Does the thermalright g2 vrm fit the gtx 580?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, i've just sent in my info for step up to a gtx 580 and i'm wondering, will the thermalright g2 work with the gtx 580? The mounting holes look exactly the same, would it clear the other components? And has anyone tried this?

It would be a great addition to my thermalright shaman.

It won't be 100% fit.
The capacitors on the 580 are a bit different than the 480.

Besides that, the cards are designed pretty close to each other, so it should fit.

The answer is 'No'.

Someone (appletree) has asked the same question and Thermalright's email reply as follows:-

Quote:
"Thanks for your mail, we are sorry that the G2 is not compatible with the GTX580 VRM part, as this new VRM design is not hot, we temporarily have no plan for it."

Despite what Thermalright says, it's quite easy to make VRM G2 fit a reference GTX 580. VRM G2 has four screws that are welded to its backplate. Reference GTX 580 PCB has mounting holes for three out of those. The fourth one needs to be removed. I just broke it off with pliers and filed down the stump. I also glued a plastic washer included in the mounting kit to this spot to make sure the backplate can't touch the PCB. The whole process took about 15 minutes and the three-point attachment is still very secure.

Pics of my build with Shaman and VRM G2:

Hello guys. Found this post and is of mine interest a similar question. Will the Thermalright G2 fit a GTX 560 (Asus Ti one)? Of course with Kisakuku modification as I also have only 3 VRM fixing holes.

you'd think if someone has enough will they'll find away to make something designed for something else to work with some other thing @_@ thought the idea "Pursuit of Performance" was part of the whole equation :V

find ways to make things works to get results :V

I don't think it will. 560 Ti PCB. 580 PCB.

Well...you’re right about that. But because no pro VRM cooling solution is available for 560 I thought I could give it a try .
Anyway, this is my PCB layout (not quite standard) and you are right. It's no fit. I could of searched for that. My fault!

I guess I will need to try do it myself.
Thanks!

I was wondering if you have experienced this at all. The only things i can come up with are the VRM's arnt being properly cooled, or direct x 11 is crap. I did notice after careful inspection that my VRM-G2 wasnt actually making any contact on one of the rows so I had to double up the thermal tape. What are your thoughts?
Never had a BSOD with my card, do those still exist in Win7? I have had an occasional "driver has stopped responding but has recovered" error pop up, but very rarely. I doubt VRM cooling is the issue here, especially with a properly installed VRM G2.

When you say there is no contact between your G2 and "one of the rows", do you mean contact with the six R125 inductors/chokes (larger grayish tall boxy things closer to the GPU)? Those normally don't run that hot, they don't even have thermal pads on them in a reference GTX480/580. VRM G2 manual doesn't tell you to put thermal tape on them at all, and they don't make direct contact with the heat sink.

You do want to make sure that the 18 MOSFETS (smaller darker flatter rectangles farther from the GPU) have good contact with the heatsink through thermal tape. MOSFETS dissipate most of the heat generated by the VRMs as a whole.
Here are some good pics of GTX 480 VRMs, 580 is very similar: http://www.geeks3d.com/20100504/tuto...m-explained/4/

I've read a report on Xbit that the thermal tape is pretty bad for conducting heat and that by using a decent thermal compound you can drop the VRM temps by 30 or more degrees. Of course, the downside is the mess you'll make with the thermal paste and potential clearance issues if you eliminate the thick thermal tape. Haven't tried this personally, but here's the link: http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/coo...pitfire_6.html
