780 Classified Watercooling

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So, a few things. Im looking for the best block for the gtx 780 classified.

mind you, I may be running a silver coil the loop, or maybe just look into biocide so it doesnt react with the nickle in the EK series.

Any suggestions vs the hydro copper and what is the best bang for the buck.

Thanks

the EK block is the best block for the classified cards

the hydro copper ones are overpriced, roughly $60 more than the EK ones

The hydro coppers have sub par vram and vrm cooling which is what is really important when overclocking the classified card

the EK blocks have the absolute best vram and vrm cooling out of most blocks for the 700 series cards from nvidia this time around, get them over anything else really. cheaper, better performance, whats not to like? thumb.gif

Nickle and silver are fine together. The problem with the nickle flaking was an issue with the plating process. That has since been fixed and I've seen both derick and tiborrr state that silver is fine to use with their nickle plated
