Cooling performance might go down a bit. Also, SWEET BABY JESUS what voltage are you running that let you hit 3.4 GHz on that thing?

If it's a trusty Northwood, it'll take it and ask for more. If he has the same one I had, it has a multi of 18 and was 133true/533QDR FSB. It didn't take much to clock the hell out of them and they ran pretty damned cool; mine ran 3.2GHz and still idled around 38, load topped out around 65 on stock cooler with a swapped fan. The only Netburst-architecture chip I miss :(

Volts are around 1.7V (original 1.55V). AGP and DIMM had to be locked in order to ensure stable VGA output. I tested the cooler today (12h test run) and the P4 didn't exceed 45°C.

// Please note that i've tested dozens of Celeron and Pentium CPU before finding this one that appears to have the best OC performance.

/// Maybe he'll get some kind of exotic cooling - oil will be considered ;)

Didn't have any electrical tape and it was too late to get some. Had to pull some MacGyver shit and use toilet paper with zip ties for front panel connectors. House did not burn down, and got some electrical tape the next day. :toast:

Crappy? How could anyone talk smack about THIS bad boy?! At full tilt, it probably does at least 10 CFM! (and at a whisper quiet 60 db too) </sarcasm>

Sticking shrouds on your tower cooler is yet another pro-mod. Using packaging tape to do it though makes it a ghetto pro-mod. :p

That reminds me. I should look for some gaskets for my radiator.

Yeah, quieter and more effective. Stock fan is not bad but I break it with leg (It hurt...).
Maybe CPU cooler will be ghetto-enough? ;)

Definitely ghetto looking, but still a good idea.

As someone with a reference HD4850 with the only change being the Dell vendor ID, I can confirm that it will work to save the world should we go into another ice age.

Meanwhile I did find a cheap way to get some Micro USB 3 cables. Going to pick up some shrink wrap tubing tomorrow to do a far better end fix.

Story behind this experiment is people at my school keep stealing the USB3 cables from the Wacom tablets we have. Unfortunately there is no budget to replace those so these hack cables should work well enough at a little over $1/ea.

Got bored so I took apart a dead power supply and pulled the fan, did a quick wire mod to make it serviceable

forgot where I was and was amazed that I wire things better than you do now

Why your GPU is naked? I had Palit GTX460 Sonic and IHS on it.
just repaste it since its been a while and its pretty hot. its just gt210 passive
but im kinda worry if it has no cover so i put paper as isolator to prevent any chance of short circuit

Hi, awesome tech brothers, I need advice on something regarding my laptop. So, this is NOT my laptop lid, but it will help demonstrate. Can you see those dotted meshes on the ventilation holes? Can I remove them? For some extra airflow? Do they serve any other purpose than dust prevention? I mean, would I get my vents melted if I remove them? The card gets pretty hot- 74-78 degrees and I think without the meshes, I can squeeze a bit of room to breathe. What do you think? I posted in ghetto mod section, because it looks like a hack job to me. :) Thanks in advance.

have you checked the fan? it could be slower so it cant cool it.
mesh is for protecting from dust and other that may damage the laptop like pins or any sharp object
but beside that i think it would support overal body too, if you wanna cut it i suggest just make the holes bigger than cut it up

The fan ramps up, as soon as I go into a 3D application (being a game or sketchUp) and it slows down as soon as I exit one. I don't get readings on the RPM in nVidia inspector for it. So I can't tell what are the RPMs. The cooler itself, I clean every 2 months or so with repaste and a new termal pad. (there is hardly any dust inside the fins at all). It's just the cooling itself is not meant for gaming. May be a cooling pad will solve the problem. It is problem, because it really does overheat. If the load is medium (like no AA, no physiX, no lighting effects) the card holds for hours on. But if there is some eye candy it gets SO hot, really fast and it just shuts down the whole laptop. It only happens when the GPU is hot.

Removing the mesh shouldn't hurt anything, it will just make the internals more vulnerable to things like fingers, bits of paper, dust bunnies, etc. If it were my laptop and the fan wasn't annoyingly loud at full speed, I'd probably just run the positive lead for the fan to a 12V point.

Every so often, I think I've done a ghetto mod and come here (or just show up to see what's new) and then I see you folks doing wire splices with zipties and toilet paper.

Well done, I am not worthy of the ghettoness of this thread. Carry on gents.
