    Default Geforce GTX 780 Windforce Addition Waterblock Queries

    Afternoon all,

    recently scored myself 2 Geforce GTX 780's Windforce Editions (3072mb GDDR5 384 bit) cards (extra included in case its needed)

    Have been looking and thinking of trying my hand at water cooling a system, so far have a water cooled CPU but want to have a bit of an experiment. found some water blocks online (EKW and was wondering if anyone has used their products and what they thought?

    Mainly were the straight-forward to install/operate, and were they any good? im hoping to have a play with overclocking this system and dip my toes in the water with the whole process so am curious as too if these blocks are worth playing with?

    Cheers in advance

    EK is very good, while not the best in the market. The one thing about EK is that they have the largest selection in waterblocks for GPUs, CPU and Motherboards. While there are others out there, some don't have a large of a selection and fitment which is why most tend to choose EK. It's the reason why I did since they made waterblocks for my graphics cards.

    But either way, you can't go wrong with them.
    If you want other options, XSPC, Swiftech and Heatkiller also make some really good blocks, if you have some extra bucks to spend, look at Aquacomputer also which makes very good blocks.

    I have 2 EK GTX 780 Reference Blocks, working great. Both of GTX are OCd to 1050MHz (base clock), and temps never went more than 45-48C (maxed out gaming or benchmarking).

    Always look beyond the limits...
