Summer's comming and in Greece temperatures grow rapidly...

In my AT case my poor V5500 causes system restarts when rendering 3d graphics because of the the high temperatures (i couldn't keep my finger on her because of the temps.) More than that, the USB 2.0 pci host i installed leaves only ~0.5cm of air gap between her and V5's first fan.

The sollution is found with my 12cm TT silent fan. I made a hole in the case so it could get air from the outside and throw it directly to the first VSA and the other cards! the case temps are a lot better.

What i thought, is that if the TT can do so much work, and it is silent, an the fans of 5500 make a lot noise and do nothing, why not removing them! but, will this benefit or not my V5500? i will remove only the fans, not heatsinks (that would be stupid by me :P)

Also, i have 2 486 cupper heatsinks. They are bigger than the stock ones. And since they are from cupper i believe they would do better work. What do u say? :)

my 3Dfx pc GOT UPGRADED :D

go for it. the original heatsinks and fans were poorly stuck on. there is a way to get the glue to remove in one snap if you freeze the card in the freezer. look for the technique in this forum.....

Xmm, i also have another question...

My Heatsinks do not have any screws... How will i install them?

I thought of using instant superglue at edges and Artic Ceramique in the center of each chipset... Would that work?

I'm now using The Evercool Twinkling VGA Cooler (VC-RE) cause I couldn't get hold of the Vantec Copper.
