Yes I know price v performance etc, I enjoy tinkering more then gaming atm. No I don't want an all in one.



I plan to do a Kraken g12 type setup with an open loop. Waterblock+120mm pci fan for the vrm or an old cpu fan. But what cpu water blocks would fit out of the box? AM4? I'll fight with it if I have to, but I would rather not. I just need the holes to lineup and I'll handle the rest.

Getting the Vapor Camper off using an oven and using the stock plate and shroud + universal GPU block.

I don't think CPU blocks have the correct spacing. Navi 10 should be 54mm x 54mm




R9-290X DCII with copper shims might work for a reference card.

What about one of those universal heatkiller gpu blocks?

GPU History - 6 Nvidia, 3 AMD <--- need to get this number up

the koolance 220 will be the best block and it will fit problem is is disco and hard to find.

if you find one grab it and keep it. that little block is a damn beast.

It looks like you can get most any cpu water block to fit on the stock plate. I'm going to leave the sock heatsink\vapor chamber to the side. Put some little heatsinks on the stock plate ram spots and use the blower if possible. Then again they have CPU water blocks with extended plating that might just be enough to cool most of the vram without any heat sinks on top of the stock plate. They have little packs of copper heat sinks you can get for like 10$. If I could take the stock heat sink off the vapor chamber, cut it in half and use it in the front and the back of the card, that would work too. If the vapor chamber wasn't so dang thick I'd use it with the stock fins.



Worst case scenario, cpu block with a 120mm fan. I could buy a expensive water block but that doesn't seem as fun or easy to come by. I also like to reuse my parts at a later time. I won't rule out a regular water block though.


Similar CPU block $20, heat sinks $10-15. Or universal GPU block, pretty much the same thing. Looking into the R9-290X DCII. Ignore my little green square lol

I was thinking putting the stock cooler (without fan and other electronics) into an oven to re-flow the solder. Hopefully the whole vapor chamber with heatsink can be cleanly be removed

leaving you with the stock cooler plate to play with. Stock fan and the plate should be plenty to cool just the memory and VRM. Also, gives you a chance to go for a stock water cooled look.

Maybe a small brick under the vapor chamber and let the oven and gravity do the work for you.

Edit, yeah it does look like solder, GN used a screw driver to get it off. I'll look into the oven method. Clean is the keyword . But meh the oven might be a big pain in the u know what.
