Basically will thie block http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=39179:f8efc333ceb66a06eb556c695cf0cd83) fit the EVGA GTX ACX SC 760 card?

Edit: never mind no

I thought EVGA was our reference-board salvation but apparently it made a non-ref board for the 760 SC...

so the GPU water block i linked will not work? Which one(s) will?

Thank you.

I don't think there are any... for the SC you would need a universal block.

Or if you don't have the card yet, 670 or 680 blocks are compatible with some 760s, check EK Cooling Configurator.

i checked the configurator but they said they had none and dont plan to make any but i found this: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=39918:38e6f3749cc787c3bb318fd62c1f539b

if you scroll down and look it has a nvidia compatibility list. My card is the EVGA GeForce GTX 760 Superclocked ACX Cooler 2GB GDDR5 (02G-P4-2765) i triple checked to make sure thats the card i have. It says its compatible i looked at a photo of my PCB and the one on there and it matches perfectly.

It covers everything but lets some caps up through, that's the gap on the block i believe

Ok if it works and you want it then go for it. But did you even read my post or look at the link? I specifically mentioned 670, not 760, blocks.

yeah i read it and looked at the link, but the reason i cant get the regular 760 block is because its not a reference design correct? and the 670 + 680 blocks you're reffering to must also be made for reference design blocks correct?? Iv'e read that a couple times correct me if im wrong, if the 670and/or 680 blocks may fit my non reference design PCB then ill have to take a deeper look.

Yes it only fits reference 760, but your wording suggested that you only looked for 760-specific blocks. You are right, it was just that I felt a little slighted. The reason why I mentioned the blocks for ref PCB was because I didn't know if you already had it (sorry if it's in you sig, I'm on a phone and can't see it).

I don't know of any other blocks than the NVXP that will fit your card, maybe you can find some...

Its my fault from not being clear on what im asking. I am going to keep digging on the EK 670 waterblocks though, i just read something from EK saying they will fit, but be a slight bit short and only be able to mount the using the 4 screws that the stock cooler uses to hold on on the PCB which makes me uneasy but im going to try to dig up some more info, i appreciate the help. I didnt think about older gen waterblocks lol

Hmm IDK, I guess you will have to see what you can find.

The reason why older gen works is because 660 Ti, 670, 680, and now 760 all share the same GK104 core architecture.
