^ Fixed that for you. ^

Yes, I regularly add fans to chipset heatsinks. But that's because most chipsets need one these days. Only chipsets I don't do it to is mostly older stuff, like SiS, VIA, and nForce 2 and earlier.

Also, the board above that I posted is not an Intel with Intel chipset. It is AMD socket FM2 with AMD A75 chipset. These chipsets run cool overall. But still... if a heatsink feels too hot, I add a fan. If not, I do let it be as is (but gain, that is rare anymore.)

I sure succeeded in fooling you there, then

Yes, that CPU cooler is from socket LGA775. And it's mounted on AMD FM2 motherboard. That's the ghetto part, really, and the point of that post.

I mounted one of my LGA775 heatsinks (a pretty big heatsink from a HP dx2200) using nuts and bolts on a MSI G41T-P26 I have with a Pentium D 925.

Photos coming soon!

Default Re: The ghetto mod thread - HIS Radeon HD4670 AGP IO bracket

Video card from this post:
https://www.badcaps.net/forum/showpo...postcount=4586

It needed an IO bracket, so I made one.


Yeah, she ain't going to win any beauty contests, but the IO bracket fits pretty well otherwise.

Not sure why the VGA port cutout came out so large. I copied the IO bracket from a Gigabyte GeForce 240 GT (shown above) and also the IO bracket from a PCI-E version of the same HIS Radeon HD4670.

So now I'm trying to decide if I should paint the IO bracket (probably white or silver), so that hopefully it blends in a little better. Maybe?

How ghetto is this?

ASUS G70S, with an 128MB Geforce 8400MG out of a dud Acer. Since the original GPU heatsink was trashed (along with the two bad 8700M GTs it had, both were beyond any point of salvation), I made this from a 5520G MXM Geforce and an ABIT HSF out of a NF7-S that was dead. I also added a copper shim inbetween for good contact.

Not gonna lie - that is pretty awesome, actually.

I suppose the 8400MG runs pretty cool too now?

Gives me ideas for my Presario V6000, though I simply don't have the space in there. The stock HP/Compaq cooling is so under-performing.

Yeah, it's running a bit cooler. Not by much (50-60*C usually, with 65*C at load) but much cooler than expected. I might probably redo it though, except with a bit larger HSF (with same low profile) and a slim 80mm PowerLogic fan fitted on the cover.

An update to my previous comment:

It's pretty hard to cool this 8400M G with just an ABIT cooler it seems. It works but temps now top out at 74*C, which is way out of my comfort zone. I'll probably scrap the idea and order a original G70SC HSF + 9800M GTS. Since it's G92 based, at least it will run cooler than the GF8 series, I hope.

As for the original laptop it came from, it's running well in terms of cooling. The only idea I could think of is find a scrap 5520G/7520G and mount a 8cm fan on top to blow over it as it has bigger CFM than the ABIT cooler if it were to stay in the G70S.

Since I can't edit the previous comment - in regards to your V6000 - don't really bother with it.

The best you may be able to do to it without literally cutting up the case is add a copper shim on the GF6150 chipset you have.

And on a final note - don't have high hopes for Intel boards - 945 based boards usually tend to suck in terms of features, or have some horribly bad DX9 GPUs (GF Go 7xxx series, up to 7700 I think?) that heat up worse than the sun. The 965 based boards aren't the best either, but at least with those, the 8400M GS isn't that hot over the older 7xxx chipsets. It's been said some came with 8600M GS (the SE variant of the 6500 series) but I personally haven't seen them anywhere else than DV9000, which kinda makes me ask myself why did they go with 8600M GS for Intel PM965 boards on the 9000, and left the 6000 with 8400M? Both the 6000 and 9000 boards are virtually the same, save for a few ports that were placed on a separate PCB for the 9000 and a 2nd HDD bay.

I wonder if I should add a fan to the GMCH on my S775 boards...

my rule,
if i cant keep my finger on a component - it needs a heatsink.

If you can't put your finger on the fan - need to take finger from the fan.

hmm... design fault?
