    Ok folks, What about this pump and res, all in one for the 5970.

    Will this work good for the card or is it not good enough?

    this one:


    http://www.xspc.biz/baypump750a.php


    UPDATE:

    There is a another forum user using the waterblock
    from the same company who made the all in one that I mentioned above,

    Here:

    http://www.overclock.net/water-cooling/840822-xspc-razor-5970-gpu-water-block.html


    Update again, I also found that there is a rad for my antec 1200 case, a 200mm rad that will fit right under the big fan on top of the case however the material is not copper, its aluminum, I heard this will cause problem with cooper but with the right fluid, should be ok.

    Will this and the 2 in one thing I mentioned above will work ok?

    This one:

    http://store.antec.com/Product/cooling-cooling_fan/200mm-radiator/0-761345-75210-7.aspx


    So all together, not including the hoses,etc. comes to a lil over 150 dollars, 200 was my limit originally and I knew it would be a no way 'jose, but let me know what you all think.

    The antec 200mm rad for my case and that xp all in one thingy, let me know what you all think. I think I am getting ready to do something soon, let me know what you all think please. I hope this rad is good enough, or should I go with 120.2 rad for the rear of the case???

    Holy ****ter, update once again:

    Take a look at this video:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYrtkKvxDu8

    I guess the all in 1 thingy is good enough to pump everything, to tgx 480, to cpu. Seems very good.

    Agree the Rad is way more important then the block.

    again, will the 200mm rad will be good enough to cool the 5970, and nothing but the 5970????

    this one:

    http://www.frozencpu.com/products/9...esigned_for_Antec_Twelve_Hundred_Chassis.html


    Ok if this rad aint good enough cause of the material, which one could I mount using the 2 rear 120mm fan section within the 1200 case?? swifttech???

    Update:

    take a look at this 120.2 rad and look at the last comment reply on this product, this one is not in stock but they got the red in stock as we SPEAK!


    Here:

    I'm using a thin triple rad (Alphacool) for my GPU+NB+CPU
    Idle temps GPU 22C and CPU 32C
    Full load temps GPU 33C and CPU 38C ~ 41C
    Without the GPU added to the loop CPU goes 31-37C
    So I guess a good dual should do, but I would still go for a good fat triple rad, I'm gonna switch to one in a week.

    So far I see that the other gurus recommended you stuff that works, so...

    ok I had a dude from sidewinder computers help me.

    I havent ordered the card yet cause I had to pay some stuff to my dad first before I do any buying howeve I did bought some stuff from: performance pc's.com and sidewinder computers.


    I got the xspc quad fat rad(good for future proof cooling), got the
    xspc dual 5.25 bay res and pump, 750 lph. got the fesser compression barbs. xspc 5970 razor. I ordered all of theses and should be here within a week or so. But I got a question here:


    The
    Swiftech MCB-120 Rev 2 Radbox Radiator/fan housing


    Can I use this with the quad rad and the fans along with it or is it to much? should I get two or will one will do???? It says can support single dual or triple rad but didn't say about quad, will it be to much for it???? someone please get back to me asap cause I am middle of ordering some stuff.

    Water cooling will never be a best bang for the buck that I know from my expierence, but I think its best solution for enthuasist. I started my self with CPU and ended with full water cooling for my system. Two separate circles, one for motherboard+CPU, second for GPUs.

    I think best solution is to get a 360 rad for your 5970. Thats what I have for my self and temps never get over 40C at full load.
    I used to have one circle for all system but decided to split in two because I didn't like temps I got.

    I said I got the the quad fat rad, he said its a very good
    idea over the triple cause what if I want to cool the cpu
    in the future, he said this will be good enough, I asked him
    what about 2 5970's? he said erh probably need more.

    Getting the quad fat rad, xspc one. Looks very nice.


    Also got my xspc waterblock today and it looks very nice.


    When its all done, I'll post some pictures. I am hoping 5970 can go down a lil more cause I havent got the card yet cause still waiting for price drop, I think it wont drop any further then it is, after the release of the 6XXX series, 5970 got a price drop but like I said, I dont think anytime soon again this time will drop again.

    The block I use is the xspc razor 5970. I wrote a review about it here:
    http://www.overclock.net/water-cooling/840822-xspc-razor-5970-gpu-water-block.html

    As far as the other water cooling parts go you should read some guides here:
    http://www.overclock.net/water-cooling/

    If you are new to this, I would go with 3/8 ID tubing. It is easy to work with and doesnt kink as much as 1/2 inch. I personally like the swiftech mcp355 pumps. They work very well with a 5.25 bay resivoir. Cooling my 5970s with water has made a huge impact on my temps, you can read in more detail about that in my review.

    Let me know if you have anymore questions.
