Ummm, h2o n00b here so pardon my asking this...

...but don't the RAMsinks go on the top side of the card since heat rises? Seems to me that putting RAMsinks on the bottom side of the card is going to draw more heat to the RAM and not expel it as efficiently as it could.

Nice one Ceadder

If you were serious: Heatsinks are on the card the same way the stock cooler is

Also, thats why you can buy GPU backplates to cool the other side of the chips

Do the backplates really cool anything? I thought they were just for looks. I took off the backplate on my 6950 to install an ek block and it doesn't seem to be making contact with anything.

File down the pins a bit for clearance if you don't want to go w/ extensions (which is what I would go for )

Just for the ram chips on the backside. Most cards are using higher density ram chips and this allows manufacturers to put them on the top gpu side. Also, those w/ ram on the back will most likely have a back plate included. Most of the backplates I've seen are for garnish only.
post #12536 of 105836
Well if my 5770 didn't have RAM on the back I wouldn't be serious I guess.

Too bad I cannot find a back plate for a Reference Design 5770. If I wasn't going to be spending over $480 on Cooling I might have requested a 69** series card instead.

Gonna go with everything but GPU block. Decided a Full Coverage block is more important since my board under 100% load on the stock cooler likes to flirt with 58c when I'm gaming. Graphics card never goes above 55c. I think you know how easy THAT decision was. Just wish the EK block was Copper instead of Shiny Nickel. Hope I can get them to change it.

Consider this then. Go to their website and see if they have a kit for your GPU. I didn't see 5770 listed but 5870 is but I am not sure if it's the same layout. May need to do some research. What I like about it is if you later change the GPU it's a matter of simply getting the right kit (like $6). Good for both Nvidia and AMD GPU's. I had very good results with it and would get it again. The reviews on this cooler are not hype. Excellent option if you do not plan on SLI/X-Fire'ing since it lmost doubled the thickness of the card.

the chips on the front and on the back are completely different silicon, they both need heat sinks. you cannot cool a chip from the opposite side because the PCB is in the way and would insulate it, so you have to put the sinks on whatever side the chip is actually on. Also, the whole "heat rises" thing is completely void in computes because it only applies to natural convection, but because we use FANS the cooling in computers is by forced convection, so as long as air flows over the fins, it does not matter what direction and heat sink is in.

I'm not too worried about cooling my Card(s) at the moment. Just the MainBoard and CPU. Batmobile cooler is working exceptionally well. ATi drivers may suck but their coolers are pretty well thought out in my experience.

Thanks for that kbmx. One of my Elevator don't go all the way to the top moments.

My non-reference 460's have no chips on the back side. I used the same RamSinks. If you download full resolution and zoom in on this picture, you can see how I bent the pics sideways to clear the 1/4" tubing. And yes, 1/4" works fine.

I will never buy a non-reference again if there is any chance I will want to water cool it.
