Watercooling GTX295

I want to OC my GTX 295 soon. However as it already runs anywhere between 75 - 85c while under load I think a better cooling solution is needed. I have absolutely no experience of water cooling at all. I do have a large case (Cosmos S) which supports watercooling so was just wondering if someone could tell me exactly what I need?

Many thanks.

    Yeah really funny, didn't think of that...... However you get the cool block but do you have to buy the pipes and fluid seperately etc?
  3. You will need everything...I don't know of any "kit" that will have everything for a gtx295. You will need:

    - radiator (240 size preferably) ~$60 - $100
    - pump ~$50
    - waterblock for the videocard ~$100
    - 2x fans for radiator ~$40
    - hose/connectors ~$25
    - distilled water + pt nuke ~$10

    all this might cost around $350 after shipping and tax. try frozencpu or danger den for parts. and as always...ask questions before you buy...there are a lot of knowledgeable people around here that can help.
  4. A GTX 295 is going to require a rather pricey waterblock...

    That's going to run you $150+ alone just for the block. Ugh... I'd consider other options before I went down that road... you really are looking a lot of money.
  5. Many thanks for the last two posts, a least some people are helpful with manners.

    Much appreciated guys. I suppose I could see how much I could get for a trade in and put the cost of a water block I was going to spend on one of the new DX11 Radeon cards. Thanks for the tips.

    Ahhhh, now I see what you mean........

    When I originally clicked on your link I just got the google search screen, however i've just logged back on on my work laptop and it takes me to a guide. Maybe I need to update flash or something on my other PC. Many thanks for the help I thought you were being sarcastic before. Appologies
