hey guyz, got a problem, bulidin a comp for a friend and got him the new x1900xtx cuz it has better bang for buck then nvdia does in top of the line gaming cards, but can u put a GPU watercooling unit on that and let it water cool or do u have to keep fans? any help would be apperciated thanks

Ive got a x1900XT and ive been thinking about watercooling too. One that i have found is from Koolance. Its the VID-200-L06 (Vid) and it cools the memory too unlike some of the VGA waterblocks that ive seen. So this is one option.

btw, a better bang for your buck would have been an x1900xt, avg $100 less than XTX and will overclock to XTX speeds quite easily.

find one of those water cooling blocks for your graphics card if you can and see the compatibility charts

The link that i provided above is a cooler that will work for x1900 series cards. Yes it is possible to take off the current HSF assembly off the card but do so at your own risk as it will void your warranty.

watercooling+1900XTX=good idea!!

Sure it OC better with water, but if you have a decent pump and a nice rad with low volt fans, you'll get a really quiet system.

Just make sure the card is a bit ventilated so that the mofset doesn't fry prematurely

Go for it!

If you got weather like that, go for the watercooling and just lead the rad outside, thisway you won't need a fan! 8)
