Gtx 670 aftermarket cooler

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi

I have a Gtx 670 (Gainward edition) of the version with the small PCB. The cooling makes a loud humming, and is about 80 degrees celsius when playing. (the case is a fractal define R3)
I have therefore settle with the conclusion that i need another cooler. I therefore have in mind following.

Accelero Twin Turbo II

Accelero Mono PLUS

The twin turbo is just about 10$ more expensive.
My question is... What to choose.

As i have read the forum i have found that the "Twin" has better cooling, but is more heavey. Would the mono bend my PCB or is it light enough?
My main reason to change is heat and noice, but i don't need to have the cooling all insane. Below 65 is my wish if posible. Therefore i don't think i need the ekstra cooling fra the twin.

Last thing is my concern, regarding the cooling of the rest of the card. One thing is the GPU, another, the Vram. Does anyone have any experience?

check the contact pressure and surface of the current heatsink and repaste the card with like mx2. give that a try first. I'd recommend the wanted 620 mod over any air cooling any day too....

I would recommend this a lot more than the pricier acceleros.

Well I'm not sure about liquid cooling on GPU's. I mean, the CPU makes sence, but the GPU has stuff like, the Vram and that is not cooled at a Liquid cooler.
Second thing is, that i'm not that much of an overclocker. Yes my CPU (2500k) is runnin 4,4Ghz cooled by a Freezer 13, but that works just fine. Sure the temp inside the case will rise a little, since the heat will get blow "into" the case, and not out, as it is now.

But what are your experience with Liquid on GPU's?

I've had an Accelero Hybrid on my single 670 before I went SLI and WC. While it is a pricy unit, it did a fantastic job of keeping the GPU cool at full load and best of all (which was my reason for buying it) was the noise reduction over the reference cooler, night and day difference. Plus if you change the fan on the radiator (I had used a GELID Wing 12 fan), you can quiet it down further. IMO, if you pursue down the liquid route without going custom, "the mod" is a wise choice either by fabricating your own mounting solution or the dwood bracket since you will save some money, unless of course you would rather have the peace of mind a solution made specifically for your card would bring (i.e.: the Accelero Hybrid). smile.gif

hmmm i still prefer the air cooled solution, since this is more easy, and cheaper. I will therefore ask back to the two coolers i talked about.

I think about the mono because it is lighter and i have seen that the twin will bend the pcb. Second thought is that i think the mono is enough to keep a standart card below 70. The biggest concern is the extention in the with of the card.... i dont know if i can mount a fan in the case in front of the gpu (on the side)....

please help me, because i realy don't know.... frown.gif

so realy the question is:

-will mono cool enough?

-will mono extend too much?

-How do i support the weight of the twin if I go with this one? :/

Did the same thing a while back on my 670. Card looks tiny with the stock cooler removed and the Twin Turbo does block slots & hang over the back. Performance wise, its much, much better. Temps now don't exceed 50c & noise wise, its like chalk & cheese...It does bend the PCB a touch, but its been installed for about 8 months i think & no issues at all....
