    Just a few hours ago I upgraded a friend's CPU HSF so he could overclock his CPU more. However, the chipset heatsink was in the way of the massive cooler I had picked up (for a good price). So... I pried the damn thing off the board. To replace it, I had a spare 40mm heatsink that was from my fried Gateway motherboard. Right before I pulled an Office Space on the board, I removed the chipset cooler thinking "you never know... maybe I'll have use for it someday." After I tried to install the HSF, I discovered a capacitor was in the way, and I could really remove that. So I gave up and switched to a smaller heatsink. Now I had the problem of its fan being damaged, which cause the whole motherboard to vibrate loudly. I went to replace that, but I didn't have any screws to put the replacement fan on. Being the resourceful person that I am, I used Scotch tape. I couldn't find any other tape.

    That's probably the most enjoyable "mod" I've done, although I am quite pleased with the fact that my two better machines both use CPU air ducts (the best way to do air cooling IMO) made with a dremmel rotary tool (ripping through good acrylic windows in the process), poster board and duct tape (God forbid duct tape be used on a duct).

    The next mod I'm considering is a cooling mod for a passively cooled FX5200. I think I'm going put a regular (not low profile, either) 80mm fan right on the heatsink. I'll probably use rubber cement or hot glue to hold it on there. I'm also considering modding the Antec Aria I use for my HTPC to have an intake slot fan in front. Right now, I have a slot fan coming out the optical drive bay and acting as intake for the computer. I have some wadded-up foam from a motherboard package holding it there and stopping vibrations, as well as a twist tie inside the fan itself because the fan vibrates loudly if there isn't something holding the chassis from the fan blades.

    nice zach!
    dude food for thought,i scored 800 more points in 3dmark 03 when i got my ocz powerstream 520 going to my old 6800ultra , my freind didnt belive me so he got 1 with his x800pro and he got 900 more points ,we both fainted pricey but u can take p\s from pc to pc threw the years.
    btw i like your pc zach ,what case is that,l33t!! =) beefy comps like yours need rock solid 12 volt rails to the video cards,antec\ocz\pc power brans and comparabe $70+ etc really makes a massive differnce,pc actually boots up faster!.nice thing about the ocz powerstream series is that 12v,3.3v,and 5 volts rails are all adjustable with lil screws in the back of the p\s itself as u tweak them up in the bios u simply turn the screw.again nice pc and what case is that.ty btw for your compliments on mine.

    I don't know what previous specs were, but if the video card was recieving an insufficient amount of power, the drivers would automatically underclock it, thus explaining and large point differences. It would also underclock it if it were too hot, any the PSU might help case airflow more than the previous one did.
