I've never seen a third party water block for a GTX295 and have no experience with them.

Okay, I found a link for a Danger-Din GTX295, but it is more expensive than the GTX295 itself, so I think I'll pass on that LOL.

Do you have an photos of your rig?

Yes, check my sig's build log.

Hello,

I be taken of the shroud as keeps in the heat more than take it out, which then would let your fans do more of the job. Think of it like this.

Your Shroud would act more like a Heat barrier, you card is actually warm but the shroud keeps it warmer. Your Fans cool the shroud but can't actually cool the GFX card, therefore, it's not doing it right, it's cooling the wrong thing.

After taking the should off, just by that alone, the heat retained from the shroud can escape so that's cooling it off by itself and then your jet engines of coolers can at last, get it's cool air on the GFX.

If you have the money, I be getting this >Zalmin PCI Slot Cooler<<br />
The air from the cooler will hit the primary GPU which commits more heat of the both, and without the shroud, it does the job pretty dam well.

which card do you have?
i used to have this one... it was a pain in the ass to watercool.

Yes, its the dual PCB one. I actually have it idling at 45 C and only getting as hot as 60 to 68 C on a load, but the case sounds like a Jet Engine. With out the array of fans I put in the case it was idling at 60 C and getting above 80 C on a load.

I'm going to try to take the shroud off like you guys suggest and see how well that cools it down and I'll see if I can get rid of the ridiculous array of fans I had to install in the case to keep it cool.

So im also wondering how much of a temp frop youll get from taking off the shroud? Need for an update please biggrin.gif

I misunderstood. No, I do not have the X4 version of the GTX295 LOL. Holy cow that would have been expensive. Is that even real? I thought the picture was several GTX295's on top of each another and he was asking me if it was a GTX295.

I have the dual PCB variant, as opposed to the single PCB variant. I haven't removed the shroud yet, but I will get around to it soon and post the differences in temperature.

The card appears to have a sensor on it. It will not boot if the shroud has been removed. Unless anyone can tell me where the sensor is (so that I can fool the mechanism) I cannot boot the card without the shroud.

Update: For some reason, taking the shroud off loosened some connections. I put it back on and it booted. Then I took it back off, and it still booted.

So here is the deal (fans @75%):

With the shroud on:
GPU 1: 42-44 C Idle
GPU 2: 43-45 C Idle

With the shroud off:
GPU 1: 41-42 C Idle
GPU 2: 39-41 C Idle

Not a huge difference. Consider that I have pretty good air flow in the case, considering how terrible the little thing is.

Haha look at the name of the card in that pic "ati gfto...". It's a joke tongue.gif

Something like that would spontaneously combust and then teleport to the 4th dimension.
