check to see if there is hot air being blown out the rad, first way to check to see if its seated right and pump is running. IF you know the pump is running (at full speed-direct to psu) then its a bad seat. Ive done bad ones lots, no biggy. Always have lots of paste when doing this mod thumb.gif

The fans used to make my shrouds were old crappy ones anyway, so the housings are put to good use smile.gif

In my experiences this kills the fans bearings quite fast, its usually the lesser performing fan who takes the hit.

WOW! It works after a reseat and plenty of paste smile.gif i just used a small pea size like i used to do with seating a CPU... but this time i added some more paste and its down to 27C !!!! biggrin.gif super happy right now. I guess with these kind of mods you really need to use more paste.

How much more paste would you say.

Hey guys, my Antec 620 should be here tomorrow, as well as my dwood bracket hopefully soon after. I will be running this mod on my gtx 470, and was just wondering what people has encountered as far as VRM and memory overclock potential. I read somewhere people were not able to OC as well because they didn't have good VRM/ram cooling. Im hoping the dwood bracket would allow me to push the card pretty hard without an issue. Right now I run .950 volts with 730 core and 1770 Ram but I would like to run 1-1.35v at close to 800 core and 1850 ram, just wondering if people think the ram and vrms can handle this. It won't be 24/7, only while gaming.

One of my cards can push 1.2v and 1 GHz, however this is only for a few minutes at a time. I am not "stable until I hit a balancing point of 1.15v and 888Mhz. So its really dependant on the health of your GPU.

Yes, TJ just did two about 4 pages back, nice pic uploads too. He loves it and the cards look fantastic.

@Shoot em Up- your air to pcb will not change, if anything airflow will be better using Dwood bracket/ fan mount edition. Remember, the air from the stock fans needed to make it past/through the heatsink fins before. You have no heatsink now so the air will blow directly on the pcb. The heatsink would also heat the air up a lot before it blew on that pcb too. Your card is better than it was stock now.

Ive used 1.293v benchmarking (1017-1068core) and it just cooks the paste faster, no issues though. I have oc the mem too (5000-5500) but those extremes are not at the same time. For both to be oc at the same time its more 1027 core & 5000 mem.

Wow, that is a lot of mhz on your core! what is your ram at? I know my card used to be stable at 1.087V with a 850 core and 2000 ram, but a lot of those volts were going towards RAM OC, although maybe that high on the RAM isn't even as important as say your 888 on the core. I guess i will have to experiment with that.


Also, my numbers were wrong before, I meant 1.035v, not 1.35.

Where? I've just been 14 pages back and nothing... Could you be a buddy and link?
