heating system for Quadro 4000
HOW TO DEAL WITH THE TREMENDOUS HEAT DISSIPATION FROM A QUADRO 4000 GPU?

I HAVE A VERY GOOD VENTILATED CASE WITH A HYDRO SERIES FOR MY CPU...

WHAT'D I DO WITH QUADRO?
ITS FAIRLY EXPENSIVE AND I DO NOT WANT TO TAKE ANY RISK WITH IT.

SO IT THERE IS ANYTHING LIKE A CPU COOLER, IT WOULD BE GREAT.


Thnx for any help...

Have you monitored its temp? Unless you are overclocking it should keep itself in normal operating range. It may run warm, but its within design specs. You can always aim another fan at it. This card is known to run warm.

I would take the heatsink off and check the hole spacing. From the newegg pics it looks like either the GT200 mounting or the G80/Fermi mounting holes.

Any univeral block that fits those should work just fine, though make sure to buy some heat sinks for the VRM's on the card.

What kind of temperatures are you seeing? The Quadro 4000 is quite a warm running card.

in its stock fan speeds the gpu hits temperatures of about 70-80F

HoolywoodPC repair,

What if I aim a fan at it to cool it and then another facing out to suck the air out? 120 mm fan?

I really did not understand what you wrote below regarding VRM...
technically I am not so smart !!

Do you mean 70 to 80C??? because, 80F (26C) is not bad...

With regards to the other points - if you don't class yourself as technically smart (lol), then replacing the heatsink etc may be a little too important for you to be learning / experimenting on.

The fan idea can / does work - you can aim a fan (of any size, but 120mm are popular) so that the expelled air is directed towards the intake of the Quadro card - thus it should run cooler. You may have to put a secondary fan to direct air at this one... but that depends upon your case. Maybe post a picture or two...? You would also have to fix the fans so they don't move around (cable ties / zip ties work fine) and ensure that your electrical cables etc don't come too close to the blades (again ties work really well). :)

Sorry for my conversion mistake, It goes up to 60-75 Celsius when on load.

[b]BTW Delta, by technically not being smart, I simple wanted everyone who reads this to know how much hardware knowledge I have, so that they don't suggest anything highly complicated to me. I don't know about you, but I do not want to take risk and screw up my Quadro 4000 card, ripping it open and operating on it. If I make any mistakes, its going to be a very very EXPENSIVE mistake, at least for me, it is.[/b]

About the fan idea, yes it possible. I haven't assembled my machine yet. tested quadro on a friend's machine.
When we rendered a Maya scene in Furry Ball renderer (assuming you know what I just wrote), is when we monitored the temperature.

I have a Corsair 800D case.

Thanx for you help !!

60 to 75*C is actually not bad at all for a Quadro 4000 card. Modifying or changing your cooler will immediately void the warranty of your card, so as Delta said you are much better off ensuring your case has good and clear airflow than attempting any changes.

Basically, listen to Delta :)

I though it is a bad temperature for a GPU unit.

anyways i will do what delta told regarding fan placements

thnx guys

Yeah, I thought that's what you meant - it just sounded amusing to me /wink.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />

GPUs in general can take that sort of heat... but the cooler it runs, the better.

Also, I completely agree about not taking the card apart - it's a lot of money... best to try on a less expensive card if you want to try that sort of thing.


Oh, thanks J :)

I buy Quadro 4000 , It get overheat Like 82'c-90'c .


Any cooling solution will be helpful for this type of high-end GPU.

The Corsair 800D is not a GPU aircooling friendly case. Temps are good, but when the heatsink collects dust it may overheat.

You might start thinking of getting a new case (IMO). 800D is mainly a WC enthusiast chassis.

Hi there! got a Quadro 4000 on my Dell T5600 and in 'normal' Solidworks 2012 session it reach 78°-80° but with "EVGA Precision X" software I keep it at 66° trottling the fan speed at 50%(room temperature 19°). Just for curiosity there is an hardware way to keep it even + cool? ? ? thank you guys ! and have a nice day! TTDuke
