    Bought a GTX 1070 to pair with my crappie FX-8320. I would've bought an I5 6600k right off with it, but wanted to see how the FX would cope first. Gotta say I'm quite impressed.

    GTX 1070 full cover water block compatibility video cards ?

    I need some help here guys , I need to know wish GTX 1070 video cards have compatible full cover water blocks out there , be it EK , Swiftech etc ... as i want to upgrade to a new GTX 1070 but i run a custom water loop on my system , so i need a full cover water block for my new upgrade that will be a GTX 1070. But i do not know wish ones have compatible full cover water blocks as there are sooo many versions of the GTX 1070 video card :/. Is there a list somewhere that provides that information or a dedicated tread ? Thank you.

    Hi there

    Please check this link

    http://www.hitzestau.com/waterblocks-for-the-nvidia-gtx-1080/

    Have run Zotac GTX1080 AMP but I'm selling that card and getting FE or stock GTX1080 as for Zotac I'm unable find good full WB although Alphacool have one but is really restrictive and I don't want this...

    Abobe link will help you with deciding which card to get there,have Titan X Maxwell with full EK WB for sale as I'm thinking getting another GTX1080 or Titan X Pascal

    Hope this helps and best of luck

    Thanks, Jura

    Thanks a lot for the help and information Jura11. That list is very helpful.
    I'm ready to order this GTX 1070 video card from newegg as it's on sale for $379US Dollars :
    https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487265 to go with this EK waterblock http://www.performance-pcs.com/ek-f...block-with-plexi-top-for-nvidia-gtx-1070.html , that video card has a reference pcb design ( same as founders edition ) , so that's the full cover water block for it. On my way to check out i go. Again thank you for your help.

    Kind Regards: Angelo.

    Hola my friend Matt , did you ever got to test the 3 resistors shunt mod on your FE video card ? I have research a lot for the last couple of days and i could not find much information or feedback from users that have done this mod on their FE VGAs but from what i have gather it helps and allows a tiny bit of overclocking headroom ~25Mhz give or take on the core. I know the Pascal cards are already OC to the max pedal to the metal out of the box already and there is not much room left for overclocking , all GTX 1070 overclocked will always end up in between 2000Mhz ~ 2100Mhz ( unless you hit the silicon lottery ) + Power limit + core voltage limit is limiting what we can do with our Pascal cards. can you give me your feedback and experience with this mod ?

    I am really curious if it helps in gaming ( real gains in fps ) since i do not benchmark anymore for hwbot points , and i do not feel it is worth it to do the whole TiNs volt mod soldering resistors and what not because i will be selling this video card later on and i do not want to destroy the card loosing the warranty and selling potential. We got exact same hardware since the GTX 1070 i have is also a FE pcb that eVGA slapped an acx 3.0 cooler on it and call it GTX 1070 SC GAMING ACX 3.0 Black Edition :giggle2: ( such a long name for reference pcb video card lol ). I will be installing an EK full cover water block today so it will go into my custom water loop asap today. If anyone else tried this shunt mod please i would appreciate any feedback.

    It would have been so much easier if we had a Pascal tweaker program , but i research until not available and there is nothing out yet. Thank you in advanced.

    chispy; just try it as it is. For not even 1% extra performance and de-valuing card, it's not worth the bother.

    Hey guys, looking forward to buying a 1070, but i got this history with coil whine that ruins my life ffs!

    can anyone say from experience that his 1070 isn't coil whining? and say its brand?

    thank you!

    Even though I'm still too chicken**** to go into full out watercooling myself, I have to admit I do love the slick minimalist look of some of these waterblocks.

    Do post a pic with the whole inside of the rig when it's ready. :D

    Looks good, what temps are you getting?

    Yesterday I've finally put my PC under water, CPU plus two blocks(GTX1080 and Titan X) and my temps are on GPU in 34°C under very heavy load in rendering, Titan X is running cooler by 5-8°C...

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    Hi there

    You shouldn't be chicken to do full Water loop, yesterday I've put CPU and GPU's under water and this took me around 3 hours to do so, just I would use good fittings and look on few guides etc plus I would check for leaks,in my case no leaks and today I have tested everything and looks I'm OK and no issues, just I would choose probably few other bits as well, but I'm happy

    As first I would use normal tubing and then I would have look on PETG or Acrylic tubing which I would be doing as next

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    The looks are nice but it's not worth the hassle (or the money, or the noise) anymore.
    it was great 10 years ago though :D

    Well i have bad news , the video card was showing at idle sometimes and while gaming some artifacts and squares at stock clocks and while overclock . It was random but it was happening too often while playing Forza Horizon 3 at stock clocks , the video card had Micron memory but it came with the latest bios fixed already from evga ( as per evga ).

    I had to uninstall the water block and mount the stock cooler to test the video card on air and rule out a bad block mount but it kept doing it , this also happened a couple of times before i mounted the water block but because i tested the video card for a few minutes only to make sure it boots and was working , i was impatient to mount my new shiny water block so i did pay no attention.

    Long story short , my video card had a faulty memory controller or some of the micron memory chips vram were acting up/defective :/ . It was sent for rma today in the morning , my new card should be here in around 2 weeks. Will update once i have everything back together , meanwhile Intel Integrated HD4000 will have to do :bugeye:

    PS: temperatures with the water block were 29c iddle and 37c under full load overclocked.

    Thank you for the kind words. No biggie , it happens often with all kinds of electronics hardware , it's not the first time i get a potato defective video card.

    Sorry to hear it. I've been looking at another MSI Gaming X. There's a dude on ebay who put his 3-4month old one up for auction. He specifically mentioned it's Samsung memory. Just sold for £350+£15p&p. I'm suprised lol.

    29C idle... interesting.

    My 1070 with Arctic Accelero Xtreme 4 Idles at 26C.

    Bad TIM or does Air just cool better in Idle cuz the entire PCB gets Airflow?

    Air isn't better but at idle, the water rather warms than cools the GPU. Water cooling excels at load, not idle conditions.
    Still, the differences are slim nowadays and mostly won't show the clock differences to justify the money. Back in the days, good air temperatures meant really noisy fans, so water was both cooler and more quiet.
    Now, air can be much more quiet (no idle noise from the pump) and is only slightly warmer.
    Also, you'd normally fail to see 10% higher clocks with water over a good air setup. This used to be *much* more years ago.
