The EVGA GTX570's High Flow brackets, do they come with them stock now ? Any gtx570 owners EVGA?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I have a pair of the Superclocked EVGA GTX570's:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130595

but the top card was getting around 89 in game sometimes max so I bought the high flow brackets:
http://www.evga.com/products/moreInfo.asp?pn=M020-00-000171&family=Accessories%20-%20Hardware

I got them today and I was so angry because i looked at the new brackets that came in the mail and then the brackets on the GTX570 and they look EXACTLY the same! Do they ship with the High flow brackets now or something? I know I read posts where the old ones did not have them.

It sucks I made that mistake can anyone verify??

Yikes. How are you getting that hot??

May be time to crank those fans up another 10% or so.

All the recent 5xx as far as I know have the high flow on super clocks and up.

That is not an unreasonable temperature for the top card in SLI, I wouldn't worry about it.

A high flow bracket improves about 1C (at most) over a 'traditional' bracket and so this action alone will not help much of the 89C load temp.

 

Your GTX570s have traditional cooling design and so they should benefit much from the RV01's unique bottom up cooling.  This is good.

 

Additionally, there is one empty slot space between the two cards (assuming the cards are in PCIE1 and PCIE4 slots) and that is a good breathing space. This is also good.

 

I have 2 suggestions:-

1) Provide active cooling at the exhaust end of the cards

 

a)  Cut away all the 'panes' of the dual slot bracket to maximize airflow.

Or, use a single slot bracket (eg http://www.evga.com/products/moreInfo.asp?pn=M020-00-000161&family=Accessories%20-%20Hardware)

 

b)  Install a 92/120mm extract fan outside of the brackets. This fan will facilitate hot air exhaust of both cards.

See pic below for an example. This active cooling, coupled with the above step, has the potential to reduce temp by 5-6C, I estimate.

2)  Connect your monitor to the bottom card, changing it from slave to master

Usually the card with the monitor attached is the master card of a SLI configuration.  A master does a little work more and so it is a little bit hotter, perhaps 1-2C. 

So, let the bottom cooler card does this duty of being the master.   The top card will be a little cooler as a result.

 

These 2 actions have the potential to cut down the temp of the top card by 7-8C.

Yeah, I know the temps aren't Outrageous, since the max temp for the GTX570 is 97c, but I wonder if the constant heat will degrade them.....

and I guess I had high expecations with my case and cooling fans... mad.gif

See, my motherboad instructs me that I plug into PCI express 1 slot (master card) or I get "no signal" on monitor.

AND, I hate the idea of modding my cases. I mean, I spent 230$ on this raven case, bought aftermarket good fans (AP181's + scythe gentle typhoon) , spent hours on my cable management, have a good noctura nH-D14 cooler etc...

so it ticks me off that my temps are not ideal. I know, I'm not watercooling so I shouldn't be expecting water cooling temps, but jeez, 75's would be or maybe 79-80 max would be OK for me.

I hate the idea of cutting and modding my cases that I already spent alot of money on (relative). Weird and stupid I know....

I just read your thread in the Cooling Forum.

 

Go there and read my post #5:- http://www.overclock.net/t/1192902/my-temps-get-better-when-side-panels-of-case-are-taken-off-silverstone-raven-01-grrr#post_16074641

Are you using a cusom fan profile in afterburner?

I have 2 SC 570's (rear exhaust versions). My top card used to hit 85 but after setting a fan profile it now never goes over 76. I didn't even have to raise the rpm by much so its still reasonably quiet.
