post #3001 of 5901
I did plan to go with a be.quiet silent wings two. Is has just 1800 rpm compared to the ncotua but the m3h is higher. Anyways, I don't get why I should remove that alumic heatsink from the titan since it does fit and transfet the heat from the components. I can still mont the G10. I don't know whats below the blower fan but that would get air aswell.

The Silent Wings2 is also a good choice, really can't go wrong with it. Just make sure it is spinning at a high speed at all times.

I would absolutely, positively keep that mid plate on if it fits with the G10. From the looks of it, it won't, but I don't have it in front of my, so I can't say for certain. The blower fan is directly over the VRMs.

Any extra airflow does help with VRM cooling. I ghetto rigged a 200mm fan to be blowing from the side into the G10/780, and it dropped VRM temps by 5C after 15min of testing Unigine Heaven.




This is not something I keep permanently, just something I wanted to test out.

Ah well, I see biggrin.gif. The china mod thingy isn't a option for me, since I live in Europe. What makes you think, that the midplate wont work? The holes look lke I could just put the screws through it and pull the G10 down on it. Or is there anything I'm missing?

From these Pictures it does just look like that the G10 does hold on the Asetek cooler and doesn't even touch the PCB or the "heat sink" on the Titan X.

I'm confident that you will be able to get those or similar parts mailed to you via eBay, Alibaba, or some other source.

The reason why I'm skeptical that the mid plate will have to be removed is because it is much thicker than any I have seen before, but the bigger issue is all of the protruding pieces around the edges. I could be wrong, because it's just a picture from one angle, but it looks as if there will be some interference from that mid plate. Even with the fan removed.

Go ahead and try it, I want it to work,and it's in your best interest to keep it attached, I'm just saying based on that picture, it doesn't look like it will fit.

From my understanding the only hight affectng component is the Pump. It is the only thing that does contact with the PCB. If I use long enough screws I should be able to make it. I'll definitly try it and I definitly hope that it will work smile.gif. Thanks for your thoughts.

Well, there is a fixed amount of height clearance between the PCB and the bracket that holds the pump and fan to the card.

This image gives you a good side-view of the gap between bracket and card.




A member at Linustechtips, ChrisRK, posted the clearance from PCB to bracket is a shade over 13mm. That's from PCB, which is with what the pump makes contact, not the base plate. I'd measure from PCB to tip of the tallest piece of the base plate and see what you get, that'll give you your answer.

Thank you Destrekor for that link.

@Evoly

Here is a picture your provided, and this is what I am seeing, all of these plastic looking things that protrude from the mid plate, they look to be much longer than 13.6mm, but I could be wrong. I'm going off of a single picture from just one angle.

NZXT did reply and mentioned not to use the base place because it "won't work properly". So, How many / how big heatsinks would you recommend for great overclocking? VRAM heatsink also requierd?

Would they be okay or are they to low profile for reasonable heat dissipation?

http://www.akasa.com.tw/update.php?tpl=product/product.detail.tpl&no=181&type=Cooling%20solutions&type_sub=VGA%20Cooler&model=AK-VMC01-BK

After a quick research, this are all heatsinks I could find in my country:

Alumic - Black 13 x 13 x 4mm
Alumic - Silver 14 x 13 x 6,5mm
Alumic - Black 15 x 15 x 15mm
Alumic - Silver 20 x 14 x 6mm
Alumic - Black 7 x 7 x 14mm
Copper - Copper 12 x 13 x 4mm
Copper - Copper 17 x 12 x 5mm
Copper - Copper 10 x 10 x 14mm
Copper - Black 8 x 8 x XXmm (~same as a PCI motherboard slot)
Copper - Copper 14 x 14 x 14mm
Copper - Copper 6,5 x 6,5 x 12mm
Copper - Copper 14 x 14 x 9mm

@Evoly

VRAM you dont need to worry about.

VRMs, those ones you linked will work well. I recommend buying some thermal pads to go with them. Scrape off the included tape, clean bottom with isopropyl alcohol and place on top of thermal pads on the VRMs that I highlighted in one of my earlier pictures.

Why would you choose thermal pads over thermal tape? Could you recommend some? I actually didn't know that you could "mount" something to thermal pads. I just know them from the stock coolers and they just fly arround by demounting the cooler biggrin.gif.
