im liquid cooling a gtx 590, however mine came with the waterblock from EVGA. i want to get a second card and im looking at doing the same. I would recommend EVGA 590 Hydro Copper Waterblock for GTX 590 Classified 400 CU G590 RX | eBay While the sale has ended keep looking to find one as the water block is rare

As far as the layout id assume its the same, the fan layout might be different. to give you an idea of how my temps are

Skyrim on ultra settings 40-44C roughly and im cooling my i7 2600k @4.5 Ghz in the same loop ambient temps room temp

For some reason when i screenshot skyrim it wont show gpu temps from MSI afterburner this is basically best i got at the moment.

My wiring and loops arent the best but im a noob just starting out

As design of GPU blocks are rather basic (no jet plates, same channel structure), you will not find much difference performance wise. Therefore your choice boils down to design preference, vendor preference and convenience of getting it.
