GTX 570 with Arctic Cooling XTREME PLUS II - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Your case is definitely the problem when it comes to having these temperatures. Add some fans to increase the airflow in your case. Instead of getting that arctic cooler, you should have invested in a better case which would of guaranteed better temps compared to this case. By the way, why is there a PNY fan heat sink on the graphics card pcb?

This link provides detailed information on how to remove the IHS. Removing the IHS could decrease a couple of degrees.

Hi!
You don't believe, but I'm really lucker.

I used to be scared with removing IHS. Before I heard with the IHS (today) i screwed graphics card with the cooling very hard. Few moments ago I unscrewed it and I separated first with second and... IHS was sticked to my Arctic cooling biggrin.gif. Inside, thermal grease ws really dry....
I cleaned main core with alcohol and put on it thermal grease MX-2. Then I firmly screwed XTREME PLUS II with my graphics card. I notice, that core doesn't touch the heatsink so much... I can see no more than half a millimeter interval between them (in this interval is mx-2). The temperature was, when I started computer 45C and went to 41C. I run Windows 7 test (I don't know, but it I had always really hot card).
Now it went to... 76C smile.gif
Measuring program was AIDA64.

It;s looking that: http://postimage.org/image/ba3oat22p/
and that biggrin.gif http://postimage.org/image/vynl3nb1j/

Am I succeed smile.gif?

I am afraid of what will happen when the paste dries .... it will be thinner I think and it won't (i think... unfortunately) stick core and cooling together. Am I right?
I can't screw it harder...
I'm curious, why idle temperature is higher by 7-10C, but stressed is less about 25C?

And the most intriguing question... In few games and in Windows 7 test my graphics card makes strange sounds, like ... scraping on a blackboard or breaking the plastic? I can't describe it.... I thought it was a high temperature, but now is less...

Best regards and thanks,
Atexor smile.gif

P.S. My case is always open for better air cooling. I noticed, that graphics card in stress has 1-2C less temperature than with closed case. So strange...

weird, my GTX 570 idles at 35C and 46C while folding
but then again, i use a custom watercooling setup
maybe you should do that as well?

Maybe... As I said before, I haven't any funds for new Cooling. I think 75C isn't too much (compared to 100C before).

My task/quest/dream is, when I'll buy new computer it will must to have SSD drive (I think about OCZ Vertex 4) and water cooling. Looking at your statements and opinions other people, second goal will be more important smile.gif

So far, what do you think about my new temp. without IHS? And... do you know what are these strange sounds? I thought core or VRM... VRM doesn't seems hot, and core is colder now.

EDIT:
Another temp. test and 87C.
I CAN'T UNDERSTAND THAT!
Have I to live in Antarctica and put this card outside the igloo to make it colder?!

EDIT 2:
"Amateur" radiator is warm (this, which lies on the card... from processor and small 1 fan) and Arctic iscold... Radiator doesn't stick core well I think... I have enough.

What is the room temperature? Like I have told you before, there is barely any airflow in your case. If you were to put your components in a case with more airflow, you would definitely see a difference.

Okay... okay...
Today I removed strange plastic wheels for screws (these - I don't know the name of that):
http://scr.hu/0efw/lpeeu
Also I removed two small radiators, which made my card curve. And the end I screwed at the end of a very, very strong. Aluminium cooling plate winced and...and... idle temperature is 28C!
http://scr.hu/0efw/66a9i

I tested with Windows 7 "Tester" - 37C!!!
I couldn't believe it so I run Unigine Heaven DX11 Benchmark 3.0 with max graphics. Temperature was no more than 44C!
It's impossible! I touched every moment my GTX and was slighty warm.
So I decreased temperature by more than 50C.

I'll test once more with game Skyrim. My card was always hot with them too.
But I am in good thoughts smile.gif

So now it's time for overclocking wink.gif

Yes... I know, not to kill my card. I read topic with that.


EDIT:
God... I overclocked my card:
gpu clock from 732 to 790
Memory from 1900 to 2020
Shader from 1464 to 1580
and voltage to 1V and with Skyrim or 3DMark 11 (extreme graphics) I have no more than 44C. What I done :I
Is it normal to have so low temprerature with this card from "hot series"? Or the sensor is faulty, but... I touched my cad and it isn't hot...

the 500 series arent hot
the 400 series (specially the GTX 480) is the "hot serie"

basicly the 500 series is a better revision of the 400 serie

Hmmmm, I always heard, that 5xx series is hot and gtx 570 is "remaked"/refreshed gtx 480...

So, how does it look from your point of view? Good, or normal temps with air cooling?

Otherwise, do you know any program, in which can I check VRM temperatures? I overclocked my card a little harder and it still not reach more than 45C.
I checked with hHWiNFO64 and GPU-Z, but they only show me voltage. GTX 570 haven't any more sensors except core?


With processor this temps are allright - my oc c2d 8400 to 3,65 has 45C. I can't "feel" a borders/limits of my card. I don't want kill theme, specially I've read how easy to broke it.
Core maybe is cold, but VRM "squeals because of hot pain", and there is so much silicon that do not want to touch to make "poof".
