Trying to water cool my current set up as it's from 2013 so if i do something wrong it won't be the end of the world. I'd rather practice on an older system. This block by Computer Lounge: http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/components/componentview.asp?partid=23069  says: "Water block ports' aligns with the EK-FC780 GTX Ti"

 

Does this mean it fits GTX 780's as well?

 

Watching Youtube tech videos, they say the GTX 780 has the same PCB as the gtx 780Ti so back then you could use a GTX 780Ti waterblock on a GTX 780.

 

 

 

The EK website's compatibility list isn't complete so checking there didn't help.

 

 

 

I have a GTX 780 reference card

I interpret it as meaning that the ports on the gtx 980 version are in the same location as the ones on the 780 version, not that the block itself is compatible with either card.

Depends if the video card manufacture has a custom PCB or not. Some just have custom power delivery. You can be assured a half length card will not have the same PCB design but a full length reference design will.

Do your research, surely that waterblock has been used before and without a doubt CL staff would know or one of them.. 

 

 

 

Here we go: EK-FC780 GTX Ti is a high performance full-cover water block for nVidia reference (NVA-P2083) design.

 

 

 

So the stylish silver cooler si the only one it can replace.

Mine is the EVGA one, so i still have doubts.

 

 

 

Is there any disadvantage to getting a universal VGA cooler? I assume they will still cover the VRM's as well as the GPU chip?
