Nobody here has tried the G10 on a 970 yet?

Hi everyone, I am ready to pull the trigger on a pair of G10's to be used in conjunction with the mid-plates of my ACX coolers (excellent VRM cooling solution), but I have a concern as I am running an air-cooler (Phanteks PH-TC14PE) which is dimensionally identical to Noctua's NH-D14. Clearance between the primary GPU and the air-cooler is in question, but right now a back-plate clears no problem with maybe 2 mm of room remaining.

Is anyone here running a G10 in conjunction with an air-cooler?

Thanks in advance.

I also wanted to thank "Faceman" for the wealth of valuable information he has selflessly provided, I am sure he visits here occasionally:

Despite how it looks, the IceQ X2 air cooler is actually quite efficient and quiet for a 290. I almost don't want to take it apart... lol. Here's their webpage for it with some nice clear pics; http://www.hisdigital.com/ca/product2-790.shtml

Base clocks are 947 GPU and 1250 memory, but I've already nudged that up to 1000 GPU and 1300 memory with afterburner for nice little bump in performance. wink.gif

That cooler is efficient until you go crossfire. I had a single iceq X2 290x that was topping out ~75C at 40% fan speed. I was ok with that and I picked up a second one and in crossfire all that hot air off the bottom gpu gets blown directly onto the top card.

I went with the G10 because my top card was hitting 94C while the bottom card stayed around 75C. My board has that "extra" pci slot/space as well. Its still not enough room for the top and bottom card to breathe.

I honestly can't believe these temps are considered safe operating temperatures for anything except a bbq grille/oven...

edit: weird, somehow quoted person from 5 pages ago.

Bahaha I'm the guy who cut off the "4 prongs" in the post he linked. I just wanted to add that. *flys away*
