Cooler? Yep! Bigger fans!

That duct tape, though. I can see one of two things happening down the track. Dry glue on that lovely GPU or some greasy glue on said GPU.

I wonder if some spirit cleaner will fix that!

Naaah ...... just more duct tape!

Take that duck tape off before it melts and get nasty. Some super glue might work better lol.

While I fully support the spirit of the solution it really could use better attachment execution.

Zip ties are much better than duck tape and if you use black ones they almost look like factory qem.
