Right but there doesn't appear to be a way to seat the card properly then. There is no way to plug in the pcie cords without pushing the bracket down

Odd. Do you have a picture of it?
post #1463 of 1588
just installed another g10 with x40 on my 2nd card.

getting around 30C idle... to 52C load...

not sure why but this was on another PC.
post #1464 of 1588
what is your card sir galloway?
post #1465 of 1588
Any one have a decent VRM heatsink solution for the 780ti ? I got these Enzotech MOS-C1 C1100 Forged Copper Heatsinks, but they fall right off with the slightest nudge.

Also how do you guys attach the backplate with out the heat sink to screw it into ?

Right now im getting 23c idle and 40c running full tilt on cudaminer (litecoin type mining). Ambient temp is 75F.

wait for evga to get this back in stock
http://www.evga.com/Products/Product.aspx?pn=100-FS-3790-B9

and use the unisink. you will have to sand down the 4 posts that around the gpu but its worth it.

I went with these http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007XACV8O/ref=oh_details_o02_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
The fan is right about them so I can't see it being any worse then the stock cooler. ACX cooler would look much cleaner for sure. Still may go that route one day.

I use a prolimatech mk 26 and it comes with included aluminum heatsink on the thermal tape. I had issues where they would fall off, as you mentioned so I took a razer blade and cleanly scraped it off and used a combination of my thermal tape and a very small amount of the pk3 non conductive thermal paste on it to use as a stickier base. Mining it 100% doesn't press the temps over 45C

I put a Kraken G10 and a Corsair H75 on a XFX Radeon HD 7870 Core Edition inside of a Nanoxia Deep Silence 4 last night. Was a tight squeeze but it made it and seems to be working well. Total install time took around 2 hours, though I imagine that has a lot to do with my own careful, plodding approach to desktop upgrades. I included a couple of pictures below.

Overall, sound and thermals look (and sound) good. Highest GPU temperature I clocked last night came during a Civilization V test. It was the first game I noticed temperature (and sound) issues that at a couple of points starting approaching 85 Celsius. Highest I saw last night under Civ V was 60.

Couple of points: First, I do not plan on overclocking. I purchased this because my PC's physical location has mediocre (at best) airflow and I have become incredibly picky about noise levels since I purchased a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO last year. So my priorities are not maxing out performance but neutralizing excess noise and controlling temperatures during extended gameplay.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)







You will see the 7870 has VRM's primarily on the left and, though I did not include a photo, the XFX heatsink and fan does not include any thermal paste over the VRMs nor any contact points to the heatsink. With that in mind I was perfectly happy to only add heatsinks to the VRAM modules, which you can see above.

Performance has been stellar. After I removed the upper HDD bracket in my case (tried to remove the other one but it doesn't want to go anywhere right now) airflow seems to have helped drop those temps down from ~60 Celsius in Civ V and BF4 to closer to 53/54 Celsius, which seems to be what everyone else is getting. Sound performance is good. I don't have a happy, balanced spot yet for my fan speeds. I have an AsRock Z87M Extreme4 and the fan pins are few and mostly 3-pin. I have one H75 fan and the Kraken G10 fan attached to Chassis Fan 1 (4-pin) and the other attached to Chassis Fan 2. My H75 fan is attached to the only PWR Fan connector on the board. If I find a happier place for fan speeds I'll let you guys know.

Overall, quite happy.

Is it worth getting a kraken x60 over an x40 since a x40 won't fit in my case? And has there been any problems installing them on r9-290/x?
