Aftermarket cooling / Mod for the Asus Turbo

I just purchased the Asus GTX 1080 Turbo secondhand for a really good Price.
I did watch some youtube videos before buying the Card and decided I could put
up with the cooler considering the Price.
However after having the Card operate under full load yesterday, something needs
to be done to cut down the noise.

What options are there?
Most of the videos mention that the turbo Card isn't 100 % identical to the ref. Cards.

The DIY / AIO cooler solution is no good for me. I would have a hard time finding a spot to fit the radiator, not
to mention it would be costly since I have to buy both the bracket and the AIO Cooler.

I also thought about modding the original turbo cooler by removing the fan and the plastic shround but keeping the baseplate and heatsink. I would then add a bracket to the pci slot below the Card with 2 fans blowing onto the now exposed baseplate and heatsink, but I don't know if it would Work.

Any input / experiences would be appreciated.

start simple
pull the cooler and replace the TIM
add a cold air feed to the gpu with some decent case fans and go from there
And yer, as i recall i had a couple of these... and they were horrible sounding, perfect for custom looping up

My old R9 290 Twin Frozr IV had a fan fail, I took off the shroud/fans and used those round 120mm fan grilles to allow me to mount 2 x 120mm high static pressure fans, dropped temps quite well

This page (from post 13) shows me modding my GPU https://www.overclock.net/forum/18083...-system-2.html

I didn't have time to play too much with the Card yesterday, but I did set up an side intake
fan which feeds the gpu fan directly.
The noise is ok now, but the Cards still reached 82 degrees C during benchmarks and starts to throttle.

#4
I will look up the serial no when I get back home today, but I really don't want to watercool.

I found this video on youtube (for a GTX 1060 Turbo) where he reuses the baseplate for vrm adn ram cooling and then adds the Dracula cooler for the gpu itself.
Unfortunately I cannot find this cooler where I live.

Hi,
Yeah I wouldn't bother with a nickle water block either they are crap.
But the hybrids usually have copper plates not nickle plated so it might work.

Could be defective/ bad thermal paste and pads...
I do know the reference design "Single fan" is a total waste of money unless you put water on it some how sort of why I asked for the serial number to find it exact model number will work too link to it.

Hi there

I would suggest get Raijintek Morpheus II cooler which is probably best air cooler for GPU

Add there two silent 120mm fans and you will be loving yours GPU and temperatures depending on ambient I would suspect you will be in low 40's or mid to high 50's with good OC as well

Hope this helps

Thanks, Jura

I have a morpheus 2 on my OC 1070 turbo. I just have some noctua nf-s12a fans and temps during 100% load on fur mark didn't go above 60c at 1200 rpms, its a very quiet fan.. Granted those fans are not meant for heatsinks. So, get some fans with higher pressure, like the F12s and the temps will be even lower at the same rpms.
