I personally would not use that, man. Get a reliable universal waterblock from a company that has some established history and actual warranty support instead.

ok so I can use a just water block. it doesn't have to contact the memory or mosfits just the chip?

like this?

Ya, that will cool your core. For the memory and VRMs, you will need aftermarket heatsinks if you card does not come with a heatsink like the Classifieds/Lightnings come with as well as active fan cooling to dissipate the heat off those heatsinks.

I'm sorry to hear about this. Have you tried plugging the Molex into another connector on your PSU? Please PM me if this doesn't resolve your issue.

I have 2 cards a Gigabyte 7850 and xfx r9 270x and after you remove the stock cooling solution there is nothing in contact with the memory modules.

Then you'll need to use some aftermarket heatsinks to cool your ram chips and VRMs/MOSFETs.

How many slots do you have in between? What case do you have? With 2 cards, and if you use heatsinks to cool the VRMs and memory, it may be hard to get good airflow to both cards. This is assuming these cards run warm, I have no idea really. Maybe you can ask someone in the 7850 owner's club?

I know this is a water cooling thread but I would like to take the opportunity to remember the beloved parts we have all lost. in the pursuit of perfection.

Glad to see you have had a good result. I nearly went to hell and back with the bent pins on my LGA2011 socket but managed to repair them and with some help from the guys on the MSI Big Bang Xpower II thread, my baby is back in the land of the living. thumb.gif
I am utterly useless with a soldering iron and if I had the problem you had I certainly wouldn't have tried to repair it myself even if it was theoretically possible.

I have a small Roswell case. and the Maximus VI gene only has 2 PCIE slots and yes there is not much room for air flow. that's what I'm wondering what's a better option full card cooler or chip cooler and heat sinks. right now there's no room for the cards stock cooler to draw air between cards.

OK, the problem is going to be that although your Gigabyte card is a reference card and you'll be able to find a full-cover water block for it, your XFX card isn't. This is going to make it very difficult to water cool the two of them since you'll have to use a universal water block and individual heatsinks for the other components on the card. Air flow is also going to be an issue because of that case and the fact that you'll still need good air flow for the XFX card.

ok so if you had to pick a replacement card at the 260$ I paid for the r9 270x
