Thanks, that was very helpful!

I cooked something a bit louder ^^

Cover the GPU heatsink fins partially to keep air routed through the fins longer.

Cheers,

You can test your ducting mods with cardboard and masking tape to see what works well. Just use good masking tape, as the cheapy white stuff will curl up and fall off when it gets warm.

Last time I was doing things of that sort, I ended up using galvanised duct sheeting, IDK whether it was because I just had some, or I was trying to be funny, but it worked okay. I had several pairs of tin snips to make working with it easy though.

Unicorn herding operations are proceeding, but all the totes of hens teeth and barrels of rocking horse poop give them plenty of hiding spots.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm going to tweak this duct to better fit the outlet on the bracket.
My FX can't do 500/1000 MHz even at 1.5V, I would probably have to solder the missing caps and make a GDDR2 vmod. So currently the card is modded to FX5800 non-ultra (400/800) and the highest temperature I have seen is 62C in Doom 3.

Do you want to hear how loud it is? 😉

OK, so prepare your earplugs 😉

I can't explain why I like this so much 🤣

Nice system, btw. Socket 478 and Rambus go well together.
