On the same note, will the Accelero Hybrid really work on a 1070? I have the same setup and will be upgrading to a 1000 series GPU when prices normalize.

Yes i was asking for LGA1155.

As for 1070 I will never ever use gpu water cooling again, cooling VRMs are pain in the ass with these. I will stick with a great model like asus strix etc.

Does the use of a copper shim with good quality thermal paste on both sides reduces the cooling capability compared to not having a shim between block and gpu?

Simplifying: does adding a shim make temps higher then no shim?

I think that's why MSI's new Pascal lineup is the best balance: great air coolers, but still retains VRM and VRAM heatsinks if you add an AIO CLC.

But, haha, I'm still gonna throw a 140mm fan over the card, just in case....

Just get a card that has full cover "frontplate" like GamingX or FTW. Those let only the GPU uncovered. I believe that way VRM is cooled even better because you throw some cold air on it. If you have stock cooler the only air it gets is the hot one after it passed through the heatsink.

While it might have beefier power delivery (but how much is that helping so far?), it lacks VRAM cooling after you remove the heatsink.

Something like this would be perfect for the mod. A full plate helping to cool both VRM and VRAM

Right? MSI's is pretty darn close, but it doesn't look as clean. However, it also doesn't have those fingers near the die, which might interfere with the coldplate touching the die.

Random question: how insane do I need to become to use CLU on a GPU die? People use it on CPU dies all the time, right? I've heard some people just putting electrical tape around the die, just in case.

What I'm more worried about is removal: I've heard anecdotes that CLU is a little "sticky", so when you try to remove it, there is a slight worry of ripping the die off the PCB. Is that just a scary horror story or is there some truth to that?

Yes, those fingers around the GPU will interfere, a shim must be used on it. Does it lowers cooling capabilities? (the shim)

But it looks too darn sexy

Oh whoops! I was looking for that question earlier, but I couldn't find it--I thought it was in another thread for some reason, haha.

Hmm, in a theoretical sense, yes. Nothing conducts heat perfectly, so the more things you have between the heat source and the heat sink, the slower heat will move through.

However, in a practical sense, it's minimal, from what I've heard. As long as you add paste between all metal layers, it should get you--I'd reckon--90%+ of the performance you'd get without a shim, especially if you have a nice copper shim with good paste.
