As you can see im pretty paranoid about the VRMs heating up.
do you guys think i am good? or should i get heatsinks for them?
if so can u guys link to which ones i should use?
i was also thinking about using the stock metal heatsink but if u look at the 8th picture there are 4 little stands id need to pound or dremel flat for the h60 to make contact with the gpu.
if i can successfully cool the vrms sustainably in some method for this card, i will do my second next.

oh and here are the fantastic results =D

gonna push for more once i know my VRMs wont explode lol!

ANY FEEDBACK OR TIPS WOULD BE GREAT! THANKS GUYS!

it look really good, congrats and +rep for you.

You should look at my 560ti/H70 mod as its like looking into a mirror with your card. I left the heatplate on the card, it covered the whole back end and the cooler mounted to the heatplate. This allowed for the Heatplate to act as a larger surface for cooling those parts back there. I did not run with any cooling and i ran with the shroud on the card still to retain the look of it all. If your heatpads are still good and at some point in the future you were to redo the TIM, remount the heatplate and put the pump to the heatplate, try to put the shroud back on and see what you think. wink.gif

Congrats, your the newest member of the club now go and sign up in the mod club thread for your place in the records thumb.gif

i would have done that in the beginning but if i kept the heatplate my h70 wasnt able to mount onto the gpu die.

if you look at this picture, that is the area the h60 block would cover and those 4 circles are protruding a decent 1/2 cm so i cant seat the block flush against the gpu die.
id need to dremel them flat or pound them flat w/ a hammer. if i could mount the heat plate i wouldnt be worried about the VRMs and more particularily, the mosfets.
im thinking of picking up these atm:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835708012
do those seem adequate to cool the mosfets? im not too worried about the inductors or capacitors as they didnt have any kind of active cooling even before my mod, to start.
do you also think the memory should be cooled?

so i ended up cutting off the mosfet sink part of my 560ti heatplate and bolted just that on.

do you guys think i need the active air over the heatplate?
do the mosfets on gpu's get hot at all?
i need some help with this anyone who can give info.
+ REPS!

Yes VRMs do get hot and with what you have there I would want at least a fair amount of airflow on it, so either powerful front fans that will reach it, or a side fan, or the fan there as you have it now. If you wanted to get some better heatsinks for the VRMs then you should be able to cut these to fit and just have them hang on with the thermal tape alone. You'll want to measure for yourself and decide if they would work for you, but a big chunk of copper like that would be an improvement from what you have. You would have to cover the 12 vrms in a row for the core and also the 3 or 4 above them as well, those are for the memory. Also remove the thermal tape from your VRAM chips, if you don't have anything attached to it you are better off leaving them bare (bare VRAM is much more common than bare VRMs on cards of this power level).

i ended up ordering these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835708012 for the VRM mosfets.
do you think i need to cool the memory?
post #8 of 27
No I don't think you need to cool the memory, but as I mentioned if you aren't going to attach a heatsink of some sort to them then take the thermal tape off of them.
