So I finally got my computer put back together after instaling my HK universal block on my Sapphire 7870 XT and got some pics. Temps are pretty awesome btw, I dont have any pics of temps yet but after running Uningine for a couple hours on max settings and an overclock of 1225/1650 the highest the core temp got was 50 degrees but was normally about 47-48 and the max temps on the VRMs was 63. Idle temps stay around 27-28. I have copper heatsinks on all memory and VRMs and that Titan vga cooler thing under it for the memory/VRM cooling. CPU and GPU are being cooled with a Alphacool NexXxos XT45 420mm up top and a XSPC AX240 240mm on the bottom both in push/pull if anyone is interested.
Anyway, very happy with my HK block and definitly do not regret!
Here are a few pics. (sorry they are so bad, took them with my Galaxy Nexus with crappy light)
Here is a before pic of the original card still in rig but loop broken down:
the HK box
The GPU block: (I love this thing!)
No turning back now!
All stripped and Neked
And back in the loop (still have some cleaning up to do in the case )
Again, sorry for the horrible pics, believe it or not I do not even own a camera so I just use my phone. Maybe someday I'll buy a camera.
Anyway, there it is. I definitly dont regret the purchase even though I origianly wanted a full cover block I am very happy with performance of this universal and my temps (although I am kind of overkill on the rads ) and will be more than happy to bring this block to my next card as well!
