Good Universal GPU Waterblock Advice.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm wondering if anybody can recommend a good universal WC block for this card, Gigabyte 5870 SOC (GV-R587SO-1GD). I realize there are no full coverage or blocks specific to this particular card, so my intention is to go with a universal block. With all the options out there, I'm just a little overwhelmed with what's available. The problem with this is that even as a nonreference design, the GV-R587SO-1GD is even a nonreference nonreference design, Gigabyte developed their own ICB for this GPU.

I've also been looking at the options available for vram and mosfet coverage (air cooled obviously) and, even though mine have no heatsinks originally, all I'm finding are the copper stick on ones, not an option I'm thrilled with. The Swiftech "unisink" isn't an option (ref design only currently) unless they have a nonref design that I am able to use.

Anybody?

EDIT - So far I've got it narrowed down to XSPC & EK universal gpu waterblocks. Any further advice/recommendations/ideas would be greatly welcomed.

I am also in this dilemma of choosing a future proof universal block but the future seems a bit blurry atm...
XSPC RASA gpu so far supported all forms of mounting holes like GTX460/560 , 570/580 & all AMD versions..... but in 7950 and 7970 shares a different story. On the other hand EK blocks performs better than XSPC but the support of mounting holes is limited to 570/580 and all AMD versions. For GTX 460 and 7970/7950 u hav to buy different mounting bracket. As I'm from Bangladesh managing these stuffs is very difficult here...
and costs me double the amount.... wackosmiley.gif
