You may want to keep your heat plate and just point a fan at it to cool your VRams and power circuits.

Thanks i am drooling with the temps people are getting here... i will be using your suggestion until i can get a hold of a dwood backplate. smile.gif

You could also ghetto mount a fan, or get a mount from Dwood.

I will do the zip thing until i can get a dwood backplate and strap a fan for now... thanks for the suggestion ...

I'd say slap some heat sinks over the spreader, maybe even copper ones then paint the bracket gold! biggrin.gif
The spreader with heat sinks would work better I'd think either way with new thermal pads.

Yeah its a shame i will have to loose the bling bling ... but my card wasn't that great to start with ... also not the best overclocker..
I actually was thinking of selling it and buy a new one but with this mod i can stick with it for a while longer smile.gif

yes, the zippys will work fine till you get Dwoods bracket. Ive had my zippys on my Matrix for over 6 months now and not a single issue, tight as ever. You will love the results.

Sorry forgot to add i run H100 4x off a fan controler and also the H70 off the same fan controler (Scythe Master Pro 6 fan controler). H100 @ 900 rpm 4x p/p and H70 @1200 2x p/p. Motherboard fan headers will work too and you can control the speed if you have high rpm noisey fans, some better low rpm fans may work well off molex to the psu and still be quiet. Fan choise is pretty important to some, i use Ultra kaze 3000 for the H100 and they can be noisey as all hell when running high rmp and the H70 is using the stock H100 fans which are just a step down in the noise departmant to the Ultra kaze. Fan controller is the only thing keeping this thing from floating off the desk.

Personally, I have a push / pull setup on my rad. I use a fan controller as the push fan is a Ultra Kaze 2000 wink.gif

I know i fell in love with this cards from the moment i saw them ... but as i said mine is not the greatest unlocker and hell even overclocking it was a real pain ...

But know with this i can still keep it although i might have to loose the bling for now ..

Wow cravin, you have done a lot of work to get the thread up to speed... thank you thumb.gif

When you guys removed the stock HS, did you have a massive glob of thermal paste? The amount I had on mine was ridiculous- it overflowed and I had to clean the space between the vram HS and the IHS.

My 620 is hooked up directly to the mobo since I don't mind it running at full speed, it is a rather quiet fan. I'm really glad I got the Antec 620 because the tubing is much easier to work with than the Corsair one.

Yes, there was a lot of TIM between my Hs and the GPU IHS. After the mod, there was less wink.gif

I've applied "The MOD" on my 560Ti hawk SLI. temps dropped 20°C (Idle 31 and 35, load 61 and 63 °C). With Antec Kühler 620s.

614

For the full log/guide see this thread.

Small note, it took about a week for Dwoods brackets to arrive in the Netherlands. Not bad at all!

I'll be performing "The Mod" on my new GTX670 as soon as I get the bracket from Dwood thumb.gif

ASUS GTX670 DirectCUII TOP wheee.gif

EDIT: Does anyone know of any fans that I can plug directly into the PCB of the card?

I don't think they exist. You can cut of the smaller connector from the stock fan and solder it to the new case fan if you want. Or just simply cut both wires and twist and tape them together if you lack a solder iron. Since most on-PCB connectors are 4 pins (PWM) look for a case fan that matches this.

[not so serious hint]
You can also solder the fan's cable directly to the PCB of the graphics card. I once did that since the connector broke. But thats a more of a I-don't-care-since-it's-an-old-card-and-my-warrenty-voided-a-year-ago-anyway-and-i-had-to-bake-it-twice sort of thing to do. (got to love the 8800 cards of nVidia)
