No I use the stock FE cooler. I am very sure once again I've lost the silicone lottery. I can get the card to overclock to 1466MHz with EVGS Presion X but when I set it to 1466MHZ in the bios games lock up on me. I have managed to set the fan to ramp up to 70% on its own through the bios when the GPU gets hot though. I did have custom water cooling before for three years but I swore never again. Theres just far too maintenance for my liking and the thought of it leaking is another issue.
