4890 Accellero Pro Heatsink Issue

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
EDIT: No one replied so I just went ahead and did it. Now the question I have is regarding the heatsinks. I used the ones that came with the twin turbo pro, but the backplate doesn't allow enough room for them to fit vertically, so I have had to place some of them horizontally, and in contact with the backplate. Is that going to fry my VRAM, or should I be okay?

here's a shopped Pic for the visual folks (the black lines are where I placed the silver heatsinks)

If I've done something dumb I guess I can just order some copper heatsinks, or forget using the backplate all together?

Hi All,

I bought a friend a 4890 on BF, but to my surprise the fan emits a loud rattling noise at low speeds, and is just too darn loud at anything over %34.

So, I bought him the Accelero TWIN TURBO Pro and intend to do this mod too make up for the crappy heatsinks included with the accelero.

So the end configuration is: the base heatsink with a 4890 on top of it (see the link for pics).

It's after the fact, but is that doable? Any advice?

As long as they make full contact with the VRMs, I'm sure you'll be fine. Good luck! thumb.gif

Well, after a long ordeal of reseating the &*(#)* card like 7 times, I decided to just forget the backplate and go with the included heatsinks. I played BF3 for ~30 minutes and then did 15 minutes of Afterburner and It seemed to max out at 53C, so everything seems good. Hopefully the heatsinks don't fall off in the meanatime .

Thanks for the encouragement Jetpak! +rep for making me feel good about myself, and being the only one willing to post : )

Glad I could be of some help! smile.gif

Just a question though, what was the point of putting that plate in there? I suppose it covers and helps dissipate heat off the memory chips?

You'll be fine without any cooling on them, but just keep the oc lower on the memory to keep them from cooking too much! redface.gif

And +rep back at you for keeping up with the posting and reporting back your results for the community! thumb.gif
