[Official] NVIDIA GPU Mod Club - AKA "The Mod" - Page 13

post #121 of 8626

Sadly, my GTX460 is not reference design. The shroud is screwed onto a piece of metal that goes through the heatsink. The heatsink is similar design to the newer stock coolers for the AMD Phenom II X6 processors. If I attempt to do this mod to my GTX460, it will be completely naked short the Pump. Love this idea, and I'll keep following progress, but I can't do this mod with my GPU, better to just get a waterblock.

you can but you need to get effective cooling on your VRM mosfets.
My 560ti had a heatplate that conflicted with mounting my h60 flush against the gpu die. I therefore had to completely remove it and now my GPU is completely naked aside from the gpu block and pure copper heatsinks on the VRMs.
It was very successful for me as well as I have hit 1085 core 2250 memory maxing out at 49c and am #1 in the gf114 560ti OC club

Torn between this mod and going full out cooling for my cards. The install doesn't look any more complicated then installing an after market air cooler.

It really is a cost thing. If you have SLI GTX580's it is probably worth it in the long run to do a proper loop, but if you only have 1 card the 620 mod is very effective and cost efficient.

The gap between the die and IHS is probably a margin of error allowance in the production chain. Lapping it so it sits on the die with less TIM is safe and will reduce temp depending on the production error.
I did the 620 to my GTX470, working on getting a log up as I ran into an issue keeping the stock heat spreader, I used the zip tie method, will get my pics in to join the club.

Do you mean you ran into an issue with keeping the heatspreader or that the heatspreader needs to be on there or you need a shim to make contact with the GPU?
I'm guessing the stock unisink was being a pain because it gets in the way, it nearly blocks me from installing an MCW60 with the IHS on. tongue.gif

I dont have any other Expansion cards but one and I will locate that on the bottom PCI slot (Audigy 2 ZS PCI sound card) and that should be plenty of clearance

I am thinking its probably just the same thing. I am not too crazy, I'm not gonna take my IHS off but I will lap my H50, is this something I could consider attempting???
I have read this whole thread, and I understand the risks but I dont have any reason to think that a H50 head is any different shape than the H70, which you guys says work. So has anyone done this, can I get some information before I buy a new CPU cooler and remove my H50 and follow through with this?? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
it will work, the only thing you have to worry about is mounting and clearance.

Yep, I'm glad to hear this but I got one more question, I have a MSI TFIII GTX 570, I know it already has a plate on it to keep things cool, but would it be a good idea to have other heatsinks on it as well or should that plate keep my memory and VRMs cool (especially with the 570 VRM issue) rolleyes.gif

A Kuhler is going to cost you $50 - $60 ish. Use that money and sell the GPU and get the proper GTX460 336 SP version, or just get a GTX470. They can be had under $150 now. Overall better upgrade. thumb.gif

i know i posted this already in the other thread about this, but i thought why not post it in this one too smile.gif

Well i finally jumped in with two feet and decided to try this out. INCREDIBLE results.. i went from 51C idle down to 33C idle and 85load to 44 load!! here are some pics of the mod. i will later post some of it in my case
cleaning the TIM off smile.gif
450
Attaching the zip ties
450
mounting the cooler to the metal block

final product smile.gif450

this is my very first mod/ work log ever so i know it looks scrappy but hey atleast i logged it smile.gif
