For the price of a Monsta, you could get two different radiators that would cool better than a Monsta. Personally, I wouldn't put that much on even a Monsta rad.

Just to let you know, the toxic series of cards can't be WC'ed. Their a non-reference design, so no waterblocks will fit it, as they are meant for reference cards.

And the monsta rad is not really worth your time right now. Their bog, heavy, and way too expensive for my liking.

I had no idea that the TOXIC line had a diferent reference design I completely agree with what you say about the Monsta though.

Unfortunately they are not reference. Found a review where they state it's a "in house designed and built pcb"

It is more then enough if you can get the radiator. It was limited series and won't be produced again. You need good fans to blow it trough efficiently:)

I believe thick quad is more the ultra thick triple.
