Hi,

So I have a Galaxy GTX 670 GC 4GB card, and apparently it does not use the stock pcb or a 680 pcb but some custom pcb. After hours and hours of googling I can't find any full cover solutions, so I am faced with 2 options:

1) Use a universal option

or

2) RMA the card and get a card that can use a full cover waterblock.

I'm leaning towards the universal solution as the RMA would probably cost me a hefty restock fee and be quite the PITA (plsu why waste the cash if a universal could work, right?). The issue is I don't fully understand how to go about cooling the vram, nor do I know if there is anything else I need to worry about cooling. Do I even need to cool the vram, I've read several posts where people have not, but I'm not too sure if that is a safe idea, suggestions? Let's say I did choose the universal route, any suggestions for blocks? I'm looking at the EK-VGA Supremacy, the Swiftech MCW82, and the Watercool Heatkiller Core LT.
Any and all help is welcome and thanks for your time!
