Asus GTX570DCII, potensial issue with missing RAM-heatsinks. - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
Ouch! I became worried when my one 570 reached 90 smile.gif This was before wc with one DCII and one reference with a thirdparty Gelid Icy Vision rev.2 GPU-cooler. The top card suffocated allright with just a 2-3mm gap between the two.

If you get a cheap pump some tubing, fittings and a GPU-only block you probably could get away with it for about 100-150$.

I have a 570 gtx directCU II and I am thinking om putting some ram heatsinks on it. The thing is that I am unsure if they will fit with the directCU II cooler. the copper heatpipes are very close to some of the ram close to the gpu chip. Do you have any confirmation that they will fit?

Btw its not like the gpu is hot. I got a stable overclock at 960mhz core clock and 1.1 voltage. Memory is on 4000 on smart doctor. so guess that is 2000 if you are using afterburner. The core is 55 celcius when playing crysis 2 so thats not what I am worried about. I am worried about the ram which doesnt have heatsinks. maybe that will run to hot?
