Which waterblock for my 680 matches the Hydro Copper one closest?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I have a GTX 680 hydro copper card already installed in my system. I bought a new GTX 680 to SLI. I can't find a hydro copper waterblock as they aren't for sale anymore. The only ones I see on eBay are the Classified edition ones (which don't fit I believe, if anyone wants to verify they will fit on a 2gb card that would be great).

Anyways, what waterblock should I get to match a hydro copper one the most for easiest installation?

Thanks

Since the Hydro Copper waterblocks are made by Swiftech, that's where I'd start looking, I have absolutely no idea what specific block it is, but it might be available separately.

EDIT: It (sadly) doesn't appear to be a Swiftech block available for the 680's... mad.gif

I think the swiftech komodo is the same thing as the HC one but as you said I couldn't find one for the 680.

Does anyone have any suggestions on either:
A. a waterblock that has matching tubing locations so I can easily connect the two together
or
B. how I could easily go about connecting two cards together with offsetting tubing locations

Swiftech never sold a GTX680 Komodo. They never sold any blocks for Nvidia cards up until the GTX780 / Titan. They were always sold under EVGA.

You'll likely just have to buy a couple of rotaries and connect two different blocks.

This thread is a moot point anyways becaus the card I'm trying to WC is a Asus DC2 which I mistakenly though was reference design but is not.

So I'll be forced to use this waterblock:

Lowfat, do you think you could point me in the right direction on how I could achieve connecting these two together? I'm really not too sure where to start.
