GTX470 + Thermalright Spitfire - Pictured

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've had my Spitfire sitting in a box since July when I sold my 5850s, so I decided to finally install it on my MSI Twin Frozr II GTX470. The results are pretty interesting.

See attachments for pics (Disregard cable management, just slapped this thing together to try it out)

I'm utilizing the VRM/memory heatsink included with the Twin Frozr II model, negating the need to install my own. To prevent possible overheating, I have a Scythe GT AP14 installed in the base of the case and a Scythe GT AP15 (Speed greatly reduced) temporarily positioned on the PSU. I was forced to do so because the CM690 II ADV cannot accommodate the Spitfire w/fan with the sidepanel installed. I'm using a 140mm NZXT fan rated at 1300RPM. It's near-silent and a solid performer.

Given an ambient temp of 21C and clock speeds of 825/1650/1800 @ 1.087v , it runs Folding@Home @ 50C.

Furmark Extreme Burn comes in at 50C as well after ~5 minutes.

The temperatures are solid, and the noise level is negligible. This fan is not audible over my other 1000RPM 140mm Xigmatek case fans. It's capable of cooling more efficiently, by about 10-20C vs the Twin Frozr II heatsink, at much lower sound levels. I can only imagine the night-and-day difference one would see vs a reference model

Also, I tried running it passively at stock clocks/voltage. It got up to about 80C in Furmark, which is perfectly acceptable, but I wouldn't feel comfortable running it passively w/o airflow over the PCB/circuitry. The airflow over the motherboard actually helps reduce those temperatures as well, even when the Spitfire exhaust temperature is ~50C. It just likes airflow

Feel free to ask any questions if you like.

Looks good
The Spitfire is a good match with the Corsair H50 as it usually won't clear a conventional air cooling tower-type heatsink.
I am a bit confused about the side panel, does it not fit as you have it set up in the photo? Looks like it would fit, unless the fan on the Spitfire makes it too wide?
I also wonder if the fan on top of the psu is really needed, as there is some airflow from the bottom case fan, but I guess every bit helps.
Very good temperatures, there would be an even greater improvement over the stock Nvidia GTX 470 heatsink of course, probably 30C or more running Furmark.
And it's a lot quieter

It physically won't close without pressing upagainst the spitfire. Mainly because of the retention brackets holding the fan. W/o a fan it fits fine. While the fan may not be needed, it keeps the PCB/VRM/memory temperatures in check. I can't monitor memory/VRM temps, so I'd rather be safe than sorry And yeah, this thing is a great fit with the h50. no clearance issues and it provides airflow over the mobo circuitry.

If you can fit the Spitfire in your case (w/a fan) while still accommodating a side-panel fan, then it wouldn't be necessary to have additional airflow beneath the card.
