Does anyone know whether the universal GPU waterblocks can be used with the 6950 Direct CU II 2GB?

I've been looking at this one - http://www.specialtech.co.uk/spshop/customer/Swiftech-MCW82-Universal-Graphics-Card-Waterblock--MCW82-pid-14682.html

Yeah the universal blocks work, just make sure you got some heatsinks for your chips etc.

Ah that's good to know. So i will just need VRM heatsinks?

Bought 2 of the 6950 direct CU II's. There won't be much space between the cards on my motherboard which will cause the top GPU to have slightly higher temperatures. I will have a 230mm side fan blowing on to them which should help. I'm thinking of replacing that with 4 120mm fans if it will produce more airflow than the 230mm fan.

By the way, are the universal blocks hard to install?
It seems like they just screw onto the GPU core.

kinda weird encounter you had there, can't say it ever happened to me before, but glad it's working nicely now.
strange, but to be honest, i don't know much about the asus smartdoctor as i never really used it, i'd recommend you to try msi afterburner, or if you wanna stick with asus softeware, you can also use the asus gputweak (choose your operating system and under utilities you will see the download link).

Msi afterburner won't let unlock voltage, and when I overclock even by 50MHz, BF3 will just crash.

Looks like your card has ZERO overclocking ability. redface.gif

Not even 50mhz?

No, the whole reason i bought the XBOX HUEG CUII was to overclock it, now that I can't I feel like I should have gone with evga.
