Thats probably for the memory. I wouldnt worry about that right now if you arent going to be trying to push the memory hard. Fan really should be adequate.

I would put some heat sink(s) on it. Fan can be enough if you keep your VRAM on stock and if the fan can produce enough pressure to push the heat off the mosfets.

I received my Titan X Pascal Yesterday. I will try to install the KraKen G10 on it tomorrow. thumb.gif The card stock is a beast wow!
post #5744 of 6447
So, yesterday i decied to put togheter my Kraken G10/H55 with my EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti SC GAMING ACX 2.0+.

Power target is 110%, +110Mhz to the gpu clock and +300Mhz on memory clock.

PrecisionX says 1451Mhz Gpu clock and 3800Mhz Memory clock when benchmarking.

I used a 25x25x16mm copper shim and Arctic Silver 5 paste.
Everything was wiped clean before joining all the parts togheter. And there was not much problem putting the items togheter.

I have a Fractal Design Define 5 case with a H100 240mm radiator in the front for the cpu as an intake with Noctua nf-f12 fans (700-900rpm) in push mode.

The H55 radiator sits in the back as exhaust in pull mode with one Noctua nf-f12 fan. Full power to the radiator via fan connect on MB, fan is spinning at 1200rpm.

To the problem, the card is idle at 29-31c and max load Firestrike is 69c and about 71c(!) in Heaven benchmark.

I have disassembled and reassembled the parts twice, opened the whole sidepanel and front door without any noticeable difference in degrees.
The case is otherwise dead silence wich is an improvement from stock fans on gpu but it seems abit hot.

Anyone have any tips? Should i put the 240 radiator at top and put 2xNoctua NF-P14S Redux 1500 PWM fans in the front instead?
Or go push/pull on the H55? Maybe put the H55 in the bottom?

Any advice would be great.

Best regards

I think the h55 just is not good enough. I think it's the coldplate's fault. My h55 on my gtx 1080 hit 62-65c (at 2126mhz), and that's a 180w gpu compared to your 250w. For my new titan x I went with an evga hybrid kit instead, and it hits 59c (2025mhz). So lower temps compared to the h55 while being a pretty large amount hotter (250w). Both ran with the same nf-f12 on the rad as well.

EDIT: Actually now that I think about it, it may be your copper shim's fault rather than the h55 I'm not sure. My temps are probably higher than everyone else's due to the amount of heat my nh-d14 is blowing literally right into the rad.

Well i have tested two different copper shims. Same result im afraid :/

Now I moved the H55 to the bottom exhausting w/pull, put 2x140 Noctua fans as intake in the front and the 240 radiator up top as exhaust w/pull. And one 140 fan at the back to finish it off.

Still hitting 70c on Heaven benchmark and about 66c in Firestrike.

The radiator also has a small electric noise, like when a lampsocket is about to go.

Should i really try to reassemble the kraken and the gfx once more or call it a day?

Edit: Just hit 75c in a game on Overwatch.

Edit2: After a new reassemble and going push/pull (full speed) on H55 placement in the back. And 2x 140 Noctua in the front Firestrike and Heaven is now down to 62-63c.
Still thinking about returning the H55 and go H110 instead.

Got a new G10 and an X61 is coming tobe its companion!

Got a question about removal of tabs on EVGA 980ti midplate.
How easy are they to cut? or better asked from which material is the midplate?

The copper shim idea (25x25x2mm) ain't working too great, tried remounting a few times, temps reach 74c under full load after an our using an older X31 i had laying around.
I have an NZXT Manta case, and maybe one of the issues for my heat is that i have an X61 on front intake for CPU, so perhaps another X61 on top exhaust will handle heat dissipation better for hotter air.

Any thoughts?

Im thinking of cutting those midplate tabs aswell, cant be that hard with a multitool.
post #5750 of 6447
Well main question is from which material it is made, i mean, if its Aluminium, then a simple cutting motor at 5-6k rpm would do, if its harder though...
