Best 980tTi Cooler

Jakerb2028
 Share

So I recently got a new case and my 980ti is now getting hotter since it isn't getting as much airflow as before. I have been wanting to get an aftermarket cooler for it and this gives me the perfect reason. I've seen a couple and this one from other forums looks like the best option. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA1K64146107&ignorebbr=

What does the LTT forum think of my choice? I have yet to order it and will have around $60 USD to spend on it not including buying better thermal paste.

spend $12 on a fan for the front of your case lol, or up the fan curve of your current card

The link is dead, but I can tell you that the Accelero extreme III/IV are both awesome, as is the morpheus.  If both of those are out of your budget, and you have a lot of space consider adapting a CPU cooler to the GPU as a cost effective and quiet solution (remember to keep the vrms safe)

Want to custom loop?  Ask me more if you are curious

I have a custom fan curve and it doesn't help very much and there is no good mounting for a frontal fan. My specs are i5-6400, Artic Alpine 11 gt rev cpu cooler, msi b150 gaming m3 mobo, 16gb of g.skill ddr4 2400 ram, MSI 980Ti Founders Edition, evga 450b  psu all inside a DIYPC DIY-Model X-W-RGB ATX Mid Tower Case. I have 2 fans mounted on the bottom to bring air up directly on the 980 but it really isn't enough. I have a good extra 3-4 inches of space from the card to the front of the case. Will this be plenty for the extreme?

Yes, the cooler fits in the case.

Gotcha. Completely forgot about it. My temps have hit 83c while in 7 days to die. I had an overclock of +250 on core and +350 on memory but currently have everything back to default since it was overheating and crashing games. Non overclock the highest I have seen is 75c while playing Deserts of Kharak.

83c isn't overheating. Are you referring to 83c at stock or while oc'ing?

He was talking about mounting an intake on the front?

OC. When it hits 83 whatever game I am running crashes. I have pinpointed it to overheating. I ran some tests. The first one was taking my pc to my dads when my brothers went down for his weekend and went to the extremely cool basement and put my overclock back on and it did not crash at all no matter what game I ran. It also never hit anything above 60c. Test worked great but froze to death playing 7 days lol. I also reseated it and checked the power cables. If it isn't overheating what else could it be? If I somehow come off in an ahole way my bad lol. Just trying to fix my baby XD. I have no money for another gpu currently.

Higher temps can make it harder to achieve a stable oc so better cooling would help.

There are 3 120mm fan mounts at the front.

They're standard fan screws. In case you didn't know, you're supposed to remove the front panel when installing fans.

I know I'm supposed to remove the front it just looks like the fans will move up and down while mounted since there aren't screw sized holes.

The screws are tight enough that the fans don't move.
