Thanks! +rep
I'd like to buy one of those brackets, but since I live in a country where bringing anything from outside is a nightmare (Brazil, yes) and my parents would probably bug the hell out of me for buying this (it sucks to depend on them), I'm thinking on adapting an existing bracket that already comes with a CLC.
Do anybody know what is the easiest one to mod? How about performance? Or are all CLC's kinda the same?

i don't like debt i couldn't borrow money off anyone, id rather struggle than ask.
ive got money saved up but that's to get moved out my girl friends house into our own.

sub contracting has its pros in that i dont have to wait for it all to cut and so forth and they help me with the cad drawings ect and the painters have there own equipment but the draw back is if i want a sample it costs just as much for a couple than it does for a small bulk order.

the best thing having a machine for me would be able to prototype new ideas ect, ive contemplated speaking to a few companies to see if they would lease time with their machines if i supplied the drawings and materials ect for prototyping i asked one local to me and they laughed

Well we could definitely talk. tongue.gif

Yesterday I took my 780 ti apart and got really, really sad. Such a sexy shroud... But once I do the mod, it'll be useless since it doesn't have dedicated VRM cooling. All heat pipes run from the GPU. Well, at least it does have a sexy shield.

i know its expensive.my brother in law had all those type of equipment..even bigger..had a masjien that could literaly press/cut/mold..any sort of metal..shape and size.
they manufactured parts for oil rigs..he currently works with his brother..they design/make the tools etc for hardcore masjiens and above mentioned..so i know its expensive..

even a peint sized press or lazercutter is a fortune..and to lease/rent it ends up being more expensive smtimes..

anyhow..was just a thaught..

I RMA'd my original H60 and received the updated version H60 from Corsair. (RMA'd because of increasingly loud grinding noise from the pump).
Anyway, I have an H80i for my CPU so I decided to sell the H55 I had to my friend and use the H60 instead, knowing it wouldn't be as easy as the asetek design.

Here is my work log per say. Just in case people want to see the steps I took to make sure I had the cleanest mod to my own ability (which is mediocre at best)


My old but reliable GTX 570 and new H60 from RMA.


Unboxing and getting ready!


The unit itself


GTX 570 disassembly


Vapor Chamber removed


Outlined where I needed to cut to make cooler fit. Dremel time!


Did not know the heatplate was made out of metal....lol thought it was made out of plastic, but I guess that's good news to me. It took me a bit longer than I anticipated because of it.
Regardless got it done.


Fitted back onto the graphics card


Used stock AMD bracket and a few zipties to hold the cooler on tight. Did not budge at all when I tried to rotate it. Guess I was lucky.


Another angle


Prepping shroud for dremel. Removed EVGA logo where it is being cut.


Cut out complete.


Hopefull it fits...


It fit =)


Hot glued the evga logo back to cover cutout.


Giving it a test run to make sure I don't have to reseat it. I did not have to reseat it.


Had to move my h80i to the front of the case since the h60 tubes weren't long enough to allow me to place it anywhere without the shroud getting in the way.


Glamour shot #1


"The Mod" complete.


My temperatures-
Furmark 1920x1080 for load testing for 12-15 minutes. I forgot how long.

Before "The Mod":
Idle: 40c
Load: 72c

After "The Mod"
Idle: 27c
Load: 39c

When I came back from a beer and smoke break to check the load temperatures I laughed out loud because of how ridiculously cost efficient this mod is.
Glad I took the time to research the exact method I wanted to go with rather than just plunging head first.

The only modifications I did to finish this mod was cutting the heatplate and shroud to accommodate the h60. Everything else was provided to me by Corsair wink.gif
I hope more people do this!
