This has been in my mind for long time now and finally I started to work on it. Found out that my friend had a spare Socket A bulkcooler that he got with his CPU.

The "startingpoint" is a bit messy, a hotglue fanmod with the regular GF4 cooler (Yes, the card is very dusty...)

Finally, after maybe 20 minutes I got the cooler off (Had problems with the pins holding it down, so I got angry and cutted the pins in half :() The bottom of the normal cooler was a shock, it was very scratchy (doesn't show up in the pictures tho)

The GPU after cleaning the old messy stuff off (GF4Ti4200)
Image

New cooler what I'll use (it has a somekind of a heatplate in it, so I screwed it off)
Image
Image

Quite messy :P
Image

And some fitting, the new cooler is precisely same width than the normal cooler :) :)
Image

Some planning with pens, what to cut out etc...
Image
Image

Well thats all for now, more pics maybe tomorrow, when I get a Ferm from my friend (My own Ferm is a bit broken, so I'll borrow my friend's Ferm)

All the pics --> HERE!

that looks like a great idea. I'm gonna take a guess that you are putting a fan on the top of that heat sink?

Thats gonna take up a good 2-3 PCI slots though :lol:

but if that doesnt matterthan its no big deal.

Well, I don't know yet, I have two 12cm fans on the side and the other one blows almost directly to the graphics card, but own fan for this might be better (I have the original fan for the heatsink, I'll put it to 7 volts and vóila :wink: )
Maybe I'll try that little mod, that somebody made; Old soundcard or some other old PCI card and scratch off the PCI contacts from the card and make a big hole to it and attach a bigger fan to it, so it doesn't stress the graphics card so much.

And what comes to PCI slots, it doesn't really matter, because I have only 2 PCI cards and total of 6 PCI slots, so 4 slots to use :wink:

I thought it was a very neet idea. I wish manufactuers would do something like that. Not use old soundcards, but make a slot cooler like that. Manufacturers done know nuttin, they rely on us(modders) to give them ideas about new products(ex: Glow pads, lights in fans, windows in cases and power supplies, etc.)

That sucks air from the case/card.........I want something that blows onto it. Unless the soundcard is a sucker, then all you do is turn it around.

Updates...

Here are some pictures what it looks now after cutting (have to do some sanding and polishing for it)

The screws that are in some of the pictures are too big, so I have to go and find a bit smaller ones :(

Comparison picture, original vs. new one

Heatsinks for memorychips of the graphics card (More cutting for it soon, both of the blocks in 4 parts, so it makes a total of 8 little heatsinks, one for every chip :P )

I know that, I meant that they don't fit in the holes of the card and I don't have the guts to bigger the holes :?

Just get some smaller screws and use washers if you have to.....use rubber washers if possible.
