Whatha hell to do with those left over heatsinks


Now, I have these bad boys to contend with,, hmmm what to do,, what to do (Looks at bare Abit Siluro Geforce2 MX and gets a idea)



Welp, I've always wanted to overclock my video card a little more and really don't want to waste these nice blue anodized heatsinks. So, I slapped the remaining thermal tape strips I had on the two heatsinks and stuck them on the 6ns Hyundai Chips I had on my card, ripped off the wimpy sleeve bearing fan off the chipset and replaced it with a high flow sunon 40mm fan and this was the result.





Not a bad looking outfit, it looks real sweet, but does it perform, lets take a try and install it into the system.



Fit alright and didn't interfere with any of the other components on the mobo.



A good side shot of the heatsinks and how well they were installed (ahem, applause?)



Looks pretty sweet eh? (Yes, I'm Canadian =D) Pardon the crappy wiring on the fan, I ran out of connectors and had to do a ghetto job on it. I'll mention the performance increase in the conclusion section.


Just note: This'll be the fan blowing over the heatsinks on the videocard, a YS-Tech 135cfm 120mm intake fan (also bought at bigfootcomputers.com), should keep it cool enough, even though I've gone deaf from it's 47dBa howling =)
