Hello, I'm starting to build my first single loop water system and the only place I am having a issue with is finding a full gpu card water block for a PNY VCGGTX560TXPB-OC-S GeForce GTX 560 Ti . Any ideas out there. Any would be very helpful.

If you can't find a model specific block, try this,

Seems a handy Hs, wonder if they have one for 6950's :-)
*Edit, they do but only reference, damn my two Asus DcII's hehe

Moving this to the watercooling forum.

companies typically only make full water blocks for reference cards... that card looks to me to have a reference cooler on it... check out www.coolingconfigurator.com

if so take off the fan and check to see if it looks like this

If so then this block will work

If it doesn't look like that you will most likely have to go with a universal GPU block and some small passive heat sinks on the vrm and such

I'm actually thinking about trying this with my MSI Hawk 560Ti. Even though it uses the Twin Frozr III cooler, I am almost certain that it is a reference PCB. I checked it with an EVGA PCB and it looks exactly the same.

I wonder if Swiftech actually compared it when they listed it as non-compatible. More research to be done!

EDIT: The only thing keeping it from being compatible are the locations of...wait for it...4 capacitors.... Maybe I can pick one up cheap and drill it?

Mill away!

I'm betting it's a lot simpler than you might think... :)
