I just put this diagram together to clarify how you can significantly cool your GPU for cheap.

This applies to people on AIR and H2O! A full cover water block's back plate acts as a passive heat sync and WILL get very hot to the touch and why this solution applies to everyone.



If you are wondering "Will this ghetto fix actually make a difference in temps", the answer is YES it will help a tremendous amount especially if you have SLI.

Get creative! Don't worry about looks worry about heat thumb.gif

Nice. I didn't mean to imply anyone did something the "wrong way." Makes a lot more sense now that I don't have in inaccurate idea of what you meant biggrin.gif

Also, velcro is the best. I have a fan mounted to my router with velcro. I also have all of my TV remotes on the wall with it. Haven't needed it in my PC yet, but I'll keep it in mind.

Nope, I don't think taken that way appreciate you mentioning it smile.gif


In case anyone might be looking at fans there are a few tips I can pass on:


(1) If you get a PWM fan (and you have a fan controller or motherboard 4-pin header) you can fine tune the RPMs (potentially reduce fan noise). SOME FANS are listed as 3/4-pin but only have 2/3 physical wires (watch out for this).

(2) Ball bearing fans last the longest perform the best and don't make noise and slow down over time like cheap fans do.

(3) Low profile fans are available if space is an issue


Some fans that you might want to look at:

Evercool EC8015M12CA (My favorite so far it is low profile, ball bearing, PWM, good quality and cheap)
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Evercool-80mm-15mm-DC-12V-Ball-Bearing-Brushless-Low-Noise-Fan-EC8015M12CA-/111124578405?hash=item19df8a8065:g:c94AAMXQqdhR7C1v

Arctic Cooling F8 PWM (Good quality fan at a nice price)
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Arctic-Cooling-F8-PWM-CO-80-mm-Case-Fan-with-Standard-Case-AFACO-080PC-GBA01-/400310613066?hash=item5d345f344a:g:NSYAAOxyoVZTH8uz

San Ace

hash=item3aa481234d:g:HM0AAOSwNSxU955h


EDIT: Since I was also looking for "Blue" to match my case theme I ended up finding these. I might get these actually because it can show the temp of each GPU backplate tongue.gif
http://www.coolerguys.com/840556090441.html

I bought these too... hope they are the right size tongue.gif

I can vouch for those Evercool fans as well. I use EC7015M12CA fans in the industrial PCs I build at work for CNC controls. They've survived some pretty harsh environments, with plenty of dust / grease. I've had one fail so far, and only because a customer flipped the fan upside down, so the uncovered part scraped against the heat sink it was on.

Thanks, I think somebody recently gave me the ghetto cooling bug so hopefully i'll throw some fans on using the zip tie method, I like it smile.gif

This could just be variance but I just installed 361.91 drivers and I seemed to have gained some performance in FFXIV. I noticed this while testing adaptive power management mode. Does anyone else notice an improvement with these drivers?

The thing I noticed in 361.91 is that driver is more conservative with clocks than previous. It does downclock whenever it can(like in loading screens in BF4) and the like instances. And that results in a tad lower temps.
Also, this driver tends to crash with high oc rather than artifacting(gta v).

would it be advisable to use larger fans? i only ask because i have a spare 120mm and 140mm lying around. wondering if i could either of them in place of buying an 80mm

Laithan , do you have samsung memory 2000mhz seems pretty good! Yeap new drivers are better than the previous that had the thunderbolt bug... who wants to eject his 980ti? XD But i never use adaptive always prefer maximus performance! Is it safe to use 1281mV on max boost and 1018mV on idle? (max temps 68) . I will do that benchmark too and i will post my results

I downloaded and applied the "H2O_RC1F4_980TiG1" BIOS for the GTX 980 Ti G1 Gaming card.


In your screenshot I'm seeing Dynamic Boost 1599Mhz on the GPU Clock, and after applying your BIOS, I'm not getting anywhere near this.

Using OC Guru, I can reach 1552 on the core and 8GHz on the video memory using + 0.0750 volts.

How do I get this card to 1600 Mhz on water cooling?
