Could we get a link to the Heatspreader guide on the OP? You've got a column for IHS removed but no guide... I think it might be a good idea just to throw up the link on the top.

Especially since we're talking about reducing temps, you should add idle and load temps on the spreadsheet so people have an idea of what they should expect when they do the mod.

Yes i was actually intending to add that here shortly. I was going to message you to ask permission to cross post your entries and pics as a guide (with proper credit of course). Sound good?

You've managed to keep the original card apperance with that ingenious cutting for the pump and then to clean it up with the wrap around the outside edge...... a wonderful addiontion to the mod. I can see this method being used by many to keep the shroud intact and giving the mod as a whole that "polished" look. I would do this if i needed to also. Thank you for adding the wonderful pics, they will help many im sure thumb.gif
Welcome to the club

thanks! I finally got my 470s in my case last night. ran furmark and my max temp was 50c! stock cooling i was hitting 95+. had a problem mounting though. so if you do this consider the length of the tubes. they measure 13" but def. wont mount easily in the front of the mid tower.unless you got a spacer of some sort.

Rage has mentioned this before, he used several fans in series to acomplish that.

Your before and after temps are amazing to say the least, what is your opinion on the reduced sound. People are so shocked with the temp decreases they forget that the mod was also about reducing the noise that the screaming full load gpu will create.

wouldn't it be ironic if you could tie game sounds with your GPU fan speed? haha....hop in a jet in BF3 and your GPU dictates the noise of the jet... I'd be scared to hear chopper noise coming from a card...haha pop pop pop pop pop...lol

After replacing 1 of my Asus Direct CU II fans with a 92mm case fan...which runs at 100% which is quiet, I don't need anything past 40% on the other card fan speed. So basically my GPU is nearly silent. And now using water cooling with my CPU my case is happily quiet and cool..
