I dont know if this is true with gpu's or not but, with cpu's the oc'd editions only use Wafers from the center of the Silicon disk (this is where the best quality wafers are found) and the standard editions use the outside wafers A.K.A. vanilla wafers, which have alot more imperfections than the center wafers witch makes them less resistant to heat. I imagine this is the same for oc edition Gpu's

I just started playing with my 280's clock speeds...but air cooled I'm pushing 670/1200/1458 with no significant increase in temps thus far.

If anything mate you dont need a WC block or WC loop for your GFX card, Just get some good Airflow within your case and crank up the fan on it
