Best GTX 570 For Full Block - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Thread Starter 
So reference full cover blocks will work on the classy 570? Specifically the ones I linked above. Most of the blocks ive found are both compatible with the 570 and 580.

as stated nickel is a silver coating over what is copper underneath, will not change color in the air. the copper blocks are bare copper, and will oxidise slightly in the air. neither nickel plating or oxidisation are going to make any difference to your temps. same with the plexi (clear) vs acetal (black) neither make any difference to your temps.

as far as the res combo or not... thats up to you. space saving vs not.

yes, any full coverage block that is designed for the 580 will fit the classy 570

i know this might not look as sexy as full coverage blocks, but performance wise it's a pretty good way to go about it since it doesn't add heat dump from the power phase circuitry or memory into the loop

another upside is if you change out video cards you aren't stuck with a $100 block you can't use again, you'd just be stuck with a $40 heatsink for the ram and memory

Thanks for the advice. I love the look of the full cover blocks so Im doing this for aesthetic reasons as well. This build is going to last me a long time, I dont plan on even thinking of upgrading till well after maxwell comes out and prices go down, unless for whatever reason there is a new gen of game that comes out that sli 570's cant handle. This will be my first attempt at watercooling as well, hope i dont **** it up. +repped.

Classy 570 is still based on the same reference 570/580 design. Full cover block should fit
