backside waterblock?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
okay so i put a temp probe on the back of my PCB above the VRM section on my GTX 580 (heavily OCed) and the probe just sitting there read about a 65C temp which is 20C hotter than my GPU is running and if i run with my ambients too high i will experience throttling on my GPU so my question is are there any backside water blocks out there for the GTX 580 reference card to aid in cooling the VRM section.

i spent a lot of time searching for one and couldn't find one anyone who can find anything that is for the 580 the help is much appreciated

honestly, i wouldn't want the heat dump in my look if anything i'd grab some low profile vram heatsinks and some thermal tape and stick them to the back side maybe put a small can blowing air across the card(s)

then again i like the idea of universal waterblocks more than full coverage blocks, you might be able to have someone make a block for you

yeah i can make the block myself i just don't have a backup GPU that i can take the 580 out and mess with getting the block to fit right (a 2-3 day process for me) and i like the full coverage blocks less noise and less maintnance.
