    Default Anyone know of a waterblock for a non reference 7970?

    I bought a Heatkiller waterblock for my Saphire 7970 gpu, and realized it is not a reference pcb 7970 when I took the fan heatsink off of it. I'm having trouble finding a waterblock that I can use on my 7970.

    It is the Dual X, just has a different heatsink on it. Made out of copper compared to the nickel in the Vapor-X

    If you end up buying an EK block for that card, make sure you get it from a local (to your country) shop with a good return policy.

    Well the 7970 just started artifacting on stock setup, so I'm returning it for a refund and buying a 770GTX instead.

    Yep, I'm getting a EK waterblock for the evga 770gtx I'm getting shipped right now. All the reviews for the 770gtx are all positive with no bad reviews, and now that I see the 7970 reviews are all mixed with bad ones being more prominent. Thank you guys for your help with everything.

    In our reviews, both the GTX 780 and the GTX 770 beat the 7970, so you made a good choice, did they agree to refund your payment for the 7970 ?
