Default Watercooling GPU Advice

I have a 5870 and a cm690 case with lots of space for a rad. I would just like to cool my GPU what would be my best choice. Of course a complete GPU kit would be preferred and easiest. I have a corsair H50 cooler for my cpu so I just need gpu water cooling now.

Please help me out with any suggestions.

sell the h50 and invest in a proper loop with both cpu+gpu in it. The cost will be about the same and it would perform better than the h50 + a dedicated loop for your gpu.

What case have you got? (to know what kind of setup it will be able to fit.)

I would do that, add in a decent cpu block (swiftech gtz), a pump (mcp655 or mcp355), and buy some tubing and you're all set.

Oh don't forget the gpu block as well :)

check out this log for an idea, but it's easiest to use a swiftech radbox and mount your rad on the back.

Ignore my friend's gripes about high temps- he discovered much later that he had neglected to remove the plastic film from his waterblock LOL- despite me warning him about it.

Yes exactly what I was thinking about, I also like the idea of mounting the rad inside the case and the fans on the other side of the fan grills, just under the black mesh.

- Does anyone know a thinner rad that I could mount inside my case just
-thanks again for the help
