Its not worth water cooling these cards at all-i used to run them in SLI, great cards back in the day (still are actually) but they run very cool,

Secondly the availability of water cooling blocks for the GTX 460 is minimal at best nowadays, and then imo you would be mostly restricted to reference type blocks, and seeing that the 460 came out in many forms, you may have trouble getting blocks for your cards if even you just wanted to get blocks for aesthetic purposes.

Save your money and get a more up to date card (as previously mentioned in the thread)-also when making your choice, take a little time to see whether the card you want to buy has a corresponding water block-use this as a guide line:http://www.coolingconfigurator.com/

So hang onto your money and forget about getting H series gear to cool those 460s

The H series of coolers is a 'Gateway' to more serious cooling wink.gif

Pretty much the cheapest way. You could always spice it up by changing the tubes and adding a reservoir to your loop. Look at this guy's setup for example

I think that guy did something wrong. I modded an H60 with just another h60 rad added in and my temps were good (he said he went straight to 100). And then another poster put up his CPUID where his core temps are lower than his ambient of 20c.proof.gif

Modding an h60 isn't an awful idea but you need a loop that has little restriction, the OP in that thread tried to cool that hybrid heat pipe gimick as well. If you do go this route be sure to use some sort of glycol or swap out the aluminum rads for a copper/brass core.

My H60 mod and photos

It had my 2500k at 4.5ghz and prime95 was around 50c

Agreed, I've been staring @ my rig wondering what next to do to it!



Maybe some lights, idk!!

My temps are really good for a single loop.

Thanks a lot man, that's going to make life easy. I'm waiting for the reservoir to get delivered right now. Here is the build it's going in. Hopefully I can squeeze the massive 400mm reservoir in their. I got a good deal on it. This is just a secondary rig that I'm building with cheap black Friday parts.

No problem man. Looking at your case though, I don't think that 400mm will fit. Mine is only a 250 and you saw how large it is mounted on my rad.

I simply stated "For that little bit more performance, looks and becoz I can"
What do you people say to others with a similar question, why do we spend hundreds if not thousands cooling our PC's?

I can attest that an air cooled cpu can come very close to a water cooled cpu. Albeit, you'll need a massive air-cooler smile.gif

If you have 2 or more 7970's (especially if they are reference models like mine are) it sounds like an airplane is attempting to take off during benching or gaming. Although I once looked at watercooling as a luxury... I now look at it as a necessity! Nothing beats a nearly-silent machine, especially if it's located less than 3 feet from your head.

That a 360mm rad in the front or a 420mm?? I think that will let you know if it will fit or not.

It's a 360
