New cooler for 6600GT (part 2/2)

Few weeks ago I bought a 6600GT for myself and tested it with 3DMark03. After few tests the computer froze up completely. I thought that maybe it overheated and after booting the computer I started Portal in window mode and put SpeedFan next to it to draw a temperature graph of the GPU. After few minutes it was about 80 C. Not good at all.

So I underclocked it from 500/900 to about 400/800 to avoid overheating and crashing and started looking for a suitable cooler and got a good one from Jipa (thanks) few days ago. After some cutting and drilling it was ready and I mounted it to the card.

Results (3DMark03):

Asus A7N8X-X, AMD Athlon 2500+ (1836MHz), 512MB (333MHz), Leadtek 6600GT 128MB

Stock cooler, default speed (500/900)
Load: 82-90 C
Idle: 50 C
Marks: Did not finish due to a crash caused by overheating.

New cooler, default speed (500/900)
Load: 57 C max
Idle: 36 C max
Marks: 7156

19.11.2007 18:02 akeehYes, pretty much as Japala said and I wanted to run it on 7 volts (the black wire from fan is going to the 5V line, not the ground as it might look like) so thats why I made it like that.
19.11.2007 17:35 JapalaIn many GFX cards the fan is operated with 5 volts. Even if the original fan is 12 volt one, I would still operate larger fans from external source as they usually take more current, thus loading the traces on GFX card more than the original -> potential hazard.
19.11.2007 17:06 Jarziwhy you arent using the fan power connector on the card itself? use that old fan's connector to power the new fan. :)
19.11.2007 14:04 Nice -not-girly- cooler with some attitude.. ;)
19.11.2007 08:43 YoshiAnd yay, i got better marks too, i got 7767pts with P4 2.8ghz Northwood and gig of DDR333 ^^
19.11.2007 08:41 YoshiReally sweet :) That cooleri is designed very well :) It looks fantastic ! I didn't have the time or patience to shape my cooler as well as you did :) But then, i got lower Load temps than you ;)
19.11.2007 07:52 ErrtuNice drop with those temps!
18.11.2007 23:51 akeehIt takes 3 PCI-slots below the AGP slot and there are 5 PCI-slots so that isn't a problem.
18.11.2007 23:40 JipaHow many card slots does that take? 4? I suppose it's OK though, no SLI on AGP-boards and most likely no need for PCI-cards either.
