AIO Water Cooled Video Cards

http://s864.photobucket.com/albums/a...60%20On%20GPU/

What you need,

H60 (or similar AIO water kit) ~$50
bag of heat sinks ~$10
Time spent ~30minutes
80-92mm fan (if you dont have one laying around, add that to the cost)

$60 is the cost of single universal GPU water block, then figure in the pump, tubing, res, rad, etc... This is about 1/3 the cost of a "real" water cooled GPU.

All you need to do is daisy chain zip ties together around the block/pump below the top of the groove, then cross some over the top tucked in the ones around the block/pump. Then run them through the four corner holes in the PCB, and run another set of zip ties from the bottom. Pull tight (but slowly) with a pair of pliers or something untill the block is tight enough to not turn without a notable increase of pressure. Cut all the tails, then move on to the VRMs and memory.

Apply the heatsinks to the VRMs and memory ICs. Be sure to use a strong enough thermaltape, and if needed, put a tiny tiny drop of super glue on the corners. Once thats done, zip tie a 80mm or 92mm fan over the tail end where the VRMs are. Two zip ties should be enough, and wont interfear with the PCIe power connectors.


Results coming soon. With the stock cooler on my EVGA GTX-570HD and stock clocks, I got 75C load with kombuster and fan locked at 70%. Thats pretty warm, and loud. With the stock cooler on max speed, I could only OC to about 825Mhz core.

Nice setup.

Thought Id mention - kids, be very careful with super glue, as it is conductive, and it is VERY easy to zap a mosfet with it. Ask my previous 6950 2GB how I know that

From what Ive seen, should get ~40C load temps, so its worth it

Additional Comment:

Looks like Im going to have to get some super glue before trying this out. The stock thermalright tape isnt sticking, and my old bottle dried up. Will be a couple days before this is running I guess.

Now you can do some 3D benching. Good idea Cecil.

I wonder if plain ol' double sided tape would work at all. I got a roll of it that I used to plastic all the windows.

No, not really. Thermal tape is what is usually used, but it never really sticks well enough, or some kinds stick too much and rip the component from the PCB if you try to remove it.

There is some kind of thin black double sided adhesive tape that came with some heat sinks I got years back that works great. I use it for the fets on the back of the GeneII.
Don't know where to find it though came with a generic vga hs I got for a 6600gt few years back. 3M likely makes it.

Dropped temps to 50C load with a very quiet 800rpm fan on the rad (just one in push).

Got 870Mhz on stock volts, and 890Mhz so far with a bump to 1.075V. Temps still havent gone past 50C.
