I doubt you would even need the Fan on for under 1.1v overclock's. The heat plate is more than enough to cool it. Instead of the cards fan, maybe you should look into having a low speed quite 120mm fan blowing over the cards during gaming and benchmark seasons. Heck If I was doing this I would lock the fan at 30% tongue.gif

anybody know what size barbs I need when I want to connect my swiftech micro res to the antec 920 /620? The stock barbs on that res are too big, so I need barbs that would have to fit the micro res and also the tubing. I have some old 1/4 tubing, I guess thats whats required right? any links would be appreciated. smile.gif

WOOHOO!! Simply awesome! I did a different type of mod...since I realized you can use the stock mounting with only using 8 zip ties instead of 9...

Check it out!
450
Oh my gosh, it looks good when you first get it, but WOWWW is it concave. Took me 4 pieces of 600grit sand paper and then some 1500 grit, and still then I only got the area around the center where the die will be. I didn't care too much to continue lapping until the entire thing was done, I knew the die is like 1/2 the size of the heat spreader so I'd be ok with just the center lapped.

As you see I only needed the zip ties to tie down the mounting bracket to the card...
450

Freaking awesome! Room was SOOOOOOOOOO hot! Gosh! Talk about no airflow. But here's the result. Got upto 26C in the case. Usually is 22C or lower. So I expect at least 2C better when I benchmark again.
400

So legit. I was a bit worried that the paste got spread out too much since the cooler twisted around when I was trying to tighten up the zip ties..but seems to be fine. Right now idling at 23C when I've got a 22C case temp..lolz I'm happy with that.

VRM appear to be around 70C when checking PCB temp, surprisingly the heatsinks for the VRM's don't seem that warm....so I'm almost thinking the thermal pad is crap ASUS uses... VRAM is around 50C.

I see what you did there, thats a nice adaptation to the mod, very clean looking. Your idle temps are very....very good. Why is there so much room in your case, enough room in there still to fit the kitchen sink yet.

My only thought while looking into mounting methods was having metal against the pcb, i was afraid of shorting something, what did you do for insulation between the two......MUST HAVE MORE PICS

Welcome to the club and +rep

The only thing touching the PCB is the zipties and then the heatsink on the die... I cut the screw holes on the mounting bracket to solve that issue with those hitting the PCB and/or Vram...

Game temps: doesn't even warm up...lol

I tore out my HDD and optical drive bays..lol I could probably fit a toaster or coffee maker in there...literally

Bump, Some help here please smile.gif

1/4OD on the barbs. Technically, you can take the clip off, cut the hose at the edge of the barb, then slide a 3/8" ID Hose, then zip-tie/clamp, whatever you choose. PB4UGO told me about it 1/2 way through the 620/920 thread.
