For those wondering about this mod with a ACX cooler from EVGA...






This is for the GTX 780.

You will need a shim, which looks to be 1.5mm, I don't have anything to measure that small so its a guess. The oval shape of the Kuhler 620 hits one of the PCB plate mounts for the screws on the backside.
Cooler comes off with just the 4 spring loaded screws on the back, disconnect the fan, and take off the cooler, very easy.
The holes you would use are wide open and easily accessible.

Dat GTX780 looks so awesome! Oh I want one.... If only it was like $400 cheaper...

Play game titles a minimum of two years after they are released. That way you can buy the games and a killer card(s) to run them for about a 80% discount.

It really works.

Just save some money for 3 years for a video card. Buy a new card about every 3rd generation or so, or when performance of a new card is significantly higher than your current one.

It really isn't that much if you plan for it. If you put $40 away each month you'l have $1440.0 in time for the next flagship release card. Then either sell your old one or SLI.

However, for that strategy to work you have to buy the flagship card or else it is difficult to carry performance 3 years into the future and keep graphical settings.

Buying cheaper cards more often "feels" more affordable but you can end up paying more or the same in the end.

Just picked up a gtx780 yesterday. I had to wait for three weeks to get it with free shipping. Sooo excited, when I opened it my first thought was I wonder what it looks like inside. Then I saw the post with it opened up. Wow that looks cool. Some day maybe I'll get the guts to open mine. I havent even hooked it up yet, just looking at it. I've never had something so close to top of the tier before. I'm still testing my gtx 560 ti modded with a old asetek cooler. First time I've overclocked anything. So far so good at gpu 950 mhz memory 2058 mhz stock voltage 1062mv. Played Crysis 3 for acouple of hours and seems to be fine. Settings at high smaa low 1x useing evga precision and fraps and getting between 50 to 60 fps. Temps stay around 50c. Want to say thanks to everyone for the advice and info.

Well I picked up a EVGA GTX 760 SC and a CM Seidon 120M.Went with the EVGA because the cost of both GPU and CLC was cheaper than the MSI, and the EVGA comes with a backplate. Also because the 760 series seem to all share a bottleneck so it doesn't matter which was bought. But anyway, I will probably have some pics of my mod next week when I receive my hardware.

Also, what seems to be the best when it comes to price-to-performance for copper heatsinks for the GPU memory?

Aluminum or Copper doesn't make too much of a difference. They just need something to help dissipate heat.

Ooh! Seidon 120M + The Mod, excited! thumb.gif

I am thinking about doing this mod to my 560ti
However should I just ghetto mount it with cable ties or should I use this?

Thanks

I've used both with the same result. The ties arent as pretty so if you're worried about how it looks then get the bracket.

Do you have 560ti?
What would be the easiest way of cooling VRM with the Sigma_Cool?
I was thinking this + these + front fan pointed towards card
Thanks for quick reply, might prefer to use bracket as it would look a bit better and less error might be made.
Also what TIM did you use?
