I'd be careful with this, if your hair dryer is anything like mine, it could melt things if you use it too long. You will be fine as long as you mind what you are doing though.

I'm still debating between the ASUS 7970 DCII and one with a ref PCB. I'm just wondering what my VRM temps would be like with a universal waterblock like the Swiftech MCW82-7900 and the stock vrm heatsink included on the DCII. I know EK makes a full cover block but I'm really not a fan of their stuff and a full-cover block wasn't in my original budget.

Stock DCII heatsink: http://img.techpowerup.org/120203/hd7970-dc2-3d-3.jpeg

Depends, are you looking to do a 5 or 6 screen setup? If not, then get reference.

Right, don't hold it too close and don't run it for very long.

yeah, I hope the card is fine, it has served me well it is sitting in front of my box fan right now hopefully drying out...

Just 1 screen at 1080p. The only reason I'm going 7970 instead of GTX 670 is for a little extra grunt when using Solidworks. But I hear horror stories about how loud the reference AMD cooler is, and ASUS seems to have one of the best custom coolers. As far as ref PCB models go, I think a Gigabyte card would be my first choice.

Get ref then if you're only playing at 1080p. Not sure why you're concerned with ref cooler noise if you're going water anyway.

As an alternative to save money and not go water, the EVGA 670 FTW is extremely quiet, even when OC'd heavily. May want to look into that.

I really like what Bundy showed with the LED's lighting the res. I'm not happy with the cathode tube as shipped with the res and was considering changing it out if I can take apart a cathode with out destroying it. Any tips on that?

Meanwhile work continues on the Switch. Trying to get a new psu/rad cover fabbed since I want a little more room under the HDD cage so I yanked the 2 "pull" fans off the EX240. Eventually probably go dual pump and I wanted to make some more room. Had almost everything apart multiple times and no leaks yet, although I don't know how many more times I can compress this tubing and get away with it. I love the Bitspower rotary fittings but once you crank one all the way they are a witch to get uncoupled, at least for my old hands.

My Res leaked cause I took it apart to clean hard water spots out of the plexi(it was rinsed in tap before it came to me) and I didn't tighten it enough. Which was a good thing cause I didn't line up the Helice device just right with the dual port so the coolant would fill the Res and force out the top which alerted me to the problem. It was a good thing I had 4 gallons of Distilled handy to mak sure I didn't run out. thumb.gif

Collapsible VGA fittings work well for this as long as you don't have the EZ mount in the direct line between the FC and the CPU blocks like we do. Which extensions did you use to connect your 90s' to? How tall are they? I still haven't connected mine up yet. thinking.gif I figure I have a 10mm Difference in height lower than the top of the CPU block. thinking.gif

Good luck like Majin says give it a few hours and let it evaporate normally. Shouldn't have an issue after that. smile.gif

A 670 FTW on air was my plan up until about a week ago, and then the option would be there to slap a 680 waterblock on it if I ever got annoyed by the noise or wanted cooler temps. My main use will be gaming but also some SolidWorks and I recently found that the 7970 is about twice as fast in that particular application, which is why I'm now leaning that way despite how I like the 670 better in every other regard. The reason I'm concerned with the AMD ref cooler noise is I'm not initially going to put my card under water, but rather concentrate on the CPU loop at first and see how much money/patience I have left afterwards. redface.gif

I don't know if a GPU with good compute will even be needed for my SolidWorks use though. By the time I have the skill or the need to create large and complex models, I'm sure the next generation of GPUs will be readily available. confused.gif
