks, and core clocked at 500 Memory at a pitiful 280...

    On a tragic note the 9550 is dead. Why? Because someone sat on the box when i was taking it to my apartment.

    Here are a few of mine from the little 939 socket Gateway...the cooling in this thiing was atrocious! HDD was very hot and all of the heat from the vid card stayed in the case. Case is way too narrow the put fans inside so i went down and bought the appropriate holesaws and went to work. One 80mm TT fan and a Sliverstone 120mm on the side...Fan controller on back sports an automotive switch holder that I moddified to house some fan controller that newegg used to sell but is unavailable now, can't rmember the name, anyway it's velcro'd to the back of the case...That controls the 80mm Vantec Tornado exhaust fan. This ugly configuration has been running effectively now for 2 years... :)

    Here's something kinda ghetto but not too crazy. 8800gt was overheating at around 80+C and would crash so I tied a fan to it.

    Works pretty well. Getting around 65C under load. This is temporary until my 8800GT Akimbo cooler gets here. Can't wait.
