Not sure if this is the section to put this, but it has to do with WCing also.

Does anyone know how MSI treats RMAs on cards that have been water cooled? If anything goes wrong should I just put on the original HSF and shroud that it came with and hope for the best?

Also, what are some good VGA coolers or plates that won't run out my bank? (As you can see I'm new to water cooling lol)

So pretty much throw the the original shroud back on it. Thanks! What actual cooling block and other things would be good to go with?

Yea you usually always RMA video cards just how they came when you got it. Are you asking for a GTX 470 water block? I personally LOVE the EK full cover blocks. My card right now with higher room temps stays around 45C-48C while gaming.

Looks cool. How much are they? Generally, how much would an initial water cooling loop cost? Like just a basic one to cover my 470 and my i7

Ya basically if you need to send any watercooled card in for RMA put the original heatsink back on and try to make it loook completely normal, don't remove any stickers or anything.

Keep every part, every screw. and when needed make it look brand new, put back together and RMA. I put all my screws and parts in a pill bottle and put in my eVGA box. so I have it all if ever needed
