    What do I do if the place where the fans and lighting plug in are stuck. Is there a good way to loosen them?

    A month after I watched this my 270X decided to finally kill a fan after 4 years of 24/7 spinning. I have zero need for a new GPU so this is right down my alley.

    Did this for my ridiculously loud – and cool! Zotac 1050ti OC. One Noctua ULN 80mm fan. Result: same temps, 50C max, 25C idle, and zero sound. Zotacs default fancurve is a mystery to me.

    The OEM style coolers need constant air pressure into a "sealed" heatsink chamber on the other hand after market coolers need high airflow to a wide "open" heatsink,if Linus used a centrifugal cooler(turbo one) on the Titan it would work just fine.

    you should have used that insane mini fan on steroids that you showed off a few months ago, would be interesting to see what a hurricane inside the titan would do

    Can you show a GPU cooler upgrade kit of any kind? these are fun… but I really rather watch you be serious and show me stuff I really want to use.

    Busted HSF unit on GPU, just get an Artic cooler for more budget friendly, or go the whack route and do AIO if you don't want to futz with a custom loop.
