Cooling an Evga 610 GT, has anyone done it? Am I the only one?!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have been searching for quite some time now for people who do some extreme cooling with their Evga 610GT GPU. But it seems I'm the only one?

Short story,
Bought my first upgrade to my computer this past Sunday and got me a finally off MOBO GPU. I have been wanting to build one for a while buy needed something to play with while I wait. So I got me a brand spanking new $30 Evga 610 GT.

Monday night I decided it was to slow (I got bored) so I went to graters and picked up some dry ice. I then removed the fan from the heat-sink and tossed the card in the freezer to bring it down to a lower temp (from 60C to 0C) then used a little dry ice to get it a little colder before startup. I then plugged her into the MOBO turned on my machine and started my bitcoin miner (High GPU load) to generate some heat.

It was easy to see that I could melt through a pound in about an hour. Now mind everyone I was placing the dry ice directly on-top of the heat sink, and occasionally spraying with duster to get the snow off.

I made a lot of condensation which after a while forced me to shut down seeing as the condensation was on the other-side of the board now!

end of story

Currently I am searching to see if anyone has done any sort of dry ice pots with this small and crappy of a GPU. I just want to perfect my technique before I do it with something worth $500+ so I am looking for first proper technique to remove condensation and proper technique to insulation. Also what a dry ice pot needs to be made out of.


---- MODS: please move this to dry ice cooling section if needed, but I saw 40x more people in this forum at the time of posting and was hoping for a quicker response.

And why would you want to ever try to use third party cooling on a GT card?

For the lulz, I just wanted something fun to do while I am waiting for my real parts.


And you say "use third party cooling on a GT card" like its bad to do? What is your connotation?

Why don't you just poor mineral oil all over it hurr durrrr.
God, what's with you and the troll threads today http://www.overclock.net/t/1359988/soon-to-be-mineral-oil-cooled-rigs-give-me-poitners-prior-to-building-here-are-my-plans#post_19274332

Wrong side of the bed this morning Eagle?


Why do you think I am trolling? I'm just trying to get some help.

And if I were trying to troll, why spend the time taking pictures and asking question about what I am doing? Why not jump on and post pictures from spongebob square pants, double post, and flame?



EDIT:

I mean what are you trying to say?
- No one does this because it is not worth it on such a small crappy GPU?
- You think I am stupid for doing this because I am wasting money or something?
- I am going to hurt myself?
- You don't know how to respond properly and to let me know that "No no one has done this or thought about it, stop looking to see if people have"

EDIT:

At least people on this forum are nice to new comers and novices. Otherwise I'd be pissed.

This pretty much, the 610 dont have much going for it, 64 bit memory bus for one will limit getting much out of that card

I'm just playing with you because you seemed to be able to handle it in the mineral oil thread. Btw sorry for double post.
Anyway, it isn't worth it, it's just a gt 610, the amount of power that thing puts out shouldn't be enough to be need very much cooling at all.
