Water cooling GPU

So i was thining about water cooling my asus gtx 780 with the NZXT Kraken G10 and a corsair Hydro H55. ive read that doing this drops temps an absurd amount on the core, but the VRM and Mem temps either stay the same or increase. now on my 780, asus has added a VRM heat sink across all the VRMs, but not memory. momory i dont think even touches the stock cooler. anyway, what do you guys think of this? my temps currently are hitting 90C on the VRMs and 75C on the core.

what do you guys think? is it worth it being that there is a VRM heatsink?

I have never tried that set up.
I would give it a try if I already had a H80i on the cpu.

Do you already have a H55 and are you sure it will fit the Kraken.

I honestly don't think it will make a impact

unless you change the VRM heatsinks still will run into overclocking trouble because of their temps

Besides that increase your fans a little water is good but you will only see a slight drop in temps the weather is going to get cold soon and you should give that a go before really slapping water on it

The VRMs im not worried about because Asus cards have a seperate heatsink across the VRMs. what im worried about is the VRAM. on the stock cooler, the VRAM isnt even touching the cooler, so to me, i would see no benefit in separate heatsinks anyway. but reading peoples blurbs about it, lots are adding heatsinks. i dont really ever OC ram. currently i have the RAM at 200MHz over stock. but as far as core temps, people are seeing ~50C max load temps... which is just insane!

I've been reading and people have been saying that GDDR5 memory only gets warm to the touch. So heatsinks arnt required. But I'll find out. I'm buying all the stuff Thursday. If the mem or VRMs get hotter than before, I'll just return everything.

ive decided not to do this... few things are scaring me... VRAM and VRMs mostly.
