Water Coolig 580s...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
so ive decided to watercool the rest of my system and get some water blocks on my 580s....

im currently looking at the GTX580-HS with mcw82 from swiftech or the EK-FC580 which is the copper versions from EK. any one have any experience with these?

i was thinking of replacing the current 240.1 i have to my i7sb with a 360.2 for the whole system in push/pull config. any thoughs on this as well? thanks for any info.

Is this a reference 580?

If so go for a full cover block like the EK-FC580.

I have the EK-FC580 and its great! you should use very clean hands and try not to touch the copper as it will mark.

I imagine that your cpu block is copper if so get the EK-FC580 copper, if not ..




You can also get them in nickel. BUT make sure that it is the EN type as EN is the new Electroless nickel plating does not flake like the old nickel plating.



EN http://www.ekwaterblocks.com/shop/ek...en-nickel.html < BUY

none EN http://www.ekwaterblocks.com/shop/ek...al-nickel.html < DO NOT BUY

This applies for the CPU block Also, and another note either go all copper or all nickel, I havent have any issue with the copper but its only 3 weeks old, temps are 27 idle and 42 load at a 22 amb temp - (Idle is 5 delta)
