Is there a best CLC for GPU cooler(Gigabyte GTX770), I see today there is a coupon ending at TD for a H55 for $44.99.
But not sure of it's cooling compared to a H80i or H105 for GPU cooling with a NZXT G10(when become available)
I'm not sure if I will be over-clocking yet, I have an H105 on cpu currently with the H440 Case so I prob should stick with 120 for a front install or 140mm if i go exhaust, any suggestions?
Thanks

I have an H-55 and am not real impressed with it. I would think an H80i with the thicker rad would be better. Dont get me wrong the H55 works its just not one of the better ones. And the H105 will absolutely cool better than the H55.

I went to TD but decided against purchase after reading your post! I have an H60 on my other computer, maybe I"ll try mode on my GTX770 instead.

Will I need a spacer and heat sinks for the vrm?

it depends on the actual gpu and if your gna go crazy with oc's and bench the hole time....if not..then just try direct decent airflo towards these areas..if anything goes above 70+ then back down..the core shouldnt go higher than mid 40's to mid 50's in general with these coolers..
it comes down to luck of the draw..if a gpu wants to run hot..itll run hot.same for opposite.

for example..im trying out the gpu on another rig...far cry 3 with everything on low..and dx9mode.
its one of the only games so far to push the gpu to 48..my cpu gets above 50+ ..
so its not always because you have the best
possable cooling setup...theres more to it than that.
im reseating cpu cooler and maybe gpu cooler tomorow.gna try order the other parts for psu ect..

Regarding the gpu, basically your
asking if an h220 on the cpu and
a gpu block like I have is better
or not than a h70 on the gpu?
What I can tell you is I saw a
10c drop in temps going to the
ek universal gpu block compared
to the h70. Thats a lot. Even now
with the cpu and gpu on the
single 240mm, at stock 1.212v
and 1320mhz on the 770 I get
max temps of 38c in 76F ambient.


this is what the h220 is capable of doing..this is just with the 240mm rad of it..

so guys im taking my idea of cutting heatsink of gtx 770 gigabyte with grinder further, ive already got idea where i will have to cut. The thing im wondering about now is if corsair h55 will be engouh to cool down my gpu core. About vram im not worried as i will still have original heatsink+fan over it.
post #5508 of 8626
Yes the H 55 will work fine. It cools my 780 pretty well. Under load it gets up in the high 50s, so not bad. And the stock plate and fan should keep the VRMs under control. If you get good contact with the pump and dont need a shim it will be fine. Even with a shim it works. I just think its better without one. Less chances of getting a bad mount.My VRMs are what worries me they get pretty hot. And mines got the the plate and fan from the reference cooler. It works but I would like something better

Hey best of luck to you.Wish I had more time to do this cool stuff more but have been way to busy lately wave2.gif

question is, how hard you oced your gpu? And if, will i be able to pull of 80% more power from my gpu core with simple closed loop cooler or should i aim into something like 50% power increase or even lower?

@mike
keep the shroud as is..but maybe try applying better thermal pads on the plate or something like mx4 or even better..ic daimond/shin etsu/nt h1..gc extreme/pk..any decent high end non conductive interface..

H55 will be fine..wen you mount it heres a tip:
Zips-first attach and start tightning half way down..dont touch the core yet..
Once you get about an inch of space..apply thermal compound..otherwise youll be moving the block around to much ruining perfect contact..unlesd you hav a buddy helping so on can hold and other tightens or make you own stand to lift gpu a tad higher from the work surface..
Plus -tim - to ensure best contact..put a small dot on gpu and base of cooler..that way yo get even better contact.

Vrm/vram seems like heatsink or heatsinks work best unless yove got tons of airflo
