Hail comrades,

 

I've been enjoying my mini-itx build the past couple years using a Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced as the shell the Asrock z77e-itx as my motherboard. When I bought my Galaxy 660 Ti (Model 66NPH7DV6XXZ, 2GB version) I never noticed how loud the fans were because this card was champing most of the games I was playing without any problems (or going past 50% fan speed)

 

Well, I've enjoyed the card for two years, the warranty is out, and I just don't feel comfortable watching it go over 80 degrees celesis on newer games. The funniest part is that it doesn't even go past 80% fan speed, also holy crap it's loud after 60%. I definitely need to replace the fan somehow and I doubt an aftermarket cooler like the arctic accelero series would fit inside of my case... unless there is some sort of low profile or one the same size as my stock cooler out there. I've been googling for hours to see if anybody has a solution for this and I really have nothing.

 

Anybody have any wisdom to share with me? I am up for rigging it in any way possible.

Hi, the stock cooler you currently have the graphics card is a Nvidia reference design cooler hence it's loudness during heavy load and based from the case you have, this will be tough finding a aftermarket solution to fits in it. You can install a larger aftermarket cooler but it would take about 2.5 to 3 slots meaning you will have to run the system without the side panel. You can use the Kraken G10 to watercool it although there is no space to mount the radiator in the case unfortunately.

That is a really nice solution! If I rip out the HDD bay, I might be able to fit something inside. According to newegg, these are the compatible models for it.

 

Compatible Liquid Coolers
- NZXT: Kraken X60, Kraken X40
- Corsair: H110, H90, H55, H50
- Antec: KUHLER H2O 920 V4, KUHLER H2O 620V4, KUHLER H2O 920, KUHLER H2O 620
- Thermaltake: Water 3.0 Extreme, Water 3.0 Pro, Water 3.0 Performer, Water 2.0 Extreme, Water 2.0 Pro, Water 2.0 Performer
- Zalman: LQ-320, LQ-315, LQ-310

 

I will research every single one to these to find the best cooler for my case that I can rig inside. Thank you good sir!

 

Update: The Zalman LQ-310 seems really solid and looks like it could fit!

If you someone manage to remove the HDD cage and properly mount a 120mm radiator then you got yourself a quiet and cool graphics card, good luck mate!
