No, you didn't misread: they're heavy!

But the original cooler is only about 300g lighter anyway.

Just complementing the info here:

Stress Test Temperatures

Detailed config.:
Cores' freq.: 832MHz
Mems' freq.: 2100MHz
(MSI Lightning standard frequencies, as you guys know redface.gif)

Core voltage: 1.001V (one of them runs at 0.983V thumbsupsmiley.png, according to GPUZ, but the other runs at 1.001V)
Mem. voltage: 1.021V (increased by 20mV to improve memory stability at stock on GPU2 after observing slight purple flickering on 3dMark11 - change made when the cards were air-cooled).

Loop config.:
120rad fan at 1260rpm
360rad fans at 1080rpm

120mm intake fan (bottom of the case) at 1760rpm

Pump at speed level 2.5 of 5.

Ambient temperature steady at 26C.
Internal case temps during testing maxed at 30.5C (measured at the main case chamber in two points - back and front, 2 cm to the right of the 120mm rad and 5 cm under the 360mm rad).

Maximum observed temperatures:

GPU 1:
  • Core:_____ 48C
  • Memory: __ 37C
  • VRMs: ____ 37C

GPU 2:
  • Core: _____ 47C
  • Memory: __ 37C
  • VRMs: ____ 36C


Looking good! biggrin.gif

Are there any sites in the U.S. that sells these blocks? I've never tried ordering anything from Taiwan. Yet, anyways.

I don't know.
You could try asking the people in Bitspower-Taiwan if they have some US shop selling the block.

They (bitspower) are trustworthy but, buying it from an US shop would surely make it cheaper! biggrin.gif
