MSI 660 Ti Water Cooling Question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

Having not found a full block for my card, I'm going the universal block route. Does the MSI 660 Ti PE card's Twin Frozr cooler only cool the actual GPU?

Looking at this picture (http://cache.futurelooks.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/MSI-GTX-660-Ti-PE-4.jpg) I thought so. Does this mean I wouldn't have to worry about cooling the VRMs or RAM? Or maybe just if I overclocked it?

Let me know what you think, thanks!

It seems you only need a universal block, nothing else wink.gif

There's no contact between the heatsink and VRM's/memory so you'll be fine with a universal block thumb.gif
