Odd liquid cooling question...

so a couple days ago i built my computer and i got a evga nvidia 980 ti superclocked with 2.0 acx cooling and a backplate which also apparently helps with cooling. But i've noticed that the backplate gets very hot and after a point it doesn't really help draw heat away anymore. so my question is. is there any type of small liquid cooling system i could place on top of the backplate and have the tubes come out the side of my case to whatever is regulating it all?

  1. Not odd at all, this is how it's done, you are looking for a water copper block for your particular GPU. More gaming folks should chime in shortly to give you specifics.
  2. Like liquid cooling your back-plate? If that is what your looking for no I don't think anything like that exists. You would have to water cool the card itself, a waterblock, backplate, fittings, tubing etc, possibly easier if they have an closed loop for that model. What is the actual card temps, if you just have a single 980ti I would bet the cards temps are just fine with the air cooler.
  3. The back plate is radiating heat as fast as its being heated . Thats why the temperature stabilizes . I doubt you have problem .

    But you could increase the surface area of the backplate by adding additional heatsinks

    they do have a closed loop edition but it's about 150 dollars more.
    im getting peaks of about 81c and an average of 75c when in use.

    I would just try to use MSI afterburner software and change the fan profile, the temps seem a little high for a single card, but not catastrophic and need water cooling. How is airflow in your case? Whatever you do don't use a 13 dollar water bolck that is asking for trouble.

    You would need a waterblock like this one of these, water cooling is expensive to do right, but if you don't do it right it will ruin everything.
