Ive been playing BF3 like crazy and have had no problems with just the fan blowing over them, you can feel how much air is being threw around down there when you put your hand next to it so it has to be cooling it well. GPU-z only shows core temp

Im not really sure you need them either.

I have a 5770 which is very similar, not having ram-sinks, and it works like a charm, running cool an all.
It really depends though, some card absolutely need them (eg, my 4890).
Dwood, it may be a strange question, but would it be possible for something like this to work with a 5870 ? (out of sheer curiosity)
Thanks biggrin.gif

Temperatures? like 45 degree celsius max, overclocked to 1289 core(yeah its pretty awesome). Yes it works for the 5870

IMO, air on the pcb (mimic the stock cooling) is fine for mem cooling. I ran a 560ti this way for months without even air to the pcb and had no issues. Your overkill with the ram heatsinks and air blowing on the pcb (im ok with overkill-i like it) but remember that unless your stripping off the heatplate your alrighty getting better airflow to the pcb than the stock cooling offered. I understand the concern in regards to pcb cooling but from my experience has show that it can be be done without adding the cost of heatfins. Just thought id throw that in there..........

You are stripping off the heat plate. Which makes contact with the ram chips. Now we are leaving them bare. I'm just having a discussion here. Not saying I am right or wrong. Just don't want to cook something I just dropped $550 on.

I wonder if you put as shim the size of the copper square on the stock cooler. If you could leave the whole black plate on.

These brackets would work with a 580 and an H50 wouldn't it?

The shim would work, Im not sure what it would do to the cooling but I am sure it wouldnt hurt it that bad, just put tim inbetween both

my 620 making a racket like a hdd, i dissconected rad n shook it n heard the water but its still doing it. whats the cause
post #78 of 231
It's a pump thing, various solutions to fix. Check the water cooling section of ocn

temps dont seem to be an issue watchin a film with stock hsf was in 60s when just browsing internet i was at 40-45 now i at 35 browsing 45 watching a movie.
(1 noctua fan in pull) i can get better as a said the mount was hard as the screws kept coming out the holes on the bracket.

ive looked on wc threads and shook the radiator and tilted the case and this helps slightly but then it returns.
ive lowered the pump speed to 11-1200 in the bios and this made it slighty quieter but i had put it back at full speed,
i havent a magnet to try.

someone said to take the card out and shake the card with the pump attached below the radiator

My H70 has never made a noise in the 2 years ive owned it, its been on my cpu and two gpus now. My H100 was silent at first but when changing a ram fan i needed to move the lines and the gargling started. I had to move the waterlines slightly before it went away-two days later. The 620s are known to have noise on some units. A local pc shop has mentioned that most of the 620s they sell are reported to make noise and they are used as cpu coolers in the correct position (not hanging under a gpu), seems its a trait of the 620 units.
