whats better for GPU cooling 8800GTX - Page 2

post #11 of 29
i too have the Koolance 8800 GTX cooler and im not very happy with it...i should have got the MCW60 like Ira-K suggested...i have one on order...my gpu with the stock fan cooler idled at 53c...with my Koolance block im at around 40c...not really worth it in my opinion...of course , i am dumping the heat from my cpu into my gpu so im sure that has something to do with my high gpu temps...

or maybe it's just because the pump isn't pushing enough water through it..

I think I'll take it apart when I get the new pump mcp655
Are you talking 40c for that 8800 GTX? If so, that seems like good temps. Before i watercooled my 8800 GTX with the danger den waterblock i was idle at 67c. Now that i am on watercooling i run 34-36c idle.

Does the D-Tek even fit the 8-series? The MCW-60 only does with the adapter kit.

yeah i run the 8800GTX water block from DD as well and seriously, my temps on a hardcore OC (3rd in the forums) rise to 45 load... and heads up, the 8800GTXs are good up to about 95 degrees, so i'm less than half of that at load with my CPU heat dumped on top... not bad IMO, and maybe you should look @ the DD WB... beautifully designed, and machined...

yeah...40c may be good for a 8800 GTX with a full coverage block... but ive routinely seen temps in the low 30c's with the MCW60...i should have done more research before i bought the koolance block...which will be for sale soon..lol

They are not crap, just more restrictive on your loop. They cool the memory better than the MCW-60s+ramsinks, but the core temps do not get nearly as low as the MCW's.
