post #5301 of 11740
OK now I has a question. +REP to anyone who can confirm if it works or will work. I have the Gigabyte Radeon 7970 3gb video card. I am thinking of getting a Corsair H80i (I am NOT ready to do a custom loop) Now I know it will need a heatsink for the chips and I was thinking of THIS. Would it be possible to fit the the H80i into the opening for the heatsink? Again I DO NOT want to do a custom loop just yet biggrin.gif

as another option, doesn't Dwood offer personalised brackets for H80i to mount on GPU?

edit: HERE get a nice fan for mem cooling, and also a cool personalized back plate

Yes good call BUT the brackets seem to be too big with the side panels. I could be wrong but I will ask him.
BTW.. I already got a backplate from him as well which is in my build log thumb.gif

could be, but if it doesn't I think the aesthetics would be nicer than a large silver heatsink in your build

I don't think the hoses on the H80i are of a large enough diameter to fit onto that heat sync. You could always change that though and modify the hoses, but you would lose some of the fluid within the closed loop system, and would need a way to refill it. You could for all intensive purposes, create a custom open loop system with new hoses/clamps, and that heat sync, while still using the H80i radiator.

I am planning on having an H100 on my CPU, and eventually doing the "Red Mod" to my GPU with an H80. Maybe if I'm daring enough, I could modify the hoses, and create a custom loop with both of the radiators, since they have pumps and reservoirs built into the heat sync themself... then i would just need a way to refill the system, and close the loop again.

Well I considered that as well and if you look, the Swiftech MCW82 will fit in there and it looks almost as the same size as the block for the h80i. I would need to use a bracket and shim just to make the posiitive connection and the one area is shallow enough for the hoses. If not that can be cut off. The thing I do not want to do is modify the whole heatsink just to make it fit. GRRR the last thing I want is a custom loop but its starting to look better and better.... Nah I need to leave well enough alone biggrin.gif

If you can get it to work if you do it, let me know! I know there is a How to on OCN but I am not sure if its a smart move to make

Yeah, that block is pretty nice... HOWEVER, it seems like it is just a water block... the H80 has the pump built into the block. If you use that water block, the water will just be stale, it won't have a pump to move the water, which means you would have to integrate a pump into the system either way. Once I actually get my cooling stuff, then I'll look into making a custom system of my own, using those things.
