Sapphire 5850, Non-ref Waterblock?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi there. i'm looking for a waterblock for this specific GPU:


I believe that is a non-reference card. The only non-reference 5850 block I've found is from EK, and with their latest shananigans, I don't want to purchase from them.

Anybody know of any other blocks that will work on this card?

Thanks!

It looks to have the same PCB has the Vapor-X, but you would have to check. If it does it is compatible with EK's 5870 V2 waterblock.

There's been a huge controversy over their new "If you use Additives your RMA will be declined" rule they've recently posted, saying Additives are the cause for cracking their acrylic (specifically they named PT Nuke). And since I'm planning to use PT Nuke with Distilled water, I don't want to buy from a company that makes crap products that will die if I use industry-standard materials.

That's not what their policy was at all. I personally contacted EK about this issue and they said that they banned additives only because they had received a lot of cracked reservoirs and people had been using PT-Nuke. They have no proof that PT-Nuke damages their products, only anecdotal evidence. They have since redacted their statement, and have begun testing to determine whether or not PT-Nuke is to fault. I suspect they will determine it is not the reason for the cracked reservoirs.

This Koolance *should* work http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=27842. If I remember correctly, the 5870 blocks are compatible with the 5850s. I'm using an EK "Asus 5870 V2" on my 5850 DirectCU. I considered this block, but passed it up since it wouldn't line up with my reference block.
