Looking on Ebay, you could get one of these plus a single 120 rad for like 80 bucks. Might be worth it and will prolly perform better then using zipties lol. https://www.nzxt.com/product/detail/138-kraken-g10-gpu-bracket.html

it come in white black red and blue too.

Also this worked very very well for my 6950. Kept temps in the low 60's with a good overclock.

Just a thought tho.

The Accelero Xtreme 7970 you linked is very tempting. Seems like it could do better than an entry-level water cooling setup. I'll do some more research sometime after seeing if my new thermal paste helps enough.

Pretty high temps @ 4GHz after 30 minutes of a Prime95 "in-place large FFTs" heat test.

Testing my GPU now.

Max CPU temps before and after: 94.5C / 85.25C
Max GPU temps before and after: 83C / 75C

9C / 48F difference. Not bad.

Was also the first time removing the heatsink since I built my PC 4 years ago. Had my video card for almost 2 years.

True. Ideally, I'd like for each OS to have its own small SSD. Maybe a 60GB one for Windows, a cheapy 30GB~ one for Linux, and another 60GB one for the other.

I can be prime95 and intelburntest stable all night long but LinX 0.6.5 using all memory is a bitch with oven like temps. Mainly because it utilizes the newer avx2 instructions.
