HD5570 and Accelero S1 Rev.2

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

Ever since I got my htpc setup, I rarely use my main desktop anymore: web browsing is so much better in a comfy chair, and even casual gaming was within the stumped excuse of a processor's reach (the on these kinda forum's much discused and much despised Atom).
To give my setup a bit more gaming grunt, I decided to replace the HD5450 I used by a HD5570.
Since I wanted to keep the silence of my htpc, I first started checking out the passive versions of the card on the net, but was dismayed to see they all used ddr2 instead of ddr3 or 5. So I turned my eye to the (cheaper) versions with active cooling. The Sapphire version with 1GB of ddr3 was the one I decided to buy.
I also searched for aftermarket cooling for the card, but found very little. I did find very detailed info on sizes etc. of one of the most popular, the Accelero S1R2 and cross referenced those with the sizes of the HD5570 I could work in my case.
And so it did biggrin.gif
Attached are some pictures of this little project.
I have one question, though: I used AS5 between the heatsink and GPU, and it looked like I had a good coverage, but when I tested it in my system and used ATI Tool to stress it, the temperatures shot up dramatically (at times just over 100 C ). When I stopped, the temps dropped back quickly till they hit the low 50's and a few minutes later: low 40's, but honestly: I was shocked to see how quickly the temps rose and to which degree!
So I wonder: Could it be the AS5? Does it need time to 'cure'? Or maybe the spread isn't sufficient?
One other option is one of the heatsinks on the RAM chips... I've bent the one closest to the heatpipes coming from the heatsink, but maybe the other one on the other side of the board is touching the aluminium footing on which the heatsink is attached... I'll have to check that out, too.

Ah well, enjoy the pictures of a small card and a gigantic cooler!

It may be the quality of the heatsink itself. I bought my S1 rev2 used from eBay hoping it would cool my 5870 in my FT02 case, but unfortunately it performed even worse than stock (I even used fans with the S1). Temps would keep rising non-stop until the GPU had to underclock itself to stay around 90*C, I first used Chill Factor 3 paste, then AS5, and both yielding poor results. It may be rare, but I think the quality can be suspect (even the construction itself feels kinda cheap IMO)

I have a 5570 in one of my PCs, great low power GPU. I've also owned five Accelero 1 S2 coolers and haven't had a dud yet and I use them on much hotter GPUs, 5770's, 4850's and a 9800GT.

What you have to watch for on newer Radeon cards is the lower profile GPU dies. My 5770's all required shorter height spacers in order to get the cooler to contact the die. See the pic below from one of my 5770's using the stock spacers without any TIM obscuring the view. I suggest trying the cooler without TIM and just looking to see if there is a gap like the picture below. If there is the fix is simple, I just cut a few pieces of PVC water pipe and used that as a spacer. You can see the whole process here in the 5770 cooling thread.

Hope that helps.

I noticed the space as well. I actually took a gamble and installed the S1 without the plastic washers, to ensure the heatsink & gpu die made solid contact. I'm convinced the problem isn't with contact because of how temperatures behaved during Furmark stability test:

Idle: 28*C
1 min into Furmark: 50*C
2 min into Furmark: 60*C
3 min into Furmark: 70*C
4 min into Furmark: 80*C
5 min into Furmark: 90*C
6 min into Furmark: 95*C and the 5870 begins to underclock core speed
Ending Furmark, and within 1 minute, temps come back down to around 30*C
This was done with a 140mm fan tied onto the S1.

My card would've fried if it was an issue with contact. I'm convinced that heat was just getting trapped in the heatpipes and not distributing heat to the fins optimally. When I removed the 140mm fan I tied onto the S1, the heatsink was hot to the touch.

Thank you for both your quick replies.
Whilst there is always the chance I've got a dud, that will only be my last option. I bought it of an official retailer, and tbh, it's build quality 'feels' even more solid than the one sapphire puts stock on their 5450 (yes, I took than one of to get a closer look at the mounting holes. It's PCB is almost a twin to the 5570.)
Indeed, there is a 1 to 2 mm clearance between the heatsink and chip. When I had first attached the AS1R2 to my card and installed it, even running on idle in the desktop showed artifacts, so I took it out and checked how it looked. There was the 2ish mm space covered by a tiny blob os AS5.
So I reaplied a bit more and from the side view it looks like the whole gap between GPU and heatsink nw is bridged (though I'm loathe to use too much; whilst 99% un-conductive, that's still not 100%. I should have gotten a ceramique one for full un-condutcivity which I could even apply more freely).
And thanks for your tip about the custom spacers. Though I now will have to cu tthe mounting feet down to size to make that work: the stock spacers with the AS1R2 are key components to make it fit on this card, in my board, i my case.
The matter of the fact is: it's a half height card, so the mounting holes are closer to the side. for the 4,3sh mm holes that's no problem, but the 5,6ish mm holes cross the thin white line on the mobo side of the card. The spacers, however, provide just enough height to lift it over the pcie slot's edges.
Those bits of surplus alluminium are still on, because I didn't have the tools to cut them of. I'll head into town today and see if someone can help me with this, because I think that bit of space the spacers give me is both my salvation and my curse. (Sorry guys: I get prozaic / poetic at times tongue.gif )

I'll keep you updated!
Cheers!

Photograph, if you're a woman, I'd want to marry you! If you're a guy, I'm open to the idea, right now, though would a handshake and a heartfelt 'thank you" suffice?
I did a few mods, though I couldn't find someone able to help me cut the mounting thing-a-majig to size, I ended up doing that myself with a small steel saw to weaken and pliers to cut through the final bit.
I also ended up using no spacers, but that doesn't seem to big a deal.
It works and it's way cool! 30 degrees C atm, iddle. I used ATI Tool again to strees it a bit, and while the scanning for artifacts doesn't fully stress the GPU, before I made the mods, it ran it close to 100C. Now 45C.
Me so happy! drunken.gif
Come to think of it, you saved me some € 36, Photograph, because if I couldn't figure this out I'd buy a GFXChilla (Coolink), that one is actually the only one I know of that says it supports a HD5570. Though it's not entirely passive: has 2 80mm fans on it's small AS1 like heatsink (And the AS1R2 was half the price biggrin.gif ).
So wadda ya say, a big wet kiss and we'll call it a day?
ROFL! I'm so stoked! One of the first ever mods I did, and after a faulty start, it's a smashing succes! Thanks again for pointing me in the right direction, man!
Cheers!

PS - My 18+ rated mind can't help this thought: There's a hell of a lot more some hookers would do for € 36 here in the NL than just a big wet kiss......

The S1 is great for lower power cards, but even with good air flow cannot keep up with higher end ones.

GTS 250, 5770, and maybe 6850 are the most powerful cards I'd put one on.

Regardless, to be used passively, on anything, you need good very case air flow. Raephen, your setup doesn't look like it could possibly be providing this. The air coming in the front of your case is almost completely bypassing the card. The card would need to be smack in the center of any flow to stay cool.

Hi Blameless,

Thanks for sharing your thoughts, and I agree with you, an AS1Rev.2 on one of the more high-end cards needs aditional cooling, yes, and I too worried about airflow.
My Lian Li PC-Q08 is a tight case -- for reference: The MoBo is an ITX; the fan on the left a Scythe 140mm fan, 700ish rpm, exhaust; top fan a 120mm CM running 300ish, exhaust; the green one on the right a Nanoxia 140mm intake running some 700rpm.
The - not originally supported, but with a few mods and on the edge of my MoBo - graphics card is a HD5570. Hardly a high end card and with a respectable TDP of 49W, it's good enough for casual gaming with. Far more so than the HD5450 it replaced.
To really test the Accelero cooler in the airflow as it is, I used CCC to overclock it to it's max (core: 690, mem 940 Mhz) an ran the OCCT GPU test for an hour. I ran GPU-Z in the bckground to record a few max figures and then watched some tv for a bit.
During an hours worth of stressing at 99%, the highest temp recorded was 54C, and as you can see in the enclosed graph OCCT made at the end of the hour, that was only for a very short time.
I'm glad to say: my flow seems sufficient.
Oh, nevertheless I'm getting a new case for my HTPC, but the airflow is now the least of the reasons why. LOL! the main reason is actually the small 3.5" fancontroler you see lodged inside my case. I want to mount it properly, so I'm getting a relatively cheap Silverstone SUGO SG02-F.

Cheers!

PS -- in the OCCT graph a few key words are in dutch, but they can be guessed easily. Left vertical (red line in the graph) is the temperature (temperatuur,... who would have thought, :lmao )
