400series Full water block or hybrid

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey, I was wondering if I could get some opinions on if I should go for a fully water block on a 400series graphics card, or if I should go for one of the hybrids which involves a heatsink and a small waterblock just for the GPU. I am looking at swifttech, and will gladly consider other brands if you recommend over them.

I would really get an EK Full cover block for a 4xx series graphics card. They use a lot of power and their VRMs can get really hot without proper cooling. Cooling the VRMs from 120+C to below 60C really makes a difference in the quality of power they produce.

If you really want good overclocking results, get a full cover block. I really like EK's due to their quality and low restriction.
