VRM Cooling on MSI 560 ti 2GB

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi, I just joined here.

Currently I have two 560 ti OC 2GB models in SLI. They have a stock voltage of 1.025V, which seems quite high to me, but they are stable at 1.012 at the factory OC.

I have heard that there is no VRM cooling on these cards, although this site shows that maybe the 1GB model does:

http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/GTX_560_Twin_Frozr_II_OC/4.html


I am not sure where to look on these cards, and maybe the 2GB model is slightly different. There are no reviews of the 2GB model online that I can find.


Would i be able to tell if there is VRM heatsinks without taking the card apart?


And if there is no VRM heatsinks, would it even be advisable to OC to something like 940/1880/2140 @ 1.05V, providing temps : Card 1: 65- 80 Card 2: 60 - 72?


Thanks.

You would look here, you should be able to see if there is a heatsink there without removing the cooler.

If it does not have them, you can and should buy them. They're cheap, so it should not be a big deal.

Cheers thanks, I'll take a look soon, and then I'll report back for anyone else wondering.

Ok, so it looks like there isn't a heatsink on them. But the TwinFrozr heatsink and fan is very close to the VRM area and is probably dissipating the heat from them, maybe that is why MSI did not bother?

Would is still be advisable to get a heatsink for them? They would have to be extremely low profile.

Look at Artic Cooling GPU Coolers..

I forget who it was but there's a guide out there on VRM temp. Apparently they can get upto 120C no problem... toasty! But apparently they're really able to handle high temps...thats why

Yea i suppose with the design of the twin frozr ii and msi i presume know what they are doing and don't want a load of cards RMA'd. They promote overclocking so i suppose as long as temps are 80 or below all should be well?

I advise buying some if you plan on increasing the voltage ever.

Do you or any other guys know of suitable VRM heatsinks that you guys have used yourself, or is it a custom fabrication job?

Thanks
