Side panel on Vulcan uses 200mm fans, but didn't have any. I have 180mm silverstone fans but they have a larger hole placement...

Zip-ties to the rescue!




Can't even tell there's zipties from the outside, but inside, this fan has brought every component's temp down by at least 10C :D The fan's structure also touches the rubber grommets, so the vibration is still dampened

Heres my Ghetto mod, it may not be my computer, but its my little cousins
computer that sits to the right of me, i did this mod because his video card (ATI 4850)
is hitting extreme temperatures, around 101'C in call of duty MW2 or WoW, which i think is UNREAL
so i got the idea thinking "Hmmm its cold outside" soooo this is what happend, and how it will stay till 2 weeks from now when i buy him a new video card.









Surprisingly temps dropped 50-60'C, letting him play under a FurMark full load benchmark at 40-60'C OC'd

The air actually moves in pretty fast, i put my hand at the end of the tube and i can feel it moving pretty fast :D

:laugh: i have thought about doing something similar but having ducting going out my window would probably make people think it's a weed grow house :roll:

But :eek: at the temps before the mod, I'm curious if you tried reseating the heatsink with some fresh thermal paste and cleaning the heat sink or went straight to the ducting option?

actually we did, it was the first thing i did for him, i went out and bought a few things of Arctic silver thermal paste, didnt do anything, dropped temps like 5 degrees, but nothing drastically better, i even cleaned off all the dust on the heatsink and cleaned off the fan

:eek: that was one toasty core, although i must admit the heatsink does not look like a great one for the 48xx core. the stock one has a couple 8mm heat pipes and a thick copper base and that one kinda looks like its only aluminum, is that right?

a vf-900 was not even able to bring my 4850 toxic below 85 load, under furmark it even reached the critical 120, and that about 20-30 times.I was was bench addicted back then :laugh:

:laugh: i only let my core hit 100c accidentally as i had unplugged the wrong fans, the vf1000 is a lot bigger than the vf900 with more heat pipes so probably a lot better.

Using a ducting fan and a bit of ducting i managed to get my 4870's core as low as 48c while over volted/clocked thus why i have tried the same thing with the 6870 i posted a little earlier in this thread.

Ducting is the crazy getto modders best friend imo :roll:

Instead i would recommend cutting a hole on the side panel window and put there a 140mm fan that blows in or blows out depending of the other airflow.

I think hes got enough space there t put the old type AMD AM2 socket Athlon square heatsink. Not the ones with 360 fins and small copper circle at the base fr recent phenom but older ones with straight fins and full flat square base. Just drill the 2 holes for the retaining pins anf Voila!

yeah in the front of the case i have a delta fan pushing air out, while i put a small fan at the beginning of the tube pushing air into the tube, in turn pushing cold air into the case, so all air is pushed out fast enough not to have the air sitting in the case long enough to heat anything else up. before the whole case would get very hot to the touch just from the video card heat

i could go buy an AM2 socket heatsink, but this seems to work for now, and should work for another 2 weeks when i buy myself an AMD 6870, in turn letting him get one of my old ATI 5770s.

Then when the switch will be made do it with a cheap amd stock cpu like i told ya guys here selling it for 2$ or could get one used near your place for cheap and post it back here after you did the modding :D I'm curious to know how much degrees it could get with that heatsink and stock amd fan
