Z600 lowering temps

Power consumption depends abount the configuration, but with dual 95W CPU's, one GPU with 6 pin connector, all DIMM slots full and few drives should't be above 400W at max load.

It is GTX660, but I will replace it soon with either GtX1060 or RX480.

And you did not have any problem with the power cables of the graphics card?

 

The power supply only has a connector for 6-pin graphic cards 😞

My GTX660 has only one 6 pin connector so it is not a problem. GTX1060 and RX480 also require only one 6pin cable.

This is my last upgrade of Z600.  

 

I found this neat bracket for SSD on Aliexpress. It gives one free HDD slot in Z600. 🙂

I also found gread air cooler for Z600- Dynatron G-17. It can fit and is not expensive as HP performance cooler. And it probably cools better. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Is this a 4 wire or 5 wire cooler?  eg. Will it plug directly on the motherboard or do I have to do surgery?

 

My newly maxed out Z-600 is running way to hot for me to be happy and I am reluctant to do a LCS so I am very interested in this upgrade.

You can actually run two Gtx 1060's on your Z600 by using the "leftover" Sata and Mobex connectors into a 6 pin cable for the 2nd gpu.

 

Its been running for two days now.  Gpu and power lead wires are not getting hot (or even warm).

It is 4pin cooler. No, you don't have to do anything, it fit as is.

What's the point of having two GTX 1060 when they don't support SLI? Only GPUs from 10xx line that support SLI are GTX 1070,1080 and 1080 Ti. Actually, HP Z600 MBO doesn't support SLI either. And there is a good reason why Z600 PSU doesn't have more PCIe power connetors. It has really bad cooling. Even my GTX660 caused PSU to make too much heat inside the case. That will be solved when I make few holes and install two slim 100 mm fans on the unit.

I'm not a gamer so I don't care about SLI.  I use the gpus for intense parallel calculations as part of the BOINC distributed processing network.  I help with astronomical searchs and various kinds of medical/biological modeling.

 

I'm confused.  I just got a 4 pin cooler and it doesn't "fit as it is".  Can you find/send me a picture of the power plug? Did you have to do any surgery?  

 

The one I have I would have to slice some plastic off of it.  Unfortunately it turned out to be too tall 😞  That is why I am interested in your recommendation.

 

Thank you,

Tom
