Melted as in they Failed, the let out the magic blue smoke.
And proceeded to burn.
Worst. Design. Ever.


Actually, I have never had Heat issues in this case.
Which, is a good thing really.

I'm getting there slowly, my GPU is the Fail part of my plans, but hey its doing something right?
I've had my eyes for This Apollo, on the 4670 from HIS. TD has it for 119, its tempting. 3000ppd is better than the paltry 900 this thing outputs.

One step at a time.

You know, I was a skeptic on the vantec one (I think, i've tried all slot coolers).
And it really has showed me it can work, although it has a flaw too. The LED's dim fast on those cards but if you don't care about that, then your set.

I use Thermaltake A2426 Cyclo PCI Slot Fan (Blue LED) in Canada at TigerDirect.ca , to collect all the dust and cat hair on the bottom of my case because I can pull it apart in two minutes to clean.
Its a really oddball way to keep the rest of the system clean lol!

@Soultribunal- i'd be more than happy to buy that slot cooler off ya if you're willin to part with it. Feel free to shoot me a PM and we can work out the details.

UPDATE:

So, I decided enough was enough and put my head down, took a deeeeep breath, did a prayer and ripped apart my mint BFG 9800GX2. Kind of a PIA card to dismantle, but I got it done. removed the OEM TIM, blasted everything with high psi compressed air (there was hardly any dust at all though). I then applied some IC7 Diamond TIM, painstakingly put everything back together and plugged it back in. Turned on the computer and voila! Booted up fine.

So I started up the 2 GPU clients and let the GPU's roast. So what if any difference after almost 2 hours folding?

Before:
96-98C

Now:
83-84C :canadianwave:

I mean holy crap man! What a huge difference. Now just gotta wait and see how the EUE situation pans out.

FYI guys and gals...keep your eyes open for an opportunity to possibly get some free IC7 Diamond paste. Be on the lookout for a thread (by me) in the next week or so for those that are interested in doing some testing.

Thanks for all the input folks...it's much appreciated. i may need some more help should I keep getting those damn EUE's.
