No doubt I need to find a solution before applying any OC ...
So even at 100% fan speed it's not possible to cool down the "naked" VRM?
Oh, that's way to hot for my taste. While it's still in the specification but it makes sence to go with some passive VRM/Mosfet coolers.
Use someThermally Conductive Adhesive Tapes. In comparison to thermal compound you will be able to remove them easily and reuse the passive coolers for further gpu projects. Bear in mind to clean the VRM's, there shouldn't be any fat (p. ex. fingertips) or remainings of alcohol cleaner left otherwise the VRM coolers will not stay in place properly. You have to press the passive coolers with some force. If they are in place don't touch them again.
The tape must stay only on the VRM/Mosfet surface and shall not touch any other parts. Danger of short circuit!
I would recommend to use Evga Precision X or MSI Afterburner instead of TriXX to set a custom curve for the 92mm fan.
It also will give you more details about the other specs going on and you can OC your card like as usual.II
Have a look, could be useful:
Am i right that you are using Kraken Control via usb header to set up the curve for the radiator-fan (140mm)?
@xD3aDPooLx: Am i allowed to lower the pump speed via fancontroller 7V/5V instead of 12V to reach a better noise level? - with regard to warranty terms...Edited by ramme223 - 1/15/14 at 3:33am
