watercooling an HD6870

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Let me start off by saying I have never done watercooling before. What I want to do is build a loop for watercooling 1 and later 2 6870's. Im sure someone here has done this already. I looked around for posts where someone has made a build log or atleast a list of what they used. but I could not find it. Would my fellow OCNer's be able to tell me what I need? It would be greatly appreciated. Im looking at 300-400$. If I can do it for less great. I'm not sure if those figures are too high or not. Watercooling isnt to hard is it? What are the things I need to know about it?

You could knock the price down by not getting a CPU block or by getting a cheaper pump. You could also get lower end fans but the scythe GTs are well worth the price.

Well I am not looking to water cool my cpu. My temps stay around 55c during prime. But thanks for the build. It looks pretty good. price is good too for the quality. If anyone else has suggestions I will be open to them. Thanks again Klue22.

I've actually got a small GPU-only loop set up now in my 902. Just a MCP355 with a XSPC Reservoir top, a GPU block, and some Innovatek 120mm radiator.

So... you could easily do something similar.

Really? what kind of temps do you get on that 5870? btw I forgot to update my specs I went from my 902 to an NZXT phantom.
