Introduction: Graphics Card Display
In this tutorial, I will show you how to turn an old graphics card into a display of how a GPU works!
To make this you will need:
- An old GPU
- Some sturdy card or wood
- Tools (Screwdriver)
Step 1: Take Apart Your GPU
I will not go into great detail about how to take a GPU apart because different GPU's have different ways you need to take them apart. For me, it was as simple as:
- Unplugging the fan
- Unscrewing the heatsink
- Unscrewing the PCIe slot cover
- Unplugging the VGA port
Step 2: Plan
Planing is a vital step if you want your graphics card display to look good. For me, I laid out all of the separate parts in a way I liked and made a final decision on where I wanted each part to be. You will also want to cut your card/wood to size.
Step 3: Mount It on the Card/wood
To mount it onto my card I used a hot glue gun which held it on well, but if you are using wood and want to then you could always use screws to hold it on.
Step 4: Done
You have finished, this can be hung up on a wall or even framed. I hope you enjoyed!
