    7950 Windforce Rev 2 watercooling?

    The title pretty much says it all, I'm considering water cooling my 7950 rev2. windforce, but apparently the rev2 card is on a non-reference board, making it impossible(?) to water cool. I just took a look at my card and confirmed it was rev2 but also noticed some small holes on my board, I was thinking, hopefully, that these are in the same place as a reference board? If someone could help me out here I'd pay you very well in internet points



    I think there are a couple more holes under the CPU heatsink.

    P.S. if my cable management makes you cry... I don't know... buy me a modular power supply

    You won't get a full cover block, but you could do what I have done with my 7970 and fit a GPU only block with a Swiftech full cover heatsink http://specialtech.co.uk/spshop/cust...pid-16253.html

    What Macadee suggested is probably the best and only custom watercooling option. You just have to remember to cool the vrms and ram but universal blocks are very good and can give you better temps than full blocks aand obviously cost less in the long run and you can just stick it on your next card.
