@derpinheimer im confused on what you are trying to do..
3 x 180 rad... do you have a link?
and FT02 ? im not sure what that is..

im not sure what card you are trying to cool .. as there are many things going on in here.. ;>

btw i hope i didnt sound bossy .. im just a pion like everyone else.. I am not an op.. just trying to help if i can..

good luck with the mod either way as im always interested in new ideas..

This is the radiator: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/14196/ex-rad-287/Magicool_Extreme_Triple_180mm_x_35mm_Slim_Radiator_MC-RADI180X3.html#blank
Case is Silverstone FT-02. Not the best for watercooling

Its not like I have to have that radiator, but its huge and fits in the FT-02 beautifully.. after some cutting. And it gets noise isolation if I keep it in the case rather than buying a different rad and putting it out the back as I see people do a lot..

But thats for another time..

Its a 7950 Vapor-X, custom PCB so it wouldnt fit regular waterblocks. I'm guessing I can just buy a CPU waterblock and do "the red mod" and get it to fit, rather than buying a new full cover waterblock each time I replace the card?

And no you dont sound bossy smile.gif Thanks.

@derpinheimer is it this one.. VTX3D Radeon HD 7950 X-Edition 3GB GDDR5 (VX7950 3GBD5-2DHX) either way here is a possible option.. but pay attention to the number on the pcb right above the pcie slot gold tabs..
http://www.swiftech.com/HD7900-HSF.aspx then you can use a swiftech gpu block or possibly a square pump for the mod.. i think someone did it.. but cant be certain..


if this works it would be a nice mod i used the 6900 series on my 6950's
if i didnt have the lightning i would be getting one of these..

just looking for options.. for ya.. btw i ordered a h100i today and totally forgot to check out the swiftech argh.. i ordered it quick ship too so its already out the door.. maybe if i ever upgrade again.. ill get to check out the swiftech.. that pump is supposed to be awesome.

Its actually this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202003

Which unfortunately isnt listed on the compatibility there.

However I found this: http://www.coolingconfigurator.com/step1_complist?gpu_gpus=848

So what is the advantage of buying one of those blocks over a CPU waterblock like those included in closed loop coolers? Ease of installation?

Otherwise I hope compatibility in the future is the same or better? I would just hate to buy a waterblock and have it be incompatible on my next GPU.

Thanks again.

BTW, I probably wont be getting to doing this for awhile as I'm in the middle of moving [houses].

Do you use the same method for mounting the 620 on AMD cards as NVidia cards ?
post #977 of 3006
Yea it's the same mounting system just diff holes for the screws.
Some cards need a shim some dont

Temps were awful, and I'm not sure why. I had these same coolers installed on my 580's before I sold them (the GPUs) and they worked perfectly. I also have one hooked up to a GTX 470 in my other PC and it works well too. These 7970's are my first ATI cards and I haven't been very impressed with them. They overheat, artifact, and crash on air and I couldn't even get through one run of Furmark successfully on water without my whole PC shutting down. Any suggestions as to what I might be doing wrong?
