I know what ya think. The CPU cooler hasn't changed in performance at all. So don't worry. The tops temp of the CPU anyway is like 45C.... So no worries.

Very sick! - Love the top of the cooler now, wish it came stock that way hehe, if i had to go one step further, definitely carbon fiber wrap that gpu shroud!

Good luck,
George

I doubt it'll be safe. But I want to make a backplate out of epoxy and carbon fiber the top of my gfx card. Basically what I'd do is double layer some seran wrap the top of the card, then get the Popsicle sticks and glue a mold around it. Then fill the area with epoxy, about 1/8" thick. Once it hardens, take off the seran wrap and sticks, clean it up, and carbon fiber that, boom, one solid block on the top of my gfx card thats all carbon fiber... But then again, I don't know what kind of issues I'll run into then with heat... But its an idea. I like how it looks now.
The CPU cooler was the best part. Greatest improvement!

I thought it looked good but now i'm not so sure... It ups my temps 1C in OCCT. Testing it gaming now... but yea...I dunno. Tell me what ya think...

You can scroll up to see the before pic and this after pic of the gfx card.


Edit: I actually decided to take off the vinyl that has part of the card covered up...as you can see in the pic. It adds 2C warmer to the gfx card so I decided to cut the stuff. But its still on the card and looks great! I edited the image already

you would be better off just getting some acrylic cutting it to size and then wraping it in Di_noc. or you can also get real carbon plate and cut to fit.
