    What does the SD Card Mod do?

    I have a 60x60x10 fan in my V2.2 running at 251mw and 228mhz going to install Heatsinks with it but what heatsinks should I get? Some graphics cards here look like they can fit... Can I take them off clean the bottom and put some AS5 and Make it work?

    Greetings. For starters, you're wasting time, energy, and your router's life-span (not to mention it's probably illegal) running your transmit power at 251mW. You're gaining nothing in distance, and probably creating so much noise that the signal is drastically degraded. You'd be better off running it between 30 and maybe 70. I run mine at 37 and can take the lap top anywhere on my 4 acres. High gain antennas work well too. Just crank that hack back down...it's not worth it.

    As far as your processor OC'ing, 228's just the starting point! I have mine up to 252 with no problems (yet). Remember, you can brick it by cranking up the processor speed, and if you're not able to JTAG it, you've got a brick.

    Regarding heatsinks, I use quality, solid copper heat sinks designed for either memory, vid cards, or mother boards. Any of the PC supply places have them, ie: Newegg, Frozencpu.com, etc. I prefer to shop with Performance-PCs.com for their selection, prices and great customer service. Below you can see the my heat sinks, and I've linked you to Performance-PCs.com's page with ThermalTake memory chips like I've got. They come with 2-sided thermal tape already attached...just peel and stick. They work very well. Good luck!!

    Yeah... I don't want to OC my processor any further because all I have is the fan in there

    Can I get rid of the tape or do I put AS5(Thermal Paste) on it? I've never used ramsinks before.... waste of money to put on comp memory

    You can do anything you want. The tape sticks the sinks to the chips very nicely, and has virtually the same heat conduction as thermal paste/grease/what have you. Given that, I don't know why you'd want to remove the tape.

    As for processor speed and transmitter output, you're generating far more heat with that transmitter cranked up to 251 than you would if you had your processor up to 252. Heat aside, the 252mhz processor would be far more useful than the 251mW transmitter. Like I said, a transmitter cranked up that high is producing far more garbage noise than usable bandwidth.

    I only have a single 60mm fan on my G 3.1 and it's running at 252mhz, and I have the fan cranked down to about 1/3 speed, and it stays plenty cool.

    Yeah I turned it down to 60mW, thanks for that tip
    I put it to 240mhz

    But how do you make a fancontroller

    Use a potentiometer (rheostat) as a variable resistor. Google it.....you'll find tons of info on it.

    There you go..... I was looking everywhere for what it's called
