Temp went from ~50-51C to 47-48C. The fan looks awesome too! Not sure how much better cooling I can get with the Antec 620 mod on my 580. Lapped, direct die, best fans...It's awesome I can overclock to 1.150V and it doesn't break 50C now... Well worth the investment!

Good to know, been using the stock antec/h100 fan in a push pull but I definitely want a quieter fan.

Any thoughts on fan speed?

I'd buy both brackets and test but I'm poor. Throw in that I can't find zip-ties thin enough to fit through the heatplates of my 470s (I've tried like ten different brands!) and all I can do is guess.

I use 45% fan speed minimum on my 480 and increase it if it goes past 60; I've never run into problems with that. I also set mine to hit 100% at 90 degrees so that it can't overheat without me knowing.

For my SLI 480's, I keep my P/P Rad fans at 40% for most of the time. Sometimes will crank to 60% if temps climb to mid 50's. GPU fans is kept at stock speeds.

Awesome - thanks so much!

Rage, cravinmild - how about your VRM fan settings?

well for me i was able to retain the shroud off my card.. which also happened to have both stock gpu fans attached. The cards fans are adjusted as they would be normally. If the card senses increasing heat the card will ramp up fan speed no different than stock.
I use gpu tweak (asus gpu oc software) which has special extras (like custom individual fan control) for the matrix. My fan profile is 20% for anything under 45c for both fans, this is pretty much dead quiet. For 45c and up ill have the rear fan which does not sit above the chip but the rear part of the card move up to 35% but keep the front fan at 20%. For any overclocking i just use the 100% fan button on the cards pcb which overrides any software fan profiles setting both fans to 100%

Over all id say there is not alot of difference between my stock temps and post mod temps for anthing other than the chip. The chip sees a drastic reduction in temps, the various parts of the pcb should be cooler as the stock heatsink is no longer between the fans and pcb now but, its pretty much the same. One big reason i think is that the rad sits directly on the bottom of my case, it sucks up cool air from under the pc but then exausts it directly in to the case. The rad is also directly below the gpu so ... ya. Still warm air being blow onto the pcb lol. The H70 tubing is shorter than the newer models and alot shorter than the 620s hoses, not alot of options in a big case... all the places to place the rad are too far away. Im ok with it, still under 50c most times.

My 560ti had no cooling for the pcb, just a naked board and a pump. Even had the stock shroud in place. Ran her like that for a long while untill i upgraded the card. This was still new at the time, didnt know any better. Thanks to all those who have contributed to this thread we all know not cooling the pcb components can be a very bad thing tongue.gif

Edit for clariify that the 560ti did have a full lengh heat plate with thermal pads between it and the other stuff ... vrm, vram. Also the pump overlapped the heatplate on all edges of the cutout for the chip. This could have also helped cool .. indirectly.. IDK but thought it important to add that.

I leave them at stock settings. Never had a problem even when OC'd.

Did "The Mod"! Used a Antec Kuhler 620 with the stock bracket and ZipTies to hold it down, right now my card is naked so I need to grab some VRM heatsinks.

Idle: 36c w/ Dual Monitors (Around 27-30c with a single)
Load: Heaven 3.0 on max = ~53-54c

This is a drop from about 50c Idle with dual monitor and around 78c Load temps! I think my temps are slightly higher as my case is stuffed under my desk in the corner, could probably drop it a few C if I moved it but it doesn't really fit properly any where else.

Alright, I officially caved! Bought some goodies today:
2x Antec Kuhler 620s
2x Adapter plates with fan brackets from dwood (that man is a saint)
1x Fractal Design Define R4 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811352021
2x 92mm fans for the fan brackets

I'm pretty excited to try "The Mod"! I currently have an SLI of 2xEVGA GTX 580 1.5GB cards with stock reference HSF. I have them stuffed in a Lian Li A05B, and they get up to about 78c under load.
My plan is to pull both drive cages from the Fractal Design Define R4, mount my ssd and a laptop HDD (or WD Velociraptor, anyone know if the R4 has enough room on the back of the mobo tray to accomadate the double-depth velociraptor if I remove its stock heatsink?) to the back of the motherboard tray. This will allow me to mount the 2x Kuhler 620 Radiators up front with Push/Pull fans, and my H80 radiator for my CPU in the rear exhaust.

I have EVGA reference 580s, I should be fine with the existing VRM heatsink right?

I'll post pics of the rebirth of my PC in a week or so when everything arrives!
