Reference GTX 670 water blocks are going to be hillarious - Page 2

post #11 of 234
The biggest issue of compatability as far as I'm concerned is a) how close the GPU is to the end of the card and b) how close the GPU is to the PCIE power connectors. The design as it stands is more trouble than it's worth for me... an additional 1-1.5" of length with more spread out / more robust circuitry would have been much preferred. I guess I'll wait to see what non-reference solutions appear.

I guess we'll be seeing a lot of EK blocks sort of like this.... (from an old EK agp video card, but oddly its the same size as a 670)

Hideous indeed. Ironically this came from the EK website, in their "about us" section. I hope blocks for the 670 are going to be much better than this, although at this size the blocks should be sub $100.

See, they claim that but that's a ton of weight on a gpu of that size, but I'd bet they'll start recommending the use of back-plates once one of those snaps a 670 in half. But I'd assume it would work if frozen is claiming it does. But lets be honest here, those usual 680 water blocks are just no fun for a card of this size.

It works for the 670's that are using the 680 PCB like the windwforce or the zotac. However, it will not work on a reference 670 PCB.

would this one be able to handle the waterblock? http://www.evga.com/products/moreInfo.asp?pn=04G-P4-2673-KR&family=GeForce%20600%20Series%20Family&sw=

this is the one i plan on getting real soon

At a glance that looks like that is the reference 670 PCB. EK and a few other manufacturers are making waterblocks for the reference 670 design, but they are not out yet. I would imagine they will be out in a week or two though

edit: here is the 670 that I am getting that will be paired with the 680 waterblock you linked. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125423. This one works because it shares the same PCB as what a 680 uses.

This guide is pretty helpful to determining waterblock compatibly.

This is the main reason I bought the 670 for compact size. I saw on PerformancePCs website that they say that a normal eK GTX 680 card with fit on this GTX 670 card? I will be doing a Mitx build in the coming weeks with the following below
Intel 3570k
ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe
G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 8GB 2400MHz
LIAN LI PC-Q18B Mini ITX case
EVGA GTX 670 SuperClocked
Going to watercool both CPU and GPU....
