Complete Build Log-Zotac 560ti/Corsair H70 - Page 3

Wow, how did I miss this. Cravin, you could technically attach your Water cooler directly to the chip, just totally get rid of the heat spreader... Lap the copper on your cooler and then try to attach it right to the chip. As long as your confident its not gonna leak you should be ok. lol. That should provide you the absolute best results possible!

I'd give that a try if I were you!

I'd wait until the end of warranty if I were you!

Fixed. biggrin.gif

Plus consider that removing the heatspreader is very risky...

But of course it would be interesting. biggrin.gif

Your so bad cakewalk, your putting thoughts into my head that best not be there lol.
I never thought about it till now. My concern would be pressure on the chip directly may crush it. I lapped all surfaces including the copper on the h70. Not a glass surface shine but its not far off a mirror reflection. I'm going to look into this now. I made a mistake while hooking up the power wire to the pump. Im on the mobo header and pump is running at 800rpm at times....my bad. Will fix that later today and put it to a molex right off the psu for full power all the time.

I'm pretty sure my warranty as gone when I pryed off the heatspreader so there is no turning back now. I knew this when i grabbed the hammer though. I'll run this for right now and look into having the h70 directly on the chip without the heatspreader.......

Sent from my cell sorry for the spelling lol

I benched the card quickly

pretty happy with temps right now. My max core clock is lower than my last max this time around but that could be due to running the latest drivers and not the "best" drivers.

Just a note here, i rest the HW Monitor and that is why the lows show 36c, it was still dropping at that moment. I sit idle at 25c right now when i look.

Cravin,

I've put a crap load of weight on the chip while pushing down the heat spreader with paste on it. I'd give it a try, attach the H70 directly to the chip with some thermal paste. That will assure you of 100% the best possible temperatures you'll ever get!

Just pray your cooler doesn't leak..lolz

How do you feel running 1.15V? I'm worried about my Vram... Its probably the warmest component on my Gfx card... I'm running 1.050V and I'm a tad worried about it. I can't monitor the temps of the Vram but I've got a new fan on those and its 2x the CFM to it so I'm pretty sure its ok. Should I try 1.087V?

im fine with 1.150v, lol if you notice my benchmark pic i posted above, im running almost 1.3v

In all fairness this Matrix card is one of the best cards on the market and made just for this type of thing, it allows for this overvolting on the card with buttons to click to increase the voltages beyond what is allowed in bios. The card is nonreference and has much work done to it by Asus to insure prolonged use/modding/Dice/LN2/ there are solder points on the card to remove the protections to keep the card safe. Point is the Matrix does not represent a typical 580 card.

While reading threads on 580 volts most like to keep the volts just above 1.000v for 850core, most like to have it under 1.100v for 950-1000 core and not many are comfortable running 24/7 on 1.150, just to do quick benchmarks at those high volts. Watercooling the card changes all that obviously as it can handle the heat volts create but things will wear quicker at hight volts.....perhaps not before the card is expired by just getting old first...who knows.

I do not run the card 24/7 with anything above stock, only do these changes for benchmarking. The card is stock 24/7 other than those times. My stock volts for the factory oc of 816 core is 1.063, other matrix cards do the same clocks at 1.038, each chip is different. When gaming my volts max at 1.188v.
