A local dealer is having a clearance sale on some GPU watercooling systems. (Brand is called CoolIt) The units are for various GPUs from the ATI 5xxx series and Nvidia 4xx series, and contains a full cover waterblock and 120mm radiator with the pump and everything built into a sealed system. They are cheap enough that I figure they would be worth the investment just for the noise reduction alone. My 5970 is running at 90 degrees right now, so I could probably use the extra cooling as well.

The problem is they come with a warning that the waterblock will not fit certain non reference designs. From the 5000 series I own some Gigabyte 5970s and 5850s. They have 5970 and 5870 watercooling kits for sale. What do you guys reckon the chances are they will fit my cards? I'm hoping the 5970 will fit at least? I know fitting a 5870 kit on a 5850 might be more of a stretch, but I just heard a rumor that it might work. Has anyone here dismantled enough GPUs to confirm or deny this? Smiley
