Still possible to get a Koolance GPU waterblock for a GTX480?

post #1 of 7

I'm wanting to watercool my 480's, but I cant seem to find the blocks im looking for. I want the ones made by koolance, but it appears they have been deactivated. Anyone know where I can find them? Thanks

Sometimes they have parts but did not post on their web for some reasons.

Just got an email back. They said they were out for good and that the only way they will have any is if a customer returns one. So I'm out of luck. What do you guys think of Universal GPU blocks? I'm reading good things about using a swiftech MCW60, and the stock fan and underplate to cool the VRM's and memory. Would a rasa XSPC 240 cool both these cards adequately if I don't add my CPU to the loop? I'm completely ok with load temps up to 70C and im wanting to get 800mhz core on both cards. (After I upgrade my PSU of course lol)

Universal block will perform just as good as a fullblock. Difference is you have to cool the memory chips and VRM with heatsinks.

 

A 240 will, for 2 GPUs but consider a 360 for more radiator surface and with low RPM fans = quiet.

So you don't think the stock heatsink covering the card is adequate? http://www.overclock.net/t/712672/eastys-road-to-nv-gtx-480-sli-water-cooled/80 This guy ran his that way, but I'm not sure if they are still operational though tongue.gif I would love to get a 360, but it wont fit in my coolermaster advanced 690 II case frown.gif

I have seen people add the heatsinks on that plate because there's no fan to cool the plate, unless you can use the original fan and shroud to cool the plate. I would add the heatsinks nonetheless, 480 can run very hot on the VRM due to the power draw.

 

Well if there's space limitation, get a thicker 240 with more radiator surface and adjust the fan speed.
