p870dm(g) Cooling/mods suggestions.

Recommended Posts

Since I switched over to a single card I have all this extra space and a heat sink and fan no longer in use. 

 

I was wondering if there would be a cheap alternative to buying the duel/6 pipe heat-sink - It is pretty expensive.

 

Is there a way to mod/bridge the one two I have now . I attached a photo of what it looked like before I switched to a single card. Basically the right (slave) is empty. 

 

Of course I am not expecting a mod that would work as good as the 6-pipe heat sink built for my system. But it would be cool if I could use what I have and get my temps a little lower.

i remember someone over at NBR had massive heatsink mod.

BTW, you can insert any card under the slave GPU slot to enable the slave fan.

      I own a Clevo P151SM1 that I bought in a hurry last year after my Alienware died on me. It's done a good job of playing everything I've thrown at it but lately, it's been shutting itself off when I play certain games or graphics-heavy programs. When idle it sits around 38C which is great. But when I get into a game it skyrockets up to 97C as the last recorded temp before it shuts itself off. I've cleaned the fans and keep it on an elevated cooling pad (no fans on the pad cause I broke them) but it gets plenty of air. I know that 97C is probably damaging the card and I don't want that. Does it look like I'm going to have to repaste it?  I've attached my latest readings if that would help.

      Having pondered over a eGPU build I instead decided to put my GPU inside my 15.6 laptop by extending the laptop base. I have a Dell optiplex 390 where my GTX 750ti LP once lived but as I now spend more time with my laptop on the sofa the Dell optiplex is now a donor for my gaming laptop build. I'm using the Dell motherboard for this build. It has a i5-2400 CPU - 8GB DDR3 RAM - MSI GTX 750ti LP GPU. The Dell PSU is too big for this build so I will be using a Seasonic SS-250SU 250W PSU. The laptop used for this build is a Fujitsu LifeBook AH530 that has a 1366x768 LED screen, this screen will be replaced with a higher resolution 1600x900 screen. The extended base of the laptop is now 6.5 cm.
       
      Parts needed to complete the build:
      Seasonic SS-250SU 250W PSU
      PCI Express 16x Flexible Extension cable
      LP156WD1 (TL)(B1) 15.6" LED 1600x900 screen
      LCD Controller Board
      Ultra slim keyboard with touchpad
       
      Work so far in pictures:

      So, here is another version of the m18xR1 bios for your enjoyment.
      Bios Version:  A05
      Update Version: 2.0
       
      **WARNING:  PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR INTEL ME(Intel Management Engine) MUST BE THE ORIGINAL.  If' you've updated, please make sure you downgrade back to stock Intel ME!  **
       
      I've updated the following:
      Unlocked A05 (slv7's unlocked version)
      iRST 12.9.0,
      Atheros LAN ROM 2.0.6.6
      vbios 2171 (latest) 
      Microcode Updated
      M.2 support (with adapter needed)
      And more...  (But these are all I can remember)
       
      This version RST will work with RAID, TRIM for RAID, etc... 
      ***  This is the MOST STABLE VERSION! ***
       
      If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask!
       
      (On a side note - if ANYONE is willing, I MIGHT know how to get legacy to work on 800m+ video cards.  But I need GOOD testers that know how to recovery flash and POTENTIALLY use SPI programmers in case of bad flash)!  PM me if interested!
