Does GPU Shroud modding actually a thing?

Go to solution Solved by SeiberGraff,

nevermind.. i found the old thread.

its actually doable. and it looks slick too for a ghetto gpu cooling

its not like a custom shroud with ghetto fans but a shroud of a brand with another brand, or 3D printed shroud with matching mounting holes but different design.
like a RTX 3070 but with 1080 Ti design but enlarged with 3D Prints. is it actually doable?

I don't see why it couldn't be done with at least some models if you really know what you're doing in CAD and 3D Printing, but at the same time I don't see a whole lot of point to it. If you're doing an aesthetic show build that would only really work with one of those older cards, why not just use one of those older cards? And if you are doing something for a personal build, this just seems like way more effort for relatively minimal improvement. 

 

The ghetto fan method at least has a reason to exist as you're putting on better fans than originally and/or replacing dead fans to fix a "broken" card on the cheap. This just doesn't.

^^^

Assuming you dont use the thing and most ppl dont use aesthetic showbuilds since theyre just one off things usually made to post on social media and have the parts be reused for another show build

Just upgrading the gpu fans to get better temps than stock which id totally do myself cause who the heck ever uses those extra pcie slots anyway? Just stick some 38mm or thicker fans on your gpu and boom lower temps and much quieter if you control the speed

Me too. There's a recent thread from a guy who made some custom parts for his case. Should have yesterday's date. 

I've been using computers since around 1978, started learning programming in 1980 on Apple IIs, started learning about hardware in 1990, ran a BBS from 1990-95, built my first Windows PC around 2000, taught myself malware removal starting in 2005 (also learned on Bleeping Computer), learned web dev starting in 2017, and I think I can fill a thimble with all that knowledge. 😉 I'm not an expert, which is why I keep investigating the answers that others give to try and improve my knowledge, so feel free to double-check the advice I give.

I almost forgot. The YTer, Snaxan, did a customization of her new build and I was really impressed with her skills. It's her tribute to God of War. Check it out!

i know.. but i just asking is it ACTUALLY possible to just rip the frame, make a new design with the fans. then selling them or show it off because of the fans are dead.

is it possible or doable. thats the question.
