Very cool to see that people are still doing this mod with newer cards. I've been wanting to do it for a while and just ordered a Corsair H55 intending to do so. Really looking forward to less noise and the overclocking potential.

I hope you put the scroud back on the card. That blower fan won't work properly to cool the PCB plate and the VRMs and VRam is cooled through the PCB plate...those puppies are going to get deathly hot, like cook an egg hot.... I'd either use a blower fan or get some small 70-90mm fan blowing up on the PCB plate from the bottom... I had my 580 modded and I HAD to keep the scroud to keep the blower fan to work as cooling the VRM and vram... I even glued down heatsinks on the PCB plate for better cooling...
Looks good tho! I bet if you delid that puppy you'd be at like mid-low 40's for max temps... but thats risky and you'd need to cut a hole in the PCB plate to fit the cooler on without a shim...

Looks great!. I kept the shrouds off on my 480's since inception of the mod. Never had a problem with VRM temps. Of course I also have a ridiculous amount of air pouring into the case as well. thumb.gif

Just wanted to check back in to the thread, I've moved my computer a bunch, winter rolled in, and my GPU's are still running the mod flawlessly if not even better. Thanks to the cooler temperatures due to winter and the crappy insulation in my room its running even cooler! Idle is at 23°C and load is 38°C so I'm eager to try my benchmarking again.

@ krambo nice job .. I got one of those el cheapo harbor freight temp guns.. ( infra red laser) that way I can keep an eye on temps.

I wonder if someone ever put a mini shroud on the fan.. like a half fan cover to force the air where you wanted it to go..

either way nice to see the mod.. Great photos that you can see.. Thanks for sharing.

@EchoTwoZero maybe that machine will dump some heat in the air ;> thanks for the update.

sweet..
btw there is a deal people passed on to me on ocn..
slickdeals has a tiger direct deal
480 gig Seagate ssd for 230.
sorry but im really busy..

also there are some pros and cons in the daily online deals..
214.99 for a galaxy 660ti gc 3gig..
they are suspending north America support according to people talking in the thread.. but
my 660ti gc 2 gig was a rock and worked awesome. just saying.

have a great weekend.
