what are you temps?
With the IFX-14 I had idle temps around 35
With the stock TIM and before I moved the RAD I had 35-37 idle
Now I have 44 idle and it was the same last time before i tried AS5
Sorry if I just jumped in a bit late, but what was it that you just did that your temps raised? Push and Pull and rotated the H50 base?
idle temps suck with the h50
what is the load temps?
Idle temps do not count. What are load temps?
And double check your fans. You sure you didn't accidentally flip one around the wrong way?
Yep. I only asked because I've actually made the mistake myself before. It's easy enough to do.
Same here bro, just sometimes you don't notice even if you know by memory which way it goes.
Fans are both flowing in the same direction. Up and out of the case. Should have kept with the stock TIM lol. AS5 needs time to bed in I know. I will load it up and check temps.
if you really want a lower temp then you have to get some real watercooling
I might have to
does 120$ seem fair to get that G5 case paintet Metallic Red?
remember i live in denmark, så put 30% to your american prices
jusrt put an accelero S1 + 140mm noctua fan on my 5870. pics later.
Yeah sounds ok. Do you have to rub it back first? What sort of paint enamel or acrilic?
and one of the ram sinks i used on the VRM's
Cable ties would have to be one of the best inventions of all time.
idk, im not into all that, thought it was just 1 type haha
hells yeah. i wanted to keep the stock backplate, so i used zip ties to hold it on as well (for protection of the back of the card, as opposed to cooling)
There is acrylic base and enamel base. Most likely any paint on your case would be enamel if that is the case you cannot paint acrylic over the top. It would need to go back to bare metal. But if your mate is a panel beater spray painter hopefully he uses 2 pack which is enamel.
That cooler brings me back to the HD 4850 days , still one of the best I've used, how much better is it compared to the stock reference cooler Muss?
dunno, i assume lots
main advantage was noise, while the reference cooler didnt have much in the way of wind noise, it DID have an annoying rattle at anything but the slowest speed.
Is this necessary Mussels because in your system specs its written that you keep the card at stock clocks? Anyway i like it
My HIS 5870 only goes up to 900 core ... but its perfect I guess since its the most stable clocks my 5970 can get to without the VRMs reaching 120 degrees
ever tried putting a fan on the VRM sink maybe a little 50/60mm one it's surprising just much cooler they run with even a piffling little bit of air moving over te sink
