That's so retarded, it's retarded. Nothing like taking up 5 slots for an average cooler on an average card. FAIL

EDIT:... the 460 still rocks, though... not hating on it gonna grab me a few, soon

Here's two photo of my Palit GTX 460 with the v4000.




Temperature under 100% load GPU (Folding@home) were 60°c 850/1700/1800@1.050 volts with the original HS. Now 56°c 925/1850/2000 @1.125. The installation was easy (thanks mark_thaddeus ) but the v4000 is a bit larger than the card. Here's another screenshot of my desktop with msi afterburner and gpu-z

hmmm... I don't like my Musashi, I might end up throwing it on my 8800GT. With that V4000, what are the size of the fans?
I'm thinking no matter which alternative cooler I get I'm still going to need to swap the fans to the slimline Sycthe's that come with the Musashi in order for it to fit in my case.

Thread Starter 
Both fans are 92mm for the v4000 cooler

Must be tired, picked up my pccooler vga cooler box instead of the v4000!

Anyway, what MITuS-2 said after this post!

The fans are 80mm on the Deep Cool v4000, 2500±10%RPM, 40.6 CFM. And even at 100% they are very silent (about 20 dB)!
post #106 of 676
cool. the Sythes are 100mm, so they should slip on with out much fuss

OK so .. I got a Gainward GTX 460 GS - same issue as everyone else and the stock cooler is retardedly loud when it's running in 3d mode.

I bought the Accelero Twin Turbo Pro figuring how much modding could that really take. This pic shows really clearly that you would need to remove the left heatpipe to get anywhere as well as almost half the length of the heat spreaders on the left side.



I thought **** it, usually it's "you break it, you buy it" but since I already bought it, I might as well break it. I could have returned the cooler, but I'm a stubborn kind of guy.

Anyway, I figured if it would take that much modding to make the heatsink fit the card, the resulting heatsink wouldn't be much more effective than the stock one so I decided to replace the fan on the stock cooler with the Accelero ones. They're pretty easy to take off, just two plastic snap-ins and two screws hidden under a sticker.

I'll skip ahead, since noone is probably interested in the details and if they are, they can ask (I have a lot more pics).

The Accelero plastic shroud is fittable but not perfect, it does need a trim of one of the plastic edges but that's basically it. I used four paperclips to fasten it to the stock heatsink heatspreaders - you could have gone with wire strips but since the temps are uncertain and I dont know what temp plastic wire strips melt at ... paperclips at least dont melt at pc temps. Just make sure they dont touch anything on the card.

Now I could probably just have cut this cooler right down the middle and gone with one fan, but since my case will take it as it is I'm thinking the extra airflow (since the cooler is a lot longer than the card) probably wont be a bad thing anyway.

The whole thing including searching for tools, fiddling about and trying to come up with solutions, assembly and fitting in the case took exactly 2 hours and was done with a screwdriver, a boxcutter and a pair of pliers. If I had a Dremel I might have tried fitting the Accelero heatsink instead.

A picture is worth a thousand words, so here's a couple.

Materials


Test fitting


The plastic bits that had to come off


Completed


In operation


I learned a couple of things:
  • You can get pretty far with a screwdriver and some patience.
  • The stock cooler surface had a big dent in it and so does the die on the card so it probably wasn't a bad thing to re-seat it anyway and remove whatever got caught in there in factory assembly.
  • The warranty sticker is still in place since they use terrible glue on those
  • The stock heatsink does NOT allow space for any RAM heatsinks, nor are any used on the card as is.
  • A block of tiny post-its are ideal for applying thermal paste.
  • It may not be the prettiest of mods, but by god it works. The card is dead silent now. Plus I have a ton of RAM heatsinks left over - those will come in handy down the line I'm sure.

A quick followup.

Idle temp: 35C
Full load: 99C (Furmark - way heavier load than any game will throw at it)
Normal 3d use: around 65-75C

The fan either misrepresents speed or has a very odd reaction to the card's fan control. It idles at 40% like any of these cards, which is 1700-1900 RPM according to GPU-Z. When load increases the fan speed increases VERY slowly to around 2200 RPM. When it passes this mark (at around 80% fan speed), GPU-Z suddenly reports a rock steady 1700 RPM. It does this throughout the 80-100% load area.

I can't tell if the fans are spinning at 1700 or like 2500 RPM, so who knows. Just thought it was weird. Either way I'm not worried with a total-worst-case-scenario max temp of 99C.

what clock and voltage are you using with this temps?

Think there is any need for this when running stock? Haven't found a reason to overclock my 460 yet.
