8800GTX reference design?

Hey guys,

Im looking at getting a waterblock for the old 8800gtx.

It is a OcUK GeForce 8800 GTX 768MB.

So, i need to know if this is a reference design board or not.

Also, could anyone recommend a block???

Cheers guys.

You could buy the Dtek Gpu waterblock -



With the Dtek Unisink -



Which looks similar to this when built -



Or a full coverage block like this -

Those are really the only 2 competitors on the market, unless i want to go for those siberian blocks and then get some ram sinks.

Im bidding on an EK full cover block at the minute.

So we shall see how that pans out, if not, then its time to start looking around again.

Cheers

Full cover EK blocks go for around £30-£40 2nd hand. All GTX's are reference design afaik.

You can use the ''unisink'' heatsink with a swiftech ''mcw 60'' block with a very slight mod.

The swifty block is far less restrictive block than the D-tek and a better performer , probably the best out there imo.

rofl, if i hit my brother i would snap him in two, theres nothing to him.

Therefore, i just pay him, or threaten to take back computer parts which he has in his computer.
