Improving Deepcool Gammaxx 400 attachment

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi everyone,

 

I just got a Gammaxx 400 and thought the screws mount that comes with it would fit 1151 (I mistakenly assume that watching a review on Intel 2066).

 

Anyway, I hate those pins as they doesn't look strong enough and also seems to apply less pressure when compared to AMD version. Talking about it, I have that circular plastic adapter (that comes on the Deepcool Mini) and would like to know if anyone has attempted to use it on the Gammaxx 400 with the AMD adapter?

 

And what do you think about this idea? I know it still uses push-pins but this design just seems better overall and applies centralized pressure... assuming all clearances match and are the same of course.

Not sure about sizing but this push pins drives me nuts before so I took them out and replaced them with screws and springs, so you can do that if your mobo have backplate which you can screw it in.

The plastic push pins perform fine. I'd recommend using them and see how they perform before deciding on whether or not to change anything.

Thanks, I will just get a better cooler with screw mountings/backplate, but I tested it and it works perfectly. The mount on the mini version is the same for Gammaxx 400.

 

Here is my results w/ 9900kf@4.7Ghz stock locked at 1.29-1.31vcore + MX-4 paste, 28C ambient temp.

 

With intel v. it started to throttle in 4min at 3% (not catched on HWinfo), AMD v. 6min at 4% (catched on HWinfo). Ran the test for 10min and overall everything seems the same but averages/graph seems a little better on AMD v. about 1-2C cooler.

 

Important to note that I didn't clean/replied paste to test on the amd v., also when I first tested the intel v. ambient temp was about 1-2C cooler so it had a slight advantage there.

 

I guess the AMD v. performs better but at the same time I expected a little more, the pins still do a great job.
