    Default "watercooled" HD 6970

    Some of you may want to kill me. It works though! So far after running a D3D11 stress test on Kombustor for an hour at 1000MHz core, the temperature sat at 65C. (this is good whereas before would have crashed)

    Wow dude lol I don't know what to say. That is special. I'm glad you Gpu CORE" is getting lower temps but the rest of the card is in danger of failure.

    Spend a few dollars and get some passive heatsinks for the vrm and memory chips. Aavid Thermalloy Mini Heatsink - 19mm x 19mm x 12mm - Anodized Black - FrozenCPU.com

    You appear to have everything else for real water cooling except a real res. That shouldnt cost you too much to get setup right. Even with fans blowing on those vrms and memory chips on the gpu it still isnt a good way to remove heat. If you keep running it that way you are going to have some serious problems.

    I admire the your ingenuity with the Tupper ware res and fans to cool what it can. You would have been better served by mounting your AIO on your GPU.

    Thanks! I was crazy hesitant because the tubing attached to the GPU block is zip tied. So I ended up putting a fortress of paper towels all around the card and in the end - no leaks! That one random blue 120mm fan is blowing over the card to cool RAM and VRMs. I think I may end up getting a test bench since as you can see I don't make much use of a case. I think maybe a cheaper Swiftech kit as well as I do not trust this setup for the long haul. I am crazy impressed with how much this thing is able to cool, but 65C is still higher than I want.

    Thank you! I still have the full body heatsink on the card as well as a 120mm fan moving the air. Shouldn't this suffice? The tupperware is just incase I get a leak. I have the Larkooler pump/res combo. I think I may ditch the setup I have now and mount the CoolIT ECO on there.

    As for the balls.. I do not have the money to replace my system if anything should happen. But at the same time I really love computers and am willing to take a risk to learn!

    The last person I saw run a gpu with that black plate as a heat sink ended up with artifacts and crashes after a month or so. He was doing pretty much the same thing you are. Just having a fan blow accrossed it. For it to be as effective as the fans that were on the original heatsink you would have to mount it on the gpu block blowing directly down onto black plate. Its safer to get the small passive heatsinks and have a fan pointed towards them. Will pull heat away a lot better.


    Still cool to see what you did. Takes balls to experiment with your gear like that.

    It isn't a backplate. It's the one covering the front of the card.. unless that is what you mean? I have memory sinks that I will put on tomorrow along with the AIO. I guess I have a long day ahead of me. It took me an hour to come up with a way to mount the damn block that's on the GPU now.

    Will you be using the AIO on the GPU?

    LOL...how will you be mounting that? Do you have a custom bracket?
