Couple of questions for my future water cooling plan - Page 4

But having universal it only covers the chip right? Is that good though chip is being cooled but other parts not?

put small sinks on the vram and vrm with a fan blowing on the sinks.
just using this link as a reference for you

My question is are they easy to remove once I change gpu and putback my stock cooler?
post #34 of 86
yes they are. the most you would need to do is heat them with a hair drier to loosen the adhesive. i bought the cheapest they have listed there on sidewinders. they fell off. microcool doesnt use the 'good' pads. enzotech uses 3m thumb.gif

Once you go under water, you will never go back to air cooling.
So you might want to keep your stock air sink just in case. But I can assure you, they will forever collect dust in your parts box.

Water cooling is like crack. Once you try it, it's in your veins for life.

Not once have I heard of guys moving back to air cooling.

Thats why I'm thinking of just selling the gigabyte I have and get a power color or something that uses stock PCBs because theres no blocks that support this card and the onl reason I asked about putting it back to stock fan coz of you know RMA or something? xD
post #37 of 86
I really don't think using a universal GPU block is that big a deal.
Those stick on air sinks are actually a pretty good idea.
I'll be getting them and sticking them all over my boards.

And really, vid card cooling is not that crusial at all.
You would be able to OC the hell out of them with the universal block and some air sinks, no problems.

But I still need to put fans directly pointing at my card right? Coz the heatsink wont suffice heat dissipation.

Also what universal block will you suggest? I'm getting all my parts in Perf-PCS.

List of what I have
XSPC G1/4" to 3/8" ID, 5/8" OD Compression Fitting - Black Chrome Finish XSPC G1/4" to 3/8" ID, 5/8" OD Compression Fitting - Black Chrome Finish

Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 Full Copper 240mm Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 Full Copper 240mm

Yate Loon 120mm High Speed Silent Case Fan - D12SH-12 - Sleeved Yate Loon 120mm High Speed Silent Case Fan - D12SH-12 - Sleeved
- Cable No changes (stock, unsleeved)
- Sleeve Color Black
- Heatshrink Color Black

What blocks to get and what heatsinks to get? Also what bridge should I go for? (preferably all copper)

That all depends on a lot of things: ambients, case air flow, useage, and so on....
Even with WCing, I still prefer to have a fan pointed at my CPU socket, and RAM sticks, an other one pointed at my vid cards, and an other blowing onto the back of my CPU socket. Not fast fans, just enought to help a bit of cooling where I don't have water blocks.

In fact, with these air sinks, I'll try to put a bunch of them directly on the back of my mobo where the socket is to see if that helps a bit.

My TV tuner is a hardware encoder and can get pretty hot. So I'll also have a fan trained on that too. Water cooling doesn't replace air cooling to me, it just complements it.
