Windows 7: GPU Water Cooling

GPU Water Cooling

So my 780ti is running hot thanks to the not so shabby stock cooler. here currently it is 20C ambient temps in winter and gaming my 780 ti see 78C so come summer i am going to need to beef up cooling. so here are my current options:

Swiftech H240-X with full GPU waterblock


NZXT Kraken G10


A complete water cooling kit (i believe more costly however)

with the G10, i will need to add RAM heat sinks along with VRM heat sinks on the heat spreader but is a cheaper option.

with the H240-X im worried about pump life and higher CPU temps then what i currently have.

So what do you guys think? which should i go for?

Get a 980. Problem solved lol.

A complete water kit is gonna set you back loads man, kind of ruins the savings you made on the GPU. I think one of the first 2 options might be best.

I'm going with the g10. It has RAM and VRM heat spreaders, so it's not worth the full block. Tho it would be really nice.
