Quick question about the Twin Frozr II

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Is it possible to remove the aluminum shroud from the "Twin Frozr II" cooler and would it affect temps in any way?

No, you should be find. Twin Frozr rely mostly on their vapour chamber to dissipate heat.

Which shroud are you thinking off, though?

I just got the MSI GTX 580 but had the 5870. I think that it would affect the cooling because it would not allow the air to flow through the fins on the heatsink properly. Unless you had unbelievable air flow in the case. Personally I would not take it off.

Well, as long as its possible to remove it without damaging something. Im building a mini-itx case and since its so small the GPU will pretty much touch the sidepanel so I was thinking maybe I could use the sidepanel as a shroud/cover if you know what I mean. Guess i'll just have to experiment when I get the card
