Hey guys, just need a really quick reply on fitting a Water cooling unit, Zalman Reserator 1 WATER COOLING KIT to be precise, On a 260 GTX Freezer X2, Are there any tutorials on it, And is it worth it? It also has a CPU Cooling, It will be mounted on a Q6600 normal Clock, on a P5n-E sli.
all you got to do is remove the heatsink and fans from your GTX260 then install the GPU waterblock, does the Zalman Reserator 1 water cooling kit come with a full GPU waterblock that cools the VRM's and memory chips or just the GPU?
Heres a video that will show you the basic steps for installing a waterblock on a GPU.
The pump is rubbish the blocks are very old and im not even sure if the radiator has fans or if its passively cooled!
Look what it says for the GPU block : "This anodized, pure aluminum RAM Water Block is built for high performance cooling, and is compatible with Geforce 7800/7900 and ATI X1800/X1900 in need of VGA RAM cooling. It provides easy installation"
I doubt very much that it will work with your GTX260 and other components, even if it did fit, it would be so bad at cooling you'd be better off with air.
alright thanks, and yeah its fanless but loaded on a non OC standard rig it gets about 50C But im looking at a few solutions. Thanks alot guys of Tomshardware, You've saved me spending money i don't need to again.
On a side note, im using a standard Intel heatsink+fan on my CPU, What would you advise for a P5N-E SlI 775 Q6600. I've been hearing good reviews on the V8.
