the cost of installing wcooling against this is proabably 5-10 c max
using the mod its easier cheaper and can be taken off n transferred to another card.
ive just used evga oc scanner to test my shader unlock and using the 20% offset or i had artifacts i get temps no higher than 45C on all 4 temps the gpu reports after 10 mins.


your temps though are great without seeing a pic of the setup we couldnt reccomend anything different exept maybe some better fans and use exhaust instead of intake.

just ask them to see which one it is n compare to your pcb

Guys, I fitted an H60 on my reference 7970 using Dwood's bracket but after the install, There is no temperature reading. (in afterburner and in CCC, it doesn't show temperature. I can still read the VRM temps from GPU-Z, but that's it. What could it be?
post #829 of 3006
hi people, sorry the bad English biggrin.gif
I have a question for experienced users here
I own a MSI HD 7970 lightning, so I got the idea to modify the cooling,
because the factory does not satisfied
I saw you perform it, but I plan to put Cooler Master Seidon 120M
so I wonder if anyone has experience with the above kit for cooling
Thanks in advance ... thumb.gif

@D77ooM
did your card require a shim? I heard they have a tendency to shift around when people do the mod if it needed to be used. Maybe someone with that card can update.

@isajlovic
There was one person who used a seidon but i cant remember who it was. I dont think it was a 7970.
I had one but i let a friend use it.
I just dont know enough about the pump flow and how well the setup works to suggest it for that nice card.
its always easier to do a mod when someone before you has done it and you can ask specific questions.
For that reason alone i would look back in the posts to find exactly what they used for reference.
It may save you a headache in the long run.

There are different thickness radiators in some of the kits that most of use used. I do remember thinking the seidon was pretty small but the person who used it seemed happy with the results .. it all depends on what card he used it on and how much it was overclocked.
Not to mention any issues they might have had and final temps

I would use at least a 620 or 920 but thats me.
Either way get fans with good static pressure for the push side at a rpm or sound level that you will be satisfied with.
There are lots of suggestions in the prior posts.

good luck .. i wish i had that card to play with.. its on my list of things i want to get.
