[Official] NVIDIA GPU Mod Club - AKA "The Mod" - Page 838

post #8371 of 8629
I did this to my GTX 1080 AMP! edition and was able to OC it to 2190-2202 MHZ Using a Kraken G10 bracket and a kraken x41, load temps are in the high 50s and idle in the 30s.

Sorry if I'm late to the party and this has already been answered but... I'll ask anyway. This is a big thread and I'm not reading all of the posts in it.

So.... Has anyone created/written a tool to modify the bios on nVidia Pascal cards yet? Is anyone doing custom bios modifications for Pascal yet? I'm thinking of buying one in a couple months, and wondering what we can do with it.

Specifically, has anyone tried writing out modified voltages and power and thermal limits to pascal bios's and does it increase overclocking vs stock bios?

I don't know where else on OCN to ask this. It seems like a logical place here in this thread.

So you know, this is not a BIOS modding thread....It's a specific thread about attaching a CLC cooler to your graphics card....As a heads-up, regardless of how many pages a thread has, there is always the option to use the "Search This Thread" function on OCN.... thumb.gif

Now I feel like an idiot. Well I'll try somewhere else.. sorry to bother you all.

No worries....I could be wrong, but as far as I know, there isn't even a BIOS modding tool available for the 10-series Nvidia cards yet - which is pretty much a prerequisite for modding the BIOS of a Pascal card.... If you want to check on it, then you can always Google for a "Pascal BIOS Modding Tool".... biggrin.gif

Side note: you can pretty much always tell what a thread is about by reading the first post of the thread.... thumb.gif

I read the last 30 pages and didn't find anything. Forgive me. frown.gif Butttt, if the AIO has the tubes coming out of the top and it's circular and it uses a "floating" bracket mount (where a bracket goes on the socket first and the AIO is mounted on top of it)....

Will The Mod work, with zipties? I already checked the GPU COOL bracket with Richie: no go. frown.gif

the old bracket that richie had could have worked as you could have placed it between the tubes, but since the new one covers the entire top that one is a no go. So I can understand why you were shot down there. As for if the zip tie mod will work... absolutely, in fact from what I can see you actually have at least 2 ways of fitting it to the card with zip ties. the only factor that could really hinder the zip tie mod is if the cooler was to wide so that it covers the GPU mounting holes, in which case I have seen people mount in other holes on the card. Weight may also be an issue, but if it's the one you posted a picture of then I doubt that will be an issue.

Of course I can't guarantee anything, because I honestly don't want to be blamed if for some reason it does not work.

Edit: form the looks of it you may also be able to modify the mounting system that came with the cooler as well, but for that you would need the a drill with a betal bit as well as perhaps a hacksaw.

Hahaha, no, no, it's OK. I know we're all just helping each other with the knowledge we have: no mod is guaranteed, hehe.

Yeah, the old bracket was perfect, but sadly it's gone out of style / production / both. OK: so, the zip ties are are used instead of standoffs (to prevent the metal bracket from touching the PCB)?

Not entirely sure what you mean, but if you were to use zip ties to fit it to the card then there is really two ways of doing it:

- Method one: the classic Asetec mounting, meaning you fit a zip tie around the block and run the zip ties through this loop so that they stick through the GPU mounting holes. Then you just use the lock mechanism from a few other zip ties to fit it to the back of the card like lock regular nuts on a bolt.

- Method two: The simple cross shaped mounting method. Here you would just strapp some zip ties through the mounting holes and on to the top of the card where the block would be mounted. Then place the block under those and finish the loop on the other side of the card. repeat for the rest of the holes around the card. at the end you should have two loops going through the card and nicely fitting the block upon the core creating a "cross" shape on top of the core with the zip ties.

As for how you would go about modifying the mounting plates that came with the cooler... you just have to obtain the distance between the screw holes on your card and cut out a nice piece of quadratic paper in that size. then you put it on the plate and mark each corner for drilling. next is just to fit it to the card with 3mm nuts, discs and bolts (just remember to use plastic discs on the side where the nuts would hit the card).

Ohhhh, OK, I understand now. I was unsure if the bracket could touch the PCB, but it won't because of the zipties. And that cross-shaped mount sounds perfect. I feel slightly more confident with it, in comparison to method one. Thank you for writing that up; +rep!

When I get all the parts in, I'll post up some pictures here. biggrin.gif
