Hey Hokeis what waterblock do you have on your MSI TFIII with 7970 PCB? I was about to purchase the Alphacool 7970 waterblock to go with the v2 blocks I have on my other 7950s (with 7950 PCBs), but realized that Alphacool was dumb and they don't have water running over the VRM's in their 7970 water block.
Alphacool v2 7950

Alphacool 7970 waterblock


I'm thinking about getting another brand of waterblock, but I'm concerned about the threads lining up between the Alphacool block and the other brands block. What do I do? Do you have the Alphacool 7970 block on your MSI TFIII with 7970 PCB? If so, how does it perform compared to the v2 of that block.

Here is the thread I made if you have any input please post thumb.gif

Im using Uni blocks with VRM heat sinks. Gpu is cooler then a full cover block and the VRM heatsinks are exactly the same if a fan is blowing on them.

I'll probably get a couple of uni blocks, digging those EK ones with the bridge for xfire/sli.
Dual 290 under water with those would be amazing for my main rig smile.gif

Yea honestly I'm just interested in fullcover blocks. I know you had the 7950 v2 waterblocks just wasn't sure if you any ever had any experience with the alphacool 7970 waterblocks

About finding the best o/c, this is what I did with my 5770.

Usually for gaming I use it at 1006/1445 @ 1.2v and at these setting I was getting ~185 khs.

I reset the clocks and it jumped to ~200 khs. I started increasing the mem clock until it started decreasing the khs rate. Then started increasing the core until the same happened. Started playing again with the memory clock and finally maximize it with the core clock. Before doing these changes I'd stop the miner to have proper performance.

I then started playing with the setting of the miner, I'm using the guiminer. I found out that only thread concurrency had effect on the hash rate. After a couple of testes I went down from the default 3200 to 3100.

Finally my performance is at 215 khash/s which is much better than the max o/c hash rate I started with.

Also, if the mining rate suddenly drops I was told that you need to lower the intensity.

I currently have 2x 5770's. I'll give this a shot when I get home.
