VF3000F for gtx 480 unboxing and installation. With quick tests

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Just got my VF3000F for my gtx 480. and this is unboxing

These coolers either come with gtx 480 ram sink or 470/465 ram sink and make sure you check which cooler it is for before purchasing


Box(front)
You can see this "pretty" green cooler from the box. I personally don't mind the color... Seriously. I don't stare at my vga while using my computer...

Box(back)
Specs:
Dimensions 239(L)x 98(W) x 51(H) mm
Base- Pure Copper
Fin Pure Aluminum
Heatpipe- Pure copper
Fan Speed: 1400 ~ 3000 rpm 15% + -
Noise Level: 18 ~ 33 dBa 15% +-

What you get

- VF3000F

4x spring, 4x Nipple, 4x Fixing nut.. etc(got lazy)
Fanmate2 (fancontroller) and cable and double sided tape

Reverse
Here you can see the copper finish of the cooler. Has 3 heat pipes going through the aluminum fins. 3 to the left 2 to the right (when installed)

Copper Base
Decent I think?


By mistargill at 2010-10-04

Ram/Vrm Heat Sink

This is the heatsink for the gtx 480. There are 2 skus that comes with either 480 or 465/470 so make sure you check before purchasing

Installation

Took me a bit more than an hour to finish installing.
Minor difficulties here and there. The cooler being a 3 slot cooler there were clearance problem with my ud3p's Sata ports. Basically out of 6, top left 2 ports are unusable. I had to move them to my primary 2 purple ports


Here is mine with Stock cooler. I have the backplate on mine which we will have to remove







Rubber washer

Little tricky with rubber washer and PET washers since they both have stickies. I used small Phillips screw driver to handle them.

Removing Stock Cooler

I had mine with EVGA backplate on it. Which is not compatible with the VF3000F(Yes I tried).
After the back part of screws are all removed. Remove the bracket as well.





It's easy to remove when you've done it before. I removed mine before and replaced the TIM with GELID Extreme.

PET washer

By mistargill at 2010-10-04



Applying thermal paste

Ermm.. yeah I didnt have to put the paste on the gpu just yet but thankfully vram heat sink is tall so it didn't smudge it when I flipped it.


By mistargill at 2010-10-04

Installing the sink
Bolt screws installed and this holds the sink in place


By mistargill at 2010-10-04


Nipple and rubber ring is next!


By mistargill at 2010-10-04

PVC Washer are for the 4 protruded ahem... nipples....


By mistargill at 2010-10-04

Get the fixing nut ready with spring like this (it snaps in place with narrow side towards the cap).
Put them on and ALMOST DONE!



By mistargill at 2010-10-04

By mistargill at 2010-10-04


All done

Sub'd. Really like how it comes with a VRM heat sink as well and not just the core heat sink.

That VRM heatsink is gorgeous! Wish it was available as a separate product, I'm very jealous!!

Good stuff

Crank up that voltage, I want to see how it handles 1.10v.

I can't believe they cost $30 more than the ATI version, same exact cooler.
