Is there any other area I should put heatsinks on?
Thanks guys smile.gif

Ok first things first, your card looks like its a non IHS (integrated heat spreader-square silver cover on the chip) type card-so you just cant go slapping any old universal block on it, if you are going with EKWB use this to find a suitable block for you :http://www.coolingconfigurator.com/

Secondly, the vrms are the hottest part and those should have good heatsinks such as : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835708012 and : http://www.watercoolinguk.co.uk/index.php?action=search&keyword=heat+sink&x=0&y=0 these are very good, i still have a set left over from my universal card days (no im not selling them lol).

Then your memory chips etc will also benefit from heatsinks, they need not be the expensive copper type.

Attach the heatsinks with a thermal adhesive such as :http://www.arctic.ac/en/p/cooling/discontinued-products/thermal-compound/381/g-1.html this is much better than adhesive thermal pads/tape, the heat sinks tend to sometimes drop off with thermal pads. The thermal compound goes on easily, and also may be removed easily, just leave it to cure overnight and NOT for the 5 hrs they suggest.

Here is a great guide for you, just scroll down to the post by rubix_1011 (Universal GPU blocks - Additional cooling considerations) :http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/265776-11-read-first-watercooling-sticky (in fact this guide answers many questions apart from mere universal block usage)

Finally, i also used a slimline Scythe on my older rig (now im full block) under the Video card to make sure that temperatures were kept at a reasonable level (see photo) when gaming etc.

Picture of my rig when i used a Universal GPU block



Hope that this info has helped-all i'll say is be careful and do it properly or as others have said, you will fry your card.

BTW-that long 'black thing' is actually a generic aluminium or steel heatsink that the card manufacturer provide, it can be left in place if you so desire.

Nice looking, 40mm thickness, but ive looked on the site and no mention of FPS is made, for me that would be the clincher.................

Update: 16 FPI hmm.................

Still looks good though.

That is one of the worst uses of money I've ever seen. I hate it completely. Video was too hard to watch had to turn it off.

The first pair I got when I ordered my external radiator and pump case from Danger Den.
The second set I ordered from were slightly different, I went with one side being G1/4" threaded so I could use what ever fitting I wanted (Bitspower is my fitting of choice) for the inside of my case.
I got 2 each of:
Koolance QDC (High Flow) No-Spill Shutoff, Male Panel, Female Threaded
Koolance QDC (High Flow) No-Spill Shutoff, Female Barb [For ID: 13mm, 1/2"]
I also ended up taking 4 large metal washers (about 2" in diameter), drilling out the center hole to match the size of the QDC's, painting them black, and mounted them in the same holes that my case (and ABS Cayon) has for passing cables/hoses through. This let me keep the case relatively unmodified, yet have a nice firm mounting point for the QDC's.

Here is what it currently looks like (Next week, I plan on tearing my entire loop down and replace the tubing from Primochill to Durelene):

Btw im in the process of RMAing 2x VL3N M & 2 x VL3N F QDCs that i used to use, the nickel has come away from the inner circle of the male fittings, and the female fittings are also starting to show the same signs, add to that considerable staining (no i didnt use dye in that loop). Koolance replied that because i use Distilled water with a SKC, my warranty is probably voided-kind of ridiculous, this reminds me of another manufacturer and their insufficient nickel plating jobs.

The twist in the tail? I bought the QDCs in march-wow. So these expensive items have a 7 month time span, before problems set in.(this is not a generalisation, its my personal experience)

Edit: And here is a review of that new XSPC AX360 rad.

thats a little harsh .. Ill admit that its a very expensive alternative to tubing but it does give an effect similar to full copper tubing or other rigid tubings and the look is pretty sweet.. Its something different that looks good and this is the thread for that kind of thing. what if he just makes a ton more money than you , then its justified.

No, it just looks terrible IMO. It's not just the QDCs either, it's like he just found a bunch of components he liked and just stuck them all in the same case. And then he went and used tubing on the outside anyway. doh.gif
And no GPU block? Really?
It is different, and this is the place for that, but if you put it out there be ready for some feedback positive or negative.

Finally, whether he makes a ton more money than me or not doesn't make a difference. Most anyone could save up and do this eventually.

Thanks mate!! +1 rep to you biggrin.gif

According to rubix_1011's guide, both the mosfets and the inductors should be cooled. I can see only the mosfets cooled by the stock long black heatsink. I count 7 RAM chips and 10 inductors, so 17 heatsinks. I will put copper heatsinks on all of them. Is there any other component I should cover? Here's a clearer picture



Oh! and thats a sexy rig! thumb.gif Nice coolant colour! Whats the tube size? case?

and I almost forgot.. CoolingConfigurator says the EK Universal blocks I'm interested in is "Visual" Compatible with my Asus 680 DCII

yeah guess your right about that ,I just find it was worth a try , im more surprised that nothing there leaks . I dont usually use any QD because im afraid they will leak one day ( paranoid much ? ) I certainly wouldnt use 20 of them .
