Hey guys ...

I am looking at making a small GPU loop for a GTX 680 and was wondering if a single 120mm rad would be enough to cool a 680 with slight overclocks ...

The specific rad is the UT60 full copper rad from NexXos (sp?) ...

I was also looking at getting a nice small res that I can tuck away somewhere and then I found a local retailer that has the XSPC X20 450 res/pump combo that runs @ 450l/p ... is this thing any good or am I wasting my time ? (the max water temp of 50c is what worries me) ... or would I be better off going for a dual bay res (XSPC X2O 750 - even though I really dislike these things)

All information would be greatly appreciated.

A bit off the topic , where did you find a retailer in Johannesburg that stocks water cooling parts ? I have a 120mm EK I think and a 500lph pump that are doing nothing . PM me if you are interested in using them for testing.

There are no decent water cooling suppliers in SA ... I found that THIS is probably the closest we will come to having a water cooling supplier in SA and they don't stock full water blocks for GPU's and they have like 1 CPU block available .... they do have rads and res' though.

You can also try contact XS-PC as they should be able to give you an official supplier in SA for a GPU block and other goodies (I am contacting them tomorrow)

What were you trying to cool with your WC setup that you saw no results ??? ...

The parts are bits and bobs left over after 18 months of builds. I also have a XSPC Rasa CPU block. I found EK and Sidewinder best for delivery to SA.

I really dislike the crop circles ... lol ... but will see what happens

Other than the CPU block one does not really see the circles as the GPU block faces down.

But you do see the pcb board so a nice backplate makes it look nice.

That's what I did to my cards.

My cards are rotated 90 degrees ... So you see the front of the card perfectly ...

This is how my system looks before extension cables and the WC I plan on doing (just realized it was before my new speakers as well ... lol)

The backplate won't be that much of a issue then. Maybe the Heatkiller block would look good on that set up.
