Evercool VC-RE Chipset Fan Installation Tutorial Video! (2 fast mirror

Recommended Posts

I was getting low 40s when I first installed it, but with good airflow over the board it actually went down to mid thirties, which I'm very impressed by. They say a caseless system runs cooler, but I think that if you have a well designed case with lots of airflow the reverse is true. What I did was plug in a couple of fans right next to the motherboard.

Totally spaced on reporting bandwidth usage so I'll just do a copy/paste job:

wow!

 

My mirror isn't even listed anymore and yet...

I'm getting still quite a few hits and quite a bit of traffic (numbers in KB).

So, about ~15GB/month of traffic.

i'm with you,i think a properly set-up case will definetly run cooler than a caseless system.after all, we are controling the air flow to go were we need.not relying on convection.

both my cpu and vga run cooler with my side panel on.

unfortunately in my testing over the years, caseless setups always run cooler because there is no air restriction like in a case (even the best cases), and there is no ambient heat (ie: heat that is absorbed by the metal of the case, or worse, heat that cannot be absorbed by acrylic/plastic/wood cases).

 

I always set my rigs up caseless first, and see how far they will go, then I end up putting them in a case and 99% of the time the temps are higher all around (rarely too high to continue though!)

ok all i did this mod with the m/b still in was quite easy here is how i did it

first of took out a few wires cables that where in the way .removed my graffics card. then put a small screwdriver at the side of the plastic pin and moved it out a bit to allow me to get my Pincers on to the plasic screw and cut it now it did not cut all the way it left about 1/2 mm so then i did the same the other side.then i got my needle nose plyers and twisted the ends and of they popped out.ok now when i removed the fan the pins where a little to big to be pushed Though the board so i got a set of nail clippers(lol)and snipped them off be carefull not to Touch m/b and the pussed them though and out they fell too the bottom of the case. im glad i Watched ag insall video b4 hand as it gave me a look at how it worked

Does the VC-RF do a pretty good job of cooling a 6600GT?

 

 

Yes it does, I don't remember what kind of temps I am getting now, but the VC-RF dropped the temps more then I expected it to.

 

If I get a chance, I will post my temps now with the VC-RF.

 

For ~$10 it is definately worth it...
