The good is the 200 and 400 series gpu cover plate is the same size so my heatsink mates properly. Ill get started on this as soon as I get home.
Got the bracket holes drilled out and the heatsink mounted. I'll post pics tomorrow. Did a quick temp check with Metro 2033 and it seems like the GE cooler is a good one, its just having two cards next to each other is killing the temps (I already knew this just stating it). The air just circulates around these heatsinks and just keeps getting hotter. I keep a big fan next to my tower and turn it on when temps get too high for my liking. Gonna have to get a bigger case to get the motherboard up higher off the bottom of the case.

Now that there's a Golden Edition GTX 560, I am willing to bet that any Golden Edition GTX 465 with no number on it simply has the same golden Twin Frozr II that MSI is now using on these Golden Edition GTX 560s.

Newegg's photos are of an actual physical piece of their inventory. Did you see their photos of the Golden Edition GTX 465? Its number is 0447:

Yeah thats what me an him came up with.
Or that just had cooler still that never had numbers printed on them.
Either way the cooler is the same, just no number.

The box has the number on it too. lol

The original GE heatsink is longer than the 560TI.

I have both of them.
post #4896 of 5083
A little modding and it's a go. For the people that don't know what I'm doing. I'm putting a Thermalright GTX heatsink (meant for 200 series) onto a 400 series card. The gpu's are the same size on both series but the bolt patterns are not. I ordered brackets that said would work with the 400 series but it was meant for Thermalright's spitfire heatsink. The GTX has too much meat on the gpu matting area.










Oopsy. Back brace has to come off cause I don't want to cut into it.








This is with 1 card installed. I used card 1553 with stock heatsink to take idle and gaming temps. (Heatsink was a little dirty).

This is idle with 40% fan.




This is after playing Metro for 15 minutes with 100% fan.





I put the gtx heatsink on card 1774. It has a slightly higher voltage. Notice how the fan speed is at 40%. Using a 120mm speed controlled fan.

Idle with half turned knob.




Gaming 15 minutes with full turned knob.





So as you can see the stock GE's heatsink is a good one. It's having two of these next to each other kills the temps. At times I was having card 1 idle at 61c with 2d surround on. The air just circulates around these cards.

I had to RMA my regular 465 twin frozr to MSI for horrible artifacts.

To my pleasant surprise, when I got it back there was a golden edition in the box!

I don't actually have the card in front of me, but it is numbered (in the 2000's).
It's number 2816.

It runs everything I play on full, so I don't think I'll be unlocking it for now.

It seems sort of weird that they would have one of these kicking around to send to me if they would send someone who had an actual golden edition one without a number.

Might be a refurb. Check page 1 and see if anyone has had it before. Of course there's a lot that were sold with people that aren't on OCN.

I have one that artifacts and freezes up my pc even at stock clocks. Need to send it off.

I guess I decided to unlock it anyway...
Can't believe how easy it was to do.

This probably is mostly due to the overclocking built into the bios I used, but going from stock: under stress-testing it runs 55% faster, maxes at 23 degrees hotter (with much more fan), and draws on average 110 more watts (using a kill-a-watt).
