As for what he was asking about them removing the copper plate, no they don't. What they do is remove the metal plate off the die of the GPU's, after removing the heatsink. YES, it can be done, but one small slip with the razor blade, and you have a $250+ paperweight. It's risky business.

I didn't really understand why you were irritated, because looking back over the past couple pages, I don't see where anyone was like "CAN IT BE TAKEN APART?? HOW?" Well, there was that one guy, but I thought he meant you could run the system without the copper plate -- a completely different topic that your link doesn't even cover. I'm pretty sure the copper plate has to be there lol (correct me if I'm wrong).

And when you posted the second time, it was like something I said set you off.. I just don't see it. I think there was a little confusion on my part over what the other guy said about removing the copper plate. I always assumed it could be disassembled without much trouble because of the visible screws, so I was never actually asking "can it be disassembled", I was asking "can it be ran without the copper plate" because I misunderstood what that one guy said. (Sorry to be referring to you as "that one guy", but I can't remember your user name lol"

Anyways, I'm getting off-topic. I just think there was a little miscommunication.

Thats the biggest reason why I applogised, I realized I was blowing up when really there was no need. I let things going on around be reflect in my posts.

 

But I know "That guy" was talking about. He was asking if you removed the copper plate to lap it, so as not to shave the plastic or the screws. He did not mean run it without the copper plate, as that would just leave you with no way to seal the system.

 

But what the guys modding them to their GPU's is doing is: you know how your Processor has that metal plate on top of the die's of the processors? Well, alot of GPU's are doing that now too, especially the GTX270's up. What they do is remove that IHS, (Integrated Heat shield), so that the Kuhler is directly cooling the GPU core itself, not a Shield that is transfering the heat from the core. This is very risky business because they are basically glued onto the board, and one small slip will either dig into the board, or into one of the pins of the core. For a 5C difference, it's not worth possibly bricking your $250+ GPU, unless you have a money tree growing in your back yard.

Appropriate image. But yes, I know what they are doing, because I did it myself. I removed the IHS and am running the 620 directly on the die. The biggest reason I did it was actually not for temperature difference, but for space. It gave me a couple precious millimeters in between my already cramped graphics cards, and that was worth it in my eyes. Now, they're not pushing against each other and slightly flexing.

I think that once you have the 620 securely strapped to the die, the risk factor drops considerably, since it doesn't move hardly at all. The risk is largest when you're tapping a razor blade with screwdriver with a hammer to pop the IHS off of the board. But I was able to do it fairly easily; I took my time and tried to be very careful.

I am sending my one for RMA tomorrow, Hopefully all this will be done and they will send me a good working noiseless replacement Unit before the end of the week.smile.gif

Can I join the club?
This is my 1st rig but I waited a while to upgrade the stock AMD cooler to this

The stock cooler came off very easily
Scrapped a bit of the mobo backside while taking out the stock rear bracket but everything's working fine so far (knock on wood)
In retrospect, I could have easily left the stock rear bracket on as the screws were the same size

Thanks for all the tips, very satisfied so far

Nice lights, and great job. I used to have a blue led fan in the front of my computer (for intake), but I took it out. After the novelty wore off, I got kind of tired of the blue light cast all over my walls when I was trying to sleep at night.

Update biggrin.gif

Sent mine for RMA yesterday, they got it today and tested it to be faulty. Should have a replacement sent tomorrow and have it the same day or the next day wink.gif

See easy as eating a piece of pie bud. Why fix something myself and void the warranty, something so important as the pump when I can just send it and get a proper working one tongue.gif

Hope everything works out fine this time smile.gif
