fans are on 70 % I think it's due to the fact that my cards are Inno3d. they do not have the dualfan profile design, and are only equipped with a single fan. It is simply not as powerful as most other cooling solutions ofr the gtx 560 And in theory, 80c isnt too hot, as they are designed to run rather hot .. Im just looking for that last bit of performance, and therefore i conclude that it might get unstable from running that hot

Serious if you want truly performance gains, you should go for higher card like 570,580 or even 590. The 560 is mid-range card, I think someone would think *** watercooled a 560 (waste money?)

Yeah maybe you're right... that extra kick of performance just doesnt seem to justify the 1000 $ the 590 costs in denmark .. Neither does it justify the 1100$ 570 sli and since most of my rig is watercooled, i thought it would be pretty cool hehe

maybe just gpu only blocks for them since spending $100 for a block for a $250 card seems kind of backwards to me, unless you are doing it for the cool factor

yeah i know .. will i be able to mount a gpu block only? My logic just tells me, that in order to do so, i must remove the stock heatsink/fan. If i do this and just adda gpu block, won't the rest of the card heat up to dangerous temps ? But maybe i could buy gpu vrm etc blocks apart, mount them on the cards and maybe be able to transfer those to other nvidia cards in the future, instead of a full block?

I have now received 2x gtx 560 full cover nickel/acetal blocks for my gtx 560s. They are really works of art! such build quality put into them .. I have to take care not to drool all over them

I have not mounted them yet - i think i plan on doing a log with my new blood red project fully submerged
