Check your case and find out what the max rad space you can fit into it and get that much.

put a Gentle Typhoon, NB-Eloop or EK Vardar fan the rads, most or all set to intake. If you are feeling lazy, get a EKWB D5 pump reservoir combo, if you wanna spice it up a bit more, go for a Monsoon Modular Reservoir and a MCP35x2 (dual DDC pump) from Swifttech.

Which type of radiator? http://www.xtremerigs.net/2015/02/11/radiator-round-2015/ check that out.


To answer your question, yes, dual 240's will be enough, but watercooling is like crack. It won't be too long before you want to add another rad to get even better temps, and so on and so forth, so just save yourself the time of having to take your rig apart multiple times and just max out the rad space from the start.

I'd go so far as to say invest in an aquarium water chiller for your loop. Just make sure it can be set to match ambient or sub-ambient, or you yourself know how to rig it up to do that. I was going to do that a few years ago. Even bought the unit for it. But decided to just stick a portable AC over my radiators in the end.

Seriously how is there no Pascal Bios Tweaker yet? I can't imagine what this card could do w/ unlocked voltage & PT

So has anyone taken apart an Nvidia HB bridge yet? I would imagine once you take that stupid plastic cover off of it, you would end up with something looking like this:

Some of us just hit regular shipping on day one and won't get our cards until tomorrow. Give it a week for the first wave of betas to come out then another week we should have some more refined variants.

Pictures of it without the LED cover portion. Feel free to ignore the article as "Gordon Mah Ung" from PC World is a "doodoo head" (self-censored) paid shill who thinks he knows what he's talking about...and did a whole review trying to promote the HB Bridge by comparing it to SLI Ribbon connectors as opposed to the actual hard connectors that come with any premium gaming motherboard. Every single article he's written infuriates me.

So is there a specific front and back on the HB bridge that prevents you from just turning it the other way or something? Wouldn't that give you all the space you need for an EKWB block?

Technically, you should be able to split that thing down the middle and it should work fine (don't do it...there is some overlapping circuitry, likely just for the LED, but still). There is no bandwidth or data sharing between the 2 SLI fingers. I believe you can even use 2 individual sli connectors to simulate the functionality of the HB bridge. I can't give you a 100% answer, but in theory...there should be nothing preventing the usage of the HB bridge upside down. Because all it does is give connectivity to the fingers on each card.

Aqua Computer just released the preorder for their blocks as well. Although there is no Active XCS backplate yet so I'm holding off. I'm wondering if they're not going to bother with an active cooled backplate since the card comes with a passive backplate already. But if it does become an option, it'll help get a higher memory clock. For reference...without any fans on my backplate right now, in some benches/games I can't get higher than 11Gbps without some artifacting popping up. But if I get some good air flow on the backplates, I can crank the memory up to 11.5Gbps without artifacting. Might not seem like much...but if you can get an extra 5% memory OC with an active cooled backplate...why not. I'm a big fan of them on my Maxwell Titan cards. Dropped temps from the standard 100c~ under OC and hours of intensive use down to about 55c~ at 8000MHz.

I've had the top Intel CPU for like the last 8 years, just got rid of my 5960X to try out the 6700K. Supposedly SL guarantees me a 4.4 GHz 6950X, maybe I can get it to 4.5. wink.gif
I got a 4.4 ghz 6800k from SL. Actually got it to 4.6ghz

Which blocks are better EK or Aquacomputer?

From what I'm reading and seeing, there shouldn't be a problem just using a dremel and cutting off those two stupid tips.

Generally, they perform very similarly, the Aquacomputer blocks are much nicer looking, but they are usually a few weeks behind EK on releasing and come with a higher price tag.
