Re: [newbie] underclock 6800gs
with dual heatpipe cooling i fear that the bb might get too hot - and there is no extra space for case fans. this space is also missing for liquid cooling.
an option i am investigating right now is the exchange of the gigabyte's fan/heatpipe with a more silent one. problem here: the bb gives me space for fans/heatpipes with about 2,5 cm in height. so something like a zalman vf-700cu won't work (approx. 3,0 cm) *sigh*.
that's why i guess reducing the speed of the fan under linux might be the best option to get a silent (or "less noicy") system there.
