okay.. okay. back to what im trying to say.. its very clever to use a hydro series on those premium non ref cards! as one of the posts here said, you guys have really some guts to pull something like this mod! hands down! thumbsupsmiley.png
my question is, can my spare corsair H80 also be use like this for my 2 months GTX 570?? or the water block / Pump is too big for it?
+1 REP Sir!

Well, ive not seen the card and cant say for certain but it would appear, based on all the other successfull attempts that this mod is pretty universal to any gpu using new/older Corsair Hydro coolers and Antac H2O series coolers. williampv was the first that ive seen use the newer Corsair coolers (H60) on his Matix. Ive recently talked with williampv about his mod and seems it has been working very well and has no issues. Seems we have a new member to the club (Extreme2) who has just completed his mod using a H100 with AMAZING results. Extreme2 was done a slight change with the zipstrap mounting that looks nessassary to accomidate the H100 pump design. All that said i would have to say yes it looks like the H80 will work just fine.

Thanks for the rep btw thumb.gif, glad you enjoyed the build log.

I would like to be able to do push and pull. I know some cases mean you cannot do that and have to mod like rage has.

What type of case would i need to be able to do a push pull setup?

A full tower?

The larger the case the easier it is. I will note though, the shorter tubing of the older Hxx series coolers makes it difficult to find places close enough to mount the rad, my Matrix runs in the lowest pcie slot because thats where the closest fan opening that it can reach too. The larger cases will allow for more fan intake/exaust holes BUT that does not mean the tubing will allow for it to strech there. Seems the newer Hxx series coolers have thinner AND longer tubing and also Antac H2O coolers have wonderfull tubing that looks very long. So to answer you question its more about the cooler you use and how much stuff you have alrighty inside your case. You ssd can be pressed against the back mobo tray wall using double sided sticky tape, thats a pretty common setup ive seen in pics, it removes it from the bays but still displays it nicely.


Side note here, my Matrix was idling at 18c the other morning, i was most happy with that.....not so much the wify and kids lol, seems i turned the heat down a touch to much biggrin.gif

@ geovas77 thank you for the +rep and glad you liked my build log. I have been looking at AMD cards for awhile now and cant for the life of me figure out why no one has copied this for that brand of card. Mounting holes are the same and i see no reason not to do an AMD card this way. I did post this log on the AMD Cooling section but it had very little interest so that thread died sortly after starting it.

@ metalhead008, as rage19420 has mentioned it is a very easy mod...almost as easy as breathing lol. There are several peeps who have sli/modded their systems now and mentioned that its a very simple complete. I do agree it looks difficult but its way easier than it looks. Id never even taken a gpu shroud off before doing this. My total experiance in modding before this was some sleeving and changing the stock cpu cooler. I would love to see your two cards modded this way, my 560ti was beating 570 scores and just below stock 580 scores all the while staying under 70c and oc to 1275 core. Im not saying your going to get the same oc but you will see the same cooling and it will be way more quiet.
If you need anything just post a question. Between all the others and myself who have completed this mod youll be up and running in no time. There will never be another stock cooler on any gpu i own EVER AGAIN. This mod is just so incredible. Dont worry about any damage to the cards by cutting or hacking the card, nothing you do will cause you to alter in such a way that it cant be returned to stock......if you should need to RMA a card. Just say you needed to redo the TIM and noone will ever be the wiser wink.gif


The hardest part is starting..... its seems so daunting. I looked into this mod for almost half a year before doing it. I watched all the peeps making custom bracket, glueing, fabricating devices for mounting every type of cpu cooler to their cards you can imagine. I can across a thread i am yet unable to find again where zippy straps were used and i knew right then it was a winner idea. It took me several weeks to get the courage to do it myself and being unable to find the original thread again made it even harder to get started.
Props to rage19420 for starting the sli version of this mod, took alot of guts to do two cards this way with absolutly no idea of results or guarrantee his cards would not explode. Props to all the others who have done their cards also, its still a very exclusive club at this point.
Its only amount of time before a company starts selling some sort of bracket or (fingers crossed) a full custom closed loop system for your gpus. Till then this is the best your going to get without going full watercooling. One thing this mod has going for it is that while it stays a DIY mod it will always be the cheapest method to watercool your gpu.

Great mod. Thinking of doing the same with my evga 570. 1 question though. For your 560ti, I see you have the rad mounted on the bottom of the case. Do you have this as an intake, or exhaust? Was there plenty of clearing under the case to run this as an intake? I have a storm sniper, and currently have a 140mm fan as an intake there. Its a slow rpm, and really, just a extra fan I had laying around so thought I'd throw it in there. I'm not sure its doing any real good as far as cooling the case down any. Seems like a pretty nice place to drop a radiator for doing the mod. As for the ram/vrm, what are you using to cool those? Thanks again, and congrats on the nice mod. +rep

Thanks for the +rep Jyve

Yes the rad at the bottom of the case is for intake, this unintentionaly helped cool the card too. My 560ti had no fans inside the shroud to help cool the pcb there were also no fans blowing at the card save the rad fans blowing upwards. Thoses fans were just inches off the shroud though, im sure it help move are but nothing blow across the pcb directly. I had no issues and the card still works even after given heavy voltage (for this card) @ 1.125v. I had not played with any memory oc and only oc the core which was being cooled by the H70. Perhaps things would have been different if i had of tried to oc the mem without cooling to that part of the card IDK.
The feet on the bottom of the HAF 932 raise the case and give about two inches clearence. My PSU fan also sucks fresh air in from the bottom of the case, is see to ill effects. For me that was the only place the H70 waterlines would reach. The waterlines are shorter and stiffer than those on the newer Hxx series coolers and 620 coolers.

Air flow for me is as follows

PSU-bottom intake rear exaust 1x120mm
H70-bottom intake/case exaust 2x120mm

Case intake- 1x230mm front case + 2x120mm front drivebay (mod)

Case exaust- 1x140mm on rear of case
H100 4x120mm (Ultra kaze 38mm thick fans) takes case air and exausts out the top of the case

Other fans- 1x60mm on system ram/ 2x 90mm on gpu

Total fans spinning - 14 fans or about 1000+ cfm of air movement biggrin.gif

So you had no extra sinks or anything on the vrm or ram chips on the card? I think I saw what looks like some kind of heat plate covering where the ram chips would be on the 560.
Curious if the 570 has something similar. I don't overclock the memory on my card either, figure there really isn't any gain to be had in it. Simply looking at an inexpensive way to cool
the core and keep the noise down. I'm looking at the kuhler 620 for this. Think your haf might have a bit more room under the case than my sniper. My psu also draws air in from the bottom,
and if I had to guess there's maybe an inch or so of clearance between the bottom of the case and desk it sits on. Thanks for taking the time out to answer some questions!
