Macologist: ATI Silencer on a G5 Radeon X800
9:07 AM | Evan Holt | 1 comment

Macologist has posted an informative article on adding an Arctic Cooling ATI Silencer to your existing ATI x800 video card.

As video cards get older they also become noisier. Sometimes using a can of compressed air will blow out any dust and debris that has been clogging the fan itself, however it won't help the aging ball bearings inside. Macologist has posted numerous steps with pictures to show you how to add this modification.

The only thing left to do was to install our newly-improved (and silenced!) X800. The G5 is now as quiet as when it came with the stock 9600, and most importantly, the X800 and case temperature is cooler. Not bad for $35 and an hour's worth of work.
