Then I will swap my h100i around so that my pipes will be at the front and then a 120mm blowing from the front and a fan bracket that attach to the gpu to blow directly across the vrm. I also have vrm heatsinks almost like the ones you have now but it came with my card so hope will get to see some great results soon

I'm using 140mm fans with 120mm closed loop radiator(made this adapter myself).

My fans are set to "silent" mode in the BIOS.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I may try and continue to push with 140mm fan but also pull with the 120mm PWM fan(which came with the Sedion) - driven by the video card using this adapter:

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/13314/cab-454/Gelid_Solutions_PWM_Fan_Adapter_for_VGA_Cards_CA-PWM-02.html

Anyway, I currently have nothing on the VRM so I'm still using the computer with the GPU clocks reduced 850mhz just to be safe.

The GPU temperatures are staying in low 60s.

My VRMs are actually staying cool, as I do have the 200mm fan directly over the video boards, but I'm just concerned about pushing it.

I did one pass of 3dmark firestrike pass with GPUS set to 1077Mhz. Could not resist smile.gif

I decided to go ahead and order this:

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/24681/vid-252/Gelid_Icy_Vision_Rev_2_Enhancement_Kit_AMD_R290_R290X_Series.html

after closer examination of the original heatsink and the video card, I'm concerned that I won't be able to make the heatsink from China come in proper contact with everything unless I attach a thin block of aluminum to the bottom of it.

frozencpu already shipped the order and that thing from China probably won't show up for another two weeks anyway.

good luck!

The downside of connecting to the card or the MB would be that in most cases they can't deliver a strong enough current to power the pump at full speed, and these small pumps really do need to run on full speed. Simply use a molex to fan adapter to run it of the PSU directly. For the radiator fans tohugh you can more or less do what you want, I recommend a fan controller, but the MB delivers enough current for these to work fine. The fan on the GPU can be connected to the GPU itself if you so wish as well (really recommended for VRM cooling and more or less required on a 290). Since this is a 290 thouh you should really put some heatsinks on your VRMs if it doesn't have some already. Send me a PM if you need help with these or check out my thread for pointers, you are also more then welcome to ask here as well.

Edit: oh and do be weary about the tube length of the H110 as that may be an issue. The Kraken X60 or X61 both come with far longer tubes if you need an alternative to it. Just something to think about.


Already got heatsinks for both the vrms and vram. As well as a pci bracket to mount a couple of 120mm's blowing directly on to the card(can also have 2 mounted vertically) wink.gif. I'll be using the Sigma Cool bracket.
I also worried about the tube lenght on the h110, but the newer versions actually have longer tubes. If it doesn't fit I'll just make a bracket/fan tunnel.
Anyways I guess I'll get an adaptor so I can connect the pump to my PSU.

Thanks for the input =)

No problem, and in regards to what you have it's all fine, just stay away from the Corsair H75 and H105 as the pump design makes it incompatible with the Sigmacool bracket for AMD cards. As for the tube length... if you have space in top of your case then that is likely going to be the best place if you have short tubes. I barely got an H105 mounted in the front of my case so it's just something to think about anyways. One solution could be to distance the rad from the case with shrouds, that way you will gain a bit more for your length.

I'm not sure about the return policy for the store you bought it in, but if you can do a test fitting in your case then you can at the very least determine if it will be good enough. Depending on the return policy you can send it back and go for the NZXT for the tube length. Just something to consider as they are more or less equal in performance (with the X61 being superior due to the radiator it uses).

I like a bit of DIY so I'll try to make it fit.
Im going to try to fit a h110 in the top for my CPU, and then the h110 in the front for my GPU. tongue.gif

The parts are already at the post office so trying this tomorrow^^

I bought it online so if it doesnt fit I can return it within 14 days anyways:)

i remember reading ages ago about the best 92 mm fan available to help cool the vrms when using the aio mod and i read about the zalman sf2.
i decided to take the plunge and swap out my 80mm fractal fan and purchased the sf2 from a store on ebay for £10

using by backplate and fan attachment i ran a render test from gpuz, i know its not a stress tool or even a decent way of measuring anything however letting it run for 5 mins using each fan gave me a difference of at least 6 degrees Celsius and increasing
the 80mm fan after 5 mins had the hottest vrm reading showing 51c and increasing still
the sf2 after 5 mins had the highest vrm reading at 45c and stopped, in fact this stayed at this from the 2 min mark

i read the results from hwinfo64 but forgot to take print screens but i can honestly say this fan pushes more air and is silent while doing it.

And if you use stock intel cooling fans that comes with the intel heatsink? What about having the Intel stock heatsink just sitting without a fan at the back of the vrm. Maybe if we can do that sort of the temps will drop even more. Maybe even if you can have the intel stock heatsink at the back of the gpu it might make temps a bit lower. Correct me if I'm wrong but if someone can try that it would be great

0493mike did something like that in the Nvidia Mod thread. You could ask him about temps in the thread I suppose smile.gif http://www.overclock.net/t/1203528/official-nvidia-gpu-mod-club-aka-the-mod/6900_30#post_23018311

I was not happy with the VRM temp with just the Geild thing alone...I had some intel fans leftover from my i5 and xeon 1230v3 so I decided to give it a try.

Getting there

For some reason my mobo shows as brown when I use the flash^^

This is obviously a work in progress! Anyways, the h110 had to be fitted onto two 140mm fans(ripped the fans out), to be mounted in the front... H110 mounted in the top, but the 5.25 cage is pressing on it. I think I'll remove it.

Another pic, of the GPU with some heatsinks.

Ok guys. So i have a smart idea to make this easier for me seeing as I can't get any brackets here any time soon or at all. I was thinking of doing this. 'm going to use a cooler master nepton 140xl and here is a picture. Will this work. I just have to work on getting a fan at the back blowing across the card to cool the VRM.




I will use a longer screw and then ssome nuts and washers to keep the cooler from shifting so do you guys think this can work. I'm not worried about how ugly it looks as long as i can have my cooler attached and it does make proper contact its cool.
