Tore down my PC yesterday, disassembled and cleaned the CPU and GPU blocks plus pump+res combo. Still waiting on QDCs to arrive, so rather than putting the loop back in just to tear it down in a week I put in the RX 570 from my travel PC and put the old 212 Evo on the 5800X. But the case still needs airflow, and the front fan bracket is stuck to the no longer installed front radiator. What to do?

Well, it's obvious, really.
Use a nail clipper to clean it up a bit. There is an art to zipties.

I have edge snip pliers for that. But nah, this is just for a few days, no need to clean anything up in that little time.

Given the size and density of that heatsink it's no wonder if a single axial fan couldn't do much - you'd need a lot of pressure to maintain good airflow through that monster. Stacking fans seems like a good way of achieving that! I would tape the seam between the fan and the large side of the heatsink too though - that looks like a prime spot for air to escape.

This option on eBay might not be as cheap but it's purpose built.

S9150 is an excellent card. Wanted to ask: does it support mxGPU?
Also, it seems like this card has a standard 53mm mounting bracket. You may be able to replace stock heatsink with something a little beefier and more appropriate.
There are tons of dead 200-series cards, which means there are lots of spare HSFs for sale everywhere. MSI Lightning or TwinFrozr should do.
I'd give you one of my spare TwinFrozrs, if Elon Musk agrees to ship it at a discount to orbit :D :D :D

You can buy two flat aluminum sheets, about 1-2 mm thick and about 20 mm wide, cut them to necessary length to fit inside the case and drill 4 mm holes right through the aluminum sheets and the case for the screws. Buy 4 long screws with nuts and fasten the fan. You could paint them to match your case color. :D

For a setup used for a grand total of two weeks that would be quite extreme overkill :p QDCs are in place and the loop got installed yesterday, working excellently, so the zip-ties are thankfully gone now.

I decided to get out the Dremel so I could use an Arctic Freezer II 360 AIO with six 120mm 110cfm fans in push/pull and still have room inside my $20 Craigslist NZXT 440 case. All the fans and radiator are mounted externally. This should keep my i9 9900K cool above 5Ghz. Here's the first mockup after doing the case surgery with the fans & radiator in place. I had three Silverstone FM121's and three EverFlow R121225BU's on hand (same actual fans but the Silverstones are white and the Everflows black minus the speed control the Silverstones come with). All have Molex connectors. The case is also modded to mount an XFX R9 Fury X radiator externally at the rear. Final assembly will be tomorrow. Still a minor bit of work with the files to get everything exact.

My old ASUS RT-N66R actually has a pretty beefy heatsink in it for a router. Looks something like this: http://mail.smallnetbuilder.com/ima...us_rtac66u/asus_rtac66u_board_top_w_htsnk.jpg

Looks like you can get one used for about $30 these days. I paid... something like $100 for mine new years ago. Not a bad router at all if you don't need anything faster than wireless N or you don't exactly have a gigabit hookup.

You should see the one on the Apple Airport extreme, big ol blocks of aluminum which is spread across the top of the unit.

I discovered years ago that mounting radiators & fans externally frees up a lot of space inside cases plus usually cools better as well. On the NZXT 440 the only way to use that 38mm thick 360 radiator was external mounting plus the bottom fans raise it high enough to clear the top of the case so I could cut a smaller hole plus not obstruct the USB 3.0 ports as well as being able to use the existing case 360 fan mounting holes with no mods to them.

The first one I did externally years ago was a H100 too. I've got a batch of 150cfm 120 x 27 Deltas coming from China. They've been in the USA for a week now and nobody knows where they are. They should be fun to play with.

It’s getting a little warmer and I know my mems always appreciate airflow so I opened up the top a little and put a fan directly above them and slightly in front of the CPU fan, within about .5mm. They are about 3c happier with roughly the same noise I had with 4x 120x38s.

Edit:

Yes my PC is beside my desk, but that white stuff is not what you think..

Its milk.. dam kids.

Nice setup! That pic makes me very happy I have dust filters though, if it looks like that after just four months D: I just pulled apart my HTPC/NAS build that hasn't been cleaned in ... probably two years since it last had a storage upgrade, has been running 24/7 for 99% of that time, and used to sit 5cm off the living room floor until we moved 8 months ago, and it still had nowhere near those levels of dust :eek:

thanks Valantar, ive been meaning to get some dust filters i have one on the back of the case but its pointless to trap the dust going out. i used to just use the vac but it never got the dust out the corners now with the small pipe it sucks it right our no bother.

I wish I could run mine for that long without cleaning. Mine would have baked its drives long before due to that much dust buildup

Here is what looks like poor soldering of extra capacitors soldered to a 939 CPU.

The soldering looks poor because the 0402 capacitors are too small. You have to stretch the solder at both ends of the capacitor in-order to get them soldered in. To make matters worse the height of the solder can't exceed 0.5mm otherwise it will short-out against the IHS.

There are two extra capacitor per array soldered in at each end. I don't really care how it looks as long as it works & shows improvement. It seems to stabilize the CPU but it hard to say if there is any improvement in overclocking as I have faults elsewhere which is preventing the CPU from high overclock. Until this is fixed, this mod is still unknown if it has any real world performance changes.
