Thanks. I know it still needs a lot of finishing touches and rearranging but I really wanted to post some pics.

I had so much trouble with the o-rings on the bridge. They give you round o-rings and the groove they go in is oval and it took me forever. Then my last 2 compression fittings got kinda ruined so I had to use those ugly barbs with clamps. I have to get 2 more monsoon fittings.

I do have a big OC that seems stable as well (1241 core), so that obviously doesn't help with the temps either.

Besides, it was pretty cheap to buy all the stuff needed to do this. I think it's also safe to say if I didn't know what I was doing, I would have probably bricked the card already.

It is a great idea but always be generous with the copper heatsinks wink.gif that is where the secret sauce is found smile.gif, happy vrm's equal happy card smile.gif

I know what you mean about the bridge. My 7970's were using the older pre-CSQ bridge and those o-rings are a pain! I feel like our rigs should have a no holds barred cage match they are so evenly matched! wink.gif

Yours is so much cleaner and nicer, I still have a ton of work to do to match that, its really nice.

Lol, but the hardware is almost identical! wink.gif

Oh, and I sold my S27A950D last fall when I got my Shimians!

hello everyone, I been reading a lot over here and got a lot of nice info. I just wanted to add that I had a titan asic was 66% and over volts would only go up to 1187. and I could only bench at 1058 over clock without crash and it would down clock like mad and memory was pretty bad also, gaming was also bad I could only game like at 1045 overclock without crash. so got the new card and 1st thing I checked was asic and it is only 63% and I was so unhappy. so I bumped the over voltage up to 1200 and now I am able to bench at 1189 overclock and game at 1146 overclock, so I think the voltage was the problem. might seem still low to some of you but playing crisis 3 and far cry 3 and any other game is maxed out and on a 120hz moniter I stay over 100 fps and no downclocking at all. evga sc is the card:thumb:

No, the point is to minimize leakage and voltage, since power scales by voltage squared, and leakage is just plain wasted power. Undoubtedly the "best" silicon goes into the $$$$ Tesla line. Whether it would clock higher is up for debate.

I only checked PCI-E 2.0 vs 3.0 in the Bioshock Infinite benchmark, got a ~4% overall difference (up to 8% in some scenes), on a stock Titan (boosts to 980).

I then tried removing my overclocks and even downclocking the core and memory speeds to see if that did anything, but once again, the monitor just blacked out and said 'no signal was detected'. I even tried re-installing the drivers twice just to make sure it wasn't them acting up. No luck - still crashes almost instantly upon booting up any game/benchmark.

I was beginning to think I may have bricked my card, but it stopped crashing after putting the stock cooler back on. I have a feeling its because the VRM's or even the memory overheated, despite have a 92mm fan hovering over them at full blast as well as having good airflow inside my case to begin with.

So it looks like I'll need some VRM and memory heatsinks to do the mod properly on this beast : I'm currently back on the stock cooler for now...

Pictures !?!?! please tongue.gif Been thinking about this allot. The idea i have right now is full waterblock with backplate. Drill holes in the back plate to mount the pump making it active cooling. Adding a small resrvoir, basically a glorified bleed valve, at a high point in the system. Using a fan controller to control and power pump, could even use another pump mounted to the front side of the water block but that would start to get ugly because it would probably involve glue or fabbing a bracket to hold it flush on the front without tapping into the waterblocks or cards mounting points.

....Or even mount two pumps side by side on the back plate one pushing through the block, the other pulling out, but thats adding allot of weight back there same problem with putting it on front probably need to support the weight with something. Hopefully one pump is strong enough tongue.gif
