Not nice to hame so many thermal grease layers between waterblock and die. I'm hoping a 2mm thick can help make contact, since the die seems to be a little "higher" than the PCB (can't remember the word in english right now biggrin.gif )

Thanks for the tip, but I'm from Brazil and don't have access to those products here. I'll use something from corsair because of their 5 year warranty and avaiabilty in my country.

What other companies are available? I know Enermax also has a protruding base. Is it only corsair? Cutting those fingers off wouldn't work. There are shims on ebay and shouldn't void your warranty if it's an EVGA card.

Actually, I guess corsair only. They have local 5 year warranty here in Brazil, and that's very important for me. Specially because a watercooler is not something you change every 2 years. I plan on reutilizing it with my next VGAs.

I was pretty much sold for those new Arctic Liquid Freezer. They are VERY thick and have impressive performance. Also, they're cheaper than corsair's. But no warranty here in Brazil is a must for me.

Also, I plan on using Kraken G10 so I have some cooling on the VRMs. So It must be Asetek design.

All that got it narrowed down to 3 asetek gen5 models: H115i, H100i V2 and H80i V2. Performance for the price the H80i is the best bet. The thick 120x49mm rad performs very close to H115i and is even better than H100i V2 if you want it quiet.

I'm pretty sure no asetek cooler will fit between those "fingers", so I'll probably have to use a copper shim to make contact.

Am I'm being too optimistic to expect 40ºC with a H80i on a 280W GTX1080?

Previously on OCN's The Mod (Click to show)
4/9/16
"... sadly it is time to retire them (MSI 570s) with a new replacement: An MSI 970 Gaming!

1280 Mb Vram just doesn't cut it anymore and while my frames were fine (45-60fps) the texture pop in was horrible.

I will end up doing the mod on it and I'll document it and post up eventually as now seeing 72C on my GTX 970 (The Division) makes me nervous even though my 570s used to run 85C (BF3) pre-mod.



I came here to zip-tie and chew bubble gum... and I was out of both... brb!

(Four months later...)


Time to remove those water coolers!

Clean/Repaste/Aircooler (Click to show)



See that spot on both the gpu and the cooler? Bone dry. Both cards had these dry spots, literally dusty surrounded by the sticky thermal paste. While I can't be sure if these were here before I switched, I retested the cards before I took the blocks off to warm them up while in a couple games, the temperatures seemed to be sub 60C.


Back in the light of day!


Bit of discoloration.


Msi Air Cooler... GREAT CONTACT SURFACE MSI AM-I-RIGHT...


I cleaned it up and the second card went smoother.

StickerBS (Click to show)


YO! MSI! Warranty Stickers are soooo 1974 (See Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act)
GTX970Surgery (Click to show)



So I forgot to take pictures, my hands were full of zip-ties.





And its done, my idle is 25C while max seems to be around 47C. Its funny this played out almost exactly the same as the first time I did The Mod: got the parts and waited a few months before doing anything. But I'm happy, the temps on the 970 had been creeping up with the hot weather and I had the solution. Before I swapped I had been getting almost 80C with the fans on auto and my card, as it turned out, absolutely hated overclocking on air. Now it responds to OCs and doesn't crash randomly.

Almost laughably, in 3D Mark 11 it still doesn't score significantly higher than my 570s in their prime. If there had been a way to upgrade Vram I would have done it in heartbeat and kept my cards. They have power, but new games demand more Vram than they had to give.

It should be, but any game that is not sli friendly will suffer and overall memory would be reduced.

I dont think so. If you go with a 240mm I think 40C-50C is very doable. My 980tis right now with pump running 100% but fans on lowest settings I get 45-50C with fans on medium I settle around 47C on average looping 3dmark fire strike. And that is on a 120mm radiator and ziptied gpu blocks lol.

What country are those prices in? I'd like to do a conversion before I consider purchasing anything.

eVGA GTX 1070/1080 Hybrid kit mod for Titan X Pascal

Here is the album of the mod I did to fit the Hybrid kit onto my Titan X (P).

It works great, and looks great.

How does the MSI Gaming X compare to the Zotac AMP! Extreme based on board and components quality? I will eventually be replacing the stock cooler of whichever 1070 I buy with an AIO so I'm contemplating between the two cards.

The MSI has a baseplate that serves as a heatsink for almost all the front PCB components. The Zotac will make me need to install aluminum heatsinks to the vRAM chips and the MOSFETs but that would be no problem for me at all as I've done this with my GTX 670's. I can get the Zotac for $100 less in our country and even has 5 years warranty compared to the MSI which has only 3.

My question is would installing an AIO coupled with individual heatsink to the chips that need it in the Zotac provide me almost the same overclocking capability (and temps) compared to when going with the MSI wherein I only need to install the AIO and be done with it? The AIO that I'll be installing is my old Arctic Cooling Hybrid Cooler from my old card.
