[O/C]"Extreme" Video Card Cooling on an "Extreme" Budget


Quote:
In the never ending quest for a few more MHz of power that any self respecting overclocker is constantly seeking, this question always comes up. How can I get this piece of hardware colder? As we all know, heat is normally the enemy of speed in our little world, and overclockers have dreamed up brilliant and sophisticated ways to keep their hardware colder. This is not one of them.

Well done first article! Glad your poor 4550 survived.

Thanks! It was a lot of fun. I hope everyone gets a good chuckle out of it! I think comical relief may be my future foray, as my clocking skills ain't so leet.

200w TDP is going to be a little tougher then 40w tdp

Thats...freaking...hilarious! Too bad you didn't get any extra clocks while cold.

Yea...had I know that it would have actually worked...I would have come up with a volt mod before hand, lol. Still, it was an absolute hoot!

I might have a more serious article coming soon in regards to GPU cooling.

Now to do this on a CPU! Should save some money and get the more economical extra-thin no-ziplock sandwhich-size bags =D

just kidding... but do you think this would actually ever yield sub-zero temps on a higher TDP card? Say... a 4830?

It would work on anything...just have to make the components in question bigger. I have seen a True 120 zip tied (who was that OCF member?) to high end GPU. If one was so bold they could do something like that and stick the whole thing in a bag...would need a bigger sandwich bag though.

Now how the hell do you manage to get a TRUE to fit in that orientation on a GPU? And does this work on cpu blocks? I've always wanted to get a CPU cold but those pots are expensive... Plus I don't know where you get dry ice at anyways.

Dry Ice can be found at most Wal-Marts, Dillons, Kroger...etc. Usually a big cooler near the front of the store with a penguin on it.

Zip ties?
I'd be afraid to try to get those zip ties pretty tight without breaking the circuit board
