Does anyone know of a full cover waterblock for a msi lightning?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
i have msi lightning 6970's and i would like to put them into my loop but i can not find any "full cover" i can only find hybrid water blocks.

I love the twin Frozr III's but on a 100% they put out like 67dBa (LOUD) and it gets annoying after a while. Usually noise does not bother me but they are outrageously loud and i got them when they first came out so i couldn't find any reviews. I would like to avoid selling my cards and getting reference so....

Edit: BTW its 67dBa outside my case, with the side panel off its like 89dBa

I don't think you have many options other than gpu only blocks.

Perhaps it would be better to figure out why they're going to 100% in the first place? Even with benchmarks I can't get fan speed to go to 100% without forcing it in Afterburner. Max it usually hits is ~60%, and <50% in games.

Also, 90 dBA? Really? That's the sound of a full-sized diesel truck at 30 ft. Or a full-on blender at 3 ft. I don't know what's going on with your ears, but nothing in my case comes CLOSE to those volume levels.

There are several non-reference 6970 full cover blocks available. My Sapphire 6970's are non-reference. EK, Danger Den and Aquacomputer all make non-reference full coverage blocks.

(Both links show the 2 PCB's for 6970's)

I dont know if the MSI's are a completely different/new design.

im a temp whore, and i know i was over exagerating on the 90 it more like 67 with the case open and 40 with it shut. But the main reason i want to switch s because the cards just push the air into the case and make it hotter (not by much but as i stated i am a temp. whore)

The danger den site lists the compatibly. The aquacomputer ones won't work since the mounting holes on the MSI are different then the regular non reference PCBs. MSI designs their own PCBs.
