That actually looks kinda professional
Thanks I got my inspiration from this great set of DDR2 ram back in the day:
2Gb Team DDR2 PC2-6400 Xtreem Series 3-3-3-8 Dual Channel kit
I call this the Swiftech Apogee XT version 1 Double Deuce WAR NVIDIA GTX GPU mod.
Came up with this mod when I couldn't find a single full VGA water block made for my MSI TFIII PE/OC GTX 560 Ti 448.
Like a grunt in a war low on ammo I did an equipment check and made a decision to modify a Swiftech Apogee XT CPU block for my GPU.
I also ordered a Koolance VRM-40 to cool vregs.
Card before mods in it's position.
Double Deuce action in full effect pointed towards all the water block builders who missed out on an opportunity to build a full VGA block for my card.
Photos from the project.
Port work on the Apogee Xt version 1 block to improve flow rates. Dremel works good for this.
MSI GTX560ti 448 TFIII/PE bare card with vrm/memory heatsink.
IC Diamond paste on both blocks. (Koolance VRM block.)
That doesnt belong here,first, its by far not ghetto,and second, its expensive, and it doesnt look ghetto. (looks good, yeah)
Also, you cant post the same pics in sexy hardware club and your PC atm, and then post them here... dont be too hot on the approval of others.
I know of someone that was, and failed miserably, after a while... i think the name was "Fits" or something like that.
Another computer enthusiast on a different forum called it a ghetto mod and I saw this thread so I shared. I don't see the harm. But delete my post if you want.
I didn't post all of these photos in the sexy hardware club thread and I didn't post any of these photos in the PC atm thread.
nah, you can leave it.. i cant do anything about it either way, im no Mod
(compliments me tho when you thought i was! )
Just for the future, beautiful selfmade stuff like yours doesnt belong here, sexy hardware is the right place for it. People gonna get depressions otherwise, and posting the same pictures 3 times in a row, doesnt make them better
(tell the guy on the other forum, if THAT is ghetto, i dont want to see what the real stuff looks like for him... must be rich, and only use gold plated items )
Dude If I was rich I would be sharing photos of a beautiful sexy Aquagrafx full VGA block on a HD7970 in the Sexy Hardware thread.
I might be crazy about computer hardware but I can find many beautiful sexy features in inexpensive and costly hardware.
To me this is more of a ghetto mod.
I kinda have to agree with u there bud. Its fairly ghetto.
It's ghetto for sure man, I think ghetto mods are not just about cheap things, other wise most of this thread isn't ghetto due to what we are modding
I think it's just a case of chopping up stuff to fit, using things in odd ways to improve stuff etc.
It's just a mindset
Maybe, our understanding of ghetto is different
for me, ghetto mods are mods, that look fucking ugly, but work!
And mods that look good, and work, are sexy!
More like doing this to a gx2 right
Or taking this 7950gx2
And doing this
another ghetto style that found from google
Is this ghetto enough?

Notice the res? It is held on top with a fan shroud the 1200mm fan wire tied to my water line. Need I say any thing more? Oh just look at the ghetto paint job! Pealing and chipping every place! My entire setup is straight out of the ghetto!
that is epicly ghetto
that is just... botched up. the fan grill is cool tho!
LOL well I did some work an now it isn't looking so Ghetto!
The paint is still all screwed up. But well I can not paint this thing right now.
exchange that tubing for at least some clear hoses from an ironware shop, or better, some aftermarket tubing... will look even better, for a slim price
Yeah some day. but I can not afford anything at all right now.
well, as you said, someday. dont loose hope, sooner or later, it will come together as you imagine
Yeah I have had this case for about 8 years now. Man I need a new case or sand blast this one and paint it really good. But some day it will all come together for sure.
Take 1x HIS HD5770 with a stuffed fan rip it out and replace it with the guts of an 80mm case fan
looks almost too good for ghetto, nice work!
yeah it stick up out of the plastic cowl by 1/4 inch I couldn't screw it in so used superglue to hold it to the aluminum plate that was in there it's also quieter than the original and cools better
that's 2 HIS HD5770's with 2 different fans that have had the same fan problem both fans come from the same shitty Chinese manufacturer "ZunShan" translated to English must mean shitty fan
yeah i was thinking its the stock fan, then i read ur post!
looks just perfect for it!
