Good thing it was one pump and two sockets, I don't want to be in the wrong classification.

I couldnt finish my mount last night as i had to mod my heatsink to fit the bracket.. ( forgot about that part) went to mount the heatsinks and no ceramic paste left. I wasnt going to use artic silver so i had to stop by microcenter today .. and pick up some mx-4. While i was there i decided to give my system a real push pull system by moving the fans from the pro setup to under the rad so they would all be matched fans. I bought corsair sp120 quiet fans 1,450 rpm with 23dba. So these should run fine on the video setup. Hopefully they are fast enough as my old ones are 2000rpm top speed. These have a static pressure of 1.29mmH20. or whatevah. freggin pricy fans but the white blades matched my build.
If life gives me time ill finish assembling ( asuming i fixed the mount) and run tests later with the new mount. I decided to just stay up and push thru today to finish this up. zzzz

if anyone interested in acquiring my setup? I moved everything in a BitFenix Prodigy so my GTX 670 mod kit is pretty much unusable. PM for details.

Can I join?

My first post!!

After reading through this thread I finally took the leap.......

The goal was silent cooling with minimal modifications to the stock parts of my EVGA 560ti Fermi FTW since I'm still under warranty.

I kept the heatplate intact so it's tight fit, the part of the bracket that holds the fan makes direct contact with the heatplate.



A little housekeeping....

The picture makes it look like more thermal compound that I actually used....

Looking good....


Contact with the heatplate makes the nameplate look a little cockeyed. No biggie.

You can see the fins on the heatplate pushing against the bracket...

If I decide I can't live with that, screw the heatplate. This is plan B.....

This is my 600T before. For such a large case notice the tight fit of the CPU RAD. I couldn't do push pull with two 120mm fans. I had to use a reducing shroud with a 92mm for push

The shroud and 92mm fan are resting on the DIMM's rolleyes.gif

What case warranty!

Finally...








I'm not big on LED's. Where my PC sits in my office, it can be seen from the street at night and attracts too much attention. I do plan on putting a red LED strip behind the name tag. I wanted to use a 92 mm red LED fan on the GPU but I couldn't find one with a good CFM/DBA ratio. I try to keep all my fans under 15 DBA.

At stock speed the GPU idles at 31C and 57C under load running a Kombustor stress test. Previously temps were 33C/80C. Not bad at all. If you're curious about the CPU push/pull setup, the CPU also idles around 31C and 59C under load with Prime95. Ambient temperature is 25C. Time to go checkout the overclocking threads!!!

Thanks to all the expert contributors here and a special thanks to Dwood!

@danh1 nice photos. Very clean install.

When I first bought Artic Clean I thought it might have been a waste of money till I used it for the first time.
Now i dont use anything but artic clean, coffee filters ( no lint) and some q-tips for making sure i dont leave any artic sliver on my
processor pcb and a soft toothbrush or soft paintbrush. These days i used a good magnifiying glass as its easy to leave a small amount. With the heat spreader you shouldnt have that
issue. I picked up some mx-4 for my heatsink where it lays on top of the mosfets. ( I think thats what they are called. )

Possibly where you mounted the fan on the card you could use a couple of nylon washers to level out the fan. Little things like that
drive me nuts :>. I would keep the plate if at all possible.

with that large heat spreader just make sure the tim spreads out over the entire chip if possible. If it didnt it could possibly it would lower your load temps.

It would be nice if they made a model of the cooler with straight hose connectors. The part the comes out of the pump. I might see if i can find some
fittings to replace mine with as it would make cooling sli/crossfire setups easier.

I stopped by Micro center the other day and saw some thin 120mm fans. I dont remember the specs on them but it may be an option on your
close quarters of the radiator. Not that you would really need to do anything.

Thanks for posting! Clear pictures with good descriptions really make a difference to someone thinking about this mod. :>

It's the bracket that mounted a little cockeyed as opposed to the fan. The side of the heatplate where the pump goes is thinner than the side with the mosfets below the fan. I'll see how it looks after the LED's go in. I might just shave the fins instead of doing away with the heatplate. I also have the individual heatsinks to cool the mosfets. I think I saw where Dwood has an option to raise the part of the bracket that holds the fan. I didn't think of it until I actually installed it. I probably end up trying all options biggrin.gif

I looked at thinner 120mm fans too. Incredibly even 15mm won't fit. The case adds to the problem but it's really the motherboard. Just above the DIMM's there is a heatsink that protrudes just about as much as the DIMM's.

Overall I'm pretty happy with the temps although that might change when I start overclocking. We'll see what happens. I'll keep y'all posted.

Thanks for the feedback!

Ok made a few changes to my system. reseated both gpus mx-4 used. Had to rework my heatsink a few times. ugg.
added 2 different fans to the dual gpu rad so i can use my thermaltakes on the cpu for push pull. I will update a bit more but i need a break. I havent seen my kid all day. :<<br /> Oh yea side pannel on with fan.
ran for about 5 min for idle test.

Thanks to everyone in this thread, inspired me to do this to my 670's in SLI.

It's very messy right now since it's not a final setup and i'm going to have to tear it down soon to install the 92mm fans, will manage the cables after that. Dwood (bracket):super fast shipping, Amazon (Antec 620's): super fast shipping, Newegg (120mm fans): super fast shipping, Platinum Micro (92mm fans)...... not so much rolleyes.gif I have a 120mm blowing on the cards VRM along with the side panel fan for now.

how are you all with 670's monitoring your VRM temps? My Galaxy 670 4gb GC's don't show any temps with various programs i've tried.
My preliminary temps: 26C idle and 46-47C with a loop of Heaven uncapped FPS. biggrin.gif

That's awesome. I have a different gpu, but I will have sli and an h100 on my cpu.

Just hoping to fit the 620 loops in better.
