Default GBOGH™ x1900xtx cooler



I call this the Go Big Or Go Home™ cooler
Took me a while to install it, mainly because the stock zalman fan hits the 3rd pci slot below the card. If it was a pcie slot im sure the fan would clear it since its shorter then a pci slot.
I almost gave up when i couldnt fit it originally but then i noticed that i had a spare 80mm fan(the zalman one is 92mm i believe), so i took it apart, drilled some holes and attached it to the stock zalman bracket and slotted the holes a bit to offset it.



And the results? Lets just say that it idles in the low 40's and peaks in the low 60's in rthdribl and is dead silent... something the stock cooler couldnt be. Now all i need is some fragtape to attach my lil ram sinks.

Very nice idd. But why are so many people complaining about the noise? I installed a x1900xt 2 days ago and i don't hear it. It's very quiet.

When that cooler revs up it sounds like a vaccuum. Maybe your room or case has a high enough ambient noise not to notice it, the only time i really heard my x1800xt's cooler on full was during POST.






You may have voided your warrenty, but nice work
