I'm going to see how this all plays out. I really don't want to rely on epoxy on my $500 gpu. I might go with the accellro extreme...

honestly the pressure of his ring on the stock ring on the pump makes the epoxy pretty much unnecessary

Yeah. I just feel stuck on deciding how to cool my hot card. I really do like this method. I think I'll still end up purchasing a ring so I have the ability to make one of these modifications without all the extra work. I just need some money in my paypal.

The Epoxy is really to make the installation easier. If you are willing to juggle with the card a little bit, you do not need it. Just know that the cooler will be able to rotate until you tighten the screws down.

Unfortunately it seems the 5770 is too small. The screw holes are under the pump...

yea that is what i thought i wonder though if you could do one where the screw holes on the mount just go inwards towards the screw holes on the card?

Could the whole thing be powder coated once the epoxy has gone off so it looks more oem ???.

Also, do you not use any washers when installing ????.

Are the nuts you use locking nuts ????.

Can an evga gtx 580 back plate be used still ????.

Finally, does the blower fan do a good enough job of cooling the ram and vrms and have you tried overclocking to see if the fan is up to it or even gives bigger headroom ????.

Thanks !!!!!

Dave.

@ iCrap: It would be hard to do. I would need to design a bracket to go around and under the waterblock with threaded holes. There isn't enough space to just run the screws at an angle...

@Spinal chord: You can paint and sand the epoxy (at least the one I used) it says so on the tube.
I am not using any washer or locking nuts. The thing does not vibrate so I have no reason to do anything like this. The locking mechanism is the same as the OEM.
If you look at the pictures I posted... you might be able to see that my cards in spite of being Zotac all have an eVGA backplate.

The Blower fan cools the VRM, the RAM and the GPU. It is now only cooling the VRM and the RAM with a larger air intake than OEM. Why would it not be enough??? Think about it. I am running my cards at 950/2200 right now and will try to go higher when I get more time.
