Waterblocks for Sapphire AMD Radeon HD7950 Vapor-X 3GB GDDR5 PCI - Page 2

post #11 of 14
If you go with a universal waterblock your going to need to get some heat sinks for the Vrm and memory on the chip. Then need some good airflow to keep them cool.

I'd say that it might be worth it to at least apply a more expensive thermal compound, as far as the cooler goes, it's a great cooler, but the quality control on it is really hit or miss.

+1 for this

Also, CHMod makes custom mounts if you PM them for water cooling with a closed loop if you're looking for that, here's the link:

Now that I can certainly agree with. Never hurts to get a better compound on your chips.

The closed loop cooler is another idea, there's certainly a ton of information about The Red Mod here on OCN. I looked at it as an option for my Vapor-X once I discovered I couldn't get a FC block on it.
