ASUS GTX 670 FTW WATERBLOCK + BACKPLATE HELP

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Can anyone suggest a backplate and waterblock that will go well with a gtx 670 ftw?

i was doing my water cooling build this weekend and have come across a very noob.. problem. I bought the wrong waterblock and backplate =/, i bought one for a regular gtx 670 without knowing the difference..also other variety of problems, like screws no being long enough !

now i am coming to a problem as to what to buy, i have researched and found that a gtx 680 would fit

i would like a full cover and see that xpsc gtx 680 has one for the waterblock, but no backplate.

would a evga backplate and xspc gtx 680 work together?

or should i get a heat killer and its backplate for the gtx 680?

any other suggestions of what pair i should combine?

what screws should i get? are the stock screws that come with either one work together?

thanks !

A 670 FTW uses a 680 pcb, so yes you can and have to buy all 680 componets besides the back plate

I was able to snag one of the 2 in stock Heatkiller waterblocks from FrozenCPU and the backplate from Sidewinder. You're right though, not very many US retailers seem to have a lot in stock.
