I dont have a comparison but you should check the Asetek 740GF and the 760GC (for CPU+GPU).
See here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1306383/asetek-760gc-updated-with-user-feedback/0_100

Cheers

One of the best blocks of all time is the MCW82. You may need to get an extra copper plate to be able to contact it as the chip doesn't have an IHS.

Another very good one is the EK-VGA Supremacy or the EK-VGA Supreme HF.

If you do not plan to go full water, you could get an Asetek AIO, or just get a cheaper Kuhler 620 and add a cheap mount from Dwood.

While i used two MCW82's on my old GTX 470 SLI setup, i do not really recommend universal GPU blocks. YOu still need to take care of the VRM and VRAM cooling, which only another fan can do, and you won't be able to reach the lowest temps on them, limiting your OC as well.

I remember a roundup at Skineelabs, but i can't access the website as it is blocked at my work for some bizarre reason.

That review you linked is still pretty decent, the only change would be for the MCW80, as it was way more restrictive than the MCW82 so it is not suited for SLI setups.

I used the Heatkiller GPU-X3 Core for my 660ti, which has the same PCB as reference 670s. First I tried it like this.



The unique / interesting thing about it, because the PCB is short, is you can mount it lengthways. The ports reach exactly over the end of the card. You can make an unusual looking loop like this. (Edit: ah, you saw it already, I should be quicker writing my post tongue.gif)



You can use these things to put it in parallel.



The one negative thing is that there are no spacers to prevent over-tightening. So you have to trust your eyes to know if all the bolts are giving equal tension.

if Heatkiller GPU-X3 is universal it should only have four mounting holes correct ? so it shouldn't matter what PCB or video card , four holes around the die are all the same pattern on all cards

Yes it works on all cards, but I think it can only do the lengthways thing on 670/660ti.

Edit: I just saw that it fits with their Multilink SLI adapter http://shop.watercool.de/epages/WatercooleK.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/WatercooleK/Products/10196
