I am looking to buy a gtx 760 4gb gpu. I want to utilize my water cooling rig, but i am unable to find a water block for the 4gb gpus. Does anyone know of one out there that is confirmed to fit? Thanks!

As far as 760 and 770 4gig cards there are currently no compatible water blocks out there right now

All though evga does offer a waterblock for their 4gb classified http://www.evga.com/Products/Product.aspx?pn=400-CU-G77... or as a combo

But you would be stuck paying the premium for both


It is a 770 not a 760. Much like the 660 Ti that it is replacing, the 760 will likely not receive any water block because it doesn't make sense to pay 30-50% of the price of the card to have it under water. Since there isn't much of a market for it, there is no supply.

i have the i5 2500k. so i thought the nvidia geforce gpu would be my only option. should i just step down to the 2gb gpu to water cool? or what are other suggestions?

you can have radeon or nvidia, it depends more on your motherboard and what it supports. if you really want to go with water cooling just get something like a 7950 and go here to get a block http://www.frozencpu.com/cat/l3/g30/c309/s1626/list/p1/... I personally wouldn't water cool a cheaper video card but it's your choice

That motherboard could totally support a 7950 or 7970. I would go for either of those and get either http://www.frozencpu.com/cat/l3/g30/c309/s1626/list/p1/... for the 7950 or if you chose the 7970 http://www.frozencpu.com/products/15835/ex-blc-1106/EK_... This cooler is amazing, EK originally took the design off the market for a while but now it is back and still amazing. The only other thing is with the gtx 760 it simply is not fast enough for 4gig's anyways

The 250K isn't going to bottleneck any of the current generation cards if it is overclocked. The more powerful 7970 with 3gb ram would be the clear choice at the same price point.

Asus would be the best, they are able to have more aggressive overclocks which you should be doing with water cooling

Thanks to both of you for your help! Appreciate it! I see the specs say the asus OC utility is very easy to use as well. This was just what I was looking for!
