OK, why is my graphics card crashing when i put load on it? GPU temp is ok and i believe that is 70-80°C for VRMs also gud.

Can be the memory? i dont have any heatsinks on it.

Nice! Can you share some benchmarks once you get settled? Also, can you try to clock your memory @1500 for a few tests to compare with mine. My powercolor Mysts don't like the memory overclocked.

I will worry about aesthetics after I get a good OC biggrin.gif
Also, the heatsink on this is really TINY Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




 

What case do you have and do you use that side fan as an intake or exhaust?

Purchased the Powercolor 7870 LE Myst. The original cooling system is horrible. Loud and HOT! So here's what I did. Like others as well. Works great fyi. Pics:

STOCK:


Heatsink Removed, the original TIM is spread evenly, i was surprised!


Cleaned it up, such a shiny beauty!


Zip tie'd 2 Cooler Master R4 120mm case fans I had laying around, not the quietest option but are fairly good at moving air (would have rather used Cougar V12BB fans, they are nice and quiet and push great air.


Installed the original heatsink back on, using IC Diamond TIM and removed the original fan and shroud.


Installed on the DWood tech bench on an ASRock Extreme4.


Being powered by 2 convenient 3-pin adapters.


Sorry for the crap pics at times, Cell phones aren't the best under low lighting.
Anyways, here's the temps:

Idle:
Core: 28c
VRAM: 31c

Full Load:
Core: 62c
VRAM: 81c

Wish i measured the stock heatsink, but oh well. This solution is much quieter and can be even quieter depending on the fan used and the use of a fan controller.

Edit: ASIC Quality = 66.6% .28 Bios

Be very careful with the VRMs. They do get hot under little load real fast. Personally, I am going to heatsink them and the memory then blow air on them. Many posters say you need to blow air on VRMs and RAM as well as heatsink them if you are using a universal gpu waterblock.

Here is a pic of where I think the RAM and VRMs are;

How did you clean the IHS? How did you avoid contacting the transistors?

i finally touch 9200p smile.gif

http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/6347931

i hope you enjoy

Takes my tahiti le @ 1175/1500 and i7 2700k @ 4600Mhz for 9250 points smile.gif. Those 7870 regular cards are pretty quick too it seems smile.gif

http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/5999458

I guess it was @ 1180/1525, before I figured out I score lower with overclocked memory tongue.gif

This was my highest score:

http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/6303381

That was with the second card I got, it overclocked much higher, but came w/out VRM sinks from the factory, so sent it back. They were hitting 100c easy @ stock speeds.
