yeh and it seems that cardz below this have the same headroom with good active/air cool setup as they do w/H20... and this may be one of the first VERY practical uses of water cooling to give this card and it's ilk a jump in perf. un-attainable by any air cool setup...

Great images BladeRunner! Now what is the plan in getting better cooling here? I've been dying to see someone do this card right in the cooling department. Please keep us inform or show us some of your makings, forget about benchmarks, I am more interested in coolness as in tempertures and even noise levels. Just my drift.

This is what Nvidia should have done in the first place, get some cards out into the community for modifying/testing and suggestions. Once people feel like they have a little say so then they also feel more like the card is also theirs, making them want to buy one even more. Now that would be better PR from Nvidia which so far I would (not that it really matters) give them a big fat F+.

FX flow is very easy to remove from the card, even easier than the stiff pinned sink on a Radeon 9700.

The the top part of the clear cover has 4 screws retaining it. The bottom clear part which has the fan mounted in it is fixed to the copper heatpipe unit with two screws. the ram sink on the backside is made with 4 pins that go through holes in the card and then holes in the copper frontside cooler. It's then retained by two spring steel pieces that just push down and slide out. all that is left now is the main copper heatpipe unit and two screws through the card with a spring steel retainer pressing on the back area of the GPU is all that holds it on. The worst part was removing the remains of the Chewing Gum thermal pad from the GPU.

The water-cooler is made and fitted to the card, (but I need confirmation before I can post images, as this is a joint project with other parties)

I'm just about to install it in my water cooled system and if it works the FX will be silently cooled better than any heatsink fan, (especially in my system with a current coolant temp of 9.3C).

I was not 100% sure the cooler would fit. I actually made it to images of the bare FX shown on the net before Xmas, as I didn't have a real card. It required a fair amount of educated guessing on my part, along with using an FX image I printed out at actual real life card size. On getting the card it just required two areas on the ram blocks to be milled slightly and some retaining holes drilled and it appears to fit just fine. I also decided to make this cooler a one slot solution if I could, so this might be the only silent and cool, one slot FX 5800 Ultra in existance.

off now to swap it out with the R9700..........
