I've posted a comment to my support ticket - I'm a bit concerned that Graybeard phrases it as "there are a few left in stock," as I submitted my ticket right as we were advised. I've not received an update since then, so if they are suddenly out of the part needed to make this ~3-month-old issue right, I'll be pretty displeased.

Edit: Yup. Ticket just updated with "Unfortunately, we do not yet have any of these available." I'm hoping that this is just a miscommunication.

My temps are exactly like yours. I'm using the stock eVGA ACX 2.0+ cooler though. I wonder if a AIO will improve upon those temps.

What is your definition of full load?

Hey guys, I have an HG10 980 coming UPS today and I bought it mainly for stealth or quiet gaming... So do I need to replace the blower fan to silence this thing or is it acceptable compared to the stock fans blasting away?

Using an H60 with the 970 bracket idle Temps of 28-32, load usually 57-65, rarely near 70, mostly in RotTR. However, every once in a while, usually when I launch a game, the Temps will pop up to overheating Temps (90s), i have to reboot, then it's immediately fine. I tried changing the pump power setting in my bios to aux, worked for a couple of weeks, did it again. Bought a sata fan power adapter, did it almost immediately after, and then again the next day. I'm at a loss and not sure what else to try.

Could be a bad pump.

I would put in a support ticket with Corsair and see what they say.

Alright I got the HG10 installed on my 980 TI and I have no problems with the blower fan but my question is how tight should the m3 screws be? The manual says snug and not to over torque... Should the m3 screws be screwed in all the way or just tell they start to get snug??

I have mine to where the screws are snug but I can still see a little thread left on a couple of the screws...

Idle temps 32c / load temp 60c.



EDIT #1: I took the card and bracket out for closer inspection and what I found was that the screws have to be pretty close to all the way screwed in or the thermal pads wont touch... but in doing so the tighter the screws are the more it bends the PCB!

I just tried to tighten the screws to where there was the most minimal bend in the PCB but the pads were still touching.

Will report back if I have any problems.




EDIT #2 My OCD kicked in and with a few normal hardware screws and nuts I had laying around I was able to custom install the backplate on my EVGA 980 TI SC ACX 2.0+ along with the HG10 bracket. It was a PITA to take apart again but the PCB has a lot more strength now and it is not bending as much, The GPU also seems to be making better contact with the cooler since its straighter now.

So, Amazon has the fixed part in stock. That means I can spend another $40 and order a complete replacement for the non-working part I've had since November, and get it Wednesday. Or, I can wait until Corsair gets more of the standoffs for those of us with RMA tickets in (apparently late March.)

This is getting silly, guys.

I just got the HG10 N980 for my Titan X and the blower on it is very loud at idle temps which is a bit disconcerting. It is much louder than any other fan in my case, I'm guessing that is a manufacturing issue? Fan speed is 1680 RPM at idle temps (27 C) and 5% utilization.

You can swap your corsair fan with the nvidia blower fan. It'll fix the problem.
I didn't know we could swap out the corsair blower fan with the Nvidia blower fan. Could someone provide some instructions/pics on how to do it and how it ends up looking? Or is it better to do some sort of RMA for it?


Thanks in advance for any help!

Can you post some pics of it with the backplate on? I was considering ordering a backplate for my Titan X for this exact reason; I figured the backplate would strengthen the PCB and help prevent it from bending.

Thanks!!

If you have a problem and no one else can help, maybe you can hire these guys.. ----- >


Alright guys here are some pics of the custom backplate install on my EVGA 980 TI SC+ with the HG10 like you asked for.



This screw was so close to the GPU that I had to file the head down so the screw head didnt get in the way of the cooler. "Actually I used my dads grinder on the screw head and it only took me a minute or two to get the head flat". If you get some small nuts for your screws the grinding could be avoided all together probably but I was using the larger black standoffs I had on hand so that I didn't have to make that trip to the hardware store.











These are the two round head screws I had in my hardware collection. The longer screw is the one you want it will give you enough thread to screw into the HG10 bracket and has the correct threading. The black nuts/standoff's were leftover from a Corsair cooler so I made use of them. There is just enough thread on the screws to go into the bracket so be gentle with the threads and don't over tighten the screws just help snug them into the HG10 bracket and its smooth sailing... Let me know if you guys have any questions.

@GenCrusher

Thanks for the photos! I'm definitely going to get a backplate now as soon as they go in stock for my Titan X
