Inspiration from Cravinmilds Zotac 560ti/Corsair H70 mod has paid off :D

Greetings all. I am new to this so if my conduct is incorrect please forgive me. Read on:

NOTE: Do this at your own risk. I was very careful and had to adjust and re-adjust the cable ties several times before I was satisfied with their firm grip and placement. wink.gif

I have modded my Gigabyte Superclocked GTX 560 ti in the very same manner as Cravinmild with his Zotac 560 ti w/ Corsair H70. I'm impressed at how firm and strong those cable ties are. I didn't buy cheap ones either. I also took the Northbridge heatsink from an old ASUS M2N - E motherboard cut and shortened the piping then folded & soldered it again then re-added the ASUS plate at the end then poxy glued it to the PCB heatstink. Interesting to know there was water in there. All seems fine 1 week after biggrin.gif
It was fun and I am fairly new to modding and tweaking but not to computers. All of my fans are currently running off of psu. I am good with my hands and crafty with my technique and skill. My GPU has cooled down 10 degrees in game. It is now running stable at 1000 Core Voltage, 969 Core Clock (MHz) in MSi Afterburner @ 40 degrees idle 60 in game which is still 10 degrees cooler than with previous Windforce "factory heatsink/fan".

My rig consists of:

ASUS Maximus V Gene Micro Board
Intel Core i7 2700k @ 4.5 GHz (32 degrees)
8 GB Kingston Hyper X Predator @ 2133 MHz Note: I have since upgraded my ram since the picture was taken days ago.
128 GB Adata SSD
2 TB Seagate HDD
Corsair TX850W psu
HAF 922 Gaming case:
H100 Cooling system with 4 fans on top all forcing air upwards (No heat being push/pulled into case)
NVIDIA Gigabyte GTX 560 ti SuperClocked with H70 and heatsink mod with 2 fans upwards into case from bottom. (31 - 40 Degrees difference from 47 up to 71 Degrees during in game play)
Side panel has x2 200 mm one on the outside one on the inside both intake fans. Another 200 mm mounted in the front pulling air in, 120 mm mounted inside the front pulling air in. 120 mm mounted in rear blowing air out. Including the PSU there is 12 fans and it is surprisingly quiet. I bought the Sceptre pro 120 mm and Sceptre 200mm Red led fans and it's humming like a charm.

Was I nervous? YES! Was it fun? YES!!! thumb.gif Props to those out there breaking the ice with new ideas and innovative creativity.
