I'm not really a fan of running my benchmarks through steam honestly biggrin.gif

Can someone tell me how much does the MSI GTX 970 cooler (heatpipe part) extend over the pcb ...I guess about 3 cm
but would require an exact measure (the card i measured about 14.5 cm in width).

Now don't quote me on this and this may need some confirmation but I think you can use the key on the standalone program, I've had 3DMark 11 and Vantage keys that I just pasted on the steam version and registered just fine, the 3DMark13 key I bought from someone else which registered in the steam version just fine as well. So the key may be universal and works for both standalone and steam version.

Did any of u tried to redo the thermal paste on the 970 gaming? If so any measurable improvements?

Im currently at 1540 Mhz core clock (+200 core + 40mv )
Max temps: 73-75 C (FarCry 4 / 3Dmark Firestrike)
(case: bitfenix prodigy so not the best airflow to the vga)

Is this a trustworthy site for backplates? Card sag is really annoying me. Or is there any chance MSI sends out backplates like EVGA did for their 970?

Haven't tried it on my golden edition and my temps can easily go to 80C in Assassin's Creed Unity. This is on a Corsair 250D with fans maxed at 80% so that it's not too noisy. The case gets hot to the touch as well.

Now I'm thinking of watercooling using G10 to get better temps. But I'm still researching more about it.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I don't know about that site personally however, if you want backplates, you can check out EKs website because they sell backplates for various cards separately from their gou blocks.

Scratch that. Won't work without the waterblock

That's bad temps, your case shouldn't get hot to the touch though.

Do your temperatures improve noticably when you take the side of your case off? Just get something like Unigine Heaven 4.0, run the loop for 10-20 minutes. Take the side of your case off, wait 5 mins, then run it for 10-20 mins again and compare temps.

Let us know if you use them or find anyone else thats making them as the card sag is annoying me to. The site does say that all there plates are 3mm plexi! Thats not going to help at all with the sag imo. Ive found a 'quick' solution that includes drilling a small hole in the case an inserting a thin 3mm x 60mm bolt (not visible) at the back of the vga and it works perfectly! thumb.gif

Ive found a quick/cheap solution that stops the card sag. 3mm x 60mm bolt that sits inbetween my sata cables and its bairly visible, does the job though. perfectly 90degrees.Card sag sorted with a 3mm bolt thats not really visible.
