You baking there? lmao! tongue.gif

Try heating some tacos over the heatsink or something...could replace a microwave. Or use a heatgun to cook stuff.

If you are planning on a waterblock for the 79xx series you may want to do yourself a favor and take a look HERE. Very good information.

Especially since there are not many reviews for 7xxx waterblocks.

Yes especially for 7950's. Any links to reviews for 7950's?

Not that I have come across. frown.gif

I know that the Heatkiller score will reflect on the 7950 as well since it fits both cards. I cant speak for the others though. In that review the heatkiller is $94... seems the price has gone up a bit as now its 119. FrozenCPU still has the full copper without nickel plating but they are out of stock. Sidewinder has them but only the nickel plated.

so the pump-out effect with regular tim will still keep my temps below pre-delidded temps right?

it won't make me worse off?

What is the best style? Nickel, copper, or just black? Does it matter? I want to get black, but would that affect anything?

I wanted to keep nickel out of my loop but ended up getting the Koolance 380i which is nickel plated. Some have claimed that many nickel plated blocks corrode when mixed with other metals. I dont have any supporting evidence though. At first I was worried about it but then I kept running across users who claimed the majority of nickel plating problems were mostly due to chipping and not corrosion, so it seemed like the two were just getting mixed in together.

Black would look sick indeed. I dont really think you can go wrong either way. Nickel plating can crack and chip, you need to be more careful with it. Other than that I dont really think you can go wrong. Maybe clean out your loop and blocks once or twice a year to be on the safe side.

My loop contains only nickel and copper. No brass core rads, no aluminum.

Ok thanks for the help. Then I will get black EK VGA and CPU blocks. I am finally happy with my build so I can start buying watercooling stuff slowly as I get the money.
