I'd cool the memory. Do you have any idea at what they're getting to under load? The stock card had cooling for memory and now you have none, other than air blowing over them... you might want to seriously consider it. I've read VRM's getting upto 120C but I'm not so sure on memory? I've NEVER been able to find a definite answer on memory max temp...

Search amazon, VR001 VR002 VR003 or VR004. Those kits are from arctic cooling. They're for the accelero plus cooler but they'd work for you

This is why on the zotac 560ti i left the heatplate on. The pump overlapped the heatplate buy about 1cm on all sides. I think it helped to cool the heatplate in as so also cooled what the heatplate was cooling. I had no fans on the card to cool it and i left the shroud on to which farther reduced the airflow to the pcb. I had no issues with overclocking or artifacts while using the card this way. The card was rock solid for months before switching it out for my 580.


Thats just me though, do at your own risk as always.

ill look into cooling the memory. although i dont find it dire. unfortunately i cant tell my VRAM temp because the pny 560ti doesnt have a sensor for it; or at least afterburner gives no readout of VRAM temp. alot of cards however, dont have the memory cooled. you can even buy memory itself for your motherboard with no heatsinks (even tho most do buy them with). i dont think the amount of watts im pumpin into the mem would affect it negatively but better safe then sorry right? i am not getting the accelero plus tho. this h60 is netting me superb core temps atm and buying that wouldnt make sense at this point. thanks for the input tho i am def. cooling my VRAM now

as you can see i left the heatplate on for the VRMS and more importantly, the mosfets.
i just wasnt able to mount the whole thing AND use my h60.
i have these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835708012
on the way for my mosfets tho, and after im done with that ill have 5 left.
unfortunately i have 8 memory modules lol i think ill order a small heatsink for the 3 left over lol

so i should be getting my copper heatsinks in pretty soon.
I just want someone who knows to verify that I have everything located correctly on my card for when I apply them.
450
red=mosfet, blue=ramdac, green=vram modules.
i plan on just cooling my mosfets but do i need to cool the ramdac and vram?
also, what about the inductors and capacitors for the VRMs?
im assuming only the mosfets really NEED cooling right?
thanks guys and as always +REP! thumb.gif

The red areas (the VRMs) are a must cool, glad to see you found the couple of VRMs off on there own. The green is a low priority IMO plenty of 560tis leave there VRAM chips bare from the factory without issue, even cards that allow VRAM overvoltage like the MSI 560ti hawk, leave their VRAMs bare, so I wouldn't worry about those. The blue ramdac, I don't know enough about what sort of heat they put out and how they perform at those heat levels to tell you definitively one way or the other, but there are also 560tis bare as well so I would guess that they'd be okay to leave bare as well but I'm not positive. Oh and GL HF with the heatsink install and post pics up afterwards. smile.gif

thanks! i definitely will! thumb.gif

i paid 57+10 for the h60+copper sinks.
you cant even get a good gpu block for that. redface.gif
let alone all the other stuff you'd need for a decent WC setup lol
so far i still get 1000mhz on 1.075v and top out at 47c thumb.gif
gonna push for more once i get good cooling on the VRM mosfets devilsmiley.gif

oh and i buy most of my stuff from a retail store that i work at and i just return the stuff for store credit later any time i want to. its great lol
thats what i did with my other 560ti i returned it for store credit and got the evga 560ti on order.
only im just gonna sell it once i get it cuz it will be new and unopened and will fetch alot on ebay biggrin.gif

it would be very difficult to justify a full on waterbuild when this build is meeting the persons needs for $60. Another plus for the mod, its cheap wink.gif
