|The reference design 7970 and the Accelero|
|Removed the top part|
|Removed the heat sink block|
|Quickly removed thermal paste stuff|
|A little bit cleaner|
|Done cleaning the gpu chip|
|Now that is clean, it's like a mirror|
|Trying methods to hold everything in place...|
|Screwed the mounting plate with the backplate|
|Mixing the G1 thermal glue|
|Applied thermal glue and put heat sinks on the components|
And now we wait at least 5 hours...
Put the mounting plate back on the Accelero
Let's see how it performs :
Now the temperature stays under 60°C at full load (and under 50°c with the fans set to 100%)
It also appears that the rpm of the fans is wrongly reported/acquired.
It's really quiet compared to the reference design.
