gpu do give out some heat but that heat is not literally getting dumped in your case..movement of air,and the pressure inside the case will quickly move any heat that hasn't already dissipated from intake air moving over radiator and thru to the case, will quickly be pushed/sucked out of your case

Still working on this. I've been running with an open case side since the Kuhlers too. I'm exhausting out the front, but I noticed when I put on the case side, my temperatures skyrocket and the airflow exhausting out the front of my case you could no longer feel. Is this because there is not enough air for the fans to grab inside the case thus another reason I should switch the rads to intake in the front?

Dwood, thats an amazing diff between the two cards, running both side by side one modded and one not. Do you have plans to create a bracket that allows for the stock shroud to be kept which would allow for stock fans for pcb cooling.... cause that would be pretty epic.

Thanks for any assist.

At 2D (50/100) Im at 0.963v. At full OC 940/1880 Im at 1.125v

Your voltage will have an effect on how stable your clocks are. By all means have a crack at lowering them, just be aware you need to check stability after you have set them.

I just got some brackets for my GTX 580's. I have one registered under EVGA stepup so I'm asking them if it voids my warranty or not and my second GTX 580 was bought on ebay and is yet to ship sad-smiley-002.gif Anyways I will be preforming this ''mod'' on both my GTX 580's cause it looks cool. Also I had picked up a 620 but I wanted to know if dwoods 620 brackets for the 580's are able to fit the 920?

There's nothing on the website that says you can't use after market cooling, it just says you must send it back the way you received it.

The product must be returned to EVGA in the original factory configuration and condition. All aftermarket modifications must be reversed before sending in the product for replacement.

So as long as you don't damage or permanently mod the card you should be fine.

a 620 would easily do the job. Mine tops out at 54C. If you were super crazy you could take off the IHS and that'd get you even better temps too!
I think this 620 is absolutely perfect for a GPU. I'm not sure on the life of the actual cooler but I'm hoping it'll last for at least 3-5 years. Think, kepler is out so in a year or two we'll probably all upgrade to kepler cards, whether that's the 670-680 or 7** series cards, then whatever is next will hopefully have less heat which will make it even a better cooler for the GPU. So sawweeet
