[Project] Breaking the Bank - Page 6

post #51 of 53
Thread Starter 
Since the last upgrade I have swapped the stock Corsair 140mm fans for some BGears 140mm fans and also added in a purrty Scythe Digital Fan controller with temp probes. Also ordered up two Corsair Force Series 3 Sata III 240 GB ssds today. Paid a whopping $350 for the two!

Future upgrades include the Asus P8Z77 WS motherboard and an Ivy Bridge CPU. Then I will be using the old Asus P8P67 mobo and 2600k in my NAS that I am setting up. Overkill I know but I am using parts I have readily available.

Just pointing out something: The waterblock you use is meant for REFERENCE cards and you're Twin Frozr is NOT reference. Most likely, some memory chips or VRMs are not at the same place and are therefore getting no or improper cooling and will overheat.

Show me where my Twin Frozr II O/C are not reference cards please, everywhere I have looked said they are. Both MSI and the waterblock company confirmed this waterblock was designed to work on these cards and are reference cards. All the components that the stock air cooler had thermal tape on them are covered by this waterblock. They even provided the thermal tape for it and the lengths were cut exactly the same as the ones from the stock cooler. So there were no fitments issues and everything that was covered by the stock cooler are covered by this water block.

I have pushed the card to 1.2v at 1ghz CC and the temps never broke 65*C with multiple temp probes hooked up to it.
