Would trying it void galaxys warranty? Also when you did it what were your temps?

Gonna sell my 480 and get another 620 for my GTX 670 tongue.gif

By the time the 2000 loses its initial bite, you'll be able to achieve a nice polish with the paper.

Hey no secrets here! tongue.gif Thanks, yeah.. I'm not lapping the Lightning Xtremes, however I can get what I need cheap and more or less have a lapping kit on standby and get some practice, even if it doesn't inprove the cooling alot.

With newegg having 20% off all fans, any suggestions on what I should replace the stock Kuhler 620 fans with or add to make it a push pull? thanks.

Not going to do 'The Mod' to this card. I dont think its worth it. Sure the idle temps and load temps are higher but its silent enough as stock and the direct cu cooler on this thing looks sexy!

Actually maybe the mod is a good idea. The 670 seems to throttle back down on the core clock when it reaches 70c. If the mod kept it below 70c which im sure it would, you could overclock it enormously!

I will have to see how it goes. Dont fancy taking a £360 graphics card apart the same day as buying it lol My Asus card does 1267mhz core as standard out of the box but i could push it to 1300mhz+ as long as temps stay below 70c

Man that is a good looking card! I modded my 680 the day I got it and I don't regret it.

Do you know if your bracket works with the GTX 670 yet? If so, will the fan actually be of use cooling the board / VRM's? Im not sure where they are on my card! I still have your bracket in a box i just took off my GTX 580.
