Gtx 460 cooling

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey all, I have a replacement gtx 460. EVGA gtx 460 EE. Currently at .987volt. 875mhz stable (cool eh) and its loading in games 55 degrees max. I have put a decent fan blowing cold air into the gpu, which has lowered the temps from 65 load, to 55 load. Tested that in gta iv to. same temps every game. Now, the question i have is, Is that good? i have read that is EXCELLENT for load temps in games. The secondary question i have is, I have an MSI HAWK gtx 460 sitting here, which is not working..(shorts out). Can i use the cooler of that and put it on this EVGA gtx 460 external exhaust edition? And if so, can i expect lower temps again? Please advise on what i can do to this card! I dont want to over heat it or anything like that. Clocks are currently 875/1750/2000 55% fan speed.

I read something somewhere about high flow exhaust brackets? They can lower temps down another 5 degrees or something?

Cheers all
Nemmy

I have mine on 890 on the core with the voltage maxxed out and 2000 on the RAM on the exact same card on my open test bench and umm...haha i WISH i could get those temps in crysis on the stock fan profile it kicks to 100% cause i hit 95-97* C on crysis but in games like BC2 i get maybe 80*

and as far as the high flow brackets could be true. the stock one gets really hot if i touch it after a few hrs of crysis

EDIT: you can not use the TwinFrozer cooler on your EVGA card. The reason being thatyour EVGA card is a reference design PCB from Nvidia. and the MSI is a custom PCB made by them. some stuff is moved around and they dont line up correctly. some holes are different as well

wow.. 95 degrees? perhaps i got one of those good cards? The hottest i saw this thing get, without my err.. modification, was like 70-75. Im sure if i remove the bracket, and change the TIM to something better, can drop temps another 5 degrees? But yes. some cards just run hot i guess..

well its crysis....not GTA lol and you can chage the TIM and add the VRAM heatsinks that EVGA sells to up the clocks a little bit and maintain stability
