post #11 of 24
How about forget about both of them and get the rasa block?

I cooled my 480 with an Enzotech CPU block I had. Works great. tongue.gif

Also, I have a MCW60 and would only recommend it if you know your fittings will mount fine. Even though it's an old, very simple block, it would still work fine otherwise.

Guys, I already own both the mcw60 and mcw82, lol. I also have a GT400 rev2 mounting kit (came with the mcw82) which fits on both the mcw60 and mcw82 to make them work with the gtx480 (as well as the 500 series I think, though I'm not sure ... won't matter though since I plan to skip 500 for next gen)

< 40c load? That's some freaking sweet temps if true!

I think I read that and ignored it. Sorry. tongue.gif

If I understand you now, I'd go with the MCW82 just because the fitting mounts look like they'd accept a wider variety of fittings. If that's not an issue, either one should work fine.

Watercooling a 480 is awesome. Knocks the temperatures right down so they stay in the 40s °C almost all the time. smile.gif

This is correct. The GT400 rev2 alternate mounting kit that comes with the mcw82 supports 470/480/570/580 and the default kit supports the 5000/6000 series from amd/ati

If you're planning on cooling the 480, I'd just go ahead and use the mcw60. It works fine with the stock unisink and there is no need to mod it.

Yeah, I can't wait to get this card sinked and under water. It does 850 core on stock volts furmark/gaming stable. Previous owner says he got 905 stable on air. I'm hoping to push it to 950 on water. Though honestly, even if I only hit the same OC as his on air, I'd still be happy.

just thought I would add- the GTX and GTZ will work with all of the MCW mounting kits as well... for those of you that may have an extra CPU block.. smile.gif

* I have used my Coppertop GTX+MCW mounting on a few GPU's... you think the MCW60 cools good... shoooot rolleyes.gif
