Palit GTX 560 OC SLI cooling issues

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi

Can anyone recommend any aftermarket cooling solutions for this card?

My temperatures in games can sometimes rise to around the 90c+ mark

I'm having to lower my graphics settings to keep them cool frown.gif which seems a waste at times!

I want to try an avoid water cooling (for now anyway)!

I have a coolermaster 690 II advanced case (my old case they got even hotter due to a build up of wires) the bottom side fan is a 12cm fan blowing on the cards an the top is a 12cm being used as an exhaust!

I'm currently on holiday so can't upload any pictures of inside my case,

I don't know if I have just set the fans in my case up wrong, or if the stock cooler on these cards is just pathetic,

I can happily answer any questions about my rig if anyone is able to help

Thank you
My PC :)

Antec 620 mod: http://www.overclock.net/t/1203528/official-nvidia-gpu-mod-club-aka-the-mod

Cheapest mod
Best cooling performance mod
Requires not a whole lot of work

You seriously can't beat it. It could also be a IHS problem. I'd remove the cooler and see if the IHS just falls right off. I've heard storied of them coming off when you remove the cooler, sometimes they're poorly glued.

90C is deathly danger
80C is stomach churning feeling
70C is losing sleep at night
60C is poison ivy where you don't want it
30-59C is just right

You got a OC'ed 560. Antec 620 should get you down to <60C! Remove the IHS and your talkin 40-45C load. My old 560 would max at 42C with the 620 on the direct die.
