Re: Arctic Accelero Hybrid II-120 Liquid GPU Cooler

I see. Wouldn't having a much larger area of contact on the chip's surface be better than getting it from the pins? ie. I've seen a few thermal images of GPUs and the whole chip is highlighted in red no just the pins. But it's not the chip's surface...it's the plastic package that encapsulates the ...

Increase the copper on the board (like Gigabyte did a while back) and lower the IC temps. Add thermal pads and a big honk...

Especially with the abundance of Elpida vram chips (which as I understand are not as OCable as the Samsung and Hynix chips but also don't do as well as the other 2 at high temperatures) it seems counter intuitive to p...

Phanteks evolv and Nanoxia Deep Silence 4 help

I'm considering buying these 2 cases for my micro ATX build. Nanoxia Deep Silence 4 seems to be a mini version of the DS1 but DS1 wasn't that well received on SPCR so I was wondering if anyone has firsthand experience with this case and how it cools + blocks noise. Another case I am VERY interested ...
