Gigabyte HD 7950 Questions???

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I currently have a gigabyte HD 7950 and unfortunately it seems I have the Ver 2.0 one. Is there a water block for this baby or do I scrap it and start over? The temps aren't bad just want to add it to my loop.

If you knew you were going to watercool, why didn't you just buy a ref pcb... >.>

There's no blocks for it, however Swiftech has a universal style block designed just for the 7900 series. It cools better than any full cover water block. For vrm's and ram you'd have to get the Swiftech heatsink too.

Well let's see. Bought this before I got into water cooling.(was an air cooling only kinda guy since way back, yes I'm older) Didn't think back when I bought it I would ever want to water cool but living in the desert southwest has sorta convinced me it's necessary. The temp on the thing are okay really I just want to add it to the loop. I figure about 150 buck I can do that no problem. But I guess not. Oh well. Lesson learned. * going to the internet to find a good GTX 780* LOL:thumb:

I have these by choice on my Sapphire's-great solution.
I "settled" for 1100/1450-
I rarely see 44c on core after hours of gaming-VRM's annoy me when they see 68c(W/low speed UV/LED fan on each)
