Cooling the Back of the GTX 580's VRM?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
okay so my 580 is liquid cooled and the VRM just is a bit too warm to keep up so my question is. Is there any product out there that will mount to the back of a GTX 580 and cool the VRM off (cooling the GPU area would be nice too but is un-needed because i max out on the GPU temps as 55C)

I really don't care if it is a liquid cooler or a air cooler so long as it works

U have the antec 620 mod? I take it you don't have a full waterblock? I'd just make sure there's a good heatsink on the VRM's then get yourself a nice powerful 80-92mm fan and just have air on it, they should be fine if your giving them plenty of air.

Hope that helps! thumb.gif

oh pffffffffffffff I didn't realize u said BACK! I've got some aluminum heatsinks glued to the PCB with epoxy. As long as they're not connecting any soldered connections you should be fine. Yea the PCB does get quite hot, although with mine overvolted to 1.087V it only gets upto 60C on the PCB. And VRM's I'm told and read, can withstand upwards of 120C+ temps..... Do you know your VRM temps?

no i don't however when doing some heavy overclocking (for my card at least) at 1.15V i will experiance throttling where the card will downclock for a bit then go right back up... EVGA says its the VRM overheating
