Though i've been told they still perform great smile.gif.


edit: Alphacool seems like they passively cool their vrm too:


Yeah its just that i enjoy watercooling for its overclocks with low noise, just dont want the vrms limiting me at high voltages

Speaking of this. Thoughts on this res http://www.xs-pc.com/products/laing-pump-top-reservoir/acrylic-dual-5-25%E2%80%9D-reservoir-for-laing-d5/

True that....you made me think twice now biggrin.gif

Anyways, HK and AC are my first choices. They and EK to actively cool the vrm(s). I'm not sure if Koolance does and there's a few pics of them and no internal shots to really conclude that. Guess I'm going with HK or AC. EK...still iffy since I'm not liking the crop circles rolleyes.gif

Koolance does actively cool the VRMs. I just put one of my blocks on today! I'll be posting pictures in my log here in a little bit.

Those are 7950 blocks (and DCII). I know some blocks are flagged 79x0 meaning its for both. Does anyone know if it will fit the reference 7970?

Heading over to coolingconfigurator.com to check out the pcb pics smile.gif

Did you open her up? I couldn't find any internal pics and the only bottom pics shows a small strip like the XSPC and Alpha:



edit: looks like 7950 blocks will not fit 7970s. Gotta go with the ones flagged as 79x0.

My older Little Devil system. I still like it after some years of building many other sys.

Oh my gosh... I didn't take a picture of the two channels that cool the VRMs. sozo.gif Totally thought I did... but yes, I did open it up and they are actively cooled by water. The water has to travel through the VRM channel unlike the Alphacool block I believe. If you REALLY want a picture, then I can undo the screws for ya! I got the Koolance one because of the price and that it looks a lot like the MIPs CPU block.

No worries bud thumb.gif Ill definitely take your word for it.

Btw, are you running xfire? Can you measure the space between two blocks (one slot in between)? Thanks smile.gif Looking to see if I can use my BP d-plugs.
