VRM Cooling on MSI 560 ti 2GB - Page 2

post #11 of 15
There won't be a simple exact fit heatsink for you but look for Enzotech heatsinks and see which ones you think will work best for you. You may have to do a little bit of work on them to get them exactly how you want them but copper is a soft pliable metal.

Simple answer...

MSI started producing 560TI TFII cards WITHOUT VRM cooling and WITHOUT the "stiffening" bracket....

Then they realize that the cards were sagging and that some cards were RMA'd for VRM issues, MSI modded the new 560 (non-Ti) with the bracket and VRM cooling...the latest batchs of Ti are also coming with VRM cooling....

I bought both my MSI 560Ti 1GB cards in April 2011, and at the time, there wasn't any cards shipping with VRM cooling and stiffening brackets..

If you don't OC the cards much, and if your case cooling is fine, there shouldn't be any issue...

Ok, so I had another look, and realised that I actually do have VRM heatsinks on both cards and it is the revised version by using the pics from this thread:

I'll put it down to the fact that I haven't built a PC in years, but good news none the less.


Thanks for the help anyway guys, so how far do you think I could push the voltage to now so that the cards would last a year or two?

you're golden, you got the latest revision cards!!!!!!! Maybe all 2GB cards were made using latest rev??? After all, they came up late.

Maybe all the 2GB cards were.

I started upping the voltage and hit a brick wall at 950/1900MHz and 2250 MHz Memory. I can achieve this at 1.05V anyway so at least it will help the the cards lifespan.
