GPU water cooling thinking ahead

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Well I'm having Coolit elite do my cpu but he mtec control centre allows me to monitor another loop connection and I was thinking of doing a water solution for my 8800 Ultra Extreme, as I can't use the HR11 backside air cooler which btw was absolutely fantastic,I'd figure 10 C at least lower temps during load. It would be a 1 loop water to the gpu and gpu block only, doing nothing else. I'm new to this water cooling and would be interested to research the best gpu block (and anything else I'd need to cool the gpu) and pump/tubing/size of tubing/resevoir....Any direction would be appreciated.

The Swiftech MCW60 is still among the best GPU blocks out there. Solid cooling capabilities, low restriction, ease of installation and great compatability with a lot of card brands.
A GTS240 should be enough for CPU + GPU, but I recommend a GTS360 (or GTX360 if you want a big radiator) just to have some extra cooling headroom for the two blocks. I got a GTS240 cooling my CPU and GPU and it does a fantastic job, but once I start going crazy with overvolts things start to heat up. 30*C above ambient on full load, which is still not that bad, but one could do much better.
