Been through a couple failed experiments and now that I seem to have something workable I'm wondering has anyone else been planning/working on their own heatsink mods?
Can never have too many ideas thrown together out there.
Here's my current idea.
Started with a foot long 3mm thin wall copper tube.
Milled a 2x4 flat and cut a 1/8th inch slot .063 deep and secured the tube in the slot with .021 safety wire.
Using the mill removed all material above the slot.
Leaving me with a inverted copper U.
Realized I was supposed to cut a .055 deep slot and remove .063 and instead did the opposite, hey never said I was smart.
Relatively easy to fix later on.
Plan is to put an entire row of them across the outlet of the heatsink, not sure how long I will make each piece yet.
Need to find get some visual info on the airflow inside before I figure that out.
Gonna get some plexiglass, mount the fan on top of the plexi like how its installed on the system and use smoke or colored water vapor to see how air flows through the heatsink and go from there.
I jump from project to project in-between my work so I have no idea how long this'll take but anyone who wants to follow along and throw out suggestions is more than welcome.
So anyone got their own ideas they are working on or are floating around in their head?
