[Official] NVIDIA GPU Mod Club - AKA "The Mod" - Page 376

post #3751 of 8626
Hey...does anybody know of a simple but effective GPU temp "Alert" software that I can run to detect when/if a card (or cards) is critically overheating? I mean, due to pump failure, etc.?

Just his weekend, as I do each month, I took my computer up to my day job where we have all sorts of compressed air blowers and what not for cleaning, a simple process really...just remove my case cover and blow around with these industrial strength blowers until it's all shiny and nice and then I just take it home and plug it all back in.

There's never been any issues with this as it's not like super violent pressure or anything and I really just, you know, blow around components and what not.

But this weekend, upon setting my rig back up (basically just plugging connectors back in), I noticed that upon first boot in to windows, it quickly just rebooted (like a system failure). On the second boot, it ran just fine and worked well all weekend, gaming, movies, everything.

But then again, this monday morning, right around 5am, my computer shut down again. And when I got up and restarted it, it did that same "boot in to windows, then black screen and loop" deal. No matter how many times I watched it, it just looped (stupid me should have at least checked my card temps before the next step, which wasn't so bad of a step cause I keep weekly full disc images, but still) ...

And so having a system that's been rock solid for over a year and absolutely *HATING* full system re installs, I decided to start an Acronis image restore from a week old backup just as I left from work (a fairly simple process and Acronis is pretty bulletproof so I just let it run while I was at work).

So when I get home, the system fires up perfect and seems to be running okay for a few minutes and then, just on a whim, I open EVGA Precision X to check my two cards temps and my one card that has The Mod(tm) applied to it was showing 95C at idle. And that's when I knew ...

LOL ...

So I shut the whole thing down and removed the back panel on my 600T case to check the power connector for the Antec cooler and sure enough, the three pin connector had been jostled in my movement of the case and was only half way plugged in to the power rail...

Upon restart? Back to 25C idle as I expected ...

...

So again...

PS: Acronis True Image rocks ...

I run the fan off a fan controller ...

Anyway ... just found a way to do temperature limit alerts with PrecsionX which should work just fine.

Thanks.

I just ordered from his page and he actually pointed this out to me (since I was also ordering backplates. You could do the same as I did, have it hanging off the side, or maybe he has another idea. Write and ask!

Sooooo, I'm going for the H40 on my Gainward GTX 670.
Is this : http://www.multicom.no/PartDetailInfo.aspx?q=p:2326276
the correct heatsinks to go for? I found a picture by accident of a guy with the same graphic card as me,
he had those fitted on different exposed parts.

1. How do I attached them?
2. And should I just cover every area without heatsinks?

If someone has a picture that would be great smile.gif

I do not use any heatsinks. I have my backplate still on the card and i have a 120mm fan providing airflow over the card. It is enough smile.gif

I'm trying to get my computer to be as silent as I can, so I'm just doing the H40 mod - no fans wink.gif

You need to use thermal adhesive, different from thermal paste or pads. It's a two part epoxy mixture that creates a permanent bond.
