It's just the way the clearances were designed into the factory heatsinks.

Would this do anything bad?
I cut the gpu opening bigger on my faceplate(midplate) to fit my uni block on with no problems so far. I took it all the way out to the small dots on the faceplate. Almost like they were a guideline to fit a block in there

Can some one help me understand how to setup this Fan Profile in BIOS using Maxwell BIOS Tweaker 136?
Thanx.

This is a huge help! Thank you!

How did you cut it open? As in what tool did you use?

And by dots, do you mean the screw holes?

Finally, what cooler did you change it to fit.

not the screw holes but just some small indents in the faceplate (my reference one anyways) they are very small and close to each screw hole but you shouldn't need to cut into the actual screw holes. I used various dremel attachments to make it fit my supremacy vga universal block. Mostly grinding wheels and such. I don't have a ton of dremel experience. But do make sure you've got new thermal pads

I had to take mine out to these dimples, just until the dimples were completely gone for the EK supremacy VGA block, which has a 49.5mm copper block according to their spec sheet. I'm not sure of the block size on the h110, couldn't find it

Hello wonderful people! I am building a new system in the near future and have been going back and forth on which GPU to use. This is a mini-ITX system that is very small (the case is the Sugo SG13). I want to use a GTX980 in this build as I know it will fit (just barely! I have 0 mm of spare room biggrin.gif but it has been done). Specifically, it looks like only the EVGA models will fit. I was thinking of getting the EVGA Superclocked Blower card (04G-P4-2982-KR). Specifically, I want this card because it will blow hot air out of this tiny case rather than dump it in. My question is, how are the temps and noise levels of this card for those who own it? Would be it better to get the SSC ACX 2.0 instead? I just think that a blower card is better in such a small form factor. Thanks!

I think it mostly depends on what you will be using your new build for. If its primary purpose is a HTPC then the clocks will rarely go over 1190 MHz and fan noise will be minimal. On the other hand if you will be gaming the temps rise and your fan noise could be horendous with a blower type video board. That case looks like it has plenty of airflow with all of the vents in the sides so an ACX dual fan cooler might be the way to go. The members at EVGA forums could probably give you more detailed info about the differences: http://forums.evga.com/

Thanks very much! This build will be for gaming primarily. I think you're right, there should be enough venting for an ACX cooler. I will definitely check of the EVGA forums. Thanks! thumb.gif
