Is the EVGA gtx 760 acx sc card based of reference design? waterblock question - Page 6

Reference GTX-760:
Reference GTX-760
^ Has a short 6" PCB that is not as long as the cooler.

Non-reference GTX-760:
Non-reference GTX-760

For the record, there's only two EVGA GTX-760s that are reference design. The 2GB 02G-P4-2760-KR and the 4GB 04G-P4-2766-KR.

As far as other brand GPUs, all of the GTX-760 cards on this GTX-670 waterblock compatibility list (with green beside them) should be a reference design:

XSPC and EK both made waterblocks for the short PCB reference GTX-670 that will fit the reference GTX-760, and Watercool made Heatkiller blocks specifically for the reference GTX-760 (that are likewise compatible with the GTX-670).

And, as has been mentioned already in this thread, the only manufacturer so far to make a waterblock for any of the non-reference GTX-760s is Alphacool, and it only lists as being compatible with:

EVGA GTX-760 02G-P4-2762-KR
EVGA GTX-760 04G-P4-3768-KR
EVGA GTX-760 02G-P4-2765-KR

Well hello to everyone here! I'm brand new to the game but have an EVGA 760 with a heatkiller 3 waterblock on the way. I bought this from a guy on /r/hardwareswap. I currently have a 760 dual sc w/acx cooler and was wondering if the block would fit. I'm leaning towards no but this last post has given me pause to think. I saw the pictures on the non-reference/reference pcbs and got to looking at the pics the guy sent me of his installed. He claims his card is the 2761 which heat killers own reference chart shows to be custom PCB so it shouldn't fit. His pictue does seem to support it being a custom PCB but the block looks to fit all the same.

HeatKiller 3 on Non-reference GTX-760?

Does this mean that it will actually fit custom pcb's anyways or what?

Well it may fit onto it, but will it fit with all the screws in and all hardware where its suppose to be, all of the 760 cards should be able to fit the reference design blocks onto them and may look like a good fit but theyll only have the GPU screw holding it on and some PCB screws on some of them... thus the reason i went with the Alphacool for mine because i didnt feel comfortable not having all the needed screws in place...

I almost bought the 760 heatkiler then realized thats what would happen with my car, just the 4 GPU screws would be attatched, thats a no no for me

So basically it'll cool the gpu just fine, but the vrm and other hotspots on the board won't necessarily benefit? Could I just point a fan at it and be ok? I was under the impression they don't get all that hot anyways. Forgive me if I am speaking like an infant, like i said I am brand new to all this.

Well you could do that to help the heat but would kin of defeat the purpose of a waterblock at the same time, but then the whole block is hanging off your pcb on only 4 screws, you'd risk bending or breaking the pcb itself, i would advise against it...

Thanks for the quick responses. I'll just wait to see how he has it attached once I receive it and if it does fit for some odd reason I'll be sure to document and report back. Thanks!

Sounds good. Goodluck!

Well I finally got the card and block in yesterday. Didn't even have time to mess with it frown.gif But I did take a second to see that the card is the 2762 and the waterblock looks to be held on by 5 screws, the 4 in a square around the gpu and one other at either the top or bottom of the card (can't remember since it was a quick glance). I'll be putting the backplate on tonight hopefully and running a leak test, as well as some pictures!

Okay so as far as it see the only one that fits the non reference card is the alpha cool one. But correct me if I'm wrong.

Yeah spot on. The heatkiller block is what @hotmoosettu is trying out. Waiting to hear back from him about how it fits.
