Oh I see, yeah same concept. What kind of temps are you seeing now with the G10('s)? My parts are trickling in, I should have them up and running early next week. They couldn't arrive sooner, playing Max Payne 3 at 2560x1440 3D last night I was seeing sustained temps of 75C and 65C primary and secondary at 1254 core / 1850 memory @ 1.212v. This game absolutely requires this kind of OC, I still see 45FPS (3D) in certain areas, I can't imagine what it would be at say 1050 core.

Can't wait to see those temps drop down to 50 and 40 C primary and secondary with a similar drop in VRM temps (will be using ACX mid-plate)! Should be within the realm of possibility even with H55's as I will be adding the existing Noiseblocker B-12's to them which have an unparalleled noise/performance ratio (yes even better than Noctua): http://www.overclock.net/t/1389355/fan-testing-round-12-begins-thanks-to-cpachris-and-prymus-nb-e-loop-sp120-nf-f12-cougar-vortex-pwm-vortex-red-led-pirahna-ap-45

Gonna set all the case fans, including the rad fans, to 50% and hope for the best. The fan drone has really started to annoy me as of late for some reason, at 50% they are nearly inaudible.

Oh and I wanted to say, a good deal of my excitement around the AIO cooling solution is that unlike expensive water-blocks the G10's can be migrated to future GPU's. Having an SLI cooling solution with a total cost outlay under $200 pays for itself when you subtract the difference between reference and non-reference GPU's; i.e. say I upgrade to 980/1080 Ti in a few years, I can simply purchase the reference model instead of say EVGA's ACX 2.0 offering and save about $100 a card and still have superior cooling.

I just installed Kraken G10s with H55 Corsairs on my two Evga 780 Classifieds. I used a 1.2 mm thick copper shim on both to preserve the midplate that cools the vrms. When i have a single one running my max temp was 63 degrees C. Now that i have them on SLI the top one reaches 68 degrees average and the bottom one 63 degrees while playing Tomb Raider with everything maxed out for an hour. I have remounted the bracket several times, so i think it comes down to the shims not being very good.

Both Radiators are in the front of my H440 case. I think that part of the problem is that the heat on the front of the case doesn't go away. Still, when the case is open my temps hover around 63 degrees. This is super high compared to what other people are reporting.

I think a 1.5mm shim is the minimum thickness for having the memory plate on.

You think it's worth it unmounting everything and putting 1.5mm thick shims? it's such a PITA and waste of TIM. But people report temps around 55 degrees. When i see 68 degrees on my top card it makes me think all the work and money was not worth it. Even though it's super silent.

EDIT: Well, i give up, i tried the 1.5mm shims and there wasn't any improvement. Max temps running Tomb Raider with everything set Ultra is 65 degrees. I don´t know what else to do. I even tried it with the Radiator outside of the case to see if it was airflow the problem. redface.gif Maybe it's just Tomb Raider that has the ability to heat up the GPU, because running 10 Benchmarks of Metro Last Light the max temp is 55 degrees.

Did you put TIM on both sides of the copper shim? It doesn't look like you did, at least in the picture it doesn't.

I use a .08mm shim on my EVGA 780 SC and never break 50C, Using Gelid Extreme TIM on both sides of the shim. Ambient Temperature is 24C. I only have one card in a full tower, Phanteks Enthoo Pro. Also, I have an X31 compared to H55. 2 Fans in push/pull @ 1500rpm. Pump is plugged into a molex for 100% speed. My card does have any additional voltage going through it, I am able to hit +100Mhz on the Core and +250Mhz on the memory on stock voltage, 1.162v. What is the stock voltage or overclocked voltage of the Classified?

I think your main problem is not having TIM on both sides of the copper shim.

Also, make sure that your fans are set to exhaust the air away from your case.

Yeah man, i did put TIM on both sides of the shim. Now, one of my 780 Classies with the Kraken, a 1.2 mm shim and a H55 in push config is hitting 53 degrees max while playing Tomb Raider. I don't understand what i did different.

The second 780 that i just redid is hitting 61 degrees max in Tomb Raider. So i don't know what's different apart from the fact that i did the first one yesterday. Could it be it takes some time for the TIM to cure?

I'm using Artic Silver Mx4 on both. A drop the size of a grain of rice on each side of the shim.

GPU's need more TIM than CPUs. Also, I spread my mine out rather than rely on pressure because the pressure isn't perfect with the shim. Gelid GC Extreme TIM is about 2-3C better than MX4 on GPUs, with medium mounting pressure. I use an X31 that is 30mm thick compared to 27mm thick of the H55, an extra 10% helps there. The pump in my X31 also goes up to 4,000rpm, but I run it at 3,500rpm. Not sure on the speed of the H55. Also, I am using 2 fans in push/pull. Cooler Master Blade Master's with a very high static pressure of 3.9.

Are you running at 1440p? 1080p? Multiple monitors?

I use a 22' 1080p IPS monitor, and an old 720p 42in TV for just web browsing, Netflix, and monitoring programs. Some games cause the card to run hotter than others, I don't own Tomb Raider, so I can't comment on that game. Metro:LL is one of the games that runs hotter for me, and I max out around 48C after a long play session. Also, the DSR was just released yesterday, and I did some experimenting with that. I found that when I am running at 1440p or Ultra4k, my temperatures do increase by a few Celsius. Still never exceeding 54C.

Is your classified overclocked? If not, what is the stock voltage on the classified?

Also, you have to keep in mind that you're running two cards compared to my one. Also in an H440 that is notorious for poor airflow. I saw that you removed the side panel and have the radiator outside of the case, and that seemed to help a little. Just keep in mind that because of your case, and multiple cards so close to each other, your temperatures are going to be hotter than someone else's. When you do finally put it all back together, make sure that you are running your H55s as exhaust, even if it is blowing air out of the front. Just switch up the airflow of your case to go from intake top and rear to exhaust front.

I reapplied the TIM on both cards, and have both radiators set to exhaust air. The card on top reaches 51 degrees max. The second 55 degrees! None of them are overclocked. After all the trial and error i think i finally managed to get those awesome temps everyone's talking about. It's just that with the shims the performance seems to be quite unpredictable.
