[Official] NVIDIA GPU Mod Club - AKA "The Mod" - Page 182

post #1811 of 8594
Just finished doing "the mod" on my second matrix. Temperatures are looking good, very quiet too. Both cards sit around 52 to 55 degrees on load.

I also just posted a review on the Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme 240mm radiator, the thing is a beast!

2 side 120mm fans, not in the picture above though. Without the side fans, I believe the PCB or VRMs overheat and I get black screen crashes.

The VRMs are most likely overheating; I would expect that if the PCB is overheating, the VRMs would be 400 degrees.

Agreed! Because the components would fall off the PCB before the PCB itself overheated right? biggrin.gif

I have two of Dwood's brackets (fan mount version) coming in the mail. Hopefully I can get rid of the side fans once I have them installed.

I have question for anyone whose willing to answer it for me. I have a EVGA gtx 670 4 gb. I'm currently waiting on my parts to come in so I can do Antec 920 mod. Now judging by various pictures I've seen, the stock cooling doesn't have any heatsinks or heatplate covering the vram. Now I have my Arctic Accelero XTREME Plus heatsink from my 480 with the smaller heatsinks that go on the vram. Should I put those heatsinks on the vram or not?

I believe that memory heat sinks aren't necessary, if you at least have a fan blowing on them, but are recommended. I don't think DDR5 allows itself to overheat; it degrades its performance if it starts having any errors. If you are planning on over clocking your memory at all, you probably need heat sinks.

I do have my memory overclocked now with the stock heatsink on. Maybe just for reassurance I'll use those bad boys. They're just sitting here after all.
