Default XSPC or Ek for 780?

Waterblock question - XSPX or EK for 780?
I want to put my DCUII 780 under water and the only block avaliable is the EK one but I might be able to get my hands on a 780Ti (reference)...

If I could get the 780Ti then what water block would be the best? I am between the EK and the XSPC, I am a big sucker for the XSPC as it can have the led lights that would look awsome in my H440. But is the EK waterblock much better?

Also another question, does anyone have the water block for the DCUII 780 from EK? I know it would not make much difference as the DCUII is cool card by its self on air but I want all water cooled.


Cheers.

It's an aesthetic choice only. I've never had a GPU waterblock that tapped out on temps before it was an unstable OC on the card.

But yeah, the Heatkillers are a dead sexy block. I've used them on my last 2 GPU's, and I'll be picking one up when I update my system.

VRM temps on EK blocks are quite a bit better. I have found this has a big impact on GK110 reference card overclocking.

I stand corrected. I haven't played with any GK110 blocks. But I'm still getting a HK.

Don't believe any of the above would be a wrong choice!!
