😁

Unfortunately, one of those V2 cards was artifacting already when I bought it!

It is fascinating, you have to be really lucky to find a motherboard chipset heatsink that fits.
I had to file down the mounting points just a little bit.

In the Bitfenix case the card did not have the heatsinks mod and i had a 40mm fan on it.
After the Define R5 case switch, i had a slow turning 140mm fan in the side panel.
But the card still got very very hot, so now it also has a Noctua 40mm fan on the Gigabyte Heatsink.
Both the heatsinks work really well now (the backside of this card will also get pretty hot, so a heatsink (the original V3 3000 heatsink) on the back will help.

I had a Zalman passive heatsink on it once, required some modding (filing also).

I only have two retro PC's, and only one of them is kind of show worthy I guess 😀

Tulip, a true Dutch classic 😀

That looks really nice and clean!
And that's a true period correct system 😜

Yes, I am happy with this system.. It's very stable and all components are in nice shape and belong together..
Inside is an SB16 (CT-1750) with a Roland SCB-55 right now.

Are you using the original PSU in that Tulip system?

Yes, all is original except for the battery compartment which I had to replace due to heavy leakage.

What is that battery compartement for?
Did you replace that whole metal part / that unit with the batteries in it and where did you find that?

With old psu's I am always affraid they might die and take other components with them...

The metal is original, I just replaced the pastic holder within. If you look at the picture from the inside of the computer, you can still see the damage to the case inside that the leakage caused. I am glad the mainboard is not full size because then the PC would've been dead.
