WC for 2x Palit GTX 680 (4GB)

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hey Community,

I planned to buy 2x palit GTX 680 with 4 gigs of ram. I already have a wc system
in my market basket and i want to know which wc i should choose for the SLI.
(Am i able to remove the fans + case there?)

(For sure you can suggest better graphic cards.. but the Performance of this One is the best)

Alphacool NexXxos 360mm
Koolance 380i
EK Fit for R4E
Alphacool Dual Bay with 2 pumps (one is in loop with the rad and the other one with cpu and mobo)
XSPC tubes (blue) and fittings


Thank you! smile.gif

Seems to be a custom PCB. That means reference waterblocks might not fit. EKWB has a nice database that can help you find a WB that will fit. You will be able to remove the fans and heatsink.

Personally, I'd go woth a couple of Asus 680 DCii's as they use non reference PCB's (unlike Palit) that have much better VRM's. The asus cards clock fantastically.

You also can get water blocks for them made by EK which I will also strongly recommend!

The EK block are fantastic for SLI setups as they offer the Link-Bridge system that makes it super easy to install and is leak free!

Edit - the palit 680 actually does use a custom PCB. But you cannot get full cover blocks for it.

AW: WC for 2x Palit GTX 680 (4GB)

http://www.mindfactory.de/product_info.php/info/p824144_4096MB-Asus-GeForce-GTX-680-DirectCU-II-Game-Bundle-Aktiv-PCIe-3-0-x16--Retail-.html

They say in the technical details that the asus just needs 1x 6pin connectors.. All the others use 6+8 or 8+8.. isnt that worse or am i a dumbass?

And if im using the configurator of ekwb they show me full Cover Blocks for it.. o:

Edit: nvm.. ill get a couple of this ones. Wrong information.
Edit2: ekwb only have this for the 670 but the configurator says it works for the 680 too..?


Thanks.

EK do not guarantee that their water block fits as it hasn't been tested. The chances are that it will not and they won't.

The Asus cards use a 6+8 btw. They also come with backplates tongue.gif

I've had both Asus and Palit 670's. If the 680's similar, the asus is way better smile.gif
