This modder's other projects:
Nothing really other than 4x120mm Cougar case fans, Enermax 92mm 3- copper heatpipe CPU cooler with another 92mm fan strapped for push-pull airflow. (Actually keeps my CPU fairly cool! Never got above 67C during 15 minute stress testing. Stays below 60C while gaming mostly.) Copper memory chip heatsinks on my R9 290's VRM chips. Had to file down the main heatsink a few millimeters to get them to fit. Without them the VRM chips would get into the 90C range..Now they hardly hit 76C.
Special Tools Used:
- My brain, bare hands, and a screwdriver. xD
Honestly not sure. Spread it out over a few days after work. Maybe 3-4 hours total..? Took my time with it anyway.
Finally upgraded from my dated Ivy Bridge CPU setup. My R9 290 is the next to be replaced, but I didn't want my old i5-3450 bottle-necking a new card. My old PSU was dieing as well, so I got to fully strip my Antec 900 case and do some semi-proper wire management.
