GTX 460 / 560 / 560 Ti aftermarket (air) cooler (non-reference) list - Page 66

After consulting the list on page 1 of the thread, it seems that the Thermalright Spitfire will be an amazing solution to my top card. Does anyone have any input on how the temps might change should I venture and get one for my top card?

The Thermalright Spitfire would also be a viable solution for you! You just need to make sure you have something blowing onto your VRMs so they don't overheat. The temp difference is really something that depends on your setup and ambient temps, but I wouldn't be surprised if it performed better than the HR-03 since it will directly sit in front of your side door fan. Then again, that's pure speculation on my part.

Thanks Mark! In researching the Spitfire, I'm at a loss as to which VRM heatsink will work for my cards - is the VRM-R5 correct? And do I need a Bolt Thru Kit in addition?

The total of Spitfire parts comes to roughly $100 including shipping - sounds a bit expensive just to bring temps down 10-20C across the board. Is it worth it in your opinion?

I would go with what is cheaper and then get (I personally bought these) the little copper heatsinks from Enzotech and it does the job nicely. I'm pretty sure it should come out cheaper.

VRM/Mosfet Heatsinks

Memory Heatsinks

These work much better than the aluminum ones but the ones below work good as well if you want to save on some cash.

Spitfire is way to expensive.

I have found my cooler with 12 euro, second-hand (stores does not have it) in my country, Romania.

TEMPS:
Before
Gaming: 75 - 78 degree
Furmark: 104 (throtling) jet airplane

After
Gaming: 53 - 55 degree
Furmark: 75 (same sound like idle)


I use a NZXT 120 fan that is pretty silence. I am more than satisfied.
I own the cooler with 4 pipes. You can find the new cooler with 6 pipes, that is better than this with 4 pipes that i use.

Anyway, o strongly suggest that you buy a Thermalright cooler

G'Day Fellas,
I currently have my old Gigabyte GTX 460 that I want to use for a benchmark, But I can't because the stock cooler (Windforce 2X) has broken off and I'm outside the warranty. This GPU doesn't use the default cooler design as the ASUS, EVGA, MSI and so on. Does anyone have (had) this card and if so can you suggest a cooler for it or maybe sell me there old Windforce 2X?

The windforce uses a reference pcb so you should be able to use any cooler on the list in page 1. I personally would choose the Gelid Icy Vision since it can cool even a 580 pretty decently.

I remember buying an Arctic Twin Turbo II back in the day and it didn't fit the design. I was told that my GPU was not an original reference design.

I'm looking for something relatively cheap. I will only be benching a couple of times, Temps aren't that important but keep in mind they need to be respectable.

If that's the case the 2nd list (1 GB list) should fit your Gigabyte card. Though if your card has only a single DVI on it or if it has dual DVIs but aren't on top of each other the Gelid Icy Vision should still fit.

Well, after installing the new 320.18WHQL drivers my temps have dropped! Playing Skyrim now tops out at about 82C on my top card! About 9C cooler than with previous drivers! I also OC'd a lil bit more on both cards. They are both 1000mV, 816 CC and 1972 MC. The odd thing is the CC doesn't go above 810 (as shown in afterburner) and the MC goes up to 1980. The max memory use is 1019.

Playing Civ 5 has not changed and the top card still reaches a max of 98C frown.gif I wonder if I disable SLI before playing will change something... I'll report back with an answer soon.
post #660 of 676
Well... I would never had expected what I witnessed. I disabled SLI and played Civ5 - top card temp didn't get above 64C and the bottom card (that the monitor is connected to) got up to 59C thumb.gif

Seems whenever I want to play Civ5 I disable SLI. Or is there some kind of configuration file that needs to be modified for it to run properly? What gives??? mad.gif
