Greetings guys,

My question is that if I can put my Corsair H60 liquid cooler on my MSi GTX 660ti Power edition.I don't have a heat issue with my card but I have my H60 sitting in its box because I replaced it with the H80i.Also if I can I would be pleased if you send me pictures from other forums ( still cant find) on how to install it. Thanks !

The H60 cooler is a CPU cooler, it is not designed or meant to be installed on a GPU. Leave your card as it is.

Well the cooler is designed for a CPU, but if you can find a way to make it fit then go for it. The RAM chips would need to be heatsinked mind, and the retention bracket for the cooler would need some modding. If that doesn't work then you're gonna have to make your own.

I think I have seen a similar mode but the guy used an Antec Khuler on his card

Just sell your H60. There is no benefit in changing your GPU's cooler.

MSI's cooler is more than sufficient, and trying to replace it with an unsuitable product might damage it. And you will 100% void the card's warranty.

You can try, but if you screw up don't say I didn't warn you...

It can and has been done, there's even some people selling brackets for that purpose (look up the "Nvidia Mod").
If you do decide to do this, you will have to add heatsinks to the VRAM and VRM's on the card and provide airflow over them, as the H60 wont cool those components.

If you mod it you will have to spend on a custom bracket, heatsink. Your card is not going to run any faster and you will void its warranty...
