GTX 560 Ti 448 core OC Club - Page 222

post #2211 of 2759
Antec 620s are preferred to Corsair H60s for the mod in just about every way conceivable. I really dislike the cooling of the FTW card because first it's inadequate (IMO) for air cooling the card, and second you can't easily do the mod because the stock unisink cooling the VRAM and VRMs must be removed to cool the GPU core in any other way than the stock heatsink. If you do the mod then you must get some heatsinks for the VRMs of this card, and I would recommend the 620 over the H60.

Come to think of it, I have been seeing the 620s used more.

Yep, shape and size of the pump.block is better, tubes are longer and more flexible, the mount Dwood makes for the 620 is more flexible and better IMO than his H60 mount (mainly due to the size of the H60 pump rather than anything of Dwood's fault), and the 620 is usually cheaper as well.

I don't have much faith in thermal pads. It's nice when IHV's implement some type of cooling for the memory chips and power management of the cards they make, but performance of thermal pads has always been rather questionable.

My Gigabyte GTX560Ti 448 (with the WindForce cooler) overclock is fairly good, 890mhz 1.025v and 920mhz with about 1.050v, i think it is ok.
But the problem is:

1: when i run the fan speed over 60% it sounds like something is scratching.
2: i have coil whine which get worse with higher gpu voltage, over 1.050 it becomes unbearable.
3: the card itself fells really cheap, cheap plastic fans, a really ugly blue PCB, and the cooler retains all the hot air into the chassi.

1: the plus: overclocks reasonably good.

The card eVGA sent me as an rma had scratches all over it, like they store them stacked on top of each other or something.

Haha yea. I think I have one of the highest OC on air so far in this thread. 970mhz with 1.14(something)v. Stable.

But I don't want my card blowing up also. Running 1.0v/732mhz for 24/7 with a lesser aggressive fan settings.

  • Classified Cooler [36C Idle] [68C Load (benchmarking)] [58% Fan]
  • AXP II [28C Idle] [56C Load (benchmarking)] [46% Fan]
The part I'm most happy about is the fan noise on the AXP II under load (46% fan) sounds as the Classified on idle (33%fan). With the Classified I can definitely notice the fan at 55%. That was a sore spot for me with this card, the fan was loud and the shroud seemed pretty flimsy.
There were no modifications needed - the cooler just fits perfectly (takes 3 slots). I saw somewhere that wasn't the case with vanilla 448's but the fins can be removed easily with nose pliers if there's any obstruction. There's a new AXP III coming out but I thought this was a better deal at $60 over the $120 new version.

Can you post some pics? I have sli and can only use two slots. This will fit only 2 slots if you cut some fins? Either going this way or antec 620.

My card could do over 1GHZ on air with stock cooling but with water it is much more cooler and stable at up to 1.1GHZ with 1.213v.
