    iavoe got a reaction from SkilledRebuilds in Control Fan Curve - On the GPU backplate?   
    The 2nd idea I came up with to improve a graphics card design, it's was sooo much work to draw it out.
    It may be too fictional, but it is an idea, not an implementation. As I don't know how actually to control fan speed on hardware side.
     
    This card gives 3 modes for user:
    default bypass - nothing set, just like fresh install of other graphic cards, for users who don't change settings
    Summer without AC - reduce target temp and ramp up fan speed
    Performance - ramp up everything

     
    Pros:
    no more slow controller software download-installation and finally change settings (except when changing voltage)
    setting is kept applied when installing GPU to a different OS (right now it can't even be done across Windows)
    relatively cheaper than hire software engineers to write and maintain controller software, +greatly reduced server downloading fees
    many manufactures are actually sucks on controller software, (e.g. MSI Aftb has a horrible fan curve controller, Aorus Engine can't start as windows start, and Unix based OS support?)
    muuuuuch easier trimming fan speed and temperature - instant response and much better accuracy (0~255)
     
    Cons:
    more testing before release (accidentally overclocking fans, black screen because of wrong frequency)
    may require a small monitor to show the current frequency and fan speed, or have to install things like a HWiNFO
    dust get into sliders - more items to disassemble and to clean
    different graphics card may use different mechanism to control fan speed, increases circuit design cost (or not?)
    potential user anxiety and aesthetic problem
    huge CPU cooler blocking sliders (give user a small claw thing to move sliders?)
     
    Improvements can be done:
    not as much as a 45° inclined slider angle - leaves more room for a secondary Vcore, Vmem, Vpackage controller that counters voltage fading
    add a small monitor to see actual fan speed and clock speed
    add a button to override fan curve and target temperature (to 100%) when GPU is too hot - to counter computer case airflow problems
     
    I feel someone is going to ask why I use a lot of font colors, it's because people like RGBs so here it is

    So I suddenly came up with an idea and decided to spend my whole day on it. This thing combines a double fan, tilted fin and a separated video port slot, with no feature lost.

    Compare to conventional blower cards, this design gives 150% of cooler fins' area with enough space to mount 4 narrow heatpipes, the video ports are gone so air can pass the pcie shield easily, 2 fans can pump much more air, and that's about it, I guess.
     
    I think this board also has enough space to cut 2 some holes for the 2 fans to draw more air from the back of this card.
     
    !Please note I did not work with strict scaling, so everything in term of size are wrong.
    !Please note those small details are just placeholders to make this drawing more promising.
    !Please note that this picture is not made from MS Paint, its made from FastStoneCapture.
    !Please note that this could be the reason who drawn this image has trouble to find part time jobs.
     
    For the video port cable management, you can actually get away with a group of curved cable in both vertical and horizontal mount. Just like the curved AIO watercooling tubes. You can also add RGB on these internal cables like that glowing Lian Li 24pin power.

    1.Evetything begins in Jan 2018, I've decided to build a new PC and get rid of my old i5 3570k, gtx 680 PC
     
    2.I really don't have much budget, so I decided to buy 1 affordable part per 2 months, finally in Nov 2018, I've built a Gigabyte AB350m Gaming 3, Ryzen 1800X mATX system
     
    3.This system has a bad bios, bad VRM, and everything-onboard-overheating issue, therefore it won't overclock although being marketed as OC-ready, I've learned that I cannot go cheap on motherboard by killed my 1800X (or it didn't die, but just want to leave me lol)
     
    4.I sold everything else to someone, and got that CPU replaced to r5 1600 because the PC store doesn't have any other ryzen stock anymore
     
    5.I've used the rest money on receipt and some budget, got an Aorus x470 Ultra Gaming (because it has a great reputation on Youtube), I thought it would satisfy my need, but it's a beginning of new suffering
     
    6.On Mar 2019, I made sure that I've got higher end parts, this time I spend 90CAD for a Seasonic PSU, 135CAD for NZXT h500i case, 400CAD for GTX 1070 (most budget cames from card refund and shamefully asking my mom)
     
    7.I've finally built it on Apr 2019, however, due to I'm taking summer college course and personal studies, I've no time to prune the software part but just installed the system and made some driver installation and configs
     
    7.5.I've got myself a pair of Corsair 3000Mhz CL15-15-15-something Ram, later I've boosted to 3333mhz with 15-17-17-34 and it is very stable
     
    8.I've sold my R5 1600 and bought an R5 2600 tray version from international shipping (cheaper but no returning after 10days, shipping's taken 22days), I don't recommend anyone try this unless you are scrapingly low budget like me XD
     
    9.The 1st time I open the bios (x470), I was shocked, it's exact the same as AB350m, after bios updated to f42a and chipset driver is installed, I've found that weird things started to happen
     
    10.I've found that there is no CPU voltage option is available, nor bios or their Easytune software, the closest option is 'Chipset Core 1.05V' (that 1.05V is written in title), and if I increase it (tried 1.35, 1.37, 1.41), my network card will fail but the system does gets more stable in higher base clock
     
    11.The power usage when using Ryzen Master was 1.39V, and Ryzen Master can push this CPU to 4.11Ghz (set to 4.125), hit a 1408pts in cinebench.
     
    12.There is no way to run Ryzen Master automatically dueing boot, so I had to find other software available, and I noticed often lose my NVME SSD during every bios change, if it happens I must power off, and wait for a few seconds to power on
     
    13.I tried to figure out if there are software issues, I've made reinstallations of chipset and LAN driver, this is what I believe the cause of my Windows OS begin to fail
     
    14.while I was still having no internet (I still kept that 'voltage setting' on, because the system would blackscreen), I started to unable to doubleclick open desktop and startmenu folders, The only way is to rightclick 'explorer.exe' pick a location, and use explorer to browse
     
    15.The NVME loss issue has became even worse (but drive temprature has never got close to 40C), each system restart will now require a manual power cut to detect NVME drive, which I would say the restart function is gone, I finally fixed internet by change 'voltage setting' back to auto and dial CPU freq back to auto (no more oc)
     
    16.It's too late, my system has gone apart and after 5 hours of researching, I've only found that there's no one experienced the same as me yet, I did all the work and hit straight to 5AM from 11PM night, gotta say that's way more frustarion than my final exam study
     
    17.I've finally decided to fully reset the system, this means all my previous software installation need to be repeated, but I don't think I have a choice, I did it and it actually solved my problem
     
    18.After did basic setting and microsoft malware removal, I've set my r5 2600 to 3.9Ghz with full auto voltage, it actually holded a 15min stress test no problem, scored around 1350pts in cinebench. I guess that's it.
    Finally, some successful freaking OC, thanks for reading :)

    iavoe got a reaction from bebejapes in AMD RYZEN 'add a donut' heatsink design (might work)   
    Here it is, maybe Linus can make a video from it:

    Added: This cooler is supposed to add onto the side of chip, and it's not efficient for desktop usage since normal solution is enough
     
    Also we need the cooler a bit less high than the IHS (CPU lid) to leave some room for pressure release (easier for thermal expand go vertically, makes it less wanted to expand horizontally, which it won't crack or press anything)
