GTX 480 SLI + Antec 620's Mod - Page 32

post #311 of 348
lol, thats awsome. I like the little green dude, glad he approves although he does look alittle skeptial...perhaps its because he is green with envy as he is not as "cool" biggrin.gif
post #312 of 348
well it only took me long enough to get this done and honestly...it was another "MOD" well worth it! temps under load in BF3 are 55c-57c, so about a 2c-3c difference from before. This was in Caspian Border with crap flying around everywhere!

cravinmild - in case you're wondering about my little green dude, he's a vinylmation character based off of mickey mouse. there's a website, vinylmation.com, that sells all different kinds, from star wars, to disney characters, tron legacy and even ones that you can make yourself. i guess i'm just a big kid on the inside! biggrin.gif

Just an update...

I have yet to see my mod hit 70. I know this isn't as good as the group average, but I have an unusual setup. Also, I can't seem to get the stock Antec fans to run any faster then the lowest point (~1400 rpms). Need to replace my spark plugs as the truck ain't running right now XD

I've seen some decent Antec fans w/ 3 speed controller at best buy for about the same price as Newegg. I'll have to pick some up once I have transportation and repost some benchmarks with better fans.

Ive used a few of the those 3speed fans and they arnt so bad. When you need the rpm you have them for benchmarking and for silence the low setting works very well. Nice if you dont have a fan controller. Only thing i could gripe about perhaps the intensity of the led light on them is blindingly bright but still pretty

I'll agree with Cravinmild, they are great fans. I got one of the non-LED ones with one of my old Antec cases, (NSK4850B), and it worked for many applications beyond that case. The final drive on it was using it as a Temp laptop cooler hooked to a Jumped PSU for my brother. Woke up one day to the smell of burning electronics. My brothers laptop had fallen off the books into the fan. Took the laptop off the fan, and it spun right up with only 2 blades left on it!!!!applaud.gif This is after 7 years of mostly constant use! You can't kill em.

I just ordered two Antec 620s. I can't wait to try this out. Seems like the perfect solution. Great cooling for the gpu and still maintaining the stock heatsink on the vrms and memory.

I'm looking forward to seeing those uber-coolers on your 480's. That's got to be the perfect solution for cooling the cards in the FT-02.

Very clever... Considering doing this with my 260s.

I actually have an old mcr320 lying around here somewhere and was thinking of maybe cutting the tubes on the 620 coolers near(ish) to the pumps, then with a Y-splitter, connecting them in parallel and finally hooking them up to the mcr320 and resevoir/T-line...

Either that or maybe get a new GPU first and then do this biggrin.gif

I did this exact mod with my 570 GTX's. I used 2 Antec Tricool fans in push pull config for each radiator. Temperatures are amazing. Running Furmark on SLI mode will max out the cards at 45C. Absolutely amazing idea, OP. It was fairly easy to do too. A few zip ties, a place to mount the radiator and a few hours of elbow grease and the results are beyond my expectation. Now I can do the same mod for the next gen card while reusing the same Antec Kuhler.
