    Sandwich a Slotkey converter card ?!?

    Hello guys,

    Back again ...

    I want to attach my retail heatsink/fan on the back of my slotkey converter card so I get even more cooling ... At the front side I've got a Global Win FDP32 running smoothly.

    Is this usefull and if so, how can I attach the heatsink/fan combo on the back of the converter card ? There are pins from the socket370, can I just glue the thing onto the converter card, or do I have to put something in between ?

    Some hints would be usefull.

    Thanx.

    Just make sure that whatever you put back there doesn't conduct electricity or you'll fry your chip!

    You got that right, I knew that already.

    My question was:

    How must I attach the heatsink to my converter card at the back and what kind of material do I have to put between it ???

    Just use some silicone sealant or something, just be carefull and double check that the heatsink isnt touching anything.....

    IMHO I dont think putting a HSF on the back of a slocket will do anything considering it will not come in contact with th cpu.

    I don't have any suggestions on how to do it, but doint it at all will only have a limited effect. You may be able to get an extra degree out of it. It would pretty much be like sticking a heatsink on the back of a socketed motherboard. I'd say it's worth a try though, considering you aren't spending any money on it.

    Thanx for the info guys, but I have done something else.

    My Celeron 400@500 has a Global Win FDP32 and it is hardly even warm after hours of playing 3d games. So I think it won't be worth the trouble.

    I now have put my retail cooler from my Celeron on my Voodoo3 3000 heatsink and I can now move it up to 198 Mhz. Before I had a small 486 fan on top of the heatsink and could only get it to 194.

    Quake 3 Demotest:

    1024x768 --&gt; Timedemo 1 --&gt; All visual settings at high --&gt; FPS = 45,3

    That's nice enough, so I have got something out of it !

    Anyway thanx for the help.

    F.S.
