75% - 105c
80% - 105c
85% - 105c
90% - 102c
95% - 99c
100% - 99c

Once it gets hot, it stays hot

Well, I'm flip flopping again on these . I would only be using a single card for either 16x10 or 19x12(or 10) gaming and want all the longevity I can squeeze out of my purchase.

Either way though, you SLI users have a much bigger challenge ahead of you, unless someone can pull off that 2 slot cooler (or you go with water cooling.

I can also live with the power draw off a single card no problem...

I do like the look of those Palits Vardant posted. I just don't have time to search for any testing that's been done with them atm.

Or I could always use an apartment size refrigerator for a case mod......

It is possible to put 2 holes in the Door of the fridge, fit rubber grommets into the holes and run your water cooling into it. Your cooler of course would be placed inside the fridge. A guy I know did it with a Small freezer, and used anti-freeze as the coolant. Crazy concept, but if done right, it works well.

Almost 3 years ago I did a very basic mod to one of my 8800GTS's to keep the cards from sucking in warm air, which knocked 10*C off the temps. Something similar for the 4x0 cards would really help I think.

http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=99833

In this example a had the intake to the side as I had fans in the side cover, but something similar sucking in from the front, with an additional fan blowing at the intakes, should make a nice difference. I'd be interested to see the results if anyone has a go .

CoolIT announces support for GTX 480/470

Not much there other than a pic and the announcement, but the concept they're using looks interesting.

I can see several companies making similar setups, and making a decent profit because of the simplicity and it's ability to actually lower temps.

Kind of annoying that my mobo forces my two SLI cards to hump each other, so this mod wouldn't work for me.

Default Re: Man, it is sooo hot.

Cooling video cards has been a problem longer then the cpu. When I first went from an ATI all in wonder to a 3dfx card, It only had a heat sink at a time when cpus all had fans. The thing died within a few minutes of an online game and I always put extra cooling on my cases. When the replacement came, I stuck a cpu hs fan on it.

Next card was also 3dfx and by then they figured out they needed fans. I thought, good, don't need to mod it... wrong, again died ina few minutes. So when the replacement came, I stuck a bigger fan on it.

Next card was an early nvidia card, basicly geforce1. Right from the start I replaced the stock fan and added in 2 80mm fans blowing down on the card..

ti4600.. for that computer, cpus where getting hot again and water cooling was getting popular, so I went water all the way. CPU, GPU, and chipset. I didn't like always worrying about water levels, buildup in the pipes, is it leaking, etc..

So for my current system I was happy to go heat pipes. 4u rack case with 120mm front fan and 2 80mm rear, PhenomII x4 945 (95w). Motherboard (MSI NF980-G65) has heat pipes also. with 120mm fan on the cpu, it just reaches the 40c mark for speeding up the fan with all 4 cores in stress test. Thats a good design. CPU makers, at least AMD, have learned to keep power and heat down. I did have to pull the heat pipe from the motherboard and replace the crappy pads with OCZ Freeze. The chipset which has integrated video was pushing 105c under load. Now it stays around 77c. Tossed in a 20mm fan to make sure it stayed that way. All fans run at low speed and low noise.

One of these new 480's would pull more power at idle then the rest of the computer under full load. They really need to get their act together and start focusing more on power/heat loads. We shouldn't need a seperate circuit just to power the video or specialized aftermarket cooling.

Was wondering if anyone thinks the Bigwater 760is would be enough to cool one 780GTX. Evga is going to be selling ones with a water block already attached. Or you think the bigwater fan will make just as much noise as the stock fan on the card?

Going with two Evga 480s and a added 120mm fan on the side of my case
