AMD talked about the possibility of personalizing the cover of the cooler. A few days ago, AMD introduced appropriate files for CAD Cover processing with help of 3D-printer or jigsaw CNC.

Now, AMD published documentation , which allows the lid to create a cooler with your own hands. It shows the steps to remove and replace the metal lid with an explanation of each step are given recommendations.

    • Do not remove the front cover when the graphics card is installed in the system


  • Do not remove the front cover when the card is working or it is supplied with power



  • Make sure that the workplace is exempt from collection, taken ESD



  • The front panel can be removed by unscrewing the four screws with hex-head video card front, as shown below
      • Do not loosen the other screws and modify other components of video




  • Use a suitable screwdriver or a hex wrench to avoid damaging the screws
      • When screwing the screws back, do not apply excessive force, so as not to drag them


As you can see, before the process of modification should prepare workplace. Electrostatic discharge, for example, can damage the electronics graphics, and excessive mechanical forces should be avoided. But with the proper experience no problems. Do you need to find the key to hex to remove the four screws.

But AMD separately notes that the company is not liable for any damage incurred due to modifications to the cooler. AMD does not provide spare parts for the case if the front panel of the cooler will be damaged.

In addition to replacing the lid modding can help in solving other problems CBO Radeon R9 Fury X. Users continue to report on the work of the pump is too noisy. Some retail sample pump noise is moderate, but in general, the problem was more serious than previously thought.

A simple foam insert between the pump housing and front cover will greatly reduce the noise. However, this decision is unlikely to approve AMD. But we will make such modifications in the coming days to share the results.
