EVGA GTX 680 water block compabibility - Page 5

post #41 of 100
Not sure with other GTX 680 4 Gb cards but with EVGA, the current 680 waterblocks doesn't fit. I got the 4 Gb EVGA version of the card 1st & tried to install my Heatkiller waterblock but those big capacitors close to the GPU of the card make the card incompatible with current 680 waterblocks (Heatkiller, EK, etc.). I ended up returning the card to Tigerdirect less than 2 hours after I've purchased it.

I was considering getting a Zotac 680 4 Gb but Tigerdirect doesn't have it. I ended up getting the 2 GB EVGA SC version. If you really want the 4 Gb version, check the one made by Zotac. Looks like it's a reference one. I saw a picture of it & it looks like the PCB doesn't have those big capacitors found on EVGA cards.

If you just gonna be using a single monitor for gaming then you don't really need the 4 Gb version. The 2 Gb version is enough. This card is so powerful even if you use more than 1 monitor with a 2 Gb version I think you still should be OK with most current games.

Based off of pictures and estimates of hole distances, it looks like at least the MSI 4GB GTX 680 should work with water blocks.

Might have to check closely cuz the MSI card is about 1/2" longer than the EVGA reference card.

Good point. Anyhow, I would submit a compatibility inquiry form on the CoolingConfigurator website.

You guys should consider universal blocks, EK and Heatkiller both make them that work with a bridge now. This way you won't need to waste money on GPU waterblocks anymore and all they do is use a backplate to cool the memory on a 4GB card, copper heatsinks would be better even though I used the backplate with the universal blocks.
It's over a 120 bucks extra a card to put full blocks on them, last 12 cards I bought were full blocks and I was lucky to get $50 shipped when I sold them.

What EVGA 4Gb card. Was it the Classified, FTW or just the regular 4Gb? Because I was under the impression that the regular 4Gb was compatible with the 680 waterblocks.

Just curious as I am considering getting a pair with Heatkiller or Koolance blocks.

I just finished putting the XSPC Razor 680 block on my 4GB eVGA 680. (model 04G-P4-2686-KR) It fit just fine, even with the eVGA backplate. The only problem is the screws XSPC provided don't all fit through the backplate holes, so I had to improvise with 2 of the screws until I can get new ones.

Here's the backplate:


And here's the two temporary screws: (the backplate holes are counter-sunk, so I either need screws about 0.25cm longer, or ones with smaller heads.

Look at Page 2, 3, and 4 of this thread where we talk about replacement screws for the backplate.

I think the one I did looks a lot better. The screws were made to fit & I did put screws in all the screw holes. It looks so clean. With the screws hard to find, looks like I'll be the only one doing this mod.biggrin.gif
