Transfering coolers between gpus

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have an rx 560 that constantly gets hot under load (over 80 degress even with fans going full speed), its not overclocked or anything, the only difference from the factory is the fact that i used a bios mod to unlock it from an rx 560D (basically a rebranded 460) to a normal 560 with all the cores and such unlocked, i have an old r9 270 that died but the fans and such still works, i took both cards apart and the cooler mounts perfectly, and the fans connect, i figured since the r9 270 was a significantly hotter card, it would likely be able to cool a lot better, would installing the 270 cooler on the rx 560 affect anything? Or possibly mess anything up?

as long as the coldplates match up with the CPUs then there should be no problems. hopefully the cooler on the R9 270 you have is better than the one that was on your RX 560, but i cant guarantee that

 

*edit*

you are also transfering coolers between graphics cards, not CPUs


I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play MTGA & watch anime at 720p...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee! The Cassette Deck!

 

The original LAN PC build log! (Old, dead and replaced by The Toaster Project & 5.0)

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

Haha yeah, i caught my mistake as i was looking at your comment, its been fixed, but the rx 560 cooler is very basic, while the r9 270 is a fairly beefy cooler, so hopefully itll work
