Old Nvidia GTX480s with H60s?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Howdy pardners,
as I was telling 'em odder fellers in the newbie forum, my 8th grade boy got two older genuine Nvidia brand GTX 480 graphics cards from a buddy of mine. We tried to SLI them together, but the whole darn rig got two hot and after a few minutes running it would jes plain shut down. We added two more cfans to flow more air through the case, but it's still no good. I think the darn trailer is just too hot!
I wanted to find out if you fellers had tried to use "H60-like" water coolers on the 480s. I got a good deal on a couple of em. But I think I'm gonna have to widdle at the radiator thingy-majigg that's there right now. I don't know if I'll be able to find the right bracket at the corner store. If you guys had to dremmel sumthin, what did y'all do? I've been looking at the pictures some of you have been posting, but them things look just a bit too fancy for us country folk, ehr I mean, nobody is going to be looking inside the computer case, right?
Cheers y'all, it's time for a cold one,
Tico6f5

Thanks good buddy! Yeah, I had checked the thread and others before showing my newbieness and posting. I even looked up the site and messaged dwood. I haven't heard from him yet; I'm sure he is very busy. But the site simply says that the item is out of stock and did not allow me to place an order. I will try again and see what happens. Otherwise, I will have to my backup plan - duck tape!
Cheers good buddy.
Peace y'all

You could just use zip-ties like the first few people did.

Or you could 3d-print a bracket. I'm going to try soon to see if a 3d-printed bracket will work.

Thanks, yeah, I saw a few installations with zip ties. I might try that.
But I like the 3d printing idea if I didn't so many other honeydews. Plus it'll give this old man a chance to learn something new.
Cheers man!

Problem solved!
I found a few inexpensive Eco-II 120s on tigerdirect. I had to mod the aluminum stiffners for the video cards using a dremel. Then I used the AM3+ brackets. Here are some pics. Yes the cabling is cramped and needs some work, but the boy's rig is running cool now.


Thanks to all for the suggestions.
