Cant overclock my BFG7950GT! - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Thread Starter 
Hey thanks! Can I add a water cooling to my current card or do I have to buy a whole new one? These questions probably seem dumb to you guys but I'm really a noob when it comes to hardware!

no, you dont need a new card. My 7950GT is watercooler, there are some pics below...

1st pic - the card with the fan off
2nd pic, the card with the heatsinks for the RAM added
3rd pic - the waterblock (what the water flows though) installed

But my link is a good solution if you don't already have water cooling

So which one would be better/easier adding the water block or buying the cooler from new egg. I will for sure need the ram sinks right?

Sorry for bumping! I didnt realize that was a no-no!

I also plan on overclocking my CPU, will I need to get better cooling for that as well?

Buying a New cooler will be easier..You will get RAM sinks with the cooler.

Also Please dont Keep bumping. Please Edit your Last post if you have anything else to say

You can bump after 24 hours .
I would just get the thing I linked you, that is all you need for cooling it (I am quite sure).
For overclocking your cpu I would get the tuniq tower if you can find one in stock, if not then the Big Typhoon.

Another option would to watercool your entire rig, not just your video card. If you decide to do that then create a new thread in the water cooling section so the gurus in it can help you Make sure you state your budget
