    The Overclocking results I´ve seen so far are very low, at tleat I was expecting them to be much better since the temps are so low. Will this custom block unlock the OC on a custom card? I highly doubt it...

    No, but it'll be much cooler and not heat up the room as much. ;)

    What you're asking will likely require a modified vBIOS, if that will even work.

    What's your saying is exactly the point. Nvidia is ripping us off. Again. They have the capacity to unlock the gpu to give us much better clocks but, because AMD dosent have such a powerful GPU as they have they prefer making us pay much more money for a half baked Pascal.

    Wrong.
    Water or air cooling, or passive cooling - your room will reach the same temperature.

    Unless you move your radiator out of the room, water cooling will just move the heat out of your case. That heat will still stay in your room, slightly increased for the heat produced by the fan and the pump, and slightly lowered because your GPU runs at lover temps and is more energy efficient.
