Got new coolers for the computer yesterday and spent few hours tuning the case (replaced the front fan to a bigger one and relocated the hard disks). The hard disk frame is done from a piece of aluminum plate and the front fan is running at 7 volts.

The Accelero is passive at the moment because it keeps the 8600 quite cool. Idle temperature is staying at about 37C and after an hour of CoD4 with high settings it didn't get over 46C. CPU is idling at about 32C and stressed with superpi it doesn't seem to get over 40C. I'm quite pleased that the components are staying cool and the computer is now very silent. :)

Also check out the timelapse video that I made about the install of the Accelero for the 8600GTS. I made it just for fun and wanted to try out the intervalometer function in my camera:

-----------------------------

My rather low budget machine:

CPU: Intel Dual Core E2140
Mobo: ASUS P5GC-VM
RAM: 2 * Kingston 1GB 667MHz DDR2
HDD1: Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB SATA2
HDD2: Western Digital Caviar WD3200JB 320GB IDE
GPU: Foxconn GeForce 8600 GTS 256MB
PSU: Nexus 350W

CPU cooler: Sharkoon Silent Eagle CPU cooler
GPU cooler: Arctic Cooling Accelero Rev.2

The case is just a normal ATX case I got for free. It is just a temporary case until I get the time, money and materials for a custom case that has been in my mind for a long time now.

28.02.2008 09:37 akeehYoshi: Yup, you got that right. It wasn't a very surprise when I realized there wasn't any options for it, but I don't mind now, works good enough for my purposes like that. Maybe I'll upgrade later, when I have enough spare money. :)

28.02.2008 09:17 Yoshinah, i think it is stock freqs because if i remember right, that mobo has no overclocking options :/
