Aftermarket cooling solutions for ATI HD 5850 - Page 2

post #11 of 71
i just installed the twin turbo pro on my 5850.

Heres our victim: A power Color 5850





Heres the back, where i have to remove the screws to seperate the the board from the reference cooler.





all seperated, you can see where the cooler hits the GPU and where the thermal pads are:





Here you can see i need to remove about 8 screws(more on that in a minute), so I can seperate that black metal plate from the rest of the junk, so i can reinstall it.





Heres the GPU all cleaned of its cheap goop. All shiny!





Heres everything separated (and if you notice on the bottom piece, i broke it, 2 screws would not come out, and the plastic actually broke as i was trying to get them out! This cooler better work now! ) Its only a $300 video card, no biggie





heres the back plate, reinstalled.(the part i wasnt sure would work)





screws back in!





View from the bottom. As you can see on the right, some of the fins hit the DVI port, I have to cut/bend about 11 of them to get it to fit)





close up of the bottom (so you can see how close it sits to the base)





view from the top, so you can see the clearance for the heat pipes.





finally, installed!!!





itrs running like a champ.

If you remember i cant run the reference fan past 40% because it sounds like a jet engine. This cooler, I can run at 100, and you cant hear it at all! Its silent!

Now on to the quick stats:

Reference coolerfan 40%)

stock is 725/1000 Volts 1.08

I stopped at 850/1170 temps GPU/MEM were 62C/71C (100% load)thats about as comfortable as i was willing to get. Volts 1.175

With the Turbo Pro temps went to 46C/68C

quick test I OCed to 925/1200 and it was 51c/72c.

loving it. Better cooling on GPU, it keep the Mem as cool (most aftermarket coolers are having a hard time keeping the mem cool without the stock baseplate) as the reference cooler, and silent!

What were your VRM temps before and after?

If I'm reading it correctly: 71C with reference cooler and 68C with TT Pro (at 100% load). He said GPU/MEM remember? Well, I hope this it what he ment anyway

Nothing wrong with bradyapba confirming it though

Merlin read it right. But I have done a few more tweaks (read, tightened the screws better!) Ill try to be more clear on my VRM temps:

This is with reference fan at 40%(loudest i could stand), TTP at 90%(doesnt really matter, you cant hear it at 40 or 100%)

VRM temps: All at 100% load after 10 minutes

Stock:

Reference Cooler:50-52C
Arctic cooler:46-48C

850/1170 V at 1.175:

Reference Cooler:70-72C
Arctic Cooler: 62-64C

925/1200

Reference Cooler: Didnt test
Arctic Cooler: 68-70C

i consider rather impressive, as most have had a hard time controlling the VRM temps, i think the TTP does a great job at it.

Just so I don't have to start another thread. I just ordered a Powercolor 5850 1gb. I currently have a Zalman VF2000 on my 4890. Can I use this on the 5850? I like the cooler a lot and it keeps my 4890 nice and chilly.

did the mounting holes change from the 4870/90 change to the 5850?

yes, i would say it would fit, it says must be 75.2 mm only, and thats whats on the 5850.

But, you will have a problem with no VRM cooling. you will need a thermalright vr3/4 as well if your going to use the 2000.

i figured i would leave the plate on to keep the ram and vrm in check. if i need to make it fit i can always break out the dremel, it's been getting dusty as of late

edit:
here's a little research i should have done:
"The distance between the mounting holes of the Radeon HD 5850 cooler is the same as on the Radeon HD 4870/4890 (75.5 millimeters), so you can try to install an alternative cooling system on this card. For example, a Thermalright T-Rad2 with two 92mm fans (1500rpm)."

it will fit with the stock plate, from what i can see, problem is that plate will need some sort of active cooling, that one fan, not near the vrms, trying to get through those really tight fins of the 2000, is not going to cool those really hot vrms on the 5850. The stock plate needs decent active cooling on it, to be effective at all.
