what did you use for tim? some like artic 5 will spread over time thats why i got some mk4.

personally if you think its not seating all the way you did the right thing by waiting and reseating. The easiest thing to do is nothing, the hardest part is waiting and doing it right.

What i have done in the past is get a magnifying glass with a (like ) 10x bubble and look closely at the side of the card to make sure its seating properly..

When attach my clc to my 660ti i may test the setup with a piece of paper.. ( out of the machine) tighten it up with tim and see if the paper comes out easily.. But then i would have to clean it up and re-apply tim... I dont suggest this i just may try it.

anyone else have an idea other than looking at temps?

If u think its a gap then dry fit it with a length of thread between the pump and ihs, if there is a gap the thread will pull out easy.

I did power the system up, but it didn't go anywhere since the mobo died at the same time. Thinking it was the card I put it all back together how it came and it seemed to work in my buddys sytem. Just not sure if a shim of some kind is needed for the mod.

Just finished installing, here are some pictures
Warning: Lots of Pictures (Click to show)























i used dwoods bracket, which was amazingly easy to install. the 620 rads didnt reach the front of my case (corsair 600t) so i gutted some old fans i had and created wind tunnels with the extra shrouds. ignore the smudgyness of the window panel, i scratched it up pretty bad when installing that 80mm fan a while back.

my idle temps are 25C on both cards, and load temps have peaked at 45C. that is with stock clocks, gonna get to overclocking now that i have much better cooling.

Dwood bracket is amazing for completing the mod. Nice job
post #2698 of 8603
How does this mod compare to using the accelero xtremr iii on the gigabyte gtx 670?
post #2699 of 8603
from the results ive seen they are pretty close. Depending on user some will be better and some worse. My Mod card runs cooler than any of the accelero models but others are right around the same as the accelero models.

AFAIK, it is the most effective one, and the only dual slot one.
