I have the kraken bracket and used an H90 on one of my 780 TI's. At stock, I got 47C load temps (card runs 1.187V on load by default, and runs up to 104% TDP on stock cooler).

If your card is not reaching TDP limits, but thermal limits when clocking, then yes, that will help HUGELY. Using these AIO cooelrs as VGA coolers is where they really shine...coolers get really hot, but GPUs run 1/2 the stock temps, unlike an AIO on the CPU, where you get a few C less than "stock" with an AIO and the best air-coolers can do better than the AIO.

That said, even though I was still exceeding TDP limits, the cooler did allow my card to clock higher, more consistently, for sure.

For my set up it was $840 but it could be done cheaper you can buy kits for a CPU loop and all you need is a GPU block and extra tubing.

A CPU kit I saw on frozencpu.com it was a alpha cool brand with a 480mm rad costed little more than $300. Also I used distilled water and a silver coil

Need a little help if possible: I flashed my 780 ti with "Gigabyte Windforce F3X
80.80.30.1A" and everything works great except for the voltage. No matter what I do it won't go past 1.087. I was really looking forward to the "1.212" voltage boost, but I can't even change the voltage at all.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Is the Gigabyte reference 780 Ti worth it for $600 from Amazon right now? I have no real plans to change the cooling on it.

Please helph!

Origine bios for asus gtx 780Ti matrix platinum bios. I would ask the experts, that based on this single Volt mod bios prepare!

might have to look into that. Looks pretty sweet for the price. Probably add an additional 240mm up front and the gpu block and call it good. smile.gif

From what I understand, the Kraken bracket setup is ok for cooling the GPU core, but lacks the proper cooling for the VRM's and VRAM.

How are your VRM temps sir???

Let's just say I put the stock cooler back, and I did have a plate on the VRMs and memory to use with the bracket and AIO combo. Temps were OK with added airflow, for sure, more than comfortable with Noctua 140mm fan blowing across card. 60-70c is what most people cannot bear to withstand for long, so I can say roughly around that by finger-test. tongue.gif

I have a couple of EVGA ACX coolers, too, and while they do OK compared to stock, it's not worth the effort really, other than for the difference in noise produced by the card. The AIO combo is better for that, really. Sadly, my cards produce a tonne of electrical noise (one is easily twice as loud as the other), so the problem I really have with my cards right now is THAT, and not anything else. Stock cooler works fine, and I like the green LED logo. tongue.gif

So it would appear you have no problem with the stock coolers. That's just even more pushing me towards a $600 Ti. If only news about Maxwell would come out more, so I would know whether or not to get the Ti (highest end of the architecture) or wait for Maxwell (front end of new architecture).

I've said it before, but I'll say it again, playing the waiting game isn't the best idea, there will ALWAYS be SOMETHING NEW in the pipeline. Just do it! Also, I'm betting we won't see a maxwell 800 series this year, and if we do, it won't be till November/December, just my 2cents.gif
