Hello fellows OC,

My first question is as titled, does water cooling gpu required reference card? If so, how can you tell reference card from non-reference by look at the specs (such as on Newegg specs). Secondly, how effective is universal gpu waterblock?

Thanks,
X

You don't always require reference cards, it really depends on the block manufacturer as to what cards they choose to support.

EK has a good configuration guide and a list of supported cards and recommendations on what blocks can work with different models / revisions of cards.

generally most people look for a block they like and see if it's still in production and buy it and then get the card to suit it.

I do it either that way or double check through EK's http://www.coolingconfigurator.com/ which lets you know if their block works on the gpu you are looking to buy.

DON'T WORRY! I didn't brick my phone...oh wait...give me an hour I'll figure it out.
