post #2091 of 3006
Can someone draw cirles on everything I should apply fugiboy thermal tape to? Also does it matter if the heatshrinks i order are slightly largers or lessar than the chips they are covering with fujiboy? would be most appreciated. This is my xfx 7870 with housing off of it. I plan on running a h60 mod with all the neccesary chips fujiboyed and heatsink'd. You can just draw circles around everything I need to focus on and i would appreciate your help so much. Also any recommendations will help. IE should i use a copper shim?

Thank you so much.

More pics of the 7870, just need to know what chips need heatsinked. I have a huge 200mm side fan and a pci slot fan with upto two fans blowing on the chips, and one more fan attacked to the H60 bracket mount. Just need to know what to focus the cooling on and what chips to apply the fujiboy and heatsinks too. Below is a pic of the card with and w/out stock cooler. Thank you!

Hi guys. I know I am not really doing the red mod. I am just adding my GPU's to my loop. The problem is because they are non reference cards I can't get full cover blocks for them. So I will be doing GPU cooling only with universal blocks(Basically like the Red mod anyway). So what that means is that I am putting RAM sinks on my RAM and VRM's like many of do. I would just like to know which would be better RAM sinks for my GPU's? I bought the one set cause I planned to do water ages ago but never got to it. Lost the first set Then ordered my WC stuff for my cards (including new RAM sinks) and now I found the old ones! rolleyes.gif

So I have these black Aluminium ones.


And these VIZO pure copper sinks that are a bit smaller.


Here are the two types next to one another. As you can see the copper ones look a bit smaller. Would the fact that they are copper make up for their lack in size? I dunno. Opinions would be great! thumb.gif



The copper ones do have an adhesive on them. But I think I will replace that with Arctic Thermal Adhesive.

Oh and I will have active cooling for the ram sinks as well.
I got me PCI fan cards to blow onto the cards to give air flow to the sinks. (I cant figure out how to ghetto mod the 92mm fans from the cyclone coolers onto the cards after the water cooling to help with the VRM and RAM cooling. So I opted for the easy way out.)

Wish me luck .... gonna attempt 2x R9 290's with Seidon pumps and Arctic heat sinks whilst making a custom loop using three of the for-mentioned pumps (one on my 4770k) with 3x 120mm, a 240x120 & a 280x140 rads in my Corsair 750D all without making a mess.


Like I said .... wish me luck. biggrin.gif

Water Performer 2.0 strapped on to an R9 290. A few initial problems, but it all went fairly well overall.
However, I'm still missing proper VRM cooling. This hasn't been the biggest issue so far, the ambient airflow seems to keep them cool enough under most conditions, but if I have any intent of pushing this card at all, I'd like to have the cooling properly rounded out.

So, to the people here, would anyone be able to recommend some proper heatsinks? I've looked around and the best I've managed to find are the Enzotech MOS-C1 C1100's: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835708011, but I have no frame of reference on how well they'd work here.

Looking around, most other solutions involve grinding/cutting down to size larger VRM heatsinks, which is metalworking I'm not exactly confident with, and would rather avoid.
So, any thoughts?

Hey guys. Waiting for a G10 bracket to arrive but the howling noise of my old, and kindly donated, 7970 was driving me nuts so I had a go at the ghetto Red Mod with zip ties in the mean time until my order arrives.

I "decapsulated" the GPU as getting a shim delivered here is a pain in the ass compared to a two minute job with a sharp knife and a steady hand which has given me direct pressure between the H55 CLC and the GPU but using the zip ties only it's hard to get a good amount of pressure. I'm happy with the silence until the bracket arrives though and I'll post updated temps and pics when I install it.





Ambient 26c, idle 30c, load 65c. Expect lower temps when get rid of these zip ties =P
post #2097 of 3006
Make sure to cool VRMs, otherwise you'll start getting BSOD when pushing the card. When bracket arrives, don't over-tighten it, you might crack the die, since you removed metal frame around it. You don't really need an insane amount of pressure, proper zip ties work just fine.

Running my XFX 280X cooled by Zalman LQ-310 using Pulse Modding bracket. Gonna submit some photos later, when my GELID VRM heatsink arrives.

Also would like to test the pump/waterblock connected to VGA fan connector instead of motherboard one. Anyone tried that already?
post #2099 of 3006

I thought I saw it done somewhere in this thread, but I cant remember for sure.  It should work with this adapter for the GPU mini connector.

In my experience it's better to leave liquid cooling on constant fan speed (low if you're into silent PC, high if you're performance junkie). Temperatures are different with liquid cooling and do not correspond to setpoints for stock air cooler.

I leave pump on max speed and fan on low speed. If pump is noise, dial it down a bit too, if it bothers you.
