I'm planning a side project that I never got around to doing since I've been busy as hell but I'm planning on water cooling my Asus Ares 4gb video card (still brand new, never used, - been really really busy -__-)
Well any way...I plan to use two Alphacool HF 14 ATI / nVidia Smart Motion Universal VGA Blocks - Copper Edition to cool both cores of the Ares.
Here's a link to what I'm thinking I should buy:
Here's an outline of the Ares with its individual parts removed
Here's an outline of the exact specs and length of the waterblock
The "universal“ compatibility claim is based on the mount with a hole spacing of 53.5 to 61.5mm.
It seems like it might just work and fit if I buy two of them and place them on separate areas of the Ares.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated on a proper liquid cooling setup just for the Ares (parts etc.) (I'm going for a closed loop system for the CPU so no problem there).
Oh and the overall parts configuration for this setup will be: (the setup seems a bit old, but all the parts are brand new and never been used, I've just been really really busy).
A Rampage 3 Extreme
24 gig of Ram memory (4x6) (I may use liquid cooling on this in the future...maybe)
120 gig SSD
A 570LX Extreme Performance Liquid Cooler for the CPU
the processor...(hmm...probably going to be an i7 980 or i7 990x)
the case....will be a problem (advice on this would be appreciated as well)
