Heya cryptokeeper,

I think you might have misunderstood my question, or I worded it poorly.  One of your cables from the PSU to the video card is different from the other (I believe the PSU only comes with 5 PCI-E cables as opposed to six.  Did you make the 6th one, or does somebody sell one?

Thanks!

Ah gotcha, I had to borrow another PCI-E connector from another power supply. The LEPA 1600W only came with five. Good eye on catching that.  Wink

I guess they anticipated people to use the adapter that came with the video card.

Finally!!
Finally someone used the brains to have the rig pointing upwards, easing the heated air flow!!!

Well done, sir!
Go back to page 43 of this thread. It's been done many times already.

Quite right, my mistake!  Cheesy

Ok, time for a bit of showing off my rig:



5x Sapphire Radeon 7970
3750kHash/sec Litecoin
and blowing the heat right out of the window!

Is that window always open? What if it starts to rain?

I've seen a few pics today where it looks like there are fans blowing into the exhasts of the GPUs? OR are they pulling the hot air?

Most GPUs blow very little out the exhaust holes in the backplate.  Maybe the ones with the old hairdrier coolers on them, but not the type with the 2/3 open fans.  They dump their heat to the case, so adding a fan is ideal.

I agree with what you're saying.  However since they do blow some heat out of those exhaust holes, blowing air into them would seem to be counter-productive.

With a big-ass fan like that, the added benefit greatly outweighs the tiny bit of cooling lost by blowing air up the card's exhaust.

that fan setup works with those type cards because there is no single exhaust point/hole in non-ref gpus

Yeah, I concede that.  The more I consider it, the more I realize you wouldn't be able to channel the air through the cards effectively, since it could draw from anywhere.

They sell the 11W/mK and the 17W/mK pads. I use the 11s cuz they're cheap, but if you need the absolute best, go with the 17s. There is literally nothing better for sale, anywhere.

*looks at pants* Well that's sort of personal question...  Grin Grin

It depends on the thickness of the original pad, but you want to go as thin as you can. I used 1mm for the RAM chips, and 0.5 for the VRMs.

Thank you
I have a thermal paste similar to that one (same brand) that works pretty good.
I didn't know that I should change the thermal pads from the memory also.
one question, these pads are good for VRM's as well?

thanks for the info!!

Change the paste. Install the heatsink then remove and check see what pattern the TIM leaves behind.

thanks for the info!
What should I be looking at?, in the pattern I mean, other than the paste is well spread?
