Cost to water-cool three high-end GPUs (780 or 7970) - Page 2

post #11 of 21
Dude, it's more like 800+ depending on how you trim it out. Go for the good stuff and its over 800. You could spend 200 bucks just on fittings. You're gonna need at least a 480, more like 480+120 rad, 240 rad for your cpu, add pump or pumps, easily over 1000.

200 just on fittings?! Fittings as in barbs or compression.. I mean maybe compression.. but I mean its a luxury.. But with his rid and the money dumped into already.. yeah I would go all the e-peenie way!

I mean we really should ask him what hes got left to spend after all those cards lol..

But i see your point for 800 on the cheap and over a grand for the good stuff.. pretty much what I said not counting shipping and such

You could also save some money by getting universal blocks. You can get 3 universal blocks for the price of one full cover block and you can use it with next gen cards also.

You're not serious are you? The cards alone are $1700+.

Just because you spend a lot of money on the cards, doesn't mean you have to spend the same for nice blocks. The same goes with other computer hardware.

While I do own a lot of nice things, that does not mean I spend top dollar on them. I'm a bargain shopper by night. thumb.gif

Would you buy a Ferrari and put on Cooper Tires for replacement when the time came?

thanks!

depending on how much you want from your cards, if you dont want anything extreem I would suggest you look under the nVidia cooling section for the GTX480 / GTX580 Closed Loop H70 or Antec H20 mods. many nvidia users are doing it, Just get a few of Crosair H70's or Antec Kuhler 620's and mod them to fit your GPU. Its a Cheap and hassle free solution and GPU's that would load at near 90c - 100c would now load at 50c - 60c. Nothing like a custom loop with fullcover blocks but sure hella competitive for the price and gets the job done if you are on a budget and have limited knowledge / skills on the subject. just my two cents wink.gif
