Thats incredible! Which kind of thermal paste is being used here? What speed are the fans at?

Edit: Also, which copper shim did you use and did you lapp it at all?

I'm trying to do this mod with a 7970, dwood bracket, and H60. I have everything installed (with copper shim and thermal paste on both sides, and my temperatures are awful. It was idling at 40C and when I put any usage on the GPU it jumped up to 90 which I immediately shut down. I have no idea what's wrong, I've taken the whole thing apart and checked the copper shim, it is making contact, I don't know what to do. Speedfan indicates that the pump is working, and I can hear it. And during idle if the I turn the pump down I can see the temp creep up so I know the pump is working. I'm at a loss.

I have ssen this before and usually its from the orentation of the radiator becuase if some of the liquid cooliant evaperates or it wasent filled all the way which is common it can cause it to suck air or air bubles which would lower the performance to that of a stock air cooler or worse. Try it and get back to me........thumb.gif.

I love you, rotated the radiator 90° and like magic its working. Idling at 32 and hitting around 60 at full load! Thank you so much, I was really stressing there haha

Doing a 100% GPU usage test gets me temps around 75, fluctuating a bit but never going above 80, is this normal for this mod? Its definitely much quieter than the previous set up (I had a reference card tongue.gif)

Is your card overclocked or overvolted at all? Also, what are your vrm temps?

I feel like I'm not getting very good temps on my 7970 but I could be wrong. I'm using an H80i and I usually run the card at 1.2 volts and it gets into the low to mid 70's. I thought the H80i would perform better so I must be doing something wrong. Part of me thinks I may not have applied the thermal paste efficiently and the other part of me thinks I need to try and find another place to exhaust the heat from my H80i.
