Putting 6950 under water.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have been entertaining the thought to maybe putting my Sapphire 6950 (which is flashed to an 6970) under water.

Was wondering which GPU block at the moment is the top dog for the 6950/70?

Also how long do you guys think that this card can be competitive with new games? Thinking about eventually CF'ing 2 of them. But I want to make sure that if I spend $100+ on a GPU block I am not going to regret it.

I currently have the Rasa RS360 kit, I am thinking that this would be plenty to have a CPU/GPU loop?

Thanks in advance.

Was looking at this block. Is this one still one of the best out right now?

I am also putting two 6950 under water. I am going to start with the rad in the RX360 kit and see if I need another rad. Some say another 120 or 240 is nice, some say the RX360 rad by itself will be sufficient. Also, www.jab-tech.com has that block for a bit cheap. There is also the XSPC full GPU block, which is a bit cheap.

Cheap, but great. I've got two and my unlocked and OC'd 6950s don't break 40C gaming with 20-24C ambient.

I've currently got two 6950's with the EK full cover nickel + acetal blocks and my temps are about 40C under full load (furmark) with 24C ambient. $105 per @ sidewinder:
