Want to Water or Liquid Cool my EVGA GTX 570SC Questions

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am new to water/liquid cooling. I currently have a Antec Kühler H20 920 Liquid CPU Cooling System, but I now want to add a water or liquid cooler to my EVGA GTX 570SC. The main reason why is when I play SWTOR, it hits very high temps reaching into the low 80c with the stock fan blowing at 100%. For some reason this game make my GPU run to hot I believe. I have never set up a water or liquid cooler system before for a GPU, so I am not sure what are all the parts needed to do so. I was leaning towards the cooling Block systems, but again would be happy with other suggestions as well. If I could get links to all the parts needed so I dont miss anything, and what I should expect as far as temperatures after I make the changes I would really appreciate it.


The tower I am using is a Corsair Special Edition Graphite Series 600T

take a look at this thread. http://www.overclock.net/t/1237652/gtx-580-antec-kuhler-620-build-log dwood and a few others I think are making custom brackets to attach a closed loop cooler such as your antec 920 to gpus. I myself have ordered 2 for my 580's. His price is very reasonable and lots of people here are having a lot of success with this mod. It's much cheaper than full water cooling and requires no maintenance.

he has brackets for other gpus, of course, not just the 580 as shown in the thread. he includes all the mounting hardware as well and there are even a few videos out now I believe walking you through the install. I'm expecting about a 30-35 degree temp drop.

Interesting Daniel... The only thing is I am a nut for looks, and maybe wanted something a little cleaner, and with lights. You did bring up a good point though about maintenance which I didn't take into consideration. Is there a lot of maintenance on water or liquid systems?

The recommended routine is to clean it once every 6 months, but it's possible to go longer without.
