Almost every watercooling company makes block for non-reference cards. Look on EK's cooling configurator.. Remember, this is just ONE company. There are many others that sell lock for non-reference cards.

OP, watercooling GFX cards is simple. there are plenty of Youtube videos to help you remove the stock and install the new.. Also, tell me the exact model of the card and I'll link the product pages to the waterblocks.

Yes, they will be a reference design PCB.

Beware though, because the early 7950's came out on a 7970 reference board. Check the power connectors, 7950 reference should be 6+6 pin, 7970 ref should be 6+8 pin.

He was talking about the logo on the PCIe connector. All reference design boards will have either the AMD or nVidia logo near the PCIe connector.



bigmac11, let us know what GPU you are looking at buying and we can tell you if there is a full cover water block for it. Note that you can always go GPU core only on almost any card on the market.

Edit: Oh, and you might have got better results from posting this in the watercooling section

Dude don't buy a 670 you are just going to be completely dissapointed. I just told you that the MSI TFIII comes with a reference 7950 PCB. I'm going to be watercooling mine soon. I know people who have come from a 680 to a MSI TFIII 7950 (or any 7950 really) and have gotten the same (Some a little better) performance. It's your choice, but I just don't want to see you get ripped off by Nvidia and then be dissapointed because you are getting less performance than 7950 users. Just my 2cents.gif though...

its very simple to find reference HD 7950. check out the ekwb website. all cards which have "AMD reference PCB design checked by EK" are ref cards. they will have full cover waterblock support.

www.coolingconfigurator.com

here are a few HD 7950 ref cards

Sapphire HD 7950 boost model no 11196-16-20G
MSI HD 7950 twin frozr model no R7950 Twin Frozr 3GD5/OC
HIS HD 7950 Iceq Boost model no H795QC3G2M

HD 7950 cards on a ref HD 7970 PCB

HIS HD 7950 Iceq X2 Boost model no H795QMC3G2M

Sorry for the late reply.

From the picture that is a reference design 7950 PCB. Any reference 7950 block will fit it.

thats a reference HD 7950 PCB. any reference 7950 waterblock will work. if you want a HD 7950 with a ref HD 7970 PCB go for HIS HD 7950 iceq x2 boost. more power phases than ref HD 7950. excellent PCB quality. unlocked voltage.

http://www.hisdigital.com/un/product2-731.shtml

http://www.amazon.com/HIS-Boost-Clock-Graphics-H795QMC3G2M/dp/B00A6ASRL8/

http://www.legionhardware.com/articles_pages/his_7970_iceq_xsup2_ghz_edition_7950_iceq_xsup2_boost_clock,3.html

the card measures 311 mm with the cooler. but if you are going to watercool the card will be shorter. thumb.gif
