What's the "AMD Mod"?
similiar to the geforce mod where you take a watercooling kit for a cpu like the 620 or H50 and back then before someone made custom brackets they used zip ties to secure it on the GPU, but someone on OCN created custom brackets so it'll give even disturbution of pressure to the GPU core compared to the zip tie method which could have a uneven disturbution of needed pressure for the contact to be optimal enough to cool the GPU core itself.
The Mod was extremely popular with the GTX 480 due to the 480 being extremely hot around 100c-103c under extreme load, but when The Mod is applied it drops considerable to very good temperatures like 60-70 or lower sometimes depending on fans used and how good the air flow in your system is. consider it as a non-technical way of cooling compared to a full custom waterloop where you got to piece it all just right and have the water and additives for it to work as it should and also don't need to drain it every 4-6 months because of the water and additives going really bad and not become efficient for heat transfer.
