So after looking at the cooler and how its build I think I have a better ideal will have to only use one Water block.

but I will get the torch out and bent the Main gpu cooler to the left over top the right one with enough space for a very thin flat fan to fit in between the two sets of Heat spreaders.

Then I will file down the stock coolers aluminum copper block and bolt the water block to it as for some reason there is mounting holes on the top of it.

Then I have a spare water block and lots more room in my case for another 6970 if need be.

What do you guys think worth a shot? if it all breaks then I just use the water cooler and my massive pile of Copper Vram heat spreaders hahaha

So after giving it tons of thought I am just going to bolt the Rasa onto the GPU direct and use heat spreaders on my ram, I will also move the 240mm can from the top of my tower to the side so it blows tons of air onto the card. Today I got a new Tee for my water system and wanted to know where is the best point to put the fill drain tube on a watercooled setup?

Okay out of lazyness and the fact I am fixing 3 people on heres RMA issues at the current moment I half assed my project for now.



So due to the fact I had to drive my boss home sick from work today I forgot to bring home my testing kit, within said testing kit is about 4 different kinds of Vram heat spreaders so the red circles/Ovals are where I will be putting them.

Do I need to do anything else?
