Replacement cooler for EVGA GTX650 ti ssc (Short-end)

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone.

I Have one of these graphic cards for a secondary case, I got it free with the purchase of Assasin's creed 3 (which was for a gift to my little brother)

I can't recommend it, damn thing broke on me barely past the warranty. that's sh it craftsmanship. One of the plastic fins is off and now it comes loose from it's socket because of the violent vibrations and causes the system to crash. It also makes a crapton of noise.

I'd like to restore this case to working order. What is an cheap air cooling that i can install on this card. (knowing that it's not the standard size, but a much much shorter card) :



looking at it it doesn't seem i could change only the fan, although if that's an option, I'd be really happy.

Thanks in advance and many Kudos to you all! ^^

You should be able to remove the shroud/fan and stick a case fan on it. It won't look fancy, but I've done it in the past and it works fine. Just use zip/twist ties to secure a fan to the heatsink and have the fan pushing air down onto the card.

This shows the screw setup for the current cooler.

There are three screws in a triangular setup bolting down the fan to the plastic casing struts underneath and the struts themselves have 4 screws that attatch the plastic casing to the radiator (and probably participate in the bolting down of the radiator. this is why i said being able to change the fan only seemed unlikely (to me, maybe there are ways I don't know of).

good idea, this should work. what about the fan pins, the current fan only has three pins.

You should be able to pull the plastic shroud off then remove the fan easier and see how it's connected. Honestly I'd just remove the shroud and cable tie a 92mm or a 120mm fan to it. Will provide better airflow/temps and allow to have a quieter cooler.

small development. the shroud screws are also the radiator screws frown.gif

will it be ok if i try to put them back in without the shroud and without separating the radiator from the card or redoing the thermal paste? will the radiator tighten sufficiently? On the other end the scew is a spring.

And the shround screws won't come lose no matter what I try.. whereas on the underside they unscrew willingly, the two must not be linked. but I don't want to undo the heatsink.

they feel as if they've been soldered on. how about breaking off the shroud? I already took off the unique underside screw..

Take the whole cooler off and then try. I read a review on bitech a minute ago and they removed the shroud. Just hook the fan up to a motherboard header or molex adapter. Post pics if possible.

I can't, the four shroud to heatsink screws won't come out. it sems like they've been soldered. If i remove the heatsink then the thermal paste and contact surface won't be as good as before.
