Thermalright Shaman + EVGA GTX 570 HD + Gentle Typhoon?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
As in the title guys, does the shaman fit on the 570 HD? If it does I'll be ordering the above three.

You me and some other guys are wondering the exact same thing :-) I think someone sent an email to thermalright asking that very question, we are still waiting on an answer..

Same here, and EVGA.

Thermalright states that the Shaman is designed to fit reference boards including the GTX570. However, as the EVGA GTX570 HD is non reference, the chance of compatibility is not high. The main obstacle is that the GTX570 HD has a DVI output on the 2nd PCI slot (red circle in pic 1) which will come into physical conflict with the heatpipes of the Shaman, according to my estimate.

While waiting for an official reply from either EVGA or Thermalright, let me use scale drawings and dimensions taken their spec:-
1. Pic 1 shows the GTX570 HD
-Its length is 229mm which is shorter than the reference card's 267mm
-the distance between the left row of screw holes to the pci slot plate is 65mm
-the disance between the left row of screw holes to the edge of the DVI output is 43mm

2. Pic 2 shows the Shaman
-the distance between the left row of screw holes to the edge of the heatpipes is 61mm

As 61mm is > 43mm, the heatpipes will clash with the DVI output and will not fit in.

While there is always a chance that my calculation is off, better wait for an official reply. But just keep the expectation low in the meantime.

Could you mount the Shaman with the heatpipes facing towards the rear of the card? Or in any other direction?

I suppose I'll have to improvise now as I've paid for both the card, and the cooler.

If I can't get it to work, I'll sell the card and the cooler, and just get a 560Ti and and an X-Fi Titanium.

First, I just discover that I have made a mistake in my calculation above. I have mixed up the mounting holes of the graphics card with the four screws on base of Shaman. See pic 1 below.

What this means is: as the distance between the mounting holes and the screws of the Shaman base is about 15mm, the Shaman heatpipes extend about 61-15 = 46mm. But this is still longer than the clearance of 43mm available.
However, the difference is now only 3mm, which is potentially within the margin of error of my calculation. This is the best that I can do for you.
As you have already ordered, you just have to wait until they arrive and see if you can fit it in.

As to your 2nd question of mounting the Shaman 180 degrees around, I do not think this orientation will work as well. See pic 2 below. It shows the other end is even longer (72mm > 61mm).

I could mount it the other way and bend the pipes up to give some clearance from the DVI ports (being careful of course)

When mounting it the other way, the Shaman's depth of 140mm will now point toward the motherboard (vs pointing away from the mobo) and this will not work as this dimension is larger than the height of a graphics card.

@windfire
But you could remove the dvi casing?
Thus basically removing the problem?
afaik, inside of that casing is just a small dvi port, just wasted space inside there.
A different card here, but the dvi ports still are same on every card out there afaik

You need not purchase a Gentle Typhoon fan for the Shaman, the included TY-140 will perform much better on this cooler.

According to this compatibility image found on Thermalright's website, it is fully compatible with the GTX570.
