The trick is, 10 minutes with valley, and my VRM reach 84°C!

No doubt I need to find a solution before applying any OC ... redface.gif

Hi, are there any increase in temp compared to the stock 92mm?

Also whats the pwm adapter for? tongue.gif

Well, about comparing stock cooler with the Be Quiet 'Shadown Wing', I could'nt say. Unfortunately I started to use Valley AFTER installing the new fan. Before that I was able to hit 73°C with the benchmark I had (3DMark11, Adrenaline Crysis 2). But I think Valley his more demanding, because the load is nearly constant and you can run it as long as you want.

Maybe someone could provide numbers with stock cooler running Valley (R9 290, stock frequency, no OC).

Regarding the pwm adapter, it allows connecting the Shadow Wing fan to the CG fan connector. This way you get fan control via TriXX, MSI afterburner or any other CG provider SW. Very convenient I would say smile.gif

So I don't see the third batch being shipped this month

According to a post by an NZXT rep over on Hardforum, the 2nd batch actually isn't going to ship until 1/25... which is a Saturday. This tells me it's more likely to ship on 1/27, for arrival by Feb 1st ish.

This would indicate that batch 3 probably won't arrive from their overseas supplier until sometime in mid February, for delivery in probably late February.

But again, these are educated guesses based on what we've heard from NZXT.

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!

hint:
I 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)?

HI ramme223,

Well, yes VRM1 reaches 84°C fast enough ... 10mn of load at stock frequency. That's pretty hot. About VRM1, I guess this is this one on the left of the card? Or the right ? Can you confirm?




If this is the left one, this one is not refreshed by the 92mm fan. So whatever the fan, the tempertaure will be the same redface.gif

You're right, some Thermally Conductive Adhesive Tape might be a good solution. And no risk to let it fall on the fan here smile.gif What brand/model do you use?

About Trixx, I was supposed to ise Corsair Link instead, but it happens to be unreliable to set custom curve. You're right, Evga Precision X or MSI Afterburner must be better. I'll give it a try.

Well, I got really lucky, got a G10 yesterday in the UK from www.overclockers.co.uk. They had two in stock for a few hours. Plan on attaching an H75, a noctua 92mm, and bought a gelid vrm enhancment pack thing for the VRM's. (Cooling a 290)

Don't think it's worth getting heatsinks for the vram? Haven't seen any memory temperatures.. Not sure if it's worth it..

ArctiClean is great stuff, just re-uped on it myself! Even for thermal tape, it comes right off smile.gif

probably not as loud as your stock cooler was. the 140mm and 92mm fans are what are going to be making a majority of the noise, the water pump is actually very quiet

for reference:

VRM heatsinks are probably more important than VRAM heatsinks. read the last few pages, we've been discussing this

Another question: What about cooling the vrms and ram modules? Also will this take a universal water block?

If you don't plan on overclocking, the memory and vrm heatsinks will not be necessary.

if you do plan on overclocking a little, then these selections would work fine. For high overclocks, you will need to look at another solution to cool the vrm.

Thanks for those links; one quick question - once installed are they removable? Or does the adhesive permanently glue it to the card? Sorry for the newb question.

If you're using the tape that comes preapplied they will be removable.
