Palit Jetstream GTX 680 4GB under water.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello All,

I'm going to be putting my GTX 680 under water:

It's a Palit Jetstream 4GB Version

I was wondering if anyone had a guide or video on how to remove the jetstream cooler when it comes round to it.

I've found compatible full waterblocks and backplates, just needing the guide.

Will be my first time putting a GFX under water.

Also, will this loop be good?

Res/Pump -> 360 RAD -> CPU -> GPU -> 240 RAD -> RES/Pump

Res and Pump is a dual bay res with a D5 Vario

Or is there a better way?

Case is the NZXT Phantom 820.

The 360 RAD is in the top, and planning on putting the 240 in the bottom.

Will have an image soon with proposed locations and diagrams/loops

Thanks All,

Unscrew the heatsink/fan. most of what you need to unscrew should be on the back. Clean the exposed chips to remove any oils/residue before applying the cooling pad and waterblock.

Also, do not forget to pull out the fan connection to the 680.

Basic rule of thumb for loop order is to make sure liquid from res goes to pump. Anything else is up to you.

Res and Pump are integrated as one, so no worries there then.

Going to use Heatkiller Blocks because of ease and they look amazing.

Here's some pictures for you,



This is what an empty case looks like.




Here's the proposed locations of the watercooling gear. As you can see, I'll most likely have to heavily mod the case in order to fit it all in without kinks in the tubing. Especially cutting out the top 5.25" support bracket as tubing has to go through there and it kinks heavily (Currently kinked but will have to do until I get back from holiday).

Not sure on whether I'll have to edit the bottom yet to accommodate the 240 rad because specs say that the case will hold a 360 at the top and a 240 at the bottom. I can see where it goes, it just depends on all my wires and the PSU.



This is the proposed cooling loop. I'm going with Heatkiller GPU block and backplate as they look amazing and for ease of use in the loop as the pipes can go both sides.

Currently working on a 3D model which I'll put up once done.(It won't be to scale)
