Rebuilt my loop. Added a rad and 4x QDCs so that I can easily remove the GPUs or CPU from the loop pretty much on the fly. Will be much easier to remove GPUs during modding and testing.

The apogee CPU block sucks though. My old air cooler worked better.

totally missed that. and he is measuring from the caps. I see that now.

I didn't think of that >< is there any other good read points?

added caps on the front...man that OCP is tiny. Think I'll ask the local radio/tv guy to use hot air on it I can't get it of with my solder iron

Good idea man, gotta love the heater cores. Getting ready to get mine back into action soon.

The blue connector looks like it for measuring the input voltage for vgpu & vmem, so was wondering if you are doing mods at the input that you wanted to monitor.
Thats my pic actually... I made it for Patch to accompany the 5870 I mod'd for him a while back...


@ Pizza nice going on the install... ! Now..why do you have worse temps : ..just on CPU or all around?

Just on CPU. The GPUs are holding ~5C lower then before. They like the new rad. My CPU temps spike higher with the apogee block then they did with the ZeroTherm Nirvana. The idle temps look great, but during load the CPU runs ~60C and spikes to 75C. The Nirvana held 68C and only spiked to 72C. When I was cleaning out the blocks the other day I noticed that the CPU block has a really thin copper block. This would account for the power handling of consistent load temp.

I can't get to remove the VR for the OCP mod on my 5870. Solder tip is probably to big and I can't get to warm the solder tin enough..
I'm really thinking of picking up a hot air station for this..and it will serve me very well for Volt mods in the future.

Kris, my experience is not massive, but I've now removed 15-20 SMRs. I've abandoned going back and forth quickly between the sides. Now I just use the tip on one end of the resistor and apply firm steady tangential pressure. After doing a few this way it's become a lot easier, and the method works particularly well for tiny resistors like the 5870 OCP mod. They no longer fly across the room .

A small, hot, tip certainly does help. It's also become easier now that I have digital temp control - a few seconds at 800 F does the trick.

hi again. in terms of capping my 8800gt, for capping the vcore, where do i put the caps? can i put it from the vmeasure point to gnd?



like in the above image, there is a line of smds/smrs(not sure which) with gnd on one side and the v measure points on the other, so can i put the ground side of a capacitor on the gnd side and the other on the vmeasure point? and do i need to put them on all them? or are they all linked, like i can put a 6.3v 1000uf cap over the top of any one on the bottom row and it will help?

if im on the wrong track let me know please
