    Ahh that would explain it then, I just click "new posts" everytime I come on the forum.

    Will be starting the modifications of the kandalf I have soon, so expect pics of that folks!

    Those some tracers peeking out at the back?

    Thought I'd share a photo of the "amazing" cooler from the batmobile version 5770

    [​IMG]*

    Put on a vf900 ( which is lighter then just the shroud and fan) and even it beat the batman cooler by 4(i) and 10(l)* degrees, considering the vf900 has about half the surface area.(but is copper)
    The cooler does seem to be a vapor chamber of sorts, at the least it has a pipe coming out of it bunged up with solder. but its just a crap amount of surface area.

    * fin array ( not base) is about 45mm long and about 35mm wide about 20mm tall

    stock 34-35 idle and 69 underload ( atitool spinny cube 5 minutes)
    Vf900 30-31idle 59 underload (atitool etc 5mins etc)

    It's getting there...

    Okay almost finished putting my old PC back together,
    it's my first standard-case-turned-into-an-upside-down-case mod, it's a bit ghetto at the mo.
    I like the cases with the clear panels in the front, I've never seen or heard of anyone putting photos in the front of a case, has anyone else?
    not great for aiorflow, but I'm not heavily oc'ing and i'm using the Vapor-X so heat isn't an issue!
    Ignore the white CD drive, my black one's not working at the mo.
    I'm also getting a set of fans that take up one 5.25" drive bay.
    I've seen the Spire ones, any suggestions on better ones?

    It looked like this before (I did the spray myself)

    This is why they call it duct tape

    [​IMG]

    Manages to keep the heat out of the portion above the GFX card. Now that this proof of concept has proven itself, this brings inspiration for making a proper duct :D

    Though the first thing I will probably post in this thread after this is my new desk :toast:

    Oh thought I'd mention you know everyone thought the ducts at the back of the 5 series cards batmobile coolers where just for show?

    They are infact intakes, underneath the fan there's a few holes punched out so it pulls heat away from the mosfets.

    Certainly in the 5770 so I imagine the same will be true for the other cards : ]

    Nice job there and it looks like things turned out pretty well. :toast:

    BTW, feel free to friend me up on BC2 at the name I just PMed you. Just remember if I shoot you it's only because I care. :nutkick: ;)

    Wow, not something I would have considered doing but that's only because it would offend my sense of beauty. ;) Nice job just the same however and I'm curious to see how it affects the GPU temps. Have you tried benching it since you did the mod?

    Didn't know that at all so a +1 for you! :cool:

    Those holes aren't intakes, they are exhausts :p
    The ATi fan is a centrifugal fan, there is no way that it can suck air towards it from the side.
    Instead it blows out air at those red vents holes.

    Just got my new case and motherboard last night, still waiting on my final hdd to be delivered today, so it's a mess right now. Still got all the plastic 'condoms' on the case :laugh:, wiring is all spaghetti .... it ain't purty! My old bones aren't up for taking off the sides so you can get the full impact, it's worse than it may look in these pics!

    I did a round of 3DMark just to feel if it worked, and the room above the card is certainly alot cooler. Which is good, cause the fan draws air from above the card here.

    Not gonna get around to do some full blown modding this week I think, busy moving house.

    They still make Xasers :eek:
    This one looks alot better than the older models though :toast:

    Not really a fan, TBH, but was the best deal on one which I can eventually (maaaaybe) put a Classified 4-way, or something similar, into. Thing's heavy, and nothing to grab onto to move it, all kinds of weird plastic protrusions. Weird... and my last case was a Stacker. Might end up moving back to it. But I do enjoy having a mobo tray again!
