the Buffalo AirStation WCR-G300 runs pretty hot and too bad it has no ventilation at all, so i drill some on the back of the router and i add cord to hang the router

Iron had a runaway and I managed to delaminate a pad and rip it off in one fell swoop having to make a new pad and replace a smd resistor I lost in the process

Doing it with an eyeglass definitely is ghetto.

Today I do this active cooling to my ram. 90mm fan attached with black straps. Maybe 90mm was to big for this, but for now it's my choice maybe later I buy a small one.

I always thought with watercooling CPU's it was the VRM's that were the worry and that cooling RAM was of secondary importance?

If it's Samsung B-die and clocked high, it can easily exceed the ~50°C where it becomes unstable. B-die is notoriously temperature sensitive. I've got an NF-A12x15 stuffed in between my RAM and case panel for the exact same reason.

Of course OP is using a DDR4 board - but for the sake of inclusion I'll add that some DDR3 (tRCD w/ Elpida BDSE for example) scales with temperature, and basically all overclocked DDR2 >2.2v also warrants active cooling (imo at least), or at a minimum great airflow.

My ram running at 3800 cl14 with 1.51v so in some memtest it reach 4xºc and summer its coming to Portugal so I do this for now.. I'm still impressed with this fan at max fan it's inaudible, considering change my factory corsair fan(3) to some arctic fans, cheap great cfm and great noise levels.

the problem when you run adsl or gpon router is the heat, although it just run fine, sometimes it's worrying when you need to run it 24/7
so i make some holes, then as usual wire heatsink

I don't know if passively cooling the X570 chip has been a subject, but this is how I've done this (on a Asus CH VIII Hero).
No fan noise and the temp never exceed 55 deg. C.

It would probably work better with simply a 1~3mm thick sheet of copper directly sticked to the chip package but damn that's cute

Eh I just took the board out and put a dead transformer on top of the chip, begone heat.

No wireless though so it's smaller.

Wish I had som pictures of my old hacks.

My first overclocking attempt was replacing the stock 68K cpu in an Amiga 500 with a higher clock rated 68K. Then I doubled the clock frequency for the cpu. Sadly this caused it to try and write to the floppy at double speed which did not work. Everything else worked perfectly. Many games ran better. But saving data was a no go. It had an external switch to go back to normal clock if I was using software that needed to write data. But that had to be done with the power off, so you either had write access or higher clock speed.

Made a led fan out of a 80mm Enermax fan with clear fan blades some 15-20 years ago. I am fairly certain it was the first commercially available fan with clear blades but I won't bet on it. It had clear blades and a bluegrey frame. Drilled a hole in each corner, glued in four blue leds, added some resistors, hooked it to 5V and off it went.

God knows how many pc chassis I have drilled, dremeled, and/or bent to fit hardware. Zip-tying fans to everything. Glueing heatsinks to stuff that sometimes should and often should not have them. Suspending 2.5" drives with rubberbands in 3.5" bays because there were no 2.5" mounts. Used electric tape once to tape two 2.5" ssds together since the chassis had only one mount.

The list goes on. I will see if I can find some more recent mods and provide pictures, instead of anecdotal histories.

Gtx was just to my build with spare parts. (Future network storage).
I was using this cooler with stock cpu. (I used wago connectors, cause I've had some stock intel cooler fans and i stacked 2 together for xeon x3450).

IMG_20220517_151552.jpgIMG_20220517_151603.jpg

After some time friend gave me his cooler cause for him it bend pins in ryzen 2600 when he was trying removing it, so i swapped stock with this tower cooler (almost damaging socket cause when I was installing it tilted and almost attacked my mobo (gigabyte ga h55m d2h).
This blue white cable is power button from some old pc, cause front panel in this case was not responding.

IMG_20220516_231124.jpgIMG_20220517_201653.jpg

It was quite fun to make it, but i need to get some powersupply with more connectors, cause this ps from dell hase only 1x24, 1xsata, 1x4, and i guess fdd connector.

just another testing, with longer wire and the result is pretty good
with around 41 celcius on the bottom and around 35 celcius on the top of the wire
before that maybe around 50 celcius or more, enough to burn my finger if i stick my finger on that chip for several seconds
20220521_084902.jpg

i guess i'll stick on this model

wait, you don't put anything on that psu?
it could miss and slam the heatsink

24pin cable is so short that it is not possible to flip over to the heatsink.

IMG_20220521_115902.jpgIMG_20220521_115911.jpg

And I've checked this was flipped and the psu just stayed on graphics.

this is spare build, my official build is more normal :), just gtx 1070 ti mini from zotack with noctua industrial 140mm fan (cause i damaged stock fans) with pla adapter (one of small cases where 3d printer is really usefull )
IMG_20220519_194033.jpgIMG_20220519_194058.jpgIMG_20220519_194107.jpgIMG_20220519_194114.jpg

And finally i've changed old rubberbands in nvme heatsink to zipties :D

IMG_20220519_194600.jpg

Fan from graphic card is connected to pump fan header on my mobo, and is controlled via software funcontrol that reads temperature from gpu with that i can set quite silent fan curves, cause 140mm is way better than stock small fans (110mm and 90mm) that zotack attatched to gpu.

Asus RT-AC87U

the body looks ok but i suspect something not right and yea i found that the power switch is kinda miss, damn asus, you make expensive router with unreliable power switch
and so far only asus that has worse power switch, then i slip thick clear plastic and double tape it into its place to push the power

checking the heatsink and i found that the thermal tape harder to remove so i have to use a knife to remove the heatsink

Benchmark Scores I don't quite know how i managed to get such a top tier PC, I am not rich.
24pin cable is so short that it is not possible to flip over to the heatsink.

And I've checked this was flipped and the psu just stayed on graphics.

You know that 20/24 pin extension cables exist, yeah?

I have one of these PSU's i use for testing, and i use a 20 pin extender + a 4 to 8 pin extender/adaptor for the CPU plug

Makes life a lot less... fire-hazardy.


Edit: Thanks to extensions becoming cool for gamers, the cheaper ones often are designed for dual PSU use - you can just cut the extra connector off

my friend's mouse is broken, then he tried to fix it with super glue, but too bad he put that too much then the 2nd time he drop it and no way to tight it up coz the screw is not work and the thread is gone
so using clear tape to fix it up, i know it's kinda annoying but there's no complain. it means everything is ok
