Waterblock for 4890

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm really confused about what waterblock i should go with for my 4890. Is it really that important to get a full coverage block? or just stick with a universal block and get vram heatsinks? My card idles at 55-60 and load it pushs 95+, and even crashes sometimes above 95.

full waterblocks wont rely on air cooling to help cool the gpu, so get a full coverage block if you can

Alright, Thanks. But that's only like $80, what's the difference between that and like the ones on frozencpu that are all about 110-130?

And i do have the saphire Varoe-X card, Do i need to buy somethines specific for it? like this one http://www.frozencpu.com/products/97...c309s902#blank It does look bigger and will cover more.

The price.

Usually Full Coverage blocks only work on reference design cards, cards that have extra cooling or enhancements can have capacitors that get in the way of the full coverage block sitting properly.

If it is an after market card/cooler - you'll probably be looking at ram sinks and an MCW-60R.

EDIT: Correction - Yes, if you have the Vapor-X card, you'll have to get the block designed for it.

Yep the EK one would work.

I thought of buying some water blocks for my toxics, but decided for the money it would better for me to upgrade. Though if you ever decide to get rid of those blocks in the future let me know.

But what would be better? To have the full coverage? or get a solid universal GPU waterblock and just get some vram heatsinks? Is the performance gain from the fullcoverage block worth the $50 more?
