@Powergate hopefully this does the trick! I started a thread for all 480 cooling solutions. It would be cool to see your work in there to help others out.

what about a heatsink on the backside also?
post #95 of 133
I dont think anything under those larger heatsinks can breathe. I think some ventilation holes are needed to let some heat escape, or smaller heatsinks with gaps between them.. I think thats why the back of the pcb is so hot..

I know heat rises, but if the air can go anywhere its just sitting there between the heatsink and the pcb...

I decided to cut down the stock cooler instead of creating a new bracket, GPU is going to 71°C and Vram 63°C.

So performancewise the ziptiesolution was kinda better, at least on the paper but I think that the problem is that I drowned the GPU in thermal grease so the diode is getting some heat from somewhere it shouldn't get heat.

However now I am quite satisfied with my solution since I can run the fans with the 7V line and my PC is now completely noiseless again.

That is WAY too much paste. For a die that big you shouldnt need much more than a grain of rice-sized blob running down the long axis of the die.

You are completly right and the performance should be better but when I had the cooler installed with zipties that amount of grease was neccesary so I had a buffer between the die and the heatsink because I was a bit afraid to destroy the die.

However, I am quite satisfied anyway so I won't change it anymore for a while.. but still, thank you for your constructive criticism.

Edit:

I replaced all that paste with a reasonable amount.. temps are much better now, just had to try how much difference it makes and it is astonishing..



However, the GPU runs at 1200 Mhz max for now but I've set it to 1350 @ 1,13 V.. I don't like that.
