    GTX 285 nudes ! ..

    Well almost lol ! Pardon my.. :D AS5 !! :p

    My GPU and or HSF needs to be lapped or shimmed. Its amazing temps stayed as low as they did, after the first pasting, b/c only about 25% of the GPU was making contact with the HSF. 90% of that was around the perimeter :eek: yikes!

    Will I be ok with the right amount of paste? Or should I lap /shim it ?

    The first attempt was way too thick. Still, load temps dropped by 10C, running FFXIV benchmark, and I'm about to test out the second seen below. :cool:

    Ran it overnight and idle temps down another 6C, 8C total. :rockout: Cpu idle is down 5C. :wtf:

    Do we really need the thought police here too ? This is supposed to be a 'for fun' thread lol...

    If we had let it drag on, or if this was a tech/troubleshooting thread and someone complained, then I may see why you felt you had to say something.

    At least you were being polite about it.

    Peace

    Dj We are all monkeys, you just need to look in the mirror a little harder. :D

    yup we sure do, if you want to discuss aliens and their craft, there is GN.net;)
    This is a tech forum and this is a thread of hardware close up, therefore yes, I guess we do need the thought police;)

    Cars also put out alot more heat, so it should be fine. Especially since this is a huge ass car radiator :D Looks like a truck's or something.

    Ah, the sound is like of a mediocre,humming server... relatively easy to ignore, once your used to it... and i have no problem with white noise when going to bed;)


    luckily, there are few people, that take interest in what you say ;)
    nice offtopic too, i bet the mods like you much more:laugh:

    It performs extraordinary, as its about 25 years old, and pure copper (weights a ton :laugh:)
    Here is a 1 hour Everest Stats File file while Playing MWLL (Crysis Mod)

    Good Guess! Youre nearly right, its the climate (heater) radiator of a Van, to be exact, a very old Model of a Renault Espace, still with the old plastic carosserie :laugh:
    The Inlet broke after Years of Service, and it was partly destroyed by salt,
    so i removed the damaged Fins (about 1/10th of them),
    gave it a good scrub with a sanding wheel,
    applied glasfiber epoxy to seal the crack in the Inlet, and touched it up with some random black paint.
    cheap, and very effective for me, as i got all the materials and the rad for free ;)
