VGA aftermarked Cooling void GPU warranty?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I have a EVGA Gtx580 and the main reason i got it was 10 years warranty
I heard I get better temperature and more silence if remplacing the stock fans on graphic card with aftermarked fans

Have been recomended the Arctic Cooling VR004 and i am one mouseclick away to buy it now
but first I need to know If its installed on a Evga Gtx 580 will this Void warranty
how keen is Evga on this?

Should i just use the Default VGA fan save some buck bear with more temp and noise and not risk the warranty to be voided?

Will my PC realy benifit of the cooling of the Artic or Am I only getting the silence?
I Have a HAf-x case with 4x200mm casefan, 1x140 rear fan, Silver arrow heatsink with 120mm enermax trio + Ty-140fan (ordering the SA soon)
Corsair 850hx, Evga Gtx 580, 2 top fans and rear fan set to exhaus, side and front set to intake.

Also is it enough to buy this:
http://www.pccomponentes.com/arctic_...lus_vr004.html

or will i need to buy this kit to install it:
http://www.pccomponentes.com/arctic_...reme_plus.html

Is it compatible with Asrocks fatal1ty p67 mobo

thanks for reading , realy need some help with this

EVGA does allow the use of an aftermarket cooler. Just keep the original cooler/fan assembly and all the nuts/bolts/accessories in case you need to RMA the card. You'll need to put the card back to it's original state before sending it back.

EVGA Warranty - Specifics are listed under Warranty Terms / Product Condition.

Whether to use the AC cooler is entirely up to you. I would use it at stock for a while, as you might be pleasantly surprised your case airflow is sufficient to keep the card cool.

if you are going replace it with accelero later, thinkg about VRM.
accelero extreme plus is one of the best cooler in market but his VRM solution is just bad and insufficient.

best aftermarket cooler for RAM and VRM has zalman with his nice backplate->

OK you recomened VF3000F that will not work with GTX580 right away unless they released another version by now
Have to be modded and this is not the easy solution i looked for:
http://www.overclock.net/nvidia-cool...gtx-580-a.html

Also you say Accelero solution is bad and insufficent...
Now i need to know is the accelero solution still better than the stock gtx580 fans? cause if it is thats good enough for me.

How is accelero durability will it last long or does stock fan last longer?

One last thing when removing the stock fan for aftermarked solution
will this mean the pretty Evga label on the card has to go :



I kinda liked how it looks on the photo but since i never mounted a graphic card and mine is sealed i dont know if it look like that when mounted
See that green label where it says gtx580 on the pic
and now it strike me that if i remove the fans that label is also removed
since that part of the card seems to be the whole fans box or something?

but maybe the problem is not so big since i have a red/black-rig
and that evga card is kinda cyan.
however the accelero white fans look a bit strange in my pc
but they will be facing down toward the bottom anyway?

Ok thanks, i realy didnt wanted to mod it
however that green screaming color in a red/black rig would look even worse than a black with the white fans.

but i will think about it and contact some store see if they have it here.
