um not really it's close, and it has alot less pain in the ass factor.
Full card blocks with trifan rad means you can still have a single slot solution and cool better than air.
not all water cooling is better than these thermalrights
since it's not totally off topic, please find enclosed more photos of these heatsinks in a dual configuration :
A radial 12 cm fan blowing across the heatpipes add some serious security margin for any further overclock...
hope this help
Dont they have anything for the back Ram chips with this? Or are you just supposed to leave the stock metal plate in place.
U know you can route that 8 pin/4pin 12v ATX wire under the GPUs instead of over everything....?
Umm I dont think he is stupud, why bother its only æsthetic anyway, looks like he has better things on his mind..
yup, but the cable you're talking about is definately too short to do that, this is the only way to reach the 4pins molex hidden behind the noctua HS, i wish there was a workaround though.
There are extension wires for the 4pin/8pin 12v thingy, would make it even more sexy looking
Full card blocks actually perform worse than universal blocks. They dump the heat from the mem and vregs into the loop, lowering your gpu clock. Sure, you might be able to squeeze some extra out of the mem, but the gpu speed is infinitely more important that the mem speed.
As for a point of reference in the water vs air debate, my card loop consists of a Maze5 GPU block, MCP-350 Pump, MicroRes, and a Swiftech MCR-120 120mm rad with a Silverstone FM-121 fan, all with 3/8" fittings. In a room temp of 21C, I reach a temp of 42C running Furmark, with a vGPU of 1.7V. At stock volts, it peaks at 33C.
thats why you want a separate memblock and a separate GPU Block.
cool , looking well
you put your staff in dell system case right , i know it cuz i see the mobo is upside down , i have two dell case too im thinking about mod it , nothing better than dell cases but only problem is main case door the right side that is mean when you put other mobo everything be inverse
Nope, that's a CM Stacker 830 or 832. You can reverse mount the mobo tray in those. I ran mine that way for quite a while.
Wile E is right, it's written down on my specs
who cares anyways it looks great.
On my card ive had more benefiet from clocking my memory high. Its probably the opposite to you because you have alot more mem than me. So really it all depends on the card. My old 7950GT got more of a boost from clocking the core than ram cause it had 512mb.
No, even with your card, I guaranty that a 50Mhz core OC will score higher than a 50Mhz mem clock. Once you pass a certain point on the mem on that card, it is no longer a bottleneck. That point can generally be achieved without h2o cooling. And even if it is a bottleneck, raising the core will still provide increases.
Its still better to keep everything nice and cool if your going that route. And, there is no difference between 700 and 750mhz core right now. When i cranked the ram from 950 to 1050 though there was a big improvement.
What did you use to verify that? No testing on any video card I have ever done, or that my teamate with the GSO's has done, shows any trend like that at all. The core always does more. My guess would be that you need a little more gpu vcore to run 750Mhz properly. That can make a huge difference, trust me. I can run 900Mhz in 3Dmark 06 at 1.55V, but I score much lower than when I run the same speed at 1.7V.
And my point about full coverage block is that you sacrifice gpu cooling for better ram cooling, when just making sure you have good airflow and ram sinks would do just as well in the ram clocking department as far as scores are concerned. Because all you need to do is ease the bottleneck. It doesn't take much to accomplish that.
Just playing games and watching the FPS. In high graphic games there wasnt as much of a dip when clocking my ram up but almost little or no difference when going from 700 to 750.
Another failed Thermalright product concept
I don't follow their logic: spend a lot of time to remove the stock cooling from you GTX 280 and potentially void a warranty, then add a whole bunch of nickel (heat-retaining) heatpipe components to your video card, and then add a fan. Oh- by the way, we won't include a fan. Also- you've just used two additional slots.
You've just paid more, got less, and will likely void a warranty in the process. Goodie.
id much prefer an AC Twin Turbo tbh. That or the t-rad
