Here is how me and my friend cool down chipset on our DFI NF4 Ultra-D boards!
Here R some pics
My rig with 7800GTX
With my X800XL, SATA and USB pluged in
temp during SP2004
S&M + Prime95 (2. test)
OCCT chipset temp with lapped stock+AC Ceramique+80mm fan
OCCT chipset temp with Wolv359Cu+AC Ceramique+80mm fan
for tests I used one 80mm fan @ ~1500rpm so it is very quiet. Passive it can hold temp under 45Â°C!
I'm very pkeased with temps wich R never above 35Â°C (even with friends X1900XT) while playing games!
Of couse it isn't perfect mod (bit expensive, can only use 2SATA) but it is good for me! It is nice, cold and quiet
What do U think?
In the meantime I changed CPU (3000+ Venice) with 3700+ SD and put VF700Cu on X800XL and changed SonicTower with BigTyphon. And changed old PSU with Hiper TypeR 580W
here is how it looks now
