Default Converting say a Coolit CPU cooler to GPU Cooler

So I want to have some fun on my holidays and want to know if its possible to convert a Coolit ALC water system to a GPU cooler for my 6970 CUII as I hate having it aircooled where everything else in my system is water cooled.

Thanks for Listening Chiiiildren (damn I need to stop playing fallout)

It's been done before, the tricky part is getting an elegant mounting solution. Keep in mind most of the blocks on these kits (aside from the newer Coolit made Corsair models) are fairly tall and will take up 3 expansion slots.

Done it to my gtx460, performance gain over stock was mediocre. The heat load was a bit too much i think.
