Hi, how di you make that backplate? Is it made of metal?today I completed my mod with a DIY backplate - nothing fancy, just for protection
I doubt it will help anything but I also put some thermal pads behind the area of the VRMs
next up I will move the card in my MIT1 build and see how it performs there...
PS: as you can see, I made two of those backplates. If someone is going to replicate this mod and should need one - just let me know.
edit: here are the test results with the backplate - a little bit cooler but this could also be the weather today
hey, i have stupid questionthose are solid caps - they usually don't get that hot and with the PALIT cooler mod you can probably get away with cooling them only by the airflow the fan is pushing against them
hey, i have stupid question
but now my rtx a4000 has audible coil whine while idling (like annoying level since it is louder than the gpu fan at 1000 rpm)
definitely not 7660b coil whine i am sure
is it possible that becasue i didnt cool those solid caps properly thus make them whining?
What about it? The 3060 and 3060ti from Colorful are already ITX sized.what about 3060ti Colorful mini?
An interesting mod. That guy says he is using that phoenix cooler which is just taller than StormX cooler as I understood. That Phoenix cooler seem to have 3 heatpipes just like StormX. I wonder if that "tallness" does actually make much difference... Also I know that 3060ti coolers come with 4 heatpipes. Not sure how tall they are but most likely same as StormX. I hope someone would test some of these coolers for the communitySaw interesting stuff in reddit today
Single Fan RTX 3070 mod
TLDR: not really worth hassle
- had to get broken rtx 3060 pheonix to use its heastink
- it is 2.5 slot so it is not relevant in conventional case anyway
- Asus RTX 3070 SI is hard to get
From what i see is
our Palit/PNY RTX 3060 heatsink would fit on reference pcb of RTX 3070
it just need to install some additional thermal pads on some areas
but cooling wise? definitely need undervolt
No chance, the 3070 chip and cooler mounting holes are different, so even if the PCB was near identical it wouldn't work.
What kind of temperature are you getting? I modded my OEM Dell 3060 Ti with the Palit cooler and getting 80C full load. The problem is my hotspot temp jump all the way to 95c - 100c. Is this normal?@REVOCCASES Thank you for this content/thread. Tonight I completed my 3060 TI ITX Custom. I rescued an OEM Dell 3060 TI from the mines on eBay for $285, and paired it with the PNY ITX version of the single fan cooler / also from eBay ($54 shipped). While the PNY version of the cooler is actually louder vs. the stock Dell twin fan cooler, temps are not that different. I'm pretty happy with this thing so far, I'll be even happier once it's home in my Velka 3. Thank you again for the inspiration.
Also, the included mounting screw are quick long. Is this a problem of inadequate mounting pressure?What kind of temperature are you getting? I modded my OEM Dell 3060 Ti with the Palit cooler and getting 80C full load. The problem is my hotspot temp jump all the way to 95c - 100c. Is this normal?
