EVGA 780i NB waterblock

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a good block for my 780i. Which ones would you recommend?

For my south bridge, will this be fine?

Any suggestions?

As to the NorthBridge, I rather prefer the EK Waterblocks EK-NB 780i - Acrylic to the Acetal ... but that's a personal preference.

And the small Enzotech heatsink for the southbridge is more than enough. Nice blocks all around !

I purchased the EK block and wish I haven't. There is literally no mount in the block. Only holes, screws and springs. The block will press on the chip without any support so if you're not careful you can easily crack the chip. I think Viperjohn's block has a better mount and cools the same.
I have EK 8800 blocks and they're really good and well made. Not much thought and R&D have been done on the 780 NB block tho.
