Default Waterblock for Sapphire 7950!

I'm doing a liquid cooling setup soon, but have no idea what kind of water block i need for my gpu.

The GPU I currently have is the Sapphire HD Radeon 7950 Boost
http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...ducts_id=21564

There are these two water blocks:

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...ducts_id=20594

They say they fit reference design gpu though.

Please help!

According to the cooling configurator here, your Sapphire video card uses the reference PCB. So the cooling blocks should fit!

However. Please double check this by going to the linked site and filling in the relevant details. Then click on Next button. On the resulting page near the top right side, there will be information on whether the card uses a reference PCB design or not.

I can tell you from experience Heat killer is an excellent product. Very expensive and heavy, and fits my Nvidia reference card perfectly.

You are also on the wrong board.

You might also look at an all in one cpu cooler. There are kits that let you attach their water blocks to a gpu.

I haven't followed this thread in a long time but here it is. I contemplated this solution at first before going full custom water cooling. The main advantage is that it can be added to a video card at any time without having to take apart your other water cooling or buying the very expensive quick dis-connecting water connectors.

But for looks nothing beats the Heat Killers with their SS back plates. And for those that don't know serious water coolers are concerned about appearance too.

I almost forgot I would be remiss if I didn't mention Swiftech. Excellent products and company. They make the water block for EVGA.
