    With no fans i hope that water block covers every single power component.

    Who would buy this? Just one 120mm radiator jeez... TI needs at least 3x120mm for proper OC, I have 6x120mm for GPU + CPU and another 3x120mm passive and I'm still thinking about improving it.

    Why would it need that many radiators unless they were terribly inefficient?

    You obviously have no idea how much heat goes from those cards, not just GPU itself. Good luck to keep it under 50C with just one radiator :)

    I'm interested to see VRM temp. on this one..

    Why are You so extreeme demanding - lol
    Thats not make much sense until You work in studio or something.

    Well it's Guru3D and this is supposed to be enthusiast water-cooled card with pretty high price tag :)

    I mean this is like watercooling for fools. Seriously you would do better with most air cooled cards on market. One radiator has sense if you use it just for the GPU, as a hybrid cooling.

    With this post I lost you, I understand what you said with previous posts but with your last you say that 1 rad is OK for 1 gpu...but..article is for 1 gpu..and as it seems it covers all PCB..:

    sure it's AIO gpu watercooling for dummies* yet without reviews everything here means nothing..

    My TitanXP Hybrids in SLI run at 46C both are on single rads, OC'd to 2000MHz. PUSH/PULL Config with ML120's.

    Read more carefully. I said "if you use it just for the GPU". That means just the chip, with waterblock sitting just on the GPU, while cooling the rest of the card by something else (for example by air -> hybrid cooling). They cool the whole card with just one radiator, which is pointless.

    I realize its a lot of heat, and i specifically stated you need to have a water block that covers every part.

    One advantage of water cooling is its space efficiency. A typical heatpipe cooler usually covers the whole surface area of the card and is 2 pcie slots deep.

    3x 120mm rads is significantly larger(depending on depth). If youre warm water cooling, which is what AIO closed loops are, youll hit a size where you get diminishing returns.

    To "Haste".........Nope, just nope. I had this card in the 908ti (Gigabyte Waterforce 980ti) and i had to overclock it to get it over 50F Never saw it above 60, ever, when pushed hard. 120mm single radiator is fine for 99% of people ad 99% of single card applications.

    Now, I also owned an R295x2. That was two R9 290x's on one PCB. It had one 120 and an extra thick radiator. It throttled pretty bad due to heat. So, I push/pulled two industrial Noctua high-pressure fans and the throttling stopped and the ass kicking began. It needed a 240, double fan radiator.
