Since nobody with more knowledge has jumped in I'll share my two cents. I do not have first hand experience with universal gpu water cooling blocks but I have done extensive research lately as I am going to be going that route myself.

I cannot say if that particular block will work or not, you will have the look up the compatibility on the manufacturers website. It most likely will since it shares the same mounting configuration as other blocks that are shown to fit that card. I would suggest taking a look at the ek bridge edition universal gpu block. It has a bit more clearance between the pcb/vram chips and the block extension making it easier to attach ram sinks to the ram chips in that location. That is the block I've decided use on my 660 TI. You would also be able to take advantage of the ek dual parallel sli bridge. Either block has good flow rate / low flow restriction and would be easy to add to an existing loop with most any pump.

One caveat to the universal blocks is that you must provide some form of cooling to the vrms and ram chips. This is most commonly done passively, provided your case has good airflow, using individual ram sinks stuck to each chip using thermal tape. It appears that at least part of that card's chips are covered by a heat spreader still once the gpu cooler is removed. This should make it even easier to provide cooling to them. You could also mount a quiet fan that blows directly over the ram sinks to provide even better cooling of those components without sacrificing much additional noise. This would be a good use for the case door fan mounts on some cases.

A big bonus of the universal water blocks, besides being cheaper, is that you can use it again on a new card unlike the custom tailored full cover blocks. The resale value of the full cover blocks also tanks once the card isn't popular anymore.

Edit: Here is a build thread of a member who went the route you are considering on his sli gtx cards to give you a visual idea: two4teezee's mATX SLI

Thought I'd jump in myself as I am getting two 780s soon and will be going full block.

Pro's to full block
+Sexy
+Cool VRAM and VRM also
Cons to full block
-heavier (Might bend the PCB without a back plate)
-cost more
-more restriction on water

Pros to uni block
+Cheaper
+less restriction on water
+Lighter weight
Cons to uni block
-Look freaking God awful with heat sinks on the vram and vrm (Which are definitely needed)
-Have to have separate cooling for VRM and VRAM
-require some serious airflow to keep the VRM and VRAM cool (Up to and including mounting fans in between the cards, high airflow and static pressure fans on the side of your case, etc etc)


I personally chose the reference card design because I think they just look sexy and the ability to keep the VRM and VRAM cooler is a huge plus. Yes, they are more expensive, but well worth it when we are talking about very expensive cards.

Also, you might just want to reconsider those cards in general. I personally don't believe that there is any purpose in having 4GB of RAM on a 760. What are your uses going to be for? Obviously you decided to use two cheaper cards to get better performance than a single, more expensive card, but what are you mainly going to be doing? If you plan on gaming on a single 1080P 4GB of ram is absolutely useless unless you play skyrim with a bazillion texture mods.

First off I would like to Thank you both for chiming in and when it comes to cards i'm a big EVGA fan currently in using EVGA 012-P3-2068-KR GeForce GTX 560 Ti

and by the time i get done gamming they are screeming because they hav'ent been added to my loop and now that i'm ready to do that i will be upgrading first and I would love to spend the money for the more expensive cards but I have already made up my mind on these EVGA 04G-P4-3768-KR GeForce GTX 760 FTW the reason for the 4 Gigabyte all my gaming and anything else I do is done is in surround

so the more memory I have the better my surround will be. for long I will have 1080P monitors. and I have consideration the fact that the VRM and VRAM would need to be cool and from what i have read VRAM doesn't get as hot as it did with the 200 series so if i use heat sinks i think i can blend them in or what the hell get some uv paint and make them stand out and I do like rebelextrm02 idea with the EK blocks i would be able to cool both my cards for around $150 and use them on my next up grade I know the full coverage blocks are sexy but they are more restrictive and I think restriction is a problem when it comes to water cooling

I all so do a lot of do video editing and photo shop

Yes, they are more restrictive, but assuming you are using a D5 pump, you'll be just fine and won't notice it a bit.

Also, you could get the regular 760 4GB since you plan on slapping a waterblock on it anyway. It's reference design, so it'll fit a full block. When you're watercooling, you'll easily be able to OC just the same. Who knows, maybe even better considering the silicon lottery!

yes i have seen the the full block that would work but only be able to use 5 out of 9 mounting screws and with the weight of the full block it would guaranty a warped card and i like the idea of being able to transfer cooling to the next card set up and i don't have a D5 just yet this still a build in progress

If you have the v4 revision of the xspc x20 750 pump then you don't really need to upgrade the pump if you're just going to be running the two universal blocks, cpu block, and two radiators. None of those parts are restrictive at all. You can read more about it at Martins Liquid Lab.

While I agree that the full cover blocks look much better, that particular advantage pretty much goes out the window once they are installed in a standard ATX case where they will be upside down. Depending on the card you get you can still run a backplate with the universal blocks as well.

I think the univeral blocks will suit your needs very well. I'd only go full cover if you had the extra money to burn and was going for a maximum effort and aesthetics build.

Read the last few posts about he solved is VRM and VRAM heat issue. Not pretty, but gets the job done. (Make sure to give him some rep, too!)

What do you have in mind? I'm curious. I'm definitely going full block partly for sex appeal, partly for vrm/vram cooling. With a heavily OC-ed 780 Classified, I'm definitely going to need a full block.
