Watercooling help on AMD 7990

post #1 of 65
Thread Starter 
Hi, I want to water cool my 7990 and try to reach temps atleast 60c or below, however I have no idea what to buy for the 7990,

I only have the H80i for my CPU and thats as far as i went with watercooling, I want to take it further now by overclocking and watercooling my graphics card.


I will probably need if im right:

-Pump/Res
-Radiator
-VGA Block
-Fittings
-Tubing
-Coolant (usually distilled water)


if you would tell me what would be best for the 7990 and the i7 3770k then that would be great.


Specs:

I7 3770k 3.8ghz using h80i
Gigabye Z77-DS3H
16GB vengeance RAM
Avermedia live gamer hd c985
Msi 7990 6gb
Aerocool strike x advanced white
Corsair 800GS

Thanks!

Our EK-KIT products are a great way to start and include everything (minus 7990 block) to get you started.

 

They can be found here

 

The HFX series features our flagship CPU block, thicker radiators, and our more powerful DCP pump, while the LT series features our "budget" CPU block, thinner radiators, and a less powerful DCP pump. The numbers in both the HFX and LT series correspond to the size of radiator included, 120 for 120mm sized etc.

 

As for the 7990 block we also offer various flavours to match your rig style.

 

They can be found here

 

They all fit reference "malta" 7990s, except for the 5th block on that page (that looks different sized than the rest). That is for the non-reference 7990s like the Devil 13 edition.

 

You can also check www.coolingconfigurator.com for more info on that.

 

This is just the simplest way to jump into water cooling, if you would like to build your own custom loop there are many options to go with and I can help with that as well.

thanks for responding with such a detailed explanation with links, helped me out alot!

This should be compatible right? i currently get 75 Degrees Celsius on 2010 games and games like Metro: Last Night i get 85 Degrees
How much do you think this build will lower the temps by? another reason i'm doing this is because of Coil Whine, 7990's have annoying Coil whine.
post #4 of 65
Yup, those two products will work together perfectly!

It's hard to say exactly as so many factors can determine temps but my rough guess would be around high 40s to mid 50s during load with a light overclock. Maybe high 50s during some games/higher OC.

...water-cooling 7990s is a real good idea......have been running two 7990s with EK copper blocks (and TONS of MX4 everywhere smile.gif ) I got from FrozenCPU for several months now...no probs...temps even in the summer never out of the 40 C range.... never did have coil whine w/either (these are the Malta 7990 v2)
