Besides the silent bug we all have, i also have a color bug. I want the entire hardware of my upcoming PC to be black
. motherboard (evga p55), cpu cooler (thermalright T120B), ram (corsair dominator), PSU.. everything, including the video card and it's cooler.
This has proved a bit of a challange since I also want the video card to have dual digital outputs (2 DVI or DVI + HDMI), have black pcb, and of course - be fanless. The gaming performance and such of the card are of no interest to me.
So I found there's a black pcb XFX 4650 card with dual dvi, but like most 4650 it has a fan. I tried finding a silent solution that comes in my preferred color of choice and didn't find any.. so I thought of maybe making one myself.
I'm thinking of ordering a black andoized alpha heatsink and cutting it to measurements with a waterjet where i work.
Thought this one might do the trick:
if i take it with 50mm fins.. any thoughts?
any ideas what's required to passively cool a HD4650?
or maybe a different card i haven't thought of before i dive into this insanty?
