Best waterblock for 6950/6970

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
What would you say is best as far as the price to performance ratio is concerned. im have a rasa750 360rx kit with sr-1 140 rad. that i wanna probably hook two hd6950 ati reference cards on. as you know the hd6950 and the hd6970 reference has identical board layout.

Im a big fan of xspc but if you guys recommend other brand that not only look neat in my corsair 700d case but also cools my vga cold that would be great. thanks in advance for your inputs

They are worth it. If price is a problem get a swiftech universal block and some ram sinks for your card. That will be cheaper, but will not perform as well.

I would stick with EK, they are the most popular choice around here for a reason. thumb.gif

They perform awesome and look great (IMO).
