Mem on these cards at best 380 max i had mine set to 455 but that was pushing it

I would say anything above +350 mem is issue prone just a heads up my Boost tops out at 1580 so i have nothing to be ashamed about smile.gif

I own a reference GTX 980 and I almost decided to go for EK-Thermosphere (a universal gpu waterblock). What kind of passive heatsinks do you guys recommend? What size?
post #6235 of 10534
If you own a reference card, they have full coverage block for it..

I modded the bottom of the Evga Plate to fit the thermosphere without having to use the Copper Heatsinks I have in the first few pics. Enzotech Sells Um though.

Yes, I do know that. It's just I tend to upgrade my gpu often, I figured it would be cheaper and less hassle to get universal blocks with copper heatsinks.

RMA? Those words have never been in my Vocabulary biggrin.gif I wouldn't return it for the world. I'd rather burn it and put it through hell before I would give it back.

Those are exactly the Heatsinks. You would just need 8 i believe. I bought 12 not realizing that the 4 facing the front of the window of your case would be covered by the black part of the EK Therm. rolleyes.gif

These are after the Mod.
