Can someone confirm if I would be needing a "shim" that I have been seeing in some post on this thread????? Also, wondering if copper heatsinks are needed for the VRam. Lastly, what are most doing to address the VRM with this bracket. Any advice or suggestion greatly appreciated.

Yes, you will need to order a shim. http://www.frozencpu.com/products/20761/thr-215/Pure_Copper_Thermal_Shim_-_15mm_x_15mm_x_05mm.html?tl=g8c487s2034


Would be cool to see if this memory/vrm heatsink would work under a G10? Hard to tell from the pictures.

Modded my xfired 290X's w/G10 and H105 to use the cooling backplate from the new Accelero Twin Turbo III

20c drop in VRM temps.

WOW, that looks just bad ass! was curious if anyone would attempt this... glad it worked out well.

why in the one pics does it look like the bolts are at an angle? did you have any trouble fitting it all together?hows temps with or without that heatsink on the back?what would be cool is if they made a heatsink similar to that but for the front side ofthe pcb...looks awsome:thumb:

You bought two of those Arcitc Accelero's just for their backplates?

Thanks! When I saw it was coming out, I knew I was going to try it.

The first pic that shows me holding it assembled was a test fit. The pic of the screws in the bracket with the bottom of the pump showing are slanted because I hadn't yet tightened the nuts in the screws. Once those nuts are tightened (they hold the screws in to aid in assembly) they become straight.

I had to drill the mounting holes in the G10 bracket to a slightly bigger diameter in order to fit the screws I used. I also had to widen the slots on the the metal tabs that are used in the mounting of backplate to accepted the screws I used.

The first one was more trial and error to figure out what works and what doesn't. The second one was a breeze because I had it all figured out. LOL

Temps are good. Whereas I was seeing 80c temps on the VRMs...I'm now seeing 60c.

Yes I did...I bought the cheapest one. There are 4 models, but the backplate assembly is the same for all.

The cost wasn't that bad ($65 each on Newegg) considering I was initially going to do a XSPC backplate and copper heatsinks on both cards. I also plan on selling what I didn't use which will recoup some $$.

Ah, makes sense. How much are you selling what's left of the Twin Turbos for?

Nice..i rep you earlier..i posted thesw new heatsinks in the mod thread earlier..was wondering when sm1 is goin to try it out..
I still think that if this was a backside/+front pcb heatsink..itll even drop temps more..looks great..how high up does these
stand up from backside

Thanks for the rep!

I think the temps are really good considering it's cooling from the back. I do have fans mounted to my hd cages that push air in that direction, but I have them running at low rpms. However, those numbers could be increased even further with more direct air flow to the fins.

I do agree with you that additional heatsinks on the front would aid in additional cooling if necessary.

The backplate is 23mm in height. I would factor in an additional 5mm for the thermal material and padding. That's around the thickness of your standard fan.
