GTX 480 SLI + Antec 620's Mod

post #1 of 348
Thread Starter 
I was inspired by cravinmild here on OCN to use a traditional CPU cooler on a GPU. http://www.overclock.net/nvidia-cooling/1086286-complete-build-log-zotac-560ti-corsair.html

So I decided to stuff two Antec 620's into my EVO case to cool my reference ZOTAC GTX 480's. It wasn't easy....but props to cravinmild for his help!

I wasn't able to get complete photos throughout the mod, But i did have a chance to take some today.

UPDATE: See here for IHS removal

First off the only thing removed is four screws that hold on the heatsink on the GTX 480 as shown here: http://www.legitreviews.com/article/1258/3/

Then mount the cooler with zip ties

Now there is no way the Rad is going to reach the front of the case so I had to stack 2 fans in series + and shroud to give me space.

Both cards stuffed into the case

The Rads had to me rotated to fit

Mounted and secured

Done!

Have to say that it makes a huge difference not listening to the fans on these cards. I now have a virtually silent rig. smile.gif

Latest set of benchies after I removed the IHS and strapped straight to the GPU Die!

******UPDATED******

Successful 900/1800/2200 Overclock with a couple a cheap $59 Antec 620's with temps topped out at 49c and the VRM Temps via fans sensor at 47c thumb.gif

Yep, I noticed that to. Top one peaked at 79, bottom at 73. I did have them dialed in within 1c of each other but took the top one out to take the pictures of the mod. I have to try to reseat again and or possible tube crimping that is causing it.

It was with a modest overclock of 825/1650/2100 as well.

Best part was....no fan noise!

Thanks, yeah I decided to do both after getting a second card from a chap here on OCN. $225 for a second card, same model as my first. Microcenter had the 620's on sale for $59 each.

The stock fan is still connected and working to cool the VRM's. They also act as good alarms in case something happens with the 620's. At 100% rpms those things are like sirens. lol

I wish there was more room between the cards because in the process of bending the tube at the base, i popped off a screw head that is on the side of the assembly. frown.gif
