By the way, is anybody familiar with the type of carbon fiber wrap Cakewalk used on his cards? (link)

Looks like 3M DINOC but can't tell for sure.....would love to cover the cluster in that stuff :3

So it turns out there is no point me getting a HXXi based cooler for the GPU as according to someone over on the Corsair Forum's the Link software only recognises one digital AIO cooler.

I already have the H100i and AX860i PSU but any addtional H80i's on the GPU's would be pointless as I can't control them via Link as I would like.

If anyone has done this please do let me know. So at the moment I'm thinking of getting this

http://www.scan.co.uk/products/corsair-cooling-hydro-series-h70-core-performance-cpu-cooler-with-2x-pwm-fans-120mm-radiator-scan-ex?utm_source=google+shopping&utm_medium=google+shopping


And placing one on the rear of the case and one on the back of the HD cage and the front. If my misspriced GPU turns up that is..

I did want to use a large fan eg 200mm Bitfenix but somone a couple of posts above highlighted the fact I wouldnt get good airflow as the fan would overlap the card?

Thanks to Menty who suggested I go to Kustom PC's and get these brackets which are UK based, I did speak to Dwood who came back with a good price etc but didnt get back to me about the 200mm fan mount bracket.

So I'm thinking to make it easy I'll get the brackets with the 92mm fan mounts.. Now the dilema is.., Which 92mm fans?

Also do people plug the fans into the GPU or the mobo? Ideally I'd like the GPU to control the fan like it would normally but have the AIO on the GPU die to help cooling.

Thanks a lot for your answer.

I have a couple of questions, though:

- Which particular non-reference 570 did you do the mod to?
- I have a Inno3D gtx570 Hawk (see pic below), by looking at it do you believe I will also be able to keep the stock PCB plate do cool the VRM and Mosfets as you did or will I have to buy a set of Arctic Cooling VR004 Heatsinks? Remember that my WC kit is the Asetek 760GC and the 740GF, designed to work with the 570/580 so no mod is needed to mount the main block, only the rest of the card.

Cheers

I'm not sure if someone asked this already, but can I use EVGA's backplates with this mod?
I was thinking if there might be any issues, such as the the screws from this mod being long enough?

I have a 560 448 Ti, which uses either a 570 or 580 pcb I believe, and it has a heat spreader that I left on for the ram/vram. I'm running +225mhz over stock/+150mv using Afterburner with a Tt Water Pro 2.0 and a 90mm fan blowing right onto the spreader. Temps are golden. Never above 47C when playing BF3 Ultra 1080p 65fps.

Great. So you didn't leave the stock fan, which one you bought? In that regard, do you think buying a 92x14mm fan is worth it, opposed to buying a cheap arctic cooling F9 92x25mm fan? Did you connect you 4 pin PWM fan to the Gpu an let it run or did you fixe RPM to reduce noise?
Thanks :-)

I swapped the stock fans for a 92mm SilenX fan from TigerDirect. The main consideration is how much air the fan will push, at what effeciency, and at what noise level. Looks like the F9 is similar to my fan. Should be fine. My fan is only a 3 pin and rather than plug it into the GPU fan header I'm running straight to the mobo. I don't want to fry the GPU fan circuit and I don't mind cooling the ram/vram at full blast 100% of the time. I do have a pack of 8 Enzotech copper ram sinks that I'm going to put on top of the heat spreader, but I'm too lazy to do it and since I game every day can't pull myself away from it for even a day. Sad, but I'm compelled to game nightly. :]

Noise level is inaudible compared to my 6 other fans in the case, two of which are PWM; one for my GPU and the other for my CPU. My GPU/CPU PWM fans never get above 45%.

Yeah I used mine, just had the screw heads on the bottom on the pcb so the extra didnt hit the backplate

So even with all those fans and your pc is quieter, even in idle mode?

I have 15 fans on my PC (Paul,ram fans, rads,case,ect.) and is almost silent since this mod. Best sound reduction mod ever
