Congrats, you bought super shitty expensive dust filter
Removed 7950 shim
It's not much of a mod but damn it helped drop my temps 7-9 Celcius. All I did was set the vice gripe to hold the shim and set my Wen 2-speed heat gun to the hightest sitting. Around 40sec of circle patterns and there she pops. Doesn't take to long and now I can use any universal water block.
Thats what its all about. Do the VRMs get hot? Or does the block contact those?
I haven't ordered the blocks yet but will get back to you on that next week. Since my card is non-reference Revised card I can only get universal blocks.
I have to gpu's in crossfire here that blow air out the back partially. I could feel a lot of hot air coming out right there. I put this here and it dropped each gpu's temps a 5c.
that was there for a reason. it helps preventing too much load on the chip.
all he has to do is be careful when tightening down the cooler to make sure he doesn't chip the die
chip? you mean squash the die completely.
No I mean take off a corner or edge from going to tight on one side to soon instead of keeping even pressure whilst tightening down the cooler and yes over tighten it and you could well crack or crush the die
Needed to install a second os for about a week for to use max msp. Currently using it for a uni assignment that's in next week but my trial has run out. I don't want to illegally source it so decided to rig this up and quickly install 7, just use that on the trial as well don't need to di@k about activating it just for a weeks use.
ohhhhh took me a few min to work out what was going on there
Does it actually make any difference?
hahaha i have a usb dongle as my wifi access point as well.
Bought new card with missing heatsink for agp/pci converter. did this to try and help solve current problems with card (vs 36501g agp). made from zalman fanless nb cooler. removed half of fins to clear nb cooler, and drilled and tapped cooler legs on gpu cooler for new screws.
Shouldn;t you be wearing goggles/glasses when using any kind of circular saw type tool, dremel or not?
i already have glasses. so i am protected from direct hits.
You have still gotta be really careful. It's not impossible for bits of metal to get under the brim of your glasses, especially if you have 'regular size' glasses.
You oughta pop down to the local science store and pick up a pair for a couple of bucks.
Eye injuries never heal, and it's just not worth risking your eyesight.
its hard to find goggles here. even my college couldnt source them (we wear welders mask).
i never keep the blade in the direction of my eyes. plus i look from a feet away at least.
also, i cover my head with netted fabric.
inb4 dont cut with your hardware inside
dude that net does not protect ya eyes m8 !
use some ol glasses instead to avoid burn ins in glass .......and if a piece of metall pops off....
to be safe
not much chance for metal to pop off with abrasive discs. nevertheless, you can see that my head is away from the cutting disc :3
i have tried to procure some goggles. i will have to end up with using "gadiators" for googles.
dude gimme ya addy i can´t see that
this is 5 euro and u could still wear ya glasses if they aint 50th style
Sending protective goggles to India from the EU is not worthwile, unless this is done in larger quantities so that there can be some cost spreading. But I know you are well-meaning.
i gots the googleezzzzz'
