so i have a new project i want to try with my ares iii 295x2 I want to try the card under extreme cooling but there are some challenges.

first is how do i mount any cooling devices to this thing, i was thinking 2 gpu pots but with mounting the second pot thats close to the power connector faces some clearance issues.

A option i have is to remove them and solder elsewhere but i want to be to keep it as stock as possible in case i wanted to return it to domestic duties lol.

So heres the options i can lay the card flat and mount cpu pots on top the gpus or wait to see if i can get some copper spacers to sit between the gpu and the pot.

second issue is what type of insulation method do i go with liquid rubber or vaseline :cry:




















im going to try the cpu pot method first and see how it goes o_O

Ya know you could use Silicone in a tube or a spray. It's like 3$ for a 2.8 oz tube at walmart. Silicone 2+. Maybe rubber is easer to remove. idk how well the spray works gl!
