Awch that butthurts. I actually phisically checked the gray circle on my PCB, and yep. There's a pair of capacitors and a choke that go in the way of the heatsink. And I don't feel like modding it U.U

I guess I'll get a MCW60, since the 80 is only available in Pixmania and I won't buy in that shop, not even if they kill my family and shoot me in the balls.


That... Or make a custom block... I have ways of getting some copper bars, and I have thin enough disks for the grinder, so I can mill down some pretty thin fins on it.

I'll valorate the possibilities of building a custom fullcover block


Thanks for the help! Reps all over the place

If your Sapphire is reference design, then it doesnt get any cheaper than $70 USD for this:

http://www.koolance.com/water-coolin...product_id=926

I have all three of my GPUs on this block. $210 to cool three GPUs was a bargain!

EDIT: I just read that you have a different PCB...the block I suggested won't work.

I have that same card, and the only one I've seen that MIGHT work, is:
http://shop.aquacomputer.de/product_...oducts_id=2536

Can you confirm that the PCB is listed on their compatibility chart? I'm not home to pull mine and find out.

That one looks like it will work since it avoid the capacitor cluster on the top left, which is why the EK and Koolance blocks don't work.



They have the non reference sapphire board in there, so that should be good to go.

The only problem with that block is that it's very restrictive. What pump do you have? You end up needing to upgrade the pump in order to use that block.

Interesting. Thanks for the info! +Rep

Why is it so much more restrictive than the average block? I'm not WC'ing yet, but in the near future I will be and plan on buying the MCP655 pump as I've heard good reviews on it.

Due to the internal design. Basically every review I've read has shown that aquacomputer blocks are extremely restrictive, usually around 3x more PSI drop than other GPU blocks.

For example, from Skinnee Labs testing of the GTX480 blocks:

DD-480- 0.29 PSI
EK -480 - 0.87 PSI
XSPC Razor 480 - 1.00 PSI
Koolance VID-480 - 1.22 PSI
Aquacomputer vd-480 - 3.02 PSI

Now the 655 at setting 5 only has around 4.5 PSI of head pressure, so 3 PSI is a significant chunk of that. As long as you use an unrestrictive CPU block and radiator you should be okay, but it's not ideal.

Well... looks like the GPU can be aircooled then, lol. Thansk for the info and +Rep for your help.

I assume you don't want to get an EK Supreme HF VGA or a MCW80?
