Idle doesnt really matter, what matters is your load. You just use idle as a reference point. 50C sounds pretty normal, 70C is rather hot. Your AIO should cool better than your stock air cooler. Try using more thermal paste; found that i needed a little more for seating a GPU cooler than a CPU cooler.

Hmm, I'll try using more thermal paste once I save up enough to buy another tube. However my video card crashing during benchmarking is still pretty confusing. :/

The reason why it is crashing during bench is because your GPU is overheating (due to a bad reseat) therefore it will crash. Try doing an X method instead of a pea size drop, found that more efficient when seating an AIO with a GPU. Is your GPU crashing on benchmark even on stock settings and no OC?

You said it was done by zipties? I tried the ziptie method with my 670 FTW and really had very little luck. Can you try modifying your mounting bracket? I found that the best way to mount my AIO using the stock bracket and modifying that so i can use screws/nuts to secure the AIO. i found that screwing it down was the most efficient way on getting the best seating. I think your cooler makes contact with the GPU but the zipties needs probably one more notch to REALLY get that exact pressure down. It might be loose by a LITTLE little bit... which is causing your problems during load.

Yeah I used the ziptie method for my 670 FTW, however I did have to mod the lower shroud in order to get the 620 to actually seat properly. (Had to file it to size) I'll try the X method with the TIM and try to tighten the zipties while I'm at it. And if I have to I'll use a slip of cardboard between the 620 and the upper shroud to put pressure on the 620.

It is crashing even on stock settings which is the unfortunate issue.

--Edit--
The reason I used the ziptie method is because it was the only way for me to keep the stock shroud on without having to cut too much of the lower shroud. I'll see if I can't cut the bracket to size and get a bracket working with the stock shroud.

Have you lapped the pump, they can have surface issues. My 580/zippy had play enough it could slide on the ihs but still maxed temp well below yours. I say remove that shroud and try it before repairing.

- its no overclock / overvolt ?
- what benchmark did u run? try furmark and look at the temp
- if ur 100% sure the card never goes over 70c its not too hot... (might be somthing wrong the the sensor) and if ur stock "Vram-metal piece" is still over the vrams, it cant be the vrams that is getting too hot either..

You may need to really crank down on those zip ties. Make sure the surfaces are met and hold it in position then pull down on the zip ties to secure the mount.
Grab a pair of grips or pliers and give each zip tie a nice hard tug, you won't break them. (just don't pull like you are trying to break them tongue.gif )

Hey guys! I just got off the phone with an EVGA customer service rep, by the name of "Chris" and he said that normally modifying the graphics card housing would void the warranty, but he said that as long as its just like physical damage to the housing and its repairable/able to be replaced by their factory.... theyll charge like $30 or something he says, to replace the "modified" housing before they help you out with your RMA (say you RMA it with the modified housing).

I asked if this was just a "deal" that they do with people over the phone, and he says no... they do this for anyone and as long as its not like a physical damage like a screwdriver to the PCB and causes a scratch (ouch).... but INSTEAD, like something minimal like "i modified the housing to fit my waterblock in it".... they said thats not going to be a problem if you need to RMA your card. You just need to tell them ahead of time that you have the damaged/modified housing and theyll take the necessary steps.

So i think im going to start modding my graphics card housing to hide the H80i in it. Im sure it will look SUPER clean now biggrin.gif
