(GTX 460) - Didn't buy enough MOSFET-sinks, dang it...
 
I could have sworn that all I needed was nine MOSFET-sinks. So I ordered a 10-pack of Enzotechs. I start putting them on, I look above and to the left of the rest of the MOSFETS... and I notice three more!!

Dang it.

Are these other three for some other purpose?

I have one left from the ten-pack, I guess I'll order another 10 pack, that way I'll have 8 left over for use on something else that needs it...

I'm not gonna try a better OC until I get the other ones.

Looks good, And I bet it performs good copper and all.

I'm just peeved that I didn't initially see those other MOSFETs. Grr...

BTW I have reinstalled the shroud. I'm not sure that running it nekkid really helped anything.

Plus my temps probably aren't where they should be yet due to two HOT hard drives that are about to get replaced, and this install is an a very old case that doesn't cool well (which is also getting replaced soon).

Are those your Mem chips I'm seeing with nothing on them to cool them??

Sure looks like them. That caught my eye as well. g

Max memory OC has been a paltry 1950mhz, low for even a non-SC 460, and that's trying with both PSUs. I think Enzotech makes some ramsinks that MIGHT be low profile enough to fit under there. I'll think about grabbing some of those too. All this extra copper will increase weight, increase overclockability, AND increase resale value!

... and decrease temps of course. :p
