Heatkiller X3 GPU 7970 Block w/ Heatkiller Backplate. EK Single Bracket on the side.
Idle temps: 25c (1c above Room Temp)
Load Temps: 32c (5 full loops of Heaven benchmark)
700
Extremely pleased with the outcome. I give the Heatkillers 10/10 in quality and functionality. Temperature in the room after hours of gaming is easily 10F+ cooler.

Those are good temps. What is your room temperature?

So i've decided to get water cooling for my GPU, what exactly do i need ? and how much probably would it cost ?
Thanks

I just built mine and I spent around 700-$800. Some of the parts I probably could have trimmed some of the cost but you arent going to get a CPU, 2GPU build for under $500

Right now its a bit cooler 23.33c, earlier with the sun coming in my room it was 25c. AC is on. 6 Degree difference on a fully loaded GPUs going for over 15 minutes is pretty good to me biggrin.gif

Anticipate 40c full load for hours, can't wait to get into this afternoon. Installing these 12.4betas now.

5 full loops of Heaven Benchmark is about 20~25 minutes.

[EDIT]
Managed to enable voltage control and proper clock reading. I haven't stayed up with the 7970 overclocking wise because I have been on air, and just needed time to put on blocks.

Software I Used:
Using the latest Afterburner 2.2.0 Beta 15, 12.4 Beta Catalyst, 12.2 Cap1

Clean uninstall using AtiMan. Then Install of your choice of drivers and CAP profile.

Downloaded the missing atipdl64 / atipdlxx.dll, but them in the MSI Afterburner folder.
485
Source: http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=359671

Edited the Config:
188

Launched Afterburner, edited these settings, the new setting that worked for me was enabling Kernel mode.
700

Edit Afterburner's shortcut and change Target line:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\MSI Afterburner\MSIAfterburner.exe" /XCL

Start Afterburner one time (it may pop up with a window asking you to reboot) and it will not start. Go back in, delete the /XCL part. Reboot machine now.

End Result:

RagingCain, you should disable ULPS so your 2nd card doesn't shut off and you will see the temps in AB for both cards all the time. You will have better luck overclocking them also. What do you mean unlock voltage control? You should be able to control volts without any "unlocking" with AB.

Very nice looking tho, I was tempted to get those but went with the EK's instead as I already have the EK cpu block.

I been changing drivers left and right, I keep forgetting to disable ULPS, I appreciate you reminding me, but look up at my previous post its been edited.

Voltage control was locked due to low level access being unchecked for me. Infact, I was not used to seeing that, must have overlooked it 6 or 7 times before I gave it a try and figured it out. Happens when you take a few months off from benchmarking/overclocking.

Cool. Those are the first things checked every time I install AB. Clock away now bud, good luck.

I already got H100 for the CPU, stable at 4.8 with i5 2500k so i'm cool with it
I only need water cooling for the GPU
anyway, can you please tell me where can i buy it from Amazon, or any other online stores ?

Mine are running @ 42-44 full load. I just went home from lunch and had them folding all morning (7 hours) and they highest they went was 45C. I also have all my windows open and it's 85F out right now... doh. I've been trying to not turn the AC on, sucks money out of my wallet worse than my bad habit of buying PC stuff.
