Actually I will be cooling the CPU, just unsure of the gpu though .. the reference and cards that have different coolers, run a lot cooler, so I'm debating to go CPU only or both

Is it worth watercooling a single GTX670 card, since these don't get too hot?
Personally I would go w/ a universal block. Possibly one like the EK bridge edition, so if you add another card down the road it will be easier to watercool them both. There is already a VRM sink on the reference cards. So all you'd need is a handful of ram sinks. The bridge edition blocks generally look pretty good IMO.

I would say, put as much rad in the case that you can fit - just 'cause. I have three HWL SR1 480s for a single 2700k and two GTX580s. I also have one of my homemade 360s externally cooling my pump ;)

Well yes that is true.. what I'm after is it even worth watercooling a gtx670 because of not much heat load?
Also it's not that I am lazy but.. it's either a full cover block or no block..
