Bitspower vs EK gtx 780 waterblocks

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I recently purchased a new gtx 780 to replace my HD 7950 and am looking for a water block for it. I have previously used EK (and xspc a long while ago) for my waterblocks; however, Bitspower's new 780 block caught my eye. While I really like the looks of this block and trust Bitspower when it comes to fittings, reservoirs, etc. I have no experience with their waterblocks and this block is significantly more expensive than the EK offering. Any guidance is appreciated, or if you think I'm way off than please recommend your block of choice. thanks

Btw I'm looking for the lowest temps/ highest potential OC

From the research I've done it doesn't matter what waterblock you get as the cooling is just so good with any block that there may only be 1-3c difference in temps.

The XSPC block has the highest flow and the aquacomputer block is adored by many for looks. I went with the swiftech blocks and they are pretty good and also maintain a green led.

With my cpu hitting 80c and going directly to my top 780 that 780 barely hits high 40's usually around 45-40c.

Do a little more searching as I heard someone say something about one block cooling vrms better which is more of a concern if a block doesn't do that too well.

Bitspower isn't listed in this article, but it does a really good job of comparing other blocks.
it not only compares gpu temps, but flow rates and vrm and vram temps - and some are much better at cooling than others.

thanks, I actually saw that article earlier and its omission of the Bitspower block is what prompted this thread; however, if you have any guess as to what the Bitspower block would perform most closely from that article it would be much appreciated
post #5 of 6
i have both and they perform about the same and maybe the bitspower is a bit better (1 degree), same for overclocking its down to aesthetic really at the end..... thats why i bought both..

Thanks, I actually ended up going with the EK block(really for the price), but thanks for the advice. Sweet looking rig btw; what case is that?
