googled error code 43 seems to be linked to usb. unplug the USB header cable from the motherboard and see whta that does. maybe a bad header on the motherboard

let me know thanks smile.gif

I also asked for that, somewhere earlyer in the thread you could read something like 11mm... but that couldnt be right.
I think i could answer that by showing you 2 pieces of foam biggrin.gif




14mm should be the max. Greetings from Germany

What type of temp difference would I see installing VRM's using perm solution or thermal tape?

I considered using Arctic Alumina to permanently adhere some copper heatsinks to the VRMs, but I decided against it. In my earlier post, I said that with the G10 + X40 and a 92mm Noctua fan, neither of the VRM temperature readings crossed 80C playing BF4 @ 1080p Ultra. I've now used the exact same setup with BF4 @ 1440p Ultra, and again, the VRMs stayed under 80C.

So, I think it's a mistake to make any permanent additions. You'll seriously hurt your resale ability. I'm still working on adapting the plate from the stock shroud to work with the G10 setup -- I know it can work, but it does take some significant alterations. Either try that heatsink kit mentioned a few posts back, or use some good thermal tape. But, again, you can safely run any current game without any heatsinks on the VRMs.

I wonder if NZXT would make a version without the rear fan attachment so cards ( most reference version ) have an option to keep all the stock cooling on the rear of the card - ie blower fan and cooling plate over vrm section. Instead the G10.2.0 (idk, had to call it sumptin tongue.gif ) would offer a shim with no fan, this could offset the cost keeping the bracket the same price-dont need the nzxt fan if you keep stock vrm cooling right wink.gif

would be cool. but hey we could always hack saw off the fan part our self thumb.gif lol



right now im looking at heatsinks for the vrm. i think im going with these for the gpu vrm's
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/7190/vid-105/Enzotech_MOS-C1_MOSFET_Heatsinks_-_10_Pack.html#blank

being that there are 8 for the gpu and in the back there are 4 more (probably for the Vram) i may go with this
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/5557/vid-86/Swiftech_MC21_Aluminum_MOSFET_Heatsinks_-_21mm_x_6mm_x_10mm_-_4_pack_.html?tl=g40c16 so pissed cause i would like to use the enzotech copper for everything but that kit only comes with 10. i will be 2 short .... mad.gif

as for the ram probably just go with these
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/17951/vid-196/VGA_Aluminum_Heatsink_w_3M_8810_Adhesive_-_13mm_x_13mm_x_7mm_-_Silver.html?tl=g40c16s224#blank for the sake that i can by them by the number. all the nice kits only come with 8 and i need 12.

wanted to get these http://www.frozencpu.com/products/7191/vid-106/Enzotech_BCC9_Memory_Ramsinks_-_8_Pack_BMR-C1L.html#blank but like i said i need 12 and not paying another 17 bucks for 4 more.




what are your thoughts just putting heatsinks on just the VRM's and leaving the ram bare?

not to feed this vrm thing but i thought that you guys should take a look at this video (this is not me, some video i saw on youtube.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_N9dZhEC4as

that video was after he put the heatsinks on his 290X here is the video with the temps before putting them on

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7-Xc8F_ioac

as you can see down to 54C from 80C. im ordering my heatsinks now. but im not using the arctic silver adhesive that hes using. once you use it, thats it, and i dont want to void my warranty.
