GTX 460 / 560 / 560 Ti aftermarket (air) cooler (non-reference) list - Page 17

post #161 of 676
Yeah I did the Musashi post here
Those nuts are just stuck on with glue, so they come of easy as.
On the 768Mb model no fins were required to be removed, however I have removed fins from heatpipes before. Get yourself some sharp scissors and just cut the fin and basically snip around the area where it has been soldered to the heatpipe. You won't need to cut the entire way around, basically just either side and you can break the rest of the soldered contact by just pulling/pushing on the the fin.

Note that you will also need to cut out a few of the cards vents where the ports are, as the heatpipe pokes out by just a couple mm's.

I just modded my v4000 by replacing the stock fans with two ACRyan (80mm) blackfire4 fans and they work great!



Pretty psyched that max temp was just 57*C @ 900/1800/4100! Best temps I got before at these settings were at a balmy 69*C when set to the same clocks using the v4000 stock fans! In fact it even beat out my temps at the 850/1700/2000 settings by 1*C! Mind you the voltage at 850 is at 1.037v while the 900 is at 1.087v so big difference! Pretty happy here!!!

Tha's weird to have temps above 100*C! What case are you using? Do you have enough air flow in your case? Did you connect the fan header to your mobo? Or are you using the 4 pin connected to your PSU? What are you ambient temps as well?

Also check if both fans are running at their top speed, Iv'e heard some v4000 stock fans sometimes just die (I think because they're sleeved (and not ball bearing) fans and they want to be at a vertical position versus a horizontal position). If this is the case I would either RMA it or better yet do what I did (though my stock fans are not dead) and replace them with better CFM 80mm fans and enjoy the awesome temps!

Lastly, please try and fill up your signature so we can have a look see at your setup!

Well I had a friend who had his fans die and the way we found out was we removed the v4000 cooler and tried to spin both fans (one at a time of course) and see if both were spinning freely (without any bite back or resistance when you spin it). We found one fan had a hard time rotating compared to the other fan (even tried blowing at the fans, good one should spin freely) and he decided to junk his stock fan and buy a couple of 80mm fans and I just decided to follow suit!

100C+ when playing games is not normal even for stock. double check your mounting and that there is sufficient TIM applied.
