[MT] EVGA GTX 680 Waterblock, EVGA also made their own fittings - Page 8

post #71 of 80
The bridge system looks very similar to that of the HK system. Even the blocks have the detachable piece where the ports are located.

I am willing to bet large amounts of money that we won't see the GK110 until much, much later this year. It's definitely NOT going to be released this summer.

Wasn't the rumor late August? Most likely November if anything. November is the king of all the months for retail.

I may have just found the wrong benchmarks, but from what I saw, they worked better than many of the self-instal full blocks. Point a WC noob in the right direction.
Also, the Swiftech bridge looks completely different... There is a dimple in the bottom edge and the EVGA has no dimple. Check and mate. thumb.gif


Restriction is additive. In a system  that has 2 or more of these HC waterblocks, it will use up your head pressure and slow down your water flow.

It's a easy fix, you just upgrade your water pump to something a little more beefy:


310

This one is rated at 150,000 gallons per second and a 24,987,112 feet of head pressure. biggrin.gif

I've had great success with the DDC 3.2 powering through multiple rads and blocks thumb.gif.

Isn't this what they said about the GTX 680 and the 79XX?

So initially, it wont make THAT much of a difference? My first impression would be that restriction it allows the water to path better and move well through the needed area. I understand that it can add up, but what kind of scaling are we talking?
What I'm asking is, if I just planned on doing SLIx2, would it be a problem? I would not be worried about insane overclocks, just to allow the card to run cool and quite. (with SOME OC headroom) I would have no need for more than 2 high-end cards anyways. Not a e-peen kind of person. (at least not to the point that I would sacrofice food money)

I don't know what your system looks like. If you have lots of sharp turns or bends in your loop, it can further increase restrictions. HC waterblocks usually perform very well. It is just restrictive. And for 2-way SLI, I think you would be fine anyways under your conditions

 

For less money, (110-115s per block) you can do it yourself for about the same performance. EVGA allows owners to modify their cards and not void warranty.

Yes, that I understand, but I do like the EVGA brand. I know, favoritism is bad, but I would like to have a EVGA branded WB. Like I said, the temps seem very good from all I've seen. If I decided to buy a high end pump, would that easily make up for the restriction? I don't even know were to start with pumps. The rest I have seen enough to know what I'm doing. (thick rads > push-pull thin rad, layout is very important, Everyone seems to love silent tycoon fans.. blah blah blah)
