Aquacomputer GTX 780 waterblock with Watercool Heatkiller backplate

Anyone know if these will work together?

And:

I just LOVE the look of the Aquacomputer, but they don't have a backplate to go with it so far as I can see. I also LOVE the Heatkiller backplate though, it looks awesome.

The Heatkiller backplate comes with screws that are too long for the AC water block but if you replaced them it would probably work. Back plates are carefully designed to work with specific water blocks though.

Yeah I had seen that, I hate that it doesn't match. I may go for just a block without a backplate, none of them are good this round except Heatkiller's.

Thanks.thumb.gif

We also have backplates.

The active version (XCS) can be also used but makes no real sense since the GTX 780 has no RAM on its backside.

Thanks, I want one purely for the aesthetics to be honest, do you guys by chance have a nickle or other metal one hidden anywhere? I really don't like the look of the black one or the EK black one for example, I'd like it to be a bit flashy like the HK one. thumb.gif

No, it is only available in black as seen in the shop.

Ah well, that's a shame. I'll probably just start with the block alone then and maybe later try the HK block. Thank you! thumb.gif
