I live in Germany and we dont have newegg here :/ Anyways thanks SkateZilla!
I could spend like 350€ for it.... Im thinking if its worth buying a full pcb, because as I know(Im new to water ooling) it won't fit any other cards when I update after 2 years, want it? Hows about the normal gpu blocks? Any disadvantages?(As they would fit oher cards and also the gigabyte version which I think would prefer as it overclock better than sapphire I think).

Ill give you rep when Im back on my pc...

I think GPU core only cooling + heatsinks is good especially kuz u can mount it onto another gpu without much issue. The Full blocks I didn't see much benifit except... they look 100x better.

Then again my only "GPU" block was make-shifting a corsair H40/H60 portion and rewiring the rest and my only full block was for the 6970. Aesthetically I rather have a full block though, and if I watercool I'll aim for full blocks only as a personal preference. Core blocks are good performers and heatinks for the vram is more than enough iirc

About the waterblock you can buy a GPU only block like Swiftech MWC82-7900. sonda5 bought this at first and used the stock VRM heatsinks and let a 120mm case fan blow cool air from the side of the cabinet. was able to keep very good VRM temps.

I'm selling my 7970 for $400+ shipping, it will come with a Dwood backplate, a DD water block, the reference cooler, and a broken DD water block (missing mounting hole, can be pressed against the chip to render it working), but the 7970 is missing a capacitor, ill provide the info for the cap. For details or if you are interested, please PM me

Intriguing.... Intriguing enough to warrant a hypothesis.

The coil whine from the card (if there was no coil whine it must have been of such a high pitch that it was inaudible, obviously) must have resonated with the electrical frequency within the capacitor which, when stimulated by large thumps from explosions within FPS games caused small pockets of true vacuum to appear within the capacitor, allowing the quantum foam of raw space to fluctuate randomly, opening a small void from which random pulses of gravitational waves of varying strength would issue forth. One of these stripped the mounting hole in the water block by warping the screw, and the final one was strong enough to collapse the capacitor in upon itself, to the approximate size of a dessicated dust mite. Summatically, it fell to the bottom of the case and was brushed out with the rest of the dust.

It's much more interesting to believe this than it is to go through your posts via your profile and find out what really happened. biggrin.gif

Anyone know of a good brand 7970 that a accelero xtreme 7970 will fit on, and that can overvolt? I've been through asus and now visiontek that will not allow me to overvolt and I don't want to waste more time and money. Thanks in adavnce
