Modding a NVS 510 to fanless

Post by oddbjorn » Fri Oct 26, 2018 12:47 pm

Hi guys!

Since the Nvidia NVS 510 is one of the only small and cheap (on eBay at least) cards you can get that does 4k@60Hz x 4, I found it worthwhile to investigate if it would run fanless without overheating or complaning about the missing fan. I took the matter into my own hands and the verdict is in; it works like a charm!
