GTX 460 / 560 / 560 Ti aftermarket (air) cooler (non-reference) list - Page 43

post #421 of 676
Maybe I wasn't clear.. This is WITHOUT the second card frown.gif
I've got the Cooler master 690 ii Advanced..

I've just tried adding a 80mm side fan directly on the GPU, results : a 4 degree increase idle temperature..

Currently :
1x 140mm in(front) 120mm in (bottom)
1x 140mm out(top) 1x 120mm out (top)

1x 120mm fan setted on Mugen aimed towards topfan..

Ill attach a pic : http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/546/p1010548s.jpg/

As you can see... Most of the cables are also setted in the backplate.. So the airflow should be quite clean..

Wow single card and your temps hit 88*C! Since your from the Netherlands, I'm pretty sure the ambient temps are way lower than where I come from (tropical country).

Ok so refresh me again did you buy this brand spanking new? Because if you did I would send it back in or if it's still covered by warranty try and have it RMA'd. Those temps are just not right.

Just did yesterday, they say I could RMA it, but if they say 'fu, it aint broken' it's on my expenses... Kind of debating with them..

Ambient temperatures are here around 19/20 degrees Celsius. Was experimenting a bit with a extra 120mm fan, hovering it over places to see if it cools better.. Best drop was 1-2 degrees.

It's still dead high..

Now planning on getting a 2nd GTX460, sending the first one for RMA.

are you on dual screen monitor?

if you are, 80 is the norm for Palit GTX 460

I have one too wink.gif
I have been debating with them for a RMA with better cooling for months and they start ignoring my e-mails..

imagine your GPU put 80degs. can you imagine the heat on your VRAMS? -.- is a lousy brand with 2 years warranty. I regretted getting it !

For some odd reason, putting it in slot #3 of my motherboard, dropped the temp about 10 degrees... I'm still like ***... I don't get it.. Airflow should be just fine!

So I recently picked up a Palit GTX460 1GB Sonic, and the stock fan drives me crazy with noise above 40%. I'm looking to swap it for an aftermarket and the Scythe Setsugen 2 looks like a decent option that isn't too expensive (I'm going to end up paying $60 for the card so a cooler that is just as expensive doesn't make much sense...)

However, I'm concerned about the VRM cooling, so I'm probably going to get some MOSFET sinks from PTS. Instead, should I consider spending the extra dough for the Zerotherm Coolmaxx 4000? I like how it's more of a full-length solution, and it looks way better, but it's more expensive and won't necessarily perform better. I don't think anyone here has posted a comparison between the cooling efficiency of the two, although people have asked... anything?

For future reference I popped out my GTX460 and measured - the top DVI slot is 30mm from the PCB and 30mm from the mounting holes. The TT2 doesn't even come close to fitting :\ At least I know the dimensions now...

I'm assuming I can throw a set of these on the vram that are without sinks on my Palit 460 gtx sonic platinum @1GB and a Scythe Setsugen 2 to replace the stock cooling.

Temps are currently hitting 74c using the card to crunch SETI@home or play DX11 stuff like BF3 beta but the stock fan sounds horrid above 40% speed.

I use the enzotech heatsinks on my card but it uses an aftermarket cooler. I'm not too sure about the clearance between the shroud and heatsink of the sonic platinum. If you can measure that and it's 14mm or more you should be good (height of the enzotech heatsinks). Make sure you measure from the top of the vrm's though to get an accurate measurement.

I was planning on taking the stock cooler off and adding a Scythe Setsugen 2 in its place as it seems to be the easiest one to find in the UK that will fit the 1GB version. I assume that VRM heatsinks are a good idea in addition to cooling fan?
EDIT - maybe these in fact since they are 8mm tall rather 14mm
