    9800pro mod pic/question


    Ok my fan died on my 9800 witch i found out after pickin up my mad dog 450watt psu (3 fans ) so i freak out lol and steal a fan off a old heatsink and it bolted up ^_^ i was so happy and now after like gaming doom 3 for hours then some call of duty etc....the heatsink doesn't even get hot so my question is should i get a aftermarket cooler or is my "ghetto mod" good enogh? i mean it doesn't get hot at all so i guess it would be

    nice work. i would get a aftermarket anyways though. and some as5 if you havent done that already also.
    then you can overclock it higher.

    Personally, i think your ghetto mod isnt that ghetto. Sure it is a tad, but trust me...i've seen worse. As for the after cooling solution, i honestly doubt you will need to unless your trying to oc the crap outta the card but even then, it still might not be worth it.

    Max overclock your card and then try comparing that to what other people get with the same manufacturer/specs. Also, you could get a temp probe and get a rough idea of how hot it is but i think your prolly good.

    Oh ya, you might want to tear off the heatsink and apply some as5 or sumthin then put it back if that doesnt frighten you

    yes, pull the little pin out from the heatsink side, the center pin of it. be very careful and use tweezers or something. put the videocard on a washcloth or towel securely on a counter with lots of light. dont slip and jab the card.

    Very nice looking I think. you may want to try getting a copper 1U heatsink & drilling mounting holes for a cooling upgrade if you'd like an inexpencive option.
