Custom mounting bracket for the Infinity
I recovered material from an older Thermaltake heatsink and combined it with those parts of the original Infinity mounting kit and the new back plate and collection of screws and bolts.
Lets start the build:
With the Thermaltake clips in place too the whole construction has less tendency to bend under pressure:
This provides a very strong and solid mount of the Scythe Infinity on the E6600 CPU. Temperatures however were again on par with those first got from the standard configuration. Let’s see how we can improve this.Lapping the base
The base of the Infinity is quite smooth to begin with but worth to take a look at, here’s the base all flat and shiny.
Reinstalled the Infinity, performance still not much better… on to:Fin bending
Similar to the fins on the Thermalright Ultra-120 I started bending the fins of the Infinity with help of these 2 metal bars:
After 1.5 hours I ended up with this wavy construction:
More is better, next up, installing 2 fans ->
