Looks very nice. I'd try putting a decent fan directly blowing on those VRM coolers just to see if anything happens. If temps don't drop, I'd guess they either miscalibrated or didn't hook up the temperature sensors.
Hmmm that is a digital vrm and normally do run very hot but you need to find better coolers since the ones that come with the heatsink were meant for basic mosfets on nvidia cards and some ati. Don't you thermal pads to stick them but use bare vrm cooler and arctic silver 5 instead. It is what I use.
Then I could apply thermal paste and bolt it to the card .
Please get back to me nforce4max, I'd love to know how you stick those heatsinks without any thermal pads.
Anyone else got any 2 cents to give me ???
Nice find and I thought they no longer made those BUY IT. They do a wonderful job. As for mounting coolers with AS5 they don't fall off unless they get bumped around to much but if left alone for a while the compound becomes almost rock hard. that is how I cool the power vrm on my x1900xt, 8800gtx, both my 9800gt 1gb cards and it works well but time is key.
Yeah I might aswell give it a shot. It should do a better job than those heatsinks that came with the HR-03 GT.
I take it that you remove the thermal pad completely, then apply the AC5?
I wish I could get free delivery on that Zalman ZM-RHS70, Costs £3 for the heatsink and £7 for delivery : /. Ohwell I'll still get it.
Thanks for your help nforce4max, I'll let you know how I get on.
In the pic I noticed it is a pushpin so there really isn't a need to worry but the as5 method is what I use for when the cooler or the board does not have any holes to mount but use any way to improve cooling. Keeps my cards happy. That is how I cool my 8800gtx.
