Yeah the first time I mounted it I didn't get stellar cooling results.

Simply re mounting very carefully(line up zip ties just right and pull them tight with pliers) and finding a good position for the radiator yielded mid 50C results for my GTX 480 (overclocked and overvolted) That's with the stock radiator on the Antec 620 cooler but I used two Yate Loon high speed fans at 7v push/pull.

Anybody else have an issue where the zip ties were too thick to go through the screw holes? Anybody see much of a difference between putting the CPU water block directly on the gpu or just putting it on top the heat plate where the fan goes???

Yep - had to get thinner zip ties smile.gif

I know at Walmart they were advertised as "cable ties" and sold right by the zip ties. They were shorter and thinner, just the right size for this application.

What are you using to cool the memory on the Video Cards?
post #786 of 8621
guys, for the 9 bucks he charges the plate dwood sells is a steal. bolts right up to the card and allows you to put a fan on. none of that stupid zip tie crap. he even includes the screws and if you dont want to use an aftermarket fan then the plate is only 7 bucks.

Thanks Darylrese! I really do want to figure out a better way to mount the rads. And you're probably right about leaving the shrowd on, If I see my VRMs getting too hot I'll have to tear the case back down and put them back on.

I have a 92mm Scythe fan blowing Air down into the gap between the cards. You can see it here

If that doesnt keep everything else cool enough I'll have to try something else.
post #788 of 8621
that fan should definatly help cool the VRM's smile.gif Just keep an eye on the temps but im sure you will be just fine!

Nice work. You could try to make a bracket/mount that holds the radiators off the the rear of the case. You could use the case screws to hold it on or something.

You know what... thats a pretty good idea biggrin.gif I was so gung hoe about having them mounted to the top of the case I just ignored the rear. I'll have to check the thread size of the rads and figure something out. Thanks!
