Alright, I wasn't quite happy with my VRM temps after doing the Red Mod to my cards, so I sat and stared at the case for a while... that's when my awesome Arc Midi R2 case came to the rescue!

There is a horizontal slot above all the other PCI slots, so I took a slot bracket and super-glued a Silent R2-series 140mm fan to it that is aimed directly down on the VRM heatsinks on each card.

The result:

AFTER RED MODDING BOTH GPU'S:
2 x Powercolor 7870XT Myst @ 1100/1500 after a Unigine Valley run, ambient temp is 21C:
GPU1: 42C Core, 86C VRM
GPU2: 42C Core, 89C VRM
CPU (Swiftech H220): 55C

AFTER RED MODDING BOTH GPU'S AND ADDING A 140MM FAN:
2 x Powercolor 7870XT Myst @ 1100/1500 after a Unigine Valley run, ambient temp is 22C:
GPU1: 43C Core, 75C VRM
GPU2: 43C Core, 77C VRM
CPU (Swiftech H220): 57C

So, while I'm still not 100% satisfied with the VRM temps, they're definitely better than they were before!

Looks like this:

Great looking build right there paleh0rse14! I'm guessing you are using Fractal Arc Midi? Easily one of my favorite cases smile.gif Just one question, aren't you afraid of the PCB bending, or am I just seeing things? Otherwise, spectacular work thumb.gif

post #1243 of 3006
would a bit of moisture make a card artefact???
im hoping that that's the issue, the cards working just getting two blocks of white down the screen and then when windows loads it looks like purple tiles
took the card apart and when I took of the bracket from the h60 there was a bit of moisture under it, It wasn't from the pump I think it was from the articlean I told him to use to clean the block 1st.
I didn't even notice it.

also noticed that one of the corners catches a ic so I filled down the corners and there is a small ic in the way of one of the long sides so going to file that out later

Got my VRM's down to 81C max load (Cry3 testing). It's still too high for me, so I might try what paleh0rse did with the 120mm fan closer to the vrm as I currently have a 140mm fan blowing less concentrated air onto them. Btw, sweet build dude. So clean!

I bought these Enzotech heatsinks. This is my 2nd set of Enzotech and I can safely say that they come with the ****tiest adhesive I've ever had to use. Any suggestions on what to use in their place? I have thermal tape but that doesn't stick well either. Perhaps paste?

Anyway, they fit perfectly under the fan and over each vrm. Here are some pics.

Nicely done Hooy! I may check out those heatsinks as well, but the lousy tape concerns me. Let me know if you find a better way to attach them!

You also made me realize that I REALLY need a much better camera... lol
post #1246 of 3006
lol, I was just thinking how well those pics look, DOF is strong so it must be a dslr biggrin.gif Those would have been AMAZING pics if the focus point was at the closest point of the subject (heatsinks) and let DOF blur the image farther down subject, just missed the subject by an inch or so. Not trolling ya wink.gif but just saying biggrin.gif

Yes, I got green and purple spotted tile artifacts when condensation dripped on the back of my 7970.

Ive cleaned it All up and still get it. Put the stock cooler on and still the same put the test gpu in with the card in comp works fine till after windows logo then no display take out the 5870 everything ok. Think maybe solder problems
post #1249 of 3006
A bad cable can present the same issues. Maybe the last time you removed the dvi cable a wire broke in it
post #1250 of 3006
The cable works fine on the tivo box and on the test gpu
The lines are like 3cm wide and go the entire lenth of the screen and are either white or white n green then soon wondows loads screen fully purple
