Pictorial Guide - Icy Vision on GTX570

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Here is a pictorial guide on how to install the Gelid's Icy onto a GTX570.

If you are not happy with the stock cooling of your GTX570, this can be an alternative.
Note post#4 has some temperature numbers:

Ambient temp = 18C
Under stock cooling: 44-48C idling; 83-90C gaming/full load
Under Icy Vision with stock fans: 36-39C idling ; gaming/full load not yet tested
Under Icy Vision with 2 Gelid Wing 9 fans: 28-31C idling

My comment: while I have no doubt that an Icy can be better than the stock cooling, but I do not understand why the above stock cooling temp is so high. My GTX570 idles now at 34C (ambient temp 20C) with stock cooling fan profile (40% speed). So, 44-48C idle temp is really high. Perhaps it is highly overclocked? But relativity still applies, ie the relative drop of temp before and after installation.
