    Waterblock for Gigabyte R9 270


    I am currently building a watercooling loop for my PC because I am idling at 59-66 c on my gpu and cpu with fans maxed out. I found everything but a block for my gpu. A r9 270 is basically a 7870 and I found a 7870 waterblock from EK that listed an HIS r9 270 is compatable. Could it work with my card?

    Compatibility list for EK-FC7870 - Nickel | CoolingConfigurator.com

    BTW, I know this is impractical, but I prefer temperatures and silence over practicality.

    Because of design differences between third party cards, I wouldn't purchase a block unless it specifically states that it's for your version (Gigabyte) of the card.
