Crazy Idea? Watercooling The Sapphire Pulse V56

I recently purchased a Fractal Design Arc Mini R2. This case will support a graphics card length of ~266mm with the drive cages installed. Unfortunately, the Sapphire V56 Pulse is 272mm long. However, if you look at the underside of the Pulse V56, you will notice that the actual board is only half the overall length; the rest is taken up by the cooling solution. See below:

Spoiler!


Does anyone know of a waterblock or AIO that will fit onto this card's GPU?

Many thanks.

Hey dude, i had similar issues finding blocks for non standard sized cards,
Your best bet would be to go with something like a heatkiller, they are compatible with a wide variety of cards and even if yours isnt listed as compatible it may line up.
I also looked at Barrow and Bykski theyre japanese brands that make blocks for all kinds of non standard cards.
With my Zotac gtx 1060 mini i went with a bykski block that had a matching bolt pattern.
Sorry if this wasnty a great help just thought it might benafit you to know what options are available.

Been in tech support for 6 years, Ive been designing and building systems ever since!
OCN for the win!

@thomasj90

Many thanks for that! I'd heard of HeatKiller but the other two are new to me. Just out of interest, what do full cover blocks actually cover? On boards based around GDDR5 I assume they cover the GPU, memory and VRMs? On HBM-based GPUs the memory is actually on the GPU package itself as opposed to being on the board, but I assume the VRMs will still need thermal pads and coverage from the waterblock?

EDIT
All of this is somewhat academic. I've just discovered the PowerColor Vega 56 Nano. I really don't understand why Sapphire could not have made the Pulse V56 the same length as the dual-fan EVGA cards.

Powercolor's cooler is less capable than Sapphire's.


If you really wanted to watercool it there are solutions from Alphacool and Byski. https://modmymods.com/alphacool-eisb...m03-11646.html

Great recommendations +1 for the Alphacool. The Pulse is on the compatible list.
