Room temp makes a direct degree for degree difference. I gave the system to my son for Christmas, in Ohio. While we sat thru a blizzard it only hit 52c with 950MHz OC.

Gallery view on this thread is amazing. So many nice mods. I plan on doing my CPU with a 620, cleaning up some wires, and when I do I will put some copper heat sinks on top of my stock vram heat sink plate.

You click any image within this thread, then you click the "gallery view" button and scroll to the top. Don't click off the side else it'll close the gallery but you can right click and open specific images to view.

For the bro in Denmark - Just don't use kitchen bag ties!!.. go to whatever hardware store and get the ones that are about $4US for a bag of 100...

And something that may not occur to a noob (like I was before last weekend): the smaller the zips, the higher the resolution of teeth per inch... so when securing, you are able to get each one (of the 4) that much tighter... a larger zip (that would still go through heatsink holes) could end up in the sweet spot between teeth when tightening - and not be able to grab onto next tooth... thus, it falls back to the previous - and not as tight as it could be, if a smaller zip was used...

Aha, will do that once I get my hands on the CLC itself, although im seriously considering the bracket from Dwood :/, just need dem funds first.

I am not trying to take away any biz from DWood.. by all accounts, he is a great guy. But since (through no fault of his) it took 9 full days for my DWoods to arrive via USPS First Class (only four states away), I ended up using zips because I needed to do mod when I did - and couldn't wait any more. It was so simple - a really smart monkey could prolly do it... they are on very snug and secure - and not going anywhere - any time soon. I could sleep (soundly) while the beast renders all night.. without any worries whatsoever. In other words: I can attest to the zips working beautifully. But I will likely use DWoods at some point. They are on a shelf right now.

Also, when I modded the CPU brackets on my Asetek 760GC's to work with my Opteron's Socket F 1207, I Dremeled off the excess crap that would be bumping into stuff on my mobo.. and drilled some holes - with Dremel... Unless I'm missing something - the exact same thing I did for my CPU's could be done with brackets that come with a 620 (same as 760GC, if not mistaken) - and used on GPU, right. I really think you could chop the AMD bracket (or whatever works) down to just what you need - and drill some holes in the thing... grab some little bolts & nuts from hardware store.. easy-peezy-lemon-squeezy.. right? But I understand that not everyone owns a Dremel or knows how to use one... so this only applies to those of us who can Dremel something into submission.. and make it do what we want...

Here is that shot of CPU's:

hi frank nice detailed photos.
one thing i did notice when i put a bracket on my pump along with some other mods, was a reduction in temps. While zip ties have been done since the beginning I just felt more confident with the bracket. I also use light springs so i can visually see the compresson on each screw.. i use it as a guage.
Both ways work its nice to have a choice.
not to mention modding the oem bracket. It has done a few times in different ways.
Dwood has some pretty nice custom brackets if you want to give it that custom look. They have been featured in some of the mod of the month rigs. And yea he is a super nice guy.
Personally i really like it when someone does a mod thats a little different from the rest so it gives us more options.

Okay.....mayyyyyy have jumped the gun a little bit here. I am having some SERIOUS issues with my 580 now, after applying "The Mod". mad.gif I am continually getting "driver has stopped working, and recovered..." popping up. I've tried updating to the newest drivers, rolling back to the 296.xx driver, I rolled back to stock clocks and voltages immediately, but I'm pretty sure I shot myself in the foot with this one. Any insight? I know that's not a lot of info to go on, so if you need anything else, let me know. Thanks in advance. redface.gif
post #3510 of 8626
Additional info to my previous post:

-I can't make it through a single test sequence in 3Dmark or Unigen without a driver crash; this usually happens within the first 5 - 30 seconds.
-I seem to be able to run Kombustor non stop; in fact, it's running as I type this.
-With Afterburner open, my temp only gets up to high 40s/low 50s so far as I can see while Kombustor is running

Again, thanks in advance!
