Mixing gtx 980ti's and block...

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Title could be a bit misleading.

With the falling prices of 980ti's I'm thinking about getting another one. Currently have a zotac amp extreme and finding a 2nd might prove to be a challenge.

I currently have a Bitspower block on mine and was curious if you think maybe something like Bitspower's msi gaming block would match up aesthetically and tube wise to my zotac's. Here are some pics of both blocks. I know they're not identical but only the backplates will really be visible.

Zotac

I wouldn't recommend using different brands, especially non-reference designs.

The MSI PCB seems wider.

Are you judging by the pic or other info? I'll do some looking around and see if I can't find dimensions.

Yeah the blocks are different sized. Don't know why I didn't look at the block dimensions before. Thanks for the help.

Thanks for that. Not in the market just yet. When I am I'm hoping for less than 400. Might be a stretch but with the steady declining price of 980tis maybe not. There's an msi gaming on my local cl for 300. Maybe there's hope.
