GTX 650 ti Water Block (Stubby)

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hi all,
I am actually brand spanking new to WC. I've always wanted to, but never got around to doing, but now I am definitely looking into it.
My Profile Rig is the current setup.
What I'm looking for right now is a full cover block for the 650 ti, but the short card. I came across the other thread of the 550, 560, 650; but no one stated anything concrete. i searched gahoogle and found nothing.
Only thing I've seen is: this
and this
Since this would be my first WC build im trying to make it kind of simple and yet good "enough." Thus a whole block would be easy. tongue.gif
Thanks in advance to Every and Anyone.
(I don't need to know a 660 has one or a 7870 has one. F*ck off. Don't waste anybody's time.)

As far as I know, no one makes blocks for 650's or 650 ti's. I am pretty sure you would have to end up going with the universal block, and have fans blowing air over the other components not in direct contact with the block to keep them cool. Good luck.

If the card has the same mount (same width between the screwholes) as a 660 or 660 Ti, then a different mount would work.
If that and/or Addiction's suggestions doesn't work, then I guess you are out of luck.

Why are you watercooling a 650 TI in the first place when you have a C2D. I would save that money and upgrade that bottleneck first unless you are overhauling the whole system then to answer your question there isn't a full cover waterblock and probably won't be for that low-mid end card. You can either get a custom bracket made for a CLC system. You also stated that you wanted to get your feet wet with your first WC build, I would get a universal block and a Raystorm rs 360 kit and since none of the universal blocks "officially" support that specific card, I would contact EK, XSPC and other manufactures to ask them if it will fit on your card since they may have not updated their compatibility list yet.

I agree, I see no point in water cooling that. Using the extra $100 to upgrade your GPU would be the only choice I would ever make, it just doesn't make sense.

I understand the performance of the 650ti and everything but i just bought this card, i did have a budget. (strict) so that is what it had to be. i mean yea, i would love to have some 7970, or 690, but hey.

anyway, the mobo+cpu will be overhauled when i can save up the money. had been hard with Christmas. and so that is why im looking into the gfx card atm. i took a look at the places you showed chemist. the 660's are like an average card length, as the 650ti is only as long as the pci-e slot. so that would be a no go on the FC block's. i did send a proposal to both companys just now.
i do not understand what you mean/refer to as a "CLC system" closed loop c..?

@addiction; im trying to avoid leaving the vram to air cooled. if it had to be ghetto-ed i would try some other "universal" coolers on the vram, but only after i atleast tried to make my own block.

depending on what the cost will be from the proposal's i might just copy EK's 660 flow design and just tune the block for the 650ti. then sell the prints to a company? LOL. Big dreams for a small card.

i understand your point marodox, but i was just looking at ghetto-ing this WC project. i dont need the best. but for the blocks, i would love for them to be spot on and correct fits. and what i mean is correct block for the gfx and cpu then rad's and pumps and tube is whatev. i was thinking two pumps in case one fails but i know that might add to a restrictive system :/

EDIT: i was going to try and contact Nvidia and/or EVGA to see if they could just release me the dimension specs. make things a lot easier. and i believe the mounting holes are 60mm diag and 43mm straight line.

You could try the Accelero Hybrid but it doesn't list the 650 ti on it. The previous 550ti is longer than the 650 but you may be able to jerry rig the acclero on there but unfortunately I don't know.

I too have a 650ti and have thought of watercooling it just for fun.

edit: While compairing the 660ti and the 650ti they seem like they are similar, but may not acutally work in terms of the 660ti block on a 650ti.

Again, there is literally no point in water cooling this. If you are dealing with things that are as cheap and under powered as a 650ti and are considering watercooling, you are severely mismanaging your budget. That is why you are having a hard time finding a block, because it makes zero sense to watercool this card.

biggrin.gif is all i can say. lol. mismanaged may be incorrect. I have under glow on my car. go figure.
Anyway, EK said No, and no future plans, they did give me their list of universal "fits".
@ejohnson; i have looked at that too, but i have realized it seems backwards between the two cards. as i mean the powering is on the left for the 650ti and the 660 is on the right.
I did spend most of today looking at maybe seeing if it would be possible to upgrade to a 660ti, but i got lazy and tired from all the reading. im going to inquiry with TD tomorrow and see if they might allow me to return the 650 and get a 660ti. im leaning towards the DCII. :/
Back to thread, Ejohnson, i was saying of coping the design of the 660 FC block as how most EK has fins over the GPU and just flow over the vram.
i just sent an email to EVGA requesting like dimensions on 02G-P4-3653-KR card. im hoping then can give me something good. atleast mounting hole distance and GPU size.
@ahumanbeing; that seems like a good idea. i didnt bother to check the mounts on it though. but still, want the vram WC too.
@Maradox; if i do get a 660ti, still gonna throw a Block on the beez-e too. xD Can't stop me. hahaha. and IMHO a 650ti isnt underpowered especially my ssc (can get a 40% OC increase) i believe it to be more of a retarded 660. :/ very retarded.
i believe more of not finding a block as anyone that gets a 650ti either spent all their money on the card or people just get the ssc and call it a day. b.c people who want good would get a good card and WC that. but meh. to each their own?

But what im really curious about, is how thick should i be looking at for the block? i mean from bottom of the GPU square to the top of the fins? i dont have money to buy a 660 FC and inspect. and since im new to WC, i dont know the average, or science. and i dont know which materiel to use. nickel? copper? etc?
if all else fails can try this

Proposed FC: Copper block, GPU touch, 4 or 5 vram Chip touch, 2mm height/drop difference from block to GPU/Vram, 660 FC design, ~7mm thick copper (without 2mm difference((9mm total))), ~5mm acrylic top, outter edge rubber ring, two holes, 12-16screws top side, copper studs for 4 mounting location (using original screws, and add pvc washers. anything else?
