Well the frames jump constantly but average is 45FPS on a 950 clock.

The twin frozr's are usually custom PCB's so they may not work. I'm not sure, but you should look into it first before you buy, may save you some headache down the road.

Edit: Yea, looks like the twin froz 560TI is a custom PCB

FYI I have 2 560-TI TF2 cards in SLI and I know how you feel about water cooling. I just redid my whole loop and REALLY wanted to include the GPU's in the water loop but was unable to find anything that would work.

A few bits of information that might be helpful in your search (as I have given up).
The VRAM does not need to be cooled (if you notice when you take off the heatsink that there is nothing sitting on the memory, it is simply just air cooled.

The only block you will be able to find is of the "universal" type (which should work fine), however I was unable to find one that looked like it would match the hole pattern as the card seems like it has a very retangular hole pattern and most universal GPU waterblocks look like they have a square pattern. I am unwilling to drop 40-60 dollars per block to find out that they don't fit haha. I have scoured the web, but it appears most people are just happy with the TF coolers and I havent found anyone that has used a universal block on the cards.

Temperature wise, I hear what your saying. I've experienced temps well into the 80-90c even on just a mild overclock. However it looks like MSI didn't do such a fantastic job with their thermal paste on these cards. I replaced the thermal paste with some silver 5 and then some shen TIM and I now can't get a temperature over 75c in furmark with a MASSIVE overclock.

So at this point I have decided to wait until I find someone who can verify that a specific universal block works and then I will purchase some.. in the meantime the air cooling works just fine with the new TIM

I'm water cooling a non-reference video card right now, and everything has been great! Since you can only look to GPU-only blocks, you will need to buy heatsinks for the VRAM and such. Based on my experience with water cooling this card, I have not seen any significant drawback on not water cooling the VRAM, especially since I have some PCI fans blowing air on them.

As far as what GPU-only block to get, I went with the Enzotech VGA-IS because it's not as restrictive at the Swiftech one; please note, however, I think Swiftech released another version of their latest block to make it less restrictive, but you might want to check on that to be sure.

Thanks for the info looks like Ima just replace the paste and maybe in to future, will buy a universal block.
If I ever do get a universal block and make this happen, i will post many pics and results, to this thread if it will still be up. Thanks to you all for your help!

I just installed the XSPC Universal Block on one of my 560 Ti
And its awesome !

It went from hitting almost 90C to max 37-40C on full load.
And of course... no noise !
Will wait to my b-day on march to water cool the 2nd one.

About cooling the memory
When i took off the Gigabyte Windforce cooling i noticed the rams are not cooled at all.
The heatsink don't even touch them.

So i attached Enzotech Ramsinks to 6 of the memory chips
Had to leave 2 of them w\o because the fittings is right above them.
