Default GPU watercooling.

so over the past few weeks i have been pretty busy but i finnaly found the time to sit down and cut up my stock gpu heatsink so i didnt have to buy any ram coolers or mosfet coolers. any way you will see what i am talking about from the pics.







you can see what i clevearly did, saved me alot of money, instead of buying those stupid mem heatsinks and mosfet coolers

installed and running,



looks stock

Doesn't look too bad, pretty good idea, I never would have thought about it .

How did you find out the temps of the vram?

Good idea, though the actual implementation was a bit rough.

its a bit easier to do with a 4870/90. the actual gpu heatsink is separate from the rest of the assembly

about the vram - most of the newer gpu's display core temp as well as mem temp in rivatuner/gpuz/any other gpu temp monitoring program

like burn said, it has temp monitors on the vram.

i know it does look a little rough doesnt it? i only had like an hour to do it before i went to a lan kindve wish i had done a little better, and possibly re painted the heatsink.

I may have to give that a try once I get my WC setup figured out and up and running.
