Added a couple fans to help cool the gpu on my gf3 and 9700pro. Used a piece of plexi, hole saw, 60-80mm fan adapter (to focus airflow), and two pipe holders to bend and hold top fan blowing on back of the gpu.

Later model adding duct through pci blower.

Intel Stock HSF mod + GT 220 cooler for VRMs



The same GT 220 cooler back in the day cooling my 290 Trixx



repurposed Palit 570 HS with80mm fan after I watercooled the Aorus 1080ti in first picture



1080ti before watercooling

Wow I think you're hands down the King Ghetto Cool Tech so far! yessir.gif

I know it has been said that the backplate cooling on the Aorus did not help temps however I disagree and in fact I think specific conditions and pre-requisites first need to first be met before anything measurable/substantial could be done. For example I think the GPU needs to be placed under a high workload in a loop for about an hour before you would be ready to start testing with and without..

I too am curious if you recorded any measurements.

Very well done, I'm quite impressed!

The 290 got a 10 degree drop in VRMs iirc which was huge back in the day. The VRMs had a massive delta T back then (I think 70-80 degrees routinely) so it benefited a lot from the mod.
The Aorus didn't actually drop as much as you'd expect, the intel HSF dropped the temps by 4-5 degrees same as the big palit sink, the difference was the big palit HS also dropped VRAM temps significantly due to bigger coldplate.

Though I didn't take a photo, I also strapped a H80i to the core too but that didn't improve on the Palit/intel HSF more than 1 degree. That being said, we're talking load temps ranging from 65->60 degrees. I think the load temps were too low to significantly be affected by the mod, the biggest bottleneck in the thermal transfer became the Fibreglass PCB so throwing more cooling power at it was only 10% or so efficient due to low delta T already, I doubt even a full coverage block at the rear would've dropped temps by more than 1-2 degrees over the H80i. That being said, if this card was running at 80 degrees or so, I would've expected the mod to drop load temps by 10-15 degrees which is more significant.

Wow.. IMO 4-5C is a LOT.. I would be very happy with that. applaud.gif
