GTX 560 Ti 448 core OC Club - Page 274

post #2731 of 2759
The FTW version is different from the classy version. Not only is mine longer, but it has the power connectors on the top, not the side.

Yep, I know it's different. I just thought you might want to see what nice designs EVGA can come up with for cooling, even though it won't help your situation at all.

It's really nice that it gets the same performance as the classified versions but a really shorter form factor, so it will fit in a lot more computer cases.

So i went ahead and did it. i replaced the stock 560 ti Classy heatsink and fan with a 480 assembly. How are temps and performance?
Well come check it out!

My limitation was not the performance of the GPUs. The limitation I upgraded to fix was that the 5xx series can only drive two monitors per card, unless you're running spanned mode.
While I had three 560ti 448's, I was only actually running 2 card SLI most of the time, and using the third card to drive my third and fourth displays.

Also, I moved apartments, and the new apartment's electrical is not as good as my old apartment, so I needed to reduce my power consumption. Old grandfathered tin wiring is no thanks. frown.gif

Basically I got a little better performance while also reducing my power consumption by about 30%.

Nice work! I contemplated doing this before I decided to unisink mine! Glad to hear it works so well! And yeah, the original heatsink was a really poor design decision on EVGA's part. Especially considering this is supposed to be a 'classified' part.

I think the 560ti-448 'classified' by EVGA has a perfectly fine cooler on it from the looks of it, it's just designed to be operated in a large, well-ventilated chassis, instead of crammed in to a compact small one like Slobergoof was doing with all the components so close together.

Considering this is considered to be a 'high end' card, coming factory overclocked from EVGA the performance is somewhere in between the gtx-570 and the gtx-580, and being overclocked like is all of em are supposed to typically be in large cases with excessively well airflow.

I don't think they're ever designed to be in small compact cases for any reason, even if the card physically fits.

Do you think I would maintain decent temps if I ram my card like this with no shroud? I took the shroud off to clean and re-paste and I dig the way it looks. My card will be being used in an open air application similar to a test bench.

I think you should re-apply the shroud, the fan doesn't distribute air correctly without it. It's designed to use it, either in a test bench or a computer.

Just wondered if anyone had done it. I've been out of town for a week and I'm soo ready to get back on some PC games. thumb.gif
post #2739 of 2759
I haven't actually used it without the shroud. I have been looking for a backplate for my card. The only one I could find was from coldzero.eu. The most basic one would cost almost $40 after shipping to Houston, TX. Does anyone know of another seller that still carries backplates for this card?

Don't everyone answer at once, please..
