Would my EK GTS250 block fit a GTX460?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Okay sorry if this is a stupid question but I was about to upgrade my old GTS 250 to a newer GTX 460 oc edition. I have the 250 currently water cooled with a simple EK plexi which looks pretty similair to this one:
Attachment 238027

I bought this block a while back from Ebay so I am unsure of the exact model number.

Looking at the blocks for sale for the 460 they seem not too different?
The question is would this fit as I really dont want to have to split my loop to fit a new block as it took days last time to get the air out of it.

I know it probably wont but thought I would check if anyone knew before I buy a new block.
Thanks

You would just have to find a 460 compatiable block on the internet, check the hole spacings on it and your block, and if they match then hey presto!!

Actually No sorry, it would not work. the 250 has hole spacings of 53mmx53mm vs the 460's 51mmx61mm. Sorry.
