Speaking of heat sinks, anyone seen any of the arctic cooling vr004s for the gtx480 for sale anywhere? I haven't had any luck except on their website in which you have to order 10 sets. rolleyes.gif
If not what are you guys with the 480s using to keep everything cool just ram heat sinks?

I always Amazon them...
I see vroo1 vroo2 and vroo3 are available....


My 580 is so disappointing....
1.150v 54C max, can't get past 930MHz core clock... It's stable 920MHz @ 1.138V then I have to bump to 1.150v to get 930MHz. I bet this chip would need like 1.25v to get 1GHz....bummer

I was using an old PSU for awhile and that was giving me <11V sometimes. The worst I saw was something like 10.85V or something nuts on the 12v line when trying to get a high OC. I think my PSU damaged my GPU some so now I can't clock it so high...fail. Oh well. New PSU is back upto about 12.2v so I'm happy.

I love this mod every time I turn my PC on..never having to worry about your GPU temps is quite nice....Kinda the way it should be...

I feel sorry for you mate with your 580. Mine will do 1GHZ core at 1.175v but i do get around 62c load temps even with the mod. My 580 will do 950mhz core on 1.138v

My build is finnished now - Im sad i no longer have anything to buy a mod frown.gif lol My 620 radiator is back at the top, H100 is an intake and i have a coolermaster megaflow intake fan and a few others scattered around. I could change my rear fan for an LED model but thats just to add a little bit of bling!

Managed to push my 2500k to 4.8ghz stable and computer is still really really quiet!

Its quite warm today so my GPU is idling at around 30c but in the evenings it will drop a good 5c

Think my Evga 580 is in the same boat. Needs 1.1v to run at 900mhz. Tried 925 & it failed, even with 1.15v.

The previous owner did have a full cover waterblock on it though before he replaced the stock cooler, so maybe it's the vrms heating up that is causing my lack of headroom.

These are most likely scenarios. Try to use GPU tool, its a strict artifact test. If it is not problematic at first, but after a few minutes when the VRM's start heating up it could be exactly the issue. As the VRM's get hot, their ability to filter the right amounts of power needed decrease. Board manufacturers tend to only use as many VRM's are needed at specified temperatures to run factory speeds.

As is the case with my 470. No artifacts, no crash at 1GHz, Until My VRM's hit *160C.

*Exaggerated, but not far fetched.


IN OTHER NEWS! Geoff at FrozenCPU has explained the adhesive sometimes gets lost in limbo, and a tube is being dispatched to me asap.

I am so excited!

i still havent found a tool that will display my VRM temps!

Tried GPUTool for 5mins...no artifacts. It did reach 70c though but as i said its fairly hot in here today

There isn't one. At least not that I am aware of.

However,

haha thats quality.

When i touch the VRM area of my card is it really hot, mind you at 950mhz core its reaching 65c today frown.gif I'm dissapointed with my overclocked temps.

Why? It's just a meaningless number when it's in the range people are talking about here. You're going to run into a voltage cap before you run into a temp cap, and it's not like your card would OC any better if it were even 10C cooler. Going from 90C to 60C is a big jump that makes a difference, going from 60C to 50C or vice versa won't do anything.

what i mean is my load temps are high for this mod regardless of overclock. Im not looking to push it anymore than 950 / 1000mhz.

Even stock clocks today under load im reaching 54c....is that still good? Overclocked to 950 / 1000 im getting about 68 - 70c! my direct cu used to perform about the same. On a cool day the mod works really well, on warmer days, temps seem to increase quickly and perform only just a tiny bit better than the stock cooler. Obviously the lack of sound makes it worthwhile too.
