Yeah I have the pump into a molex and the fans on POS NZXT Sentry2 controller. Most of the time i have them at 40% for general browsing, 50-70% for gaming, 100% for benching.

I can play BF3 at 40% fan speed and the cards stay @50c or under at stock clocks. Sometime I OC them to 850 then crank the fans to 60-70c to stay under 50c.

OMG, OMG... toooooo much TIM. smile.gif

Really, you dont need that much man... less is more with TIM

If it helps. I have a H50 on a 580 and there is no issues. Your setup should work also.


Those are examples. That's not his TIM...

This forum led to me try this setup as well. Works like magic. Used zip-ties. Took 45min and only felt like I needed 2 extra hands a couple of times!

The bracket is much easier; it took me ten minutes to do. make sure it's tight, though.

Holy wire management batman!

P182 I see!
I've got one as well, you can do much better wiring than that! redface.gif

Nope, it's a 1st gen P180, sir. There is little that can be done. It's not nearly as bad as it seems initially thumb.gif Also, it's detrimental to my mental health to do anything too permanent to the cabling since it gets moved around and re-done anywhere from 2-3 times a month depending on what I'm jamming into the case or removing from it rolleyes.gif Heck, even between the two shots I posted, you can see I swapped out my RAM, and then modded the CPU cooler with a SilenX fan (which was removed the same day since it didn't cool well enough). This box is a never-ending work in progress wink.gif

That said, my advice still stands, sink em and cool em.
As too which heatsink, what ever your budget allows. Either of those will do the job nicely thumb.gif

ahaha it's all cool.
hm ok. the stock heat plate should do it's job well enough right?

I don't know the physics behind it. I work with chip diesigners and have heard it discussed many times, especially when selecting a cell (transistor) library for use with some sub-micron process.

yes i'm aware of that haha. i probably won't have the card for more than 5 years anyways, so the warranty covers it (as long as i can flash it back to original bios lol)

If you are suggesting that the manufacturer doesn't cover overclocking, it's probably better not to say that on this forum; the mods don't like it. That's why I love EVGA, though; they don't care if you overclock.

oh no... i meant more that i don't care much about "transistor degradation over time" because of the warranty.

sorry if that came across wrong.

but the reason i said "as long as i can flash it back to original bios" was because i heard somewhere on OCN that the warranty doesn't cover flashed bios? i may be wrong

Okay, it turns out that flashing the BIOS is the only thing that EVGA doesn't allow you to do to your cards, other than stick them in your blender.

If you messing with the BIOS then yes, that can void the warranty. The only time flashing the BIOS will not void the warranty is if EVGA grants you permission to do so.

If you flash your card and kill it in the processes, then your warranty is most likely void.
