good news !
but it seems the waterblck is not as good as the EK , no water on the mos and the ram , it's just "passive cooling" , what do you think ?
otherwise does someone think it could be possible to fit an GPU block but , keep the black plate (i said black , not back) on the VRM and RAM and add on this plate some heatsinks ?
i really don't know if the block could fit...
That's the best you're going to get, since there isn't an EK block for the ACX 2.0+ cards.
The GPX passively cool the VRM and memory, so good air flow is still pretty important. The GPX blocks are essentially a universal GPU block with a "full coverage look adapter" that's a huge heat sink for the rest of the card. With decent air flow inside the case, they do a pretty decent job of keeping things cool.
Personally, I wouldn't use them because I push my cards VERY hard and with as much voltage as I can feed them. So, they really weren't an option for me, but for the guys that use them and aren't pushing the cards that hard...just above average to good overclocks, they seem to work just fine.
