water cooling a G1 Sniper 1366
I know there are is no water block made for it. Just curious if there are any universal that I can use with a GTX580 Matrix 3 slot gpu?

I have the sniper's big sister, the G1 assassin, and my research for watercooling it was unsuccesful. Nothing was made for it, and i didn't found any universal vrm/northbridge block that was worth the expense/trouble to install.

In my case, there was nothing overheating or holding back my overclocking on the motherboard, it was my i7 970 that felt like heating my whole appartment when pushed beyond 1,4 vcore. After mucho testing, i settled on 4,2 ghz at 1,36 vcore with temps in the high 50s when folding. I just don't like temps in the 70s for just 200 mhz more...

In the end, unless it is for looks, just forget it. It is way easier to just strap a small fan if anything is getting too hot.
