    More upgrades..

    Well I have been at it again. I wanted my system to run cooler and went over many options. Here is what I decided to do and the cost was not bad either, under $100 USD..

    My new heat sink and fan..

    Looks good Tinker! I love the little movie you made, nice work. The HSF looks amazing... and i guess from your results works amazing...

    I'm waiting for Thermaltake to release their Heat Pipe technology. Will be awesome.

    Nice heat sink! It seems heat pipes is the way to go now. I'm also waiting for Thermaltake and Cooler Master's new ones.

    I already did that I mounted the power supply on the outside of the refrigerator, the video card & CPU put off so much heat that the frig kept running so I gave up. Oh and the beer was warm....

    Nice cooler Tink, water is in my future

    Great movie Tinker.You are getting better at them.I purchased the Zalman flower cpu cooler which is similar except the fan is secured from a pci chassis mount which allows it to hover above the processor.It's amazing how well it cools considering the fans rpm's are only 2700. Anyway the improvement will protect your investment. Also, keep those movies coming.
    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
