Hello I recently been having over heating issues with my EVGA Nvidia Geforce GTX 550 Ti 1GB card. I wanted to buy a
Corsair Hydro Series (h60/h70) liquid colling for my GPU but I do not know where to buy the special cooling block and special brackets needed for this experiment.

Well so I'll tell you what I think I understood, so you want to use an h50/h60's radiators and take off the cpu block and attach it to a gpu block? Not the best idea in the world. As the H50/ H 60 are "low end" liquid coolers. You'll probably be better off on building your own dedicated GPU loop. Also you need to make sure your GPU is a reference model.

If you are refering to instaling a h-60 or h-70 onto that Gtx 550 ti video card I would say its not worth it! Not by a long shot! The brackets your gonna need are called zip ties lol- U wanna put a h60 or h70 to watercool your 550ti right>? Yu dont need any brackets u need zip ties lol . Look for something called the Red mod! That schould explain more to you and whats needed to pull it off-It isnt hard

he could be referring to the dwood bracket that many on this site uses when doing that mod

EDIT: OP have you taken the card out of your system and tried cleaning it good and possibly pulling off the stock cooler, dusting it, reapplying thermal paste and reseating the cooler. that's not exactly a new card and it is possible it just needs a little TLC

After I cleaned out the stock coller from the nvidia card I applied thermal paste and reapplied the stock cooler. The temperature llevel are so:

Before Thermal Paste: 40-49C idle
While Gaming: 51C-65C

After Thermal Paste: 40C-51C idle
While Gaming: 51C-67C

I would have to Amp up the GPU Fan Speed to 100% on speedfan to keep it cool but still doesn't help much..

Also have a 6000rpm case fan blowing straight to it, if that helps much -.-

It's actually better to blow away from then to blow in the GPU. As it inputs dust into the GPU. Pull heat might be actually a bit more profitable for you.

Those temps aren't bad at all. No reason to mod it with a CLC to improve those temps. They are on the lower end for the 500 series.

Go find Dwood on this forum and ask him. water cooling a GTX 550 ti is a waste, though; it runs really cool.
