Took a coolit freezezone cut the controller out of it and connected it to a meanwell variable power supply replaced the 80mm fan with 92mm and insulated it then cranked the voltage up on the peltier.

I've been running a big card for 9 years, it's technically a 4-slot. I also beat Asus to using noctua fans all those years ago!

Guess I'd need a peltier to get similar power draw to a 4090... its an r9 290x, served me well over the years.

Dimensions are ~275mm x 180mm x 80mm l w h.

Rtx 4090 founders dimensions: 336mm x 140mm x 61mm.

Love me a 290x. I have a watercooled one in my main desktop. Albeit slightly thinner then that thing.

I took the GTX 1060 I was using out of the relic in my signature because it was more card then I need for the games I play, and installed another ancient relic, a FirePro W7000 (I love BIOS overclocking and undervolting GCN1.0 GPUs using VBE7). Since this is a heavy single slot GPU, I realized I needed a GPU brace. After wandering my castle, I found a new dental irrigation syringe. I cut it to the right length and it made a perfect brace for 0 dollars and doesn't look terrible. :D

The w7000 is one of my favorite plug and play cards. I used them heavily for mining early in eth and it was amazing how much you could overclock and undervolt those cards. Driver support was amazing and proformance was great for a 100w 1 slot card

Oh yes, this one runs a 100MHz overclock so far on 1volt, down from the stock 1.120. I also tweaked the fan curve to much slower/quieter speeds to reduce noise/dust build up, yet card doesn't get over 68 degrees C under load! I did disassemble card and completely clean it and upgraded to Arctic MX4 paste. When I pulled card apart the heatsink entrance was completely blocked with dust bunnies like what you'd see on a laptop heatsink. I paid a whopping $20 for the card from a local PC shop! Plays Cyberpunk 2077 at my native 1360x768 at 30FPS on low settings, and Far Cry 6 at medium settings 30+FPS so I'm good. Other then these two, all the other games I play are older.

I used to run it under esxi with GPU passthrough and have seperate gaming vms seperated from the main one. Similar overclock bios flashed so I didnt have to mess with it and it worked flawlessly under passthrough and any OS. Played almost any game just fine. Ran ark at 1080p. Way cooler then the s9000(Tahiti) cards I had.

box server dutifully ran some containers for about a year in a corner of my room

it counts as whisper quiet if all the fans are seized right
