GTX 460 Water Blocks

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have 2 GTX460 that tend to run 70C or higher at idel average use (3 1920x1080 monitors) and am extremely concerned about this. So I decided I should invest in a better cooling option. Looking at water cooling, but can't find a cooling block for the life of me.

Any suggestions for a cooling block for GTX 460? They are: EVGA GeForce GTX 460 SuperClocked 1024MB EE (External Exhaust) (01G-P3-1373-AR)

Put the money down on a GPU with more than 1gb of VRAM and a ton more power. For the $300+ you would be looking at to watercool these things a single 4gb GTX 760 will do much more.

dude above is dead right. the 460 is old news. If you MUST use one though there are one or two for sale in the marketplace for less than the cost of the original waterblock, which should tell you something.

All the 4xx cards run quite hot. Moving up to used 560s is an easier and cheaper way to solve your heat problem. Faster too. Really though, a single more modern card is totally the way to go for the money. The 460 is just too old.

That was my other thought, just buy some new cards for it. My issue with it is this is my back up desktop, mainly used for my living room tv, so I don't want to invest too much into it. If I'm going to spend $400 on two new cards, I would rather add one great one to my primary desktop. For water cooling, I already have a spare pump, res, and all the fittings just sitting In a box, so to water cool the current two cards I would just need to buy some tubing and the water blocks. So I was thinking $150 max for water cooling as opposed to $400 for new 5xx cards. But It's looking like if I want to keep this thing alive, new cards are still the better option.
