Is there a waterblock for my video card and what size radiators to get?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey all, first before i dive into this idea i want to see if there are even full coverage blocks for my card


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125414


The tricky part is that my card unlike the one in the newegg picture is a 6+8 pin design so i am assuming it is a reference 7970 design? So would a 7970 block like this work http://www.frozencpu.com/products/17069/ex-blc-1226/EK_Radeon_HD_7970_VGA_Liquid_Cooling_Block_-_Nickel_CSQ_EK-FC7970_-_Nickel_CSQ.html?tl=g30c309s1590

or what would, if any?



Next, if there is a full cover block then i need to figure out how many radiators i will need for the following

3930k (will be overclocked)
3x 7950s (will be overclocked as much on stock volts)


Not looking to do a monsta (or whatever they are called) radiators because of how crazy thick they are but i have the following spaces

In the front i can fit a 280 (Black ice GTX most likely)
In the top i can run 2x 180s or a 3x140 - not sure what is the better combo, given quality of radiator and fans available for each size
and if i need more beyond that i can run a 140 in the rear



thoughts?

If yours was the first revision of the 7950, then yes, there are 7950/7970 waterblocks for it. The surest way to know is to take a look at the PCB number right above the PCI connector.

If yours was the second revision of the 7950 (if you got it recently), then no, it's non reference and you need a universal block.

For four components you'll probably need both 280 and a second 2x180/3x140 rad. The 2x180 will give you more surface area (~10% more), but I do not know of the quality of 180mm fans, so it's a toss-up.

Do you know what revision is this card?

If your card is revision 1 / GV-R795WF3-3GD it has some water blocks.

But if it is Revision 2 / GV-R795WF3-3GD there is no full waterblock for it

But if you say it has a 6+8 pin power connectors, it is most likely the revision 2 frown.gif




I would recommend getting at least the 280mm radiator and 3x140 radiator MINIMUM, but if you can put a 140mm radiator on the back it would be even better and will give you an even better delta.

Just took a look and they are Revision 2.0 so non reference, well there goes that idea lol (I hate universal blocks) I assumed that since it was a 6+8pin that it was a 7970 layout


Thank you for the help

Rev 2.0 so there goes that idea lol.


Thanks for the help. I dont like the universal blocks so might just do either

1. A nasty air only build (these cards do pretty damn well on air)
2. Swap them for 3x Reference GTX 780s if they do drop at $500 and watercool those

Isn't the MSRP for 780 at $600, and likely more at inflated launch prices?
