Talking All "New" GPU Cooler Brought to You by MattNo5ss


Ever need a heat sink to cool that power hungry beast of yours? Is the stock cooling horrible and your GPU is without any good after market solutions? If so, then improvise. Find an unused CPU cooler you have tucked away or even go all out and buy a CPU cooler for your GPU if there are no GPU specific solutions.

Here's my attempt at GPU cooling improvisation. I have installed a Thermalright Venomous X on my 8800GTX. I've done this so when I attempt 3D benching, I'll have decent GPU cooling.

Unfortunately, I have to go to class until 10PM CST. So, I don't have any thermal results yet. I'm posting this now to let it marinate for the next couple of hours and hopefully give you guys something interesting to view and contemplate.

See you guys in ~3 hours

@Mods: Feel free to change the title if needed. I thought of it as a partly true, funny, attention grabber.

That is pretty cool, Matt. Will it fit in your case?

Somehow, I feel like putting that in a case would crack something, unless you have massive card brackets.

Some tape is definitely in order to hold it up, or something like tape at least.

At least. Something for sure though. In an upright case it should technically be fine, but who benches like that?

Piece of PVC should hold it up nicely.

Awesome work.

Thanks guys! I thought this was a pretty neat idea, and I haven't seen someone mount a CPU cooler on a GPU before. Even on a horizontal motherboard I wont need any brackets or anything to hold it up, the PCI slot works well

I'm thinking the same thing about it being fine in an upright case as long as your bracket is screwed in. I might have to try it in a the only case I have left, CM 360 Elite.

Alright, I ran FurMark at stock clocks until the temps leveled off, it looks like a load temp that jumps between 48-49C (idle of 38-39C). With the stock cooler, idle temp was at ~50C with load temps into the low 70s C. So, that's like a 21-24C drop in temps

Not bad at all

That's decent

I love how it just chills there on the PCIe slots.


BTW: I spy an R3E

man, I'd get a bit nervous about that bend myself...you got any left over tubing from your wc loop that you can jam under there to just take some of the weight off?

I'm going to try and make a run at 3D with my 8800GTX/GTS/GT, never really done it before. I'm keeping an eye on your 06 thread. This is what makes ambient benching fun, you have to be creative

There's really no bend. It's just leeway in the PCIe slots. I do have some tubing and PVC from my loop and station that I could use.

Considering that we have almost identical hardware (gts/mobo/cpu at least), this could be a glorious contest

I have no air cooler for the 920 aside from stock though, a minor issue :P

Make it a 3 way competition. I'll drop my Ultra in the r3e with the 920.

Good thing i'm going dice, bridging the gap from 96core gts to 128core ultra could be tricky

Should be easy for you since my 920 will only reach 4.4 and bench stable at 4.3 usually.

The CPU score section will be mine

Pretty big gpu difference.

There was actually someone that had mounted a stock P4 cooler to an older GPU. I think it might have been a GeForce 6800 or something.

Great stuff.

A cooler with less convex base is possible to "fit" better with the (huge) gpu die.
