Post your Good Ghetto mods

Recommended Posts

So, I had yet to test this gpu that i was repairing quite some time ago...(it doesn't fit in my case) 

 

so I made my own GHETTO case mod to turn any case into an open air test bench!

 

post-172131-0-12412800-1428211305_thumb.

 

While, I was taking my board out to make this happen I learned why it is important to read directions...Now, I'm an AMD guy sort of, but AMD's processors have been lacking so I picked up an intel one recently.

 

Story short, I had the Heatsink fall off on me... since apparently You aren't suppose to twist the knobs on the cooler for install (oops, directions what are those?)

 

just glad it didn't fall off while i was running the system overclocked at any point...I guess.

 

So i have my GHETTO card with a GHETTO case mod atm...(i'll take the card out and return the case to normal until i can get a new one...but I sort of like how it looks tbh...

 

(insert picture)

 

Well missing this pic atm since phone won't send them to my e-mail :/

Hello everyone and welcome to my ghetto mosfet cooler thingy I have done. So you might know or not know. Is that I have a M5A97 LE R2.0 and it doesn't have a heatsink to help with overclocking so I decided to make my own little cooler for it.

 

 

First attempt. So the very first thing I did was first go grocery shopping and get those little green tab things at Winco, they help tie bags up. And use some left over long black wire from the goodie bag from my case that I purchased long ago. So here is the first attempt at doing it.

As you can see that this is what my PC looks like. Yea I know lots of wires too lazy to improve wiring skills.

 

Close up of what it looks like C6U5Xvz.jpg So what happened here was that I messed up on the placement of the wires and the tabs. I figured that it would be enough to cool the mosfets however it seems I made the mistake of it being too far.

 

Now I had to move some stuff around and what not as you can see in this other image...

You see here I actually managed to make the fan stay still by having a wire go through one of the holes on the top left where one of the exhaust fans are. And another wire going to the Enermax fan and connecting the fans together to make tension and make the fan stay still.

 

Now I don't have the final images yet. However imagine the fan now being more close to the mosfets in " The Close Up " spoiler tag.

And yea my own little ghetto mosfet fan mod.

 

Also If you are wondering what fans I have....the one for the mosfet is the AMD stock fan. The left is a stock fan that came with the case. The two on the top are from a computer I scrapped they are both blue One pulls in air the other draws out air.. And the last one at the bottom right was also a scrapped fan from a  computer and used for cooling the HDD's I have. Lastly the one for the CPU is a blue LED light fan and it cools my CPU pretty nicely.

Why don't you just go to your local hobby store and grab a couple bags of tiny aluminum heatsyncs, thermal pads, and some epoxy. Use the epoxy and tiny heatsyncs to form oversized heatsyncs and attach them with sticky thermal pads?

 

Or are you too lazy to do that also?

Damn ... weird ....

well as long as it works and really improves your oc ... go for it!

In addition to that I'd get some little sticky heatsinks or something like that! (Like Vendetta said)


DX12 does NOT stack VRAM in SLI (read here). There is no 'Bottleneck' (read here). Windows installed the CORRECT way (Read here).

Are what I'm talking about, get a few bags of them and epoxy them together to make larger ones that will cover all of the mosfets and shit and then attach them with sticky thermal pads or fuck you could probably just use thermal paste since I'm sure it would stick well enough lol

Let me see you Ghetto mods that look nice.  Here is my ghetto mounted raid card in my 800D.  Too cheap to upgrade to 2011 for more PCIe Lanes.  :P

Added a Backplate Cutout to the motherboard tray of my Silverstone FT01.  Also, ghetto cable ties.

You are using an USB to PCI-E adapter for a RAID card? Don't you slow down the drives heavily?

 

Here is my passive (more or less ghetto) cooling mod:

Its a PCIE extension.  It used the USB 3.0 cable to extend the PCIE 1x with out the need of emi shielding.  Coin Miners use it a ton. I get 1.5GB read and 1GB wright on 4x PCIE.  I get 1GB read and 800MB write with 1x.   Not that big of a hit.  Every thing els in my pc will be a bodle neck when it comes to moving files to any other media.

Mistakenly bought a 3 pin fan instead of a 2 pin fan to replace my PSU's dying fan. Didn't feel like buying an adapter or stripping the cable so I made this simple ghetto mod and connected the fan to the case's fan controller. Now I can even lower the fan speed down.. yey.

People don't have a few hundred bucks laying around for a new system when that one blows up because of the PSU blowing up.
