Enzo VRAM Heatsinks for GTX 460

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Well im using a MSI GTX460 cyclone edition, and i overclocked it to 910mhz core, 1000mhz memory and 1820mhzshader.
(i can push it to 921 1842 and 1000 but im scared ) oh and the 1000 can go up to 1075 but the samsung chip is rated for 1000 so im keeping it that way

Im a ***** and definitely will be buying those heatsinks but do you think its bad to OC so high in the meantime without them?

http://ncix.com/products/?sku=28902&...cture=EnzoTech

I got a HAF 912 case with 6 serious fans, GPU idles at 26 degrees celsius and during crysis i hit 51 (at 1.075v)

*noob OC question, i don't want to overvolt it, so i keep dropping the voltages to keep that OC i got and it seems to work with kombustor at 1.025V (review website had it 1.087V!) Do more volts mean more stability in some sense? Crysis crashed, well the screen blacked out, but i don't want to overvolt to hard.

Im only really using MSI kombustor to check for artifacts, which is not great really, i will run OCCT i take a nap. But im using Crysis as a way to check for artifacts and it seems to be running fine!

Temperatures on everything else? A screenshot of GPU-z temperature tab running at load and idle would be of great assistance.

looks like im going to need to downclock that 910core, its not stable, it autodownclocked (safety feature) and crysis crashed. Though, i did not see any artifacts and it seemed very stable at first.

I was running max everything really well with a single Gtx460 768mb

So let me downclock a bit take a pic then get back to you

sorry noob question, can over volting it cause it to crash? Like... its more stable at a lower voltage while running same clocks, memory, shader etc?

*got it to run at 921core again, but definitely not stable. In kombustor yeah, and in crysis it runs superb but then just black screens 2 mins in.

overheat :S? i thought these cards are considered safe at 80 degrees load!

temperatures started at 50 degrees and slowly and slowly increased to 58. Maybe it would increase even further.

Played crysis on "enthusiast" settings @1920x1080, 899mhz core and it was very stable! 35fps, everything was perfect, so im going to leave it at this clock. However, i would like to drop the voltage so i can lower the temps.

Without the clock i was doing all "gamer" settings


http://gpuz.techpowerup.com/11/05/01/gtx.png - idle w/ clock (it downclocks in idle @27degrees)

http://gpuz.techpowerup.com/11/05/01/96r.png -kind of @ load.. well i quit crysis and took a pic right away. The game initially was hovering at 52 but a long video afterwards heated it to 58 and the snowy level kept it at that temperature.

I apologize about taking so long but it took a little bit just to get the right clocks then i wanted to heat up the gpu while playing.


so are these temps ok? Btw im using a logitech g15 so i have real time fps and gpu temps, and motherboard temps, cpu .... etc because this is the make or break in spending another $30 for copper heatsinks.


*why did i buy the 768mb model, i cheaped out for no reason
