Arctic Cooling Twin Turbo 2 fits on GTX570 HD (confirmed)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
The cooler only cost me $40 and there was one report of this cooler being able to fit on HD gtx 570s. I'd like to be one of those success reports.

Place where I bought the cooler from

Sorry for the blurry pics. I'm not that great at taking them.

This is the POS card I bought.


Take off the fan and shroud.


Now off with the cooler and what do I find? That the gpu is being cooled by 3 heatpipes! Seriously EVGA? That's not it. There is also a lack of cooling on the memory, vrms etc.


That's okay because Arctic Cooling provides you with lots of these.


Now you have to mix the 2 compounds they provide you with for 5 min.


Then apply the compound within 15 min after mixing.


Let that beezy cure for a few hours. The instructions say 5, and that's what I went with.

Now the instructions want you take off this mounting bracket and mount it onto the video card. Don't do it because you can't mount this cooler the way AC wants you to. This particular non-ref GTX 570 isn't officially supported and the holes don't match up quite right. Instead place the sticky washers on the 4 outer most holes on the bracket and stick the black plastic washers onto those sticky washers. I said washers a lot. WARNING - blurry pic.

One thing to note, the base on the AC cooler is smaller than the gpu, so use less TIM than usual.

Will be back in a few hours after the paste on the vrm and memory heatsinks cure. Here's a bonus for the wait. This is a fan that blew air onto the video card, held up by 4 paper clips...


And I'm back. 3 hours after letting the memory and vrm heatsinks cure I've installed the cooler.



In 2 hours I get to install it and will post temperatures.

Back! So, I've run into some issues but have worked around them. First of all this is a 4 slot cooler. Secondly, it's so big that those who have a motherboard consisting of sata ports that point up might have issues fitting this in there. I had to unplug on of my hard drives. It's ok it was an empty hard drive that I don't need.

Thirdly, the pci bracket won't secure the card to it without the stock cooler's shroud. See the shroud had a screw hole that worked with the pci bracket. A pic I think will better illustrate what I mean.


And in this picture I show you that I used a bag tie to secure the card onto the bracket.

holy cow that is so dusty!

But all is well now. It fits. Afterburner can adjust the fan speed, which btw the fans are absolutely quite at 100%. I hear the whoosh of my case fans over them. Temperatures are 75c with the new cooler loaded with Crysis and with the case fans on their lowest speeds. The stock would bring it to 86c.

Also sorry if the format of this "tutorial" isn't perfect. English is not my first language but I'd like to think I should be over that obstacle already.

Try a bigger screwdriver. Picts would really help. If the screws are exposed some you can try a pair of needle nose pliers.
Worse than crack.

Ok I got the GTX 570 today and the TT2 cooler. I put it on and it does fit. I have no idea what I was doing last time. Anyway I used no memory sinks on the memory. I don' really think it needs it. I did use heatsinks on the VRMs though, but not the ones that came with the TT2. I didn't want to cut the heatsink from the stock cooler. Right now its set to auto fan speed and my card is idling at about 38 that is after playing BC2 for about 5 minutes. Fan speed is at 38% idle while set to auto. At load or after playing BC2 for 5 minutes it was at 48. The only downside is while gaming this card has that dam capacitor squeal, buzzing. But this is only if I put my ear to the backside of my case. From the front I don't hear it. The last GTX 570HD I had did not do this. Well see how it goes. I'll be playing BC2 tonight for at least 2 hours so that will be a good break in so to speak. Still wondering if you really need heatsinks on the VRMS as well...Also I used the white stand off's for mine not the black ones. Their is a thread over at evga that talks about this as well with pictures.
