Edit: Forgot to ask, how are you guys controlling the fan and pump? I was thinking of using a fan splitter and then having GPU control the speed of them

The pump really needs to be on a 12V connection, I good option if you do not have any fan headers available is something like a molex plug to fan adapter. They are cheap and easy to find. The fan can be split with another I would think without issue.

Some get an adapter and plug the fan into the PWM headers on the GPU PCB.

Thanks again man, and sorry for most likely dumb questions

I'll check mobo, most I've seen only have 1 on so I guess I'll put rest on molex, and yeah was gonna get adapter so afterburner could control that fan, makes it a bit tidier too

It's an exaggerated concern in that most people blow the severity of the repercussions of not adding heatsinks to their mosfets out of proportion. Yes, it is absolutely recommended to add additional passive/active cooling to electronic components to aid in their longevity. No, your card will not "melt" or die out of nowhere. There are things such as thermal limit protections within the mosfets themselves, safe operating temperature ranges (of which most mosfets have a minimum of 100C as their max, up to 160C+ on some) and these days even higher level protections within the power delivery logic that will keep you from destroying your card that quickly. I have a pair of 560ti-448 cards that have been running overclocked in SLI on kraken g10's with no additional VRM cooling other than the fan on the bracket for 6 years. They are fine. There are users on mining forums that have been running r9's 24/7/365 and not destroyed their cards, which are notoriously power hungry and get extremely hot in the VRM area. Long story short, I agree but let's be realistic.

It's more of a technicality really than and actual worry.

On a $1k GPU I'm not taking any chances.

I put my G10 and Corsair H55 finally in my Palit 1080 Gamerock without heatsinks. Tested yesterday Unigine Heaven, FIrestrike, gaming... without any problems

The fan itself should be enough to cool the vrms. However, long term, it's possible that the vrms may overheat. Will be good to monitor the temps just to see if it's getting too high.

The main issue with the vrms comes from the R9 290 where the vrm was on the other side and there was no fan to cool it. Some users experienced vrm damage.

I don't really like putting heatsinks on as i find it's not secure. It's still best to get a gpu which comes with pre-fitted vrms heatsinks. Try to get those models where possible. It's not going to cost a lot more anyway.

Sup Guys

Does anyone know if the Enermax Liqtech 120X will fit the G10.. my fans died on the G1 gaming and have brand new Enermax Liqtech 120X sitting here. Also have a old Corsair H70...
Will either of those fit..
thx..thumb.gif

Hey man, not sure about the Enermax but the H70 definitely will fit.

Another cool video for the mod: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=weV0FlahyDo&feature=youtu.be

Bought some Artic thermal pads for the front and backplate as well to replace the oem stuff underneath the plates.

https://www.arctic.ac/worldwide_en/thermal-pad.html.. I used this in my laptop and killed the temperature by a lot.

Hey sorry for bring this up again, how's the card running? is the copper shim working?
I think the only ones with separate vrm heatsinks are msi and evga. msi has the warranty void sticker on the screw so I am planning to get evga
If you can, some pictures would be nice smile.gif

Are people seeing better temperatures with 60mm radiators? I'm thinking about trying an Arctic Cooling Liquid Freezer 120: 60mm + push/pull for only $65.
