Hey, is the MCW60 enough to cool a 465 GE or a 570 decently? Probably not going to OC too much, just mostly for looks and noise.

Also, do I need anything special to mount it to either of them?

And last question. Is there much performance loss between the MCW60 and the 80?

Thanks!

The MCW60 will cool fermi just fine, that is assuming you find a fermi mounting kit for it. A quick look at the swiftech website only shows their MCW80 block available so I would assume you would need it if you wanted to mount it on a fermi GPU. Your real problem is going to be cooling your ram and mosfetts. You will need to have some sort of active cooling on them. Swiftech sells larger passive heatsinks that are designed to be mounted with/around their MCW80/MCW60 waterblocks. These by themselves are not enough to cool the ram/mosfetts without a fan blowing on them. I know because when my 285s they would crash under load if I took the side panel (with fan) off of my case.

Okay thanks. They can use the same retention kit as the 80 from what I've read. The 465 GE is nice though as it has its own separate plate already on the ram and mosfetts. I also have fans ziptied inside my case to blow across the vga cards. So I think those will help as well.

Thanks!
