Custom Ram cooler.

Postby sbrehm72255 » Sat Mar 04, 2006 10:21 pm

Here a few pics of a custom ram cooler I made to keep my OCZ BH5 ram cool when I start cranking up the volts ...............:D Under stock settings the ram does just fine with normal air flow, but when you put high voltage to them (above 3.2) they can use all the cooling they can get.

Nice mod sbrehm72255 8) And it looks good too! How is it fastened/secured though? Does it snap/clip onto the bottom of the mobo, or something else?

Two screws go though the mobo stand-off by the looks of it. Out of interest, how thick is the plastic you used?

All I used is standard 1/8 inch plexi, it's easy to work with and bend to the size you need.

To install it all I did was put some foam weather stripping on the inside edge and side it inbetween the MoBo and the tray, the foam tape makes for a snug fit so it won't fall out of move. With this type on installation it can be installed on any type of MoBo regardless of where the stand-off sits

The stuff I used for that one was from a broken window I replaced in one of my cases.

You should beable to get it from just about any hardware or craft type of store.

Here's a pic of one I made for a friend of mine. This one I made out of 1/4 inch plexi, it barely fits between the MoBo and tray, but it does fit.
