Graphics and waterblocks

Hello. I want to get a 780 and watercool it, but how do I know which ones support a block and which don't? Does every GPU with a non reference cooler use a custom PCB too?

Could someone list, or point me to a list of reference PCB 780's please.

Cheers,
Chris.

Hello. I already looked there but that's just EK blocks isn't it?

EDIT: I just looked again and i think i found what i was looking for.

Does this mean the MSI frozr is reference?...

According to EK the card is based on a reference design PCB. So pretty much any 780/titan block (designed for reference pcb's) will fit, no matter from which manufacturer.

Sweet cheers fella.
I'm going to wait until after Christmas to see if the prices drop at all, then I will double check with you guys once I've decide which card and which block I want.

titan blocks should fit the 780, the Ti is different though.

Maybe a sale before/during the holiday season but not much after. Most items will be unstocked due to a higher demand because of holidays and low prices.

Ok cool thanks. I think I'll just order one then. So to clarify, the MSI 780 Twin Frozr uses a reference PCB as far as waterblocks are concerned?
