GTX 560 Ti 448 core OC Club - Page 72

post #711 of 2759
Alright, looking into wc for this. Hopefully, will be able to get a good deal on a gtx 480 water block by DD. Reviews are good. I cannot afford another rad right now. I am going to try this as my loop......

Pump/Res --> rad --> cpu --> gpu --> pump/res. I have read somewhere before this should be okay.

I am thinking this will be okay because CPU will always get cooler water first, CPU will be running at lower freq while gaming so the water should not be heated too badly when it gets to the GPU. Looks like the water temp will actually get to an equilibrium.

This will be temporary until I get another rad and some fans, but it should be okay for now, even if I have to lower CPU OC a little. Any ideas?

Also, anyone know ig I can use arctic silver instead of the white stuff that comes with the danger den block? It also shows that I need thermal pads. I can use thermal paste in place of pads/tape, right?

Not sure if this is off topic or not. Technically, I am talking about water cooling the GPU mainly.....

Got a GTX 480 Danger Den all copper water block used for 40.00 bucks off a guy in this forum. Hopefully it arrives functioning.....biggrin.gif

Hi Guys,

I just bought an EVGA 560 Ti 448 Classified. I'm concerned about my default temperatures. I can easily hit 77-80c (10-15 minutes of playing) on BF3 using Ultra graphic settings. I can also easily hit 82c and believe I hit 85c on Trine2 (just 5-10 minutes of playing) using all the highest settings. I'm have a 1680x1050 monitor. Case is the Corsair 600T (should be good enough). No wires or other cards are in the way. If I take my side panel off it will drop but still around 74c under load. My idle seems okay at around 40c.
Now, are these temperatures (79c-82c) very high for the EVGA Classified card? This is without adjusting fans or anything... just the default EVGA 560 Classified and drivers.

Ultimately the question is with temps this high under load, do I still have room to overclock this card?

Thanks for sharing your insight regarding this.

Still have a few things left to pick up before I can put the whole build together.
Hopefully another week or two and I will finally have everything up and running but I will post once that is done.

Hmm, I get that high temps in sli on the top card oc'ed pretty high. Have you tried adjusting the fan. Use MSI Afterburner and create your own fan profile. You can have is ramp up at certain temps. For me since it's hot in my room and I run 2 of them, I start at 50*C at 60% fan speed to 75*C at 100% fan speed. It's a straight line so it ramps up nicely. But that is with my room being 80*F+. If that does not bring temps down check to see that both fans are spinning. If all else falls you can RMA if you think something is wrong. But remember that the avg max within safe limits is around 90-95*+.
