Can I underclock? =D - Page 2

post #11 of 24
Buy a 3rd party cooler and be even happier? Silent fans, cooler temps, same if not more power.

I don't know much about that, what exactly is a third party cooler?

I thought that just caps the FPS? Does that actually reduce strain on the GPU and thus power, noise, temps, etc.?

A third party cooler is something like this. You remove the stock heatsink and attach this and get significantly lower temps as well as much more bearable noise levels even under load.

Also yes, Vsync will cap your FPS and limit your GPU strain. Look at it like this, without vysnc lets say you get 200 FPS. It's going to take a signficantly higher amount of GPU power to render 200 FPS over 60 with an undetectable change in quality other then a lack of screen tearing.

1) Ah thank you, I'll definitely do that!

2) Ah excellent! I'll just turn vsync on then and that's solved.

No problem.

Also if you're interested in that particular cooler you'll have to purchase the mounting brackets seperate for like 6$.

http://www.arctic.ac/en/p/detail?sArticle=18.%3F VR004 for the 580 I believe.

A torx t6 screwdriver will be needed as well to remove the stock heatsink. I pick a full set of torx bits up at home depot for like 5$.

Also heres a review showing some testing with this cooler vs stock

Sweet man, thanks for the info!

Definitely better temps with that cooler!

nice post and solution to his problem, but damn that cooler is $75?!?! how well would it help in temps? and wouldnt it be better just to pick up a card with one already installed? aside from the fact that doing the TIM yourself is better anyways?

the AXP cooler is a great cooler, it make my 480 run cooler then a 580 lol

in say thing that... the temps from a 580 with the same cooler as a 480 will be about the same...

due to the fact they both use about the same amount of power...

so look forward to temps about 25-30 Deg C over ambient under load...

I used that on my long-gone 480; temps ended up being 5-10C cooler, with slower fan speed, all depending on the game. BC2 showed ~6C cooler with ~%10 less fan speed (custom profile). It works wonders.

Glad to see my recommendation helped
