Well I just got done, she aint pretty but shes nice and quiet now! I might get one of those NZXT brackets. Also I need to order more VRMsinks and RAMsinks.



These are temps while folding:





Then in the spoiler is more pictures of installing, finished, and some Unigine temps. One is 15 minutes running, then the next one is 3 minutes to cool down temps.
More pictures and temps!! (Click to show)

Yup. You win. That is ugly. What about the RAM and VRM's?

Edit: how did your VRM tmps go down with no heat sinks on them? Or am I blind? yes, I am blind.

I see them now. Hey, whatever works. Right?

Wait; you're comparing a 90+% load on stock to a 1% load. What are the VRM's like at 98% load?

There's a 120mm fan pointed directly at them. I think some people over-estimate the effectiveness of AMD's stock heatsink for the VRMs and RAM chips. All it is, is a big black piece of aluminum feeling metal that makes contact with that other inadequate heatsink. It's mostly just the airflow of the stock cooler that keeps these things cool. You could watercool this card with a uniblock and be able to keep the VRMs and RAM chips below the point of overheating with decent ambient temps and airflow inside the case. VRMsinks and RAMsinks are definitely a good idea if you're going to be gaming for long sessions. I did order some but I don't have any right now.

mine did that once and I did a fresh install of the gpu driver cleaned the drivers with DDU in safe mode. Do a complete uninstall of AB and the OSD, I did not save any AB settings when it asked. Worked for me.
