ASUS DirectCU / DirectCUII Owners Club - Page 84

post #831 of 1059
hey guys question again, its been a while but ive been busy..
because of my unusally high idling temps of 50'c ive decided im going to reseat the cooler and i have a few questions before i attack this.
the 4 screws ontop are the only screws that hold the cooler on? or will i have to remove all the shroud.
will i have to re apply thermal paste, and as i donthave any what type should i buy?
lastly, the technique to doing the 4 screws back up?
thanks in advance!

to remove the stock cooler, as you said it, just 4 screws, nothing more. after the 4 screws there will be nothing else holding the cooler and the pcb together but a fan connector, good luck taking the fan connector off, it's trickier than it looks (at least for my card), lol. but to be honest, you don't have to take it off really..

as for tim, any sort of aftermarket ones would do just fine to be honest, i've personally tried as5, mx3, noctua nh-1and mx4. right now i am using mx4. i'd pass on as5, the other 3 are solid choices, just pick up whichever is cheaper.

in terms of application, i've never done it to an amd card before, but since they don't have heatspreaders like nvidia, you might as well just spread it out onto the actual core, or i guess a dot in the middle could do fine as well. on the cooler side, if there are any visible gaps between the copper pipes and the aluminium base around the contact area, just rub a bit of tim into it.

as for putting the screws back, i'd flip the cover on it's back, then try putting the pcb onto the cooler by aligning the 4 screw holes. i think this is better than putting the pcb on the table then drop the cooler on top as you don't have a great deal of reference as where you should place it exactly, not to mention you have to flip the whole thing over to put the screws in anyway.

there isn't much technique as how to put the screws back in, but i'd personally recommend you not to screw them in one by one as hard as possible. i'd put 1 screw in, give it a few turns, then do the same diagonally opposite, then the same to the remaining 2 screws. once they are all in, give them a few turns at a time, in the same sequence as how you put them in. keep doing the same thing until they are all nice and tight. it may sound completely useless, but trust me, by doing this will assure you a great contact between your gpu and the cooler.

hope it helps, and let us know how's your idle temp after reseating the cooler thumb.gif

I'm guessing my overclock is good on my Asus Direct cu ii GTX580?

950mhz core
1900mhz shader
2154 mhz memory
VCORE = 1.125v

To achieve the above i have to run a custom fan profile, which is strange because my temps are actually really good. If i run stock fan even though it stays under 75c it locks up. With custom profile it runs at about 68v max and doesnt lock up with above clocks.

I have tried 970mhz @ 1150v but i get lock ups....again my temps are fine....what sort of voltage would i need for 980mhz+? Whats a good temp for this card?

Sounds like you need more voltage or less core to be stable..

Hey Guys, does anyone knows how ASUS ENGTX570 DC II Display port works with Samsung Syncmaster SA950D DP monitor? I use this cable, http://manhattan-products.com/en-US/products/9164-displayport-monitor-cable

thanks!
post #838 of 1059
I have never seen that type of cable before! :S You need to use a DVI cable or HDMI with the graphics card....unless you can find an adaptor somewhere?

thanks!

what's exactly the problem you're experiencing? i'm a bit confused...

anyhow, aren't display ports just like hdmi ports? i never used display port myself, but i'd imagine it's just plug and play...

if you have problem bringing up image from your graphics onto the screen, then it's more likely you have to change some settings on your monitor, e.g. choose the correct input source...
