also.. has anyone thought of just cutting the old shroud. or do you not want to void the warranty?
I kept mine because I didn't want to void the warranty, and I'll be going SLI soon, and I don't think it will fit.

yea, voiding the warranty on a $200+ less than 3 month old card doesn't sit well with me.

wrt the 80mm vs 120mm, I have extra 120's and I don't really want to spend money cuz it makes the wife angry

The 120mm will definitely work, it will just hang off a bit, and it might be slightly harder to mount.

how do you think using a 92 mm fan and cutting out the fins would work as a shroud?
post #146 of 425
Well.
my fan stopped working AGAIN on my GTX260.
so I slapped on an 80mm Tornado.


All I can say is, THANK GOD for fan controllers. This thing spins at 4,650RPM and sounds like a mini tornado. lol

Temps aren't much better.

yep.
45C idle @ 2900RPM
60C COD4 load @ 3100RPM
55C COD4 @ 4,650RPM

I run overvolted from the stock 1125mv to 1188mv so mine will run a little warmer anyways.


I took the dremel to the casing to open the hole up to match the 80mm fan and used thin weather stripping to seal it and tape to cover the end cap so air is forced through the fins.
