My modified Corsair H50 for AMD HD 6970! - Page 3

post #21 of 33
since they were all spare parts, awesome job. i'ld like to see it done with a universal block now. the idea of leaving the shroud intact and the fan functional while watercooling the chip is genius

Agreed, interesting approach to cooling the rest of the chip while using a universal block.

Getting a lot more attention than I thought this thread would lol... Thanks everybody!

Thanks! I had originally planned to use a Corsair H60 since it is such a better cooler, and also it was JUST low profile enough that I could have gotten away with simply taking a heat gun to the upper shroud and mold it around the block, not disturbing the wind tunnel effect much at all. Problem is the block itself comes RIGHT to the edges of the mounting holes, so there was no room for me to make a custom bracket and if I had turned the block sideways I wouldn't have cleared the vram chips or the pcie slot! I think I can do the same with a low profile universal block and just patch the hole I cut out of the stock cover (or buy a new one on ebay or something!).

Me too! I'm hoping for similar to stock cooler on 75% fan speed or higher - I think this should be attainable based on what this cooler did on my 4ghz+ overclocked 955t BE and based on that iirc a 6970 runs around 200watts or so (pretty close to an overclocked cpu I figure).

lol yeah but what can you do, it's gonna happen everywhere


Hopefully I'll get some temp numbers tonight - we'll see though since I have a couple other irons in the fire right now project wise (HTPC, 600t case mods, putting a new electric winch, tool box, and wiring on my car trailer...new doors to my theater room...etc! lol).

Totally curious about the temps now . Ignore the trolls . Nice job, and good for you for tinkering and experimenting
post #27 of 33
Nice job you did there. Hey, if you have the stuff laying around--make use of it somehow! Work with what you got....

Very nice job.

A +Rep for you, sir.

Edit: Found this especially interesting:

I'm always in Harbor Freight Tools and will definitely be checking those out. I have a few heater cores I was thinking of experimenting with and may grab one of those pumps to play around with.

Thanks for the encouraging words dude - I love making use of stuff that I otherwise wouldn't have used anymore, more so than I care about recycling everything, I guess...but of course the more money and use I get out of something the better HF is AWESOME btw!!! I paid for their "inside track club" card, and the coupons you get every month, weekly, and special sales are insane - sometimes I'll save a few hundred bucks with how much stuff I buy from there. That pump is normally $12 I think???

Hmm, I'll have ask about that. I always get a ton of mailers and stuff from HF. I'll be going down there sometime this weekend maybe to bag a dremel tool so I can clean up the ugly cable holes I cut into my case with my jigsaw.

Keep at it.

fantastic job, loves it. I did the same thing to my 580 using a H70 modded to the chip, pretty much exactly what youve done. They work awsome btw, woke up this morning and turned the pc on, i was blessed with 20c on the gpu and it has a factory oc to 816core.

Im going to +rep you for a job well done.
