MSI GTX560ti 448 TFIII/PE modified to Apogee XT Double Deuce WAR edition.

TFIII cooler was good but not good enough. devil.gif

Nobody makes a full cover VGA block for this card so I took action.

Before.

As always I had a good time this water cooling project.

Since I had an Apogee XT sitting around I modified it to fit on my video card. I also ported the top part of the block out to help increase flow. Swiftech did the same thing with the block on the 2nd version model of the Apogee Xt.

Photos from the project.

Don't those liquid metal TIMs eat through aluminum? The unisink you mounted the VRM block to is aluminum.

No. It's IC diamond. Just diamond dust.

Ah my mistake, I'm not familiar with IC diamond and in the pic due to the spread and how shiny it is it looked just like those liquid metal TIMs. IC diamond looks good though after looking into it I may try it out, you like it?

IC diamond is the most dependable low temp TP I have used. I've used many over the last 5 years and like IC Diamond the best.

With my voltage maxed at 1GHZ on core with an ambient temp of around 22C it idles at 25C and peaked at 34C during Kombuster benchmark.

ok i have a question if we found a full block and it rested on the GPU and the black heatsink on the card would that not work for a full block since it would cool down the complete black heatsink if i am correct?

A proper fitting full VGA water block would not need the stock heat sink. You wouldn't want to put any full VGA block on a video card unless it was made for it because the wrong design could kill the card.

Any difference in OC from air to water?
Also you have a power edition, you can change the voltages using a modified afterburner, you dont need to modify the bios. With my 460, i am allowed only +100mv, but with modified afterburner i can go all the way to + 500. I tried +220 and was able to hit higher ocs, so its not just numbers.

Anyway u can use nvidiainspecter, get the voltages to 1.1 with it, and then open AB and get a +200mv, that would be enough on water.

I haven't had time for over clocking yet. Can you please hook me up with the modified version of AB to increase my voltage without flashing the BIOS?


Before I think the problem with over clocking was with not enough Voltage. I could get to about 1020mhz/1950mhz with stock max voltage plus the extra with the nvidia spector adjustment. At that voltage the card was getting near 70C with the stock heat sink. Earlier today I had time to play UT3 for a little over and hour and card did not get hotter than 38C with max volts available and speeds at 1020/2300. Big difference I have noticed so far is that game play is super smooth and instant reaction on movements. In UT3 I felt like the guys were a little bit in slow motion and I was able to kill and dodge much better. Another big difference is that now I can put my memory speed to 2200mhz with the clock at 1020mhz and everthing is super smooth and stable. So memory/GPU is working better with lower temps. Loving the game play.


I would be very pleased if the MSI AB software modified will increase my voltage. Please share. cool.gif

Thanks goes to those that have lent out some knowledge and work in helping to over clock this beast. I have passed a few benchmarks at 1.1GHZ. Working on a few air cooling tricks and some chilled loop water to help push this card into the present world record books at HWbot.org. Snorkle.gif

Still working on getting to 1.1GHZ.

Just got the #1 GTX 560 ti 448 spot in the world at HWbot.org for 3dMark11 with a score of P7954.
