    Project Double dragon Asus Ares III




    so i have a new project i want to try with my ares iii 295x2 I want to try the card under extreme cooling but there are some challenges.

    first is how do i mount any cooling devices to this thing, i was thinking 2 gpu pots but with mounting the second pot thats close to the power connector faces some clearance issues.

    A option i have is to remove them and solder elsewhere but i want to be to keep it as stock as possible in case i wanted to return it to domestic duties lol.

    So heres the options i can lay the card flat and mount cpu pots on top the gpus or wait to see if i can get some copper spacers to sit between the gpu and the pot.

    second issue is what type of insulation method do i go with liquid rubber or vaseline :cry:




















    im going to try the cpu pot method first and see how it goes o_O

    Problem with ln2 is going to be the PLX. It's really close to one gpu core. Even closer than the setup on 5970 was and it hates cold if its the same chip they have been using all along. maybe that KP warmer and only DI would do the trick.

    Since its not volterra I say hardmod it.
