Will this gpu cooler fit?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Lu all

I have a KFA2/Galaxy GTX 670, model number 67NPH6DV5ZVX. The card is built on a 680 PCB, and according to EK coolingconfigurator it would require a gtx 680 block as its the reference PCB.

Im looking at the Gelid Icy Vision rev2 here - http://www.cclonline.com/product/64247/GEL-ICY-VISION/Graphics-Coolers/Gelid-Solutions-Icy-Vision-Rev-2-VGA-Cooler-for-High-end-ATI-and-Nvidia/CLR0197/

According to the manufacturer site the cooler is compatible with:

Nvidia™: 9800GT, 9800GTX, GTS250, GTX260, 275, 280, 285, GTS450, GTX 460, GTX465, GTX470, GTX480, GTX550TI, GTX560TI, GTX570, GTX580, Quadro 4000, GTX680, GTX Titan, GTX770 (by using stand-off) and GTX 780.

Will this work? Im guessing it should do.

thanks

Looks like it should. as long as the capacitors aren't too tall (which they don't look) it should be fine. There is a PDF here: http://www.gelidsolutions.com/clients/gelid/userfiles/height_restriction_drawing.pdf that has height dimensions. As your card has a stock cooler, it should be fine.

cool thanks!

Just thinking I cant see why it wouldnt make sense if its meant to fit gtx 680s and mine is built on a 680 pcb.

It's because firstly, the OEM (the people who make the graphics card) receive the chip, then design everything else on the board. This means that some components will be different sizes than the reference card (which nvidia makes to say what the other GPUs should be like), which is what aftermarket coolers are based on (because there is only one SKU). The reason the board is the same as the 680 is because the 670 and 680 are the same GPU, but the 670 has fallen below KFA2's A for the 680, so they downclock it to 670 specs.
