We all know the 970 G1 has 4 memory ICs on the back of the card that are just exposed, they dont have any heatsink over them because the backplate doesn't cover that specific part. (picture below)
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I'm an overclocking enthusiast and I like pushing things above stock speeds, hence my concern with these naked memory ICs. I'm guessing if you overclock your memory the temps on these little guys should rise quite a bit.

So, to overcome this building flaw, I found a seller here in my region that has aluminum heatsinks with thermal pad pre applied that would fit perfctly to cover those ICs. (picture below)
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


At that size, each aluminum heat would cover entirely 2 ICs. So 2 heatsinks, side by side, would do the job.

What do you guys think? They cost almost nothing, really cheap.
Also, is there any problem that the thermal thing is not exactly the size of the ICs? they are larger, so they would cover the whole ICs and there would be parts touching nothing (I looked here in my card, the little conductors near the ICs are leveled a little bit lower so they would touch the thermal pad nor the heatsink it self.

What do you guys think? Good idea?

I saw a thermal gun show that the G1 Gaming is the coolest card compared to the ASUS Strix (very close from my eyes) and MSI 4G. At no points were there any isolated heat pockets to worry about. I'd love to test this further myself with a temperature lazer, but I do not have the equipment.

Although the area you mentioned is hotter than anywhere else, it is still safe. Many of us here have overclocked our G1 Gaming 970's to 1600/8000 without any serious temperature issues. The only issue is the throttling at 65°C that some are experiencing, but that can be changed with a new BIOS.

Yeah, 7700Mhz on my G1 with Hynix. Big shame. Still, in games it doesn't equate to very much.

Well, I have seen a few peoples solution to the 970 without backplates sagging. I decided to prop mine up with a favorite toy.....lol




Looks like I need to take 1 block out.

EDIT: I started running Folding@Home....and my GPU temp shot up to 71-74(C). That was at stock settings with my custom fan running. Oh, and the side of my case was off too. I removed the block and the temp dropped back down to where it normally is when folding, about 60°(C).

Anyone have an idea as to why leveling the card would make the temps go up?

was the block pushing on the fan shroud and stopping the fan? my support is on the edge otherwise my fan hits the shroud.

I'm holding my card up with a stiff mini USB extension cable which came with a GPS stick I have. The PCIe cables pull down the card even more but fortunately for me I can put something above the drive cage to hold up the GPU. My case is a Corsair 350D

I've seen that review on Guru3D too. It seems at stock it doesn't hit high temps really. Although on that image we can see that those little things (can someone say what they really are?) are over 60 degrees, maybe 65 I guess, that with an open air build in a controlled temperature room. My worries are mostly because:

1- My card is overclocked; (higher temps/stress on the card)
2- I have a small case; (higher temps inside the case)
3- Soon will be doind 2way SLi; (1cm gap between cards, worst airflow, more heat inside the case)
4- I live in a very hot place and have no AC in my room. (30 degrees Celsius room temp is common)

And those heat sinks cost almost nothing. I'm only unsure if they are safe to use, if the thermal adhesive is safe. Even a few degrees lower temps would worth the 10 bucks it will cost me.

I would be happy with 7700-7800, mine are stuck at 7400 and can't go further without artifacts frown.gif Looks like silicon lottery hit me again...

You should get some E22 cable combs for those cables will make your build look even better.

Well I have found that 2 way 970s will trade blows with my 4way 680 setup. I'm testing tri 970s now and it just destroys the 4way setup.

Just make sure you dont buy a cable comb that is too small for your cables as the E22 come in both 3mm and 4mm.
They also come in both clear see through and black.
