Where to get springs to mount heat sinks?

I tryed with ballpoint pen springs but they aren't strong enough...
Do you have any ideia where I might get small and strong springs? (like the ones used on swiftech heatsinks)

Why buy a much expensive fanless psu if you plan on using a fan to cool it? Just get a silent PSU and mod the fans to 5volt...

Can I cool a 9800pro using the original HS and a slow fan?

Has anyone tryed this? I'm thinking about removing the original fan and replacing it with a quiet 80mm fan. Would this work?

How to silent this old computer?

It'll be used as a router, it has:
-2Gb seagate ST32122A (think its 4000rpm)
-300MHz celeron (no L2)
-250 PSU
-64Mb pc100 ram

I might be able to underclock the cpu to 120MHz (if the cpu is locked) :D
mobo doesn't allow voltage changing :(

I removed the fan only, didn't touch the heatsink. I think that if you just unplug it and add the 80mm fan the result will be the same... (there aren't any fins below the original fan :P)

Anyway, it worked great for me, simple and effective. :wink:

I'm trying to silence my brother's gaming rig: 9800pro, WD 7200rpm hdd, and a mobile barton. I was just playing with this Cpu voltages, and I can tell you, for silent computers that need some computer power it rocks!

It has a very anouying high pitch wine... it's a small fan turning at high rpm :P
It can be easilly silenced using a 80mm fan at 5volt on the stock cooler, these cards don't generate much heat.

Doing some comparisons against the 1750@14W and some mobile Bartons, it seems that it would OC like a bat out of hell, and still be passively cooled. Why not undervolt and underclock a barton to 1.1volt and 1GHz... it can be passivelly cooled too, only 15W max I think... :wink: AMD have introduced ...

Is there any way to change the speed of the fans when Speedfan loads? The program always sets the fans to 100% speed at startup and that's really anoying, I have to wait for it to reach 20% or set it maually :(

Semprons are the same as Tbred (130nm, 256Kb L2). A friend of mine got one recently and he Overclocked it and undervolted at the same time :P It comes with a default 1.65 volt and 1666MHz, he has it running at 1.4volt and 2000MHz :wink: I'm guessing it could make 1500MHz with 1.1volt maybe... (24W)

That would be worst than just slapping the heatsink on the cpu...
