post #6932 of 8626
Ok guys. So i have a smart idea to make this easier for me seeing as I can't get any brackets here any time soon or at all. I was thinking of doing this. 'm going to use a cooler master nepton 140xl and here is a picture. Will this work. I just have to work on getting a fan at the back blowing across the card to cool the VRM.




I will use a longer screw and then ssome nuts and washers to keep the cooler from shifting so do you guys think this can work. I'm not worried about how ugly it looks as long as i can have my cooler attached and it does make proper contact its cool.

That might work. Or you could use a stiffer piece something flat and stiff with either holes or slots. Works pretty well. But I've seen the zip tie method work very well too. I belive its on the OP page.

Hey X, no these are just fuji poly 2mm but they seem to stick well. Havent had them fall off except when I knock them off. Even upside down they hold for along time. Just press them on and I was done. Should probably make something to put a little pressure on them. I remember someone using fan screen with screws that worked well.

I tried with zip ties and i can't get it tight enough. The pump block is not flat so you understand my problem. This bracket is about 1-2CM from the pcb so i won't have to worry about shorting the pcb.

can yo post pic of that with the pump attached..along with it on the gpu..so we can see how it looks ect...
fan mount..if the card has a hole near the rear..you can make a bracket that attaches there and hold the fans..
or better...mod the case sidepanel and add two 140mm fans to blow over the cards...seing your doin intake with 1 of the coolers already..exhuast might be good too on the side panel pulling hot air out.....

guys..would my bottom rad be better in a exhaust setup pulling air out the bottom? or is intake better?
my side fans are pushing cool air in directly to these rads feeding cooler air..
and i was thinking the dumbest thing too chane the fan orientation...

just board atm..looking for smthing to do..got alot goin on but yeah...
hey mike hws it goin bro..

yeah i saw that too..just use appropriate thread and lenght screws and you can screw the back hs and front together pulling each other closer...ok that ddnt sound right...hrhahaha
post #6936 of 8626
He he that did sound funny though. I would think the bottom should be an intake just because cool air is lower th the floor. And we just had another hurricane pass by, lots of rain but little else. Get tired of rain all the time. I've never had to water anything in my yard for the last 12 years.

DiceAir yeap that will work. You might want to concider laping the pump. Thats sanding it flat on like a piece of glass. Maybe start with 200 or 150 grit just to take out the hump then work it down with finer and finer grit till its almost mirror like. I get it down to 2000 grit mostly, then use car rubbing compound for the last. The flatter the better it will transfer heat.
post #6937 of 8626
bud...build a bomb bunker for you and family bro..when theres no storms you can use it as your pc lab of doom...haha.
i was just asking..cause..my side fans supply ample fresh air..so i thaught why not have both rads push air out...i actualy just want to rip it up..and redo it..relocate them afterwards..but cant as of now..my king cpu cooler...is to freakin big to have these in the top..so im just brewing up plans..already got two things goin in my head for the top panel and front..
just gotta get some very strong..thick modders mesh..none of them flimsy ones..i hate those thin mesh..bends way to easy.

Which is the best Nvidia GTX 970 for do this mod?

MSI GTX 970 GAMING
Asus GTX 970 Strix
Gigabyte GTX 970 Gaming1
EVGA 970 GTX ACX 2.0
Other?

I am planning to do the mod similar to my Asus GTX 680 reference.


It's a Corsair H60 2013 edition modded with Akasa Piranha fans (in photo uses 2 Corsair H60 stock fans)


* I forgot to place heatsinks to VRAM before take picture. tongue.gif

I am looking for with a VRM temp sensor ideally and helps to do this mod with great overclocking potential.

I would say any card that has preinstalled VRM cooling would be preferable. Ofcourse better factory components would also help. Other then that I have no clue as no card would be really bad for it as far as I know.

I dunno about VRM sensors (I don't think any nVidia cards have had them for a looooooong time) but Gigabyte is probably your best bet - comes with VRM heatsinks (I think MSI and EVGA do as well, ASUS does not) and also has a backplate (only aftermarket of those listed that does). thumb.gif
