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!

  1. As far as 760 and 770 4gig cards there are currently no compatible water blocks out there right now
  2. Why wouldn't you just buy a 7970?


    Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 3GB Video Card ($279.99 @ Newegg)
  3. All though evga does offer a waterblock for their 4gb classified http://www.evga.com/Products/Product.aspx?pn=400-CU-G770-B1 or as a combo
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130947

    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?
  6. 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/Liquid_Cooling-Water_Blocks_VGA_-_Card_-_ATI-HD_7950_Water_Blocks-Page1.html 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/Liquid_Cooling-Water_Blocks_VGA_-_Card_-_ATI-HD_7950_Water_Blocks-Page1.html for the 7950 or if you chose the 7970 http://www.frozencpu.com/products/15835/ex-blc-1106/EK_Radeon_HD_7970_DCII_VGA_Liquid_Cooling_Block_-_Acetal_EK-FC7970_DCII_-_Acetal.html?tl=g30c309s1590 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.

    thanks for your help man. I want the best graphics card for my bang. which 7970 3gb would be the best choice? sapphire? gigabyte? asus?
  11. The cheapest one with unlocked core and vram voltage.
  12. Asus would be the best, they are able to have more aggressive overclocks which you should be doing with water cooling
