Slipstream Enhancement kit review
Franco on September 07, 1999
it’s not strange to see all kind of people getting a boost by
overclocking their computers, I mean, overclocking is no longer
something only experimented people do.
a matter of fact, overclocking is so popular and attractive that
you can see most TNT2 based cards from major manufacturers
coming with their own overclocking utilities out of the box, so
you don’t have to modify the registry to do so but only move a
little slider and pick the speed you want.
because of the popularity of overclocking we have seen a lot of
new small companies bringing video card cooling solutions for
had heard of the Slipstream Enhancement kit from Overclk, this
wasn’t only the usual cooler for your TNT2 or Voodoo3 but this
one came with its own overclocking and tweaking utility as well
as some game “optimizers”.
kit took my attention and the truth is that I wanted to see what
it could do for an already overclocked ASUS V-3800 DELUXE TNT2
card and a 3dfx Voodoo3 3000.
Slipstream Enhancement kit includes the following:
Thermo Coupler fan/heatsink Assembly with mounting stand
Pipette – Used for dispensing Alcohol during the heatsink
removal stage installation
- Razor Blade
– Used for removing epoxies and thermal tapes during
- Cube of
Thermal Tape – Used for factory restoration ONLY
I had to remove the original heatsink/fan by pressing the
retainer pins located in the back of my video card, this was
very easy to do, I should mention as part of the kit came a
paper with Installation instructions and pics so first timers
won’t have a problem doing this.
next step was removing all the thermal grease left on the chip,
I did this using a razorblade that came with the Slipstream kit,
and then I was ready for slapping the Thermo Couple on the chip.
