sorry Moonpig, gotta love your layout !
What to know
Thanks for looking.
tranquillo rev. 2 pending sale at aria forums
T rad 2 work on a non ref 5870?
Not sure tbh.
All of the RAM and VRM heatsink are individual not a massive heatsink covering many components. there are also some low profile heatsink. Only problem I can think of is clearance but the low profile heatsinks should solve this .
If u have a pic of ur card's PCB, post it up and il see if I think it fits .
At a quick glance it looks fine.
when I am on my pc later, il have a more thorough look for u and highlight the areas that certain heatsinks could be used
had a look mate and here is what i have come up with.
On the card itself:
the red circled is the RAM which is easy to cool and is supported. these are easy to cool with the supplied heatsinks.
The green and pink circles indicate some type of power delivery/regulation (i think) components which may need cooling as i have outlined on the cooler itself (with a "?") where they seem to be using thermal pads to cool them. these should be fairly simple to cool with the supplied low profile heatsinks.
the green circled section indicates chokes (i think) which arent cooled by thermal pads, but more likely by the metal of the asus cooler directly touching them. these may be awkward to cool with supplied heatsinks, but im not sure if they actually need specific heatsinks as incidental airflow may be good enough..
the red squared section defo needs cooling as outlined where i have circled the thermal pad on the cooler itself entitled "power delivery". this should be easy enough to cool with supplied heatsinks.
the blue squared components look as if they need cooling but i think it would be awkward using the supplied heatsinks due to the number of heatsinks already used.
and here are all of the accessories that you can use to cool your card's components. 10 RAM/WRM sinks, 4 VRM sinks and 2 low profile RAM/VRM sinks.
here is my card with all of the necessary heatsinks applied.
as you can see, my reference 4870 needs far less components cooled.
the 5870 fits as it has the same mounting hole position as my 4870 (according to a DeepCool instruction manual). as your card is non reference but has so many extra features and components that need cooling, im gonna be honest and tell you that it would be a pain in the arse trying to cool everything with this T-RAD2 ! with so few heatsinks supplied, it is really designed for either reference cards which are listed as supported or cut-down non-reference cards with fewer vitally cooled components.
i have something else that u may be interested in though . il PM u !
Gelid tranquillo rev. 2 and HDMI cable set both sold and posted.
Trad2 still available
If t-rad is still about when I'm paid I'll have it, been after one for a while running them in passive mode with decent side panel fans was one of my favorite set ups cooling wise.
if u defo want it, id gladly reserve it for u? how long would u want me to keep it for ?
Trad2 still available
I'm due to be paid Monday, but might go through on Tuesday so lets call it Tuesday and I'll have it for sure
reserved for you then
Nice one, recorded delivery from post office should be about 4-5 pound right?
I recently sent a gelid tranquillo 2nd class recorded for £3.92 so hopefully it will be towards the £3 mark for the trad2 .
Bump to see if ur still interested in the trad2 .
Yeah got the pennies pm me with details : ]
Edit: I know you said it came with no fans, but you don't happen to have some just realized I gave all my 92s away. ( cept some OTT deltas lol)
Will pm details wen on my pc not phone .
No sorry, I borrowed 92mm fans from another cooler for the review. I found a single 120mm fan to offer better overall cooling performance anyway as it kept VRM temps lower.
I Have plenty of 120mm fans if u need one?
That's cool thank you I've got plenty of 120s, forgot I could attach them to it TBH.
I imagine I'll take off the fan attachment brackets and run it passive anyway as I'm only running my card at stock clocks at the moment.
ye, the good things about the TRAD2 is u have plenty of cooling options . passive, 92mm fan, dual 92mm fans and 120mm ... as standard!
PM with details coming !
all previous items now sold.
more items added + more to come soon .
taking pics for some more items so they will be listed soon
2 coolermaster coolers added
EDIT: CM Hyper 212+ removed from sale. it is just too good to warrant selling for £12.50 so il keep it instead !
