I'm quite happy with this card! Maybe some heatsinks on the memory chips and that'll give me some piece of mind.

Is it only the Asus gtx 670 that doesn't have heatsinks on the vram? I thought vram chips are supposed to handle very hot temps?

Some other cards don't have memory heatsinks on them. Generally stock clocks memory doesn't get too hot but I guess 7GHz memory and up does... I'll definitely add some heatsinks soon. I've gotta pull the card out and cut the heatsinks to fit since the MOD doesn't quite give you room for full size heatsinks on them. I think I'll mix epoxy and ceramique paste for the bonding agent.

The Gigabyte 5 40mm fan card has memory heatsinks build in with the vapor chamber plate and from overclocking reviews, i've seen that cooler memory overclocks higher....

Which gtx 670 does have memory heatsinks? And what temp is considered hot for memory chips?

Is the MOD that you are talking about the one with water blocks? Why do you need to do this for the asus gtx 670?

The gigabyte board has mem sinks:

Most don't have heatsinks, but the other gigabyte 680 does have heatsinks for it...not the 670. whops...

Yes, Antec 620 mod aka "The Mod"...


Card is out of case, I only have to sand down 2 of the 4 heatsinks, but the only downside to the backplate. I think I have a thick enough thermal pads to get the memory chips on the top of the PCB to connect to the backplate. So we'll see....

I appear to be stable at 1293MHz core and +650memory sofar. Pretty darn good overclocker I must say....

Yeah, even went so far as to restart the pc to make sure everything gets cleared out

So without modding, the gigabyte gtx 670 is better than its asus variant?

Hi OCN !
I've a strange problem with starting Heaven Bench 3.0 .
Before i changed to the 670 i had a 570 which it worked flawlessly .
So I've tried running it on stock and OC'd settings and tried different versions of the nvidia drivers and I get the same errors everytime no matter what my settings are.

Can’t set video mode

Direct3D11 error: 0x087A0001

D3D11AppWindow::create_content0: CreateSwapChain0: failed Engine::video_restart0: can’t set 1920x1080 fullscreen video mode

Don't use custom. pick 1 of the pre-sets. You might be trying to run a resolution different than the desktop setting, and so windows is asking you to confirm the resolution change, but its behind heaven and you can't see it to confirm.


Disable any extra monitors and set the desktop resolution to the same resolution you are going to run the bench at.
