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 goeso_O

As you already have a block for it, try chilled, pure anti-freeze to attain a negative temp.

the level of oc and voltages i plan on using will be hindered by the temp swing from the block plus i plan on going below -50c so antifreeze wont be a viable option. i had a homemade water chiller before with a couple of 4870x2 it was fun but a p.i.t.a

only thing i can think of is not using gpu pots but like ya said with the card laid flat use 2x small cpu pots.

and i just use something like this on gpu or motherboard:
and afterwards just another spray cleaner

or maybe ask on hwbot.org

i often did just let the pot sit by itself without retention on cpu´s and gpu´s and never had a prob.
only thing to watch is if much ice builds that the pot gets lifted a little.

i would try whithout volt mod first and just go for the cold. how much volts can ya push with msi ab ? 1,30volt?

yeah it seems to be leaning that way to start with
and cold without volts is like peanut butter and no jelly :laugh:
