This is great, im going to do this on my first 8800 Ultra, it always seemed to run hotter no matter what. When you place the ihs back on the chip does the thermal glue still have left over grip to it?

No, I'll add this to a master questions list at the bottom of the thread to detail what people have been asking. I mentioned the 'glue' or the black stuff around the chip is concrete in nature. Seriously, when you pull the IHS off, that stuff is like ultra hard, you'll see what I mean. It basically is the same texture as my 400grit sand paper... and you need a razor to scrape the stuff off...so be super careful.

I ran the OCCT tests again lastnight. 51C top temp for Vsync and 72C for max 100% usage test. We'll see what MX-2 brings today

Sorry again Cakewalk ill start to pm BinaryDemon after this response...biggrin.gif

Yeah sorry Cakewalk. I just did a check, disabled my OC profile and completely shutdown. MSI Afterburner reads the 'stock' voltage as 1.138. Maybe because this card is already factory overclocked to 847mhz? I have seen alot of different advice with the gtx580, hopefully I'm not being too aggressive.

OMG OMG, this is tremendous! +rep for sure!

I've always asked on forums if i should lap/re-seat my GPU's and i've always been told 'DON'T DO IT' and 'IT'S CRAZY' Now i can point them to this thread and say 'HA', not so crazy now!

I am soooooo tempted to try this out when i get my second 560 ti 2gb. I'm gonna be modding the coolers with new fans and re-seating anyway (crappy Palit fans/heatsink:() - and with such a great guide to help me - i don't think i'll be able to stop myslef:) Should definitely help as i'll be running my SLI in sandwich formation - i'll take every degree i can get!

I don't suppose anyone knows if 560 and 560 ti are the same chip? But until anyone tells me otherwise i'm just gonna assume they're the same and give it a go anyway:), wanted to do something like this for a long time now - despite everyone telling me it's an insane idea!

I have just one question - at what stage would you use the Steel Wool?

And thanks for making my day:)

560 and 560TI is the exact same chip, just different cores are enabled on it.

Technically you could do this with any 5 series chip. However, I don't know what the glue looks like that holds the IHS down on other chips or older ones. I only know mine. Just bare in mind the fact that you have to be so uber careful, if you decide to pull off the IHS, if you knock the razor blade inbetween the IHS and silicon too far, you'll hit a resistor and kill your card. The razor blade only needs to be in just far enough so that u can pull up on the razorblade to separate the two pieces apart.

Good luck!

Thanks man! I'll obviously try to be as delicate as possible. And Palit being Palit - i can only imagine they used the cheapest glue on the market so i don't think i'll have to worry about that - we'll see!

Maybe i'll even post a few pics (will probably start on Saturday) and compare notes.

Cheers:)

Yea, no idea. Its Nvidia that attaches the IHS to the chip so they all should be very similar in the way they're attached.

Lyster,

You are mentioning the 560 and the 560ti, the are the same chip but one has been retarded somewhat. They can't be sli though.....they won't work because of those changes.

I'm not talking about going SLI with 560 and 560ti - i know that won't work:p LOL!

Was just asking if the hardware layout was the same and if this mod could be done in the same way!

Cheers:D
