GTX680 Waterblock Fitting Guide

XSPC Razor GTX680 Fitting Guide

GTX680 Waterblock Fitting Guide  

Fitting a water block to your brand new graphics card can be quite a stressful time, the thought of dismantling your brand new GPU that works perfectly isnt what many would call fun. Over the years at OC3D we have become accustomed to stripping the latest and great graphics cards the Asus MARS, ARES and MARS II were all stripped just to show you guys the PCB that was beating beneath the heat sink. 

We are currently working on a review to test an XSPC RX360 - D5 water cooling kit and knowing we would need more than the heat of a 3930K to stress the radiator we have a GTX680 we are going to chuck in the loop too with an XSPC Razor waterblock.

We felt it would have been rude for us to have not shown you how easy it is to fit while considering we had to do it as part of the build process anyways, so here is a quick video showing you exactly how to do it:


The block as well as the whole kit we will be using are all available from the boys over at SpecialTech.

Urgh I think he did :headscratch:

OP, Are you planning any mods or just a build?

Bullet holes etc are a bit too obvious but there's other things you could do maybe.

I am thinking on putting a pin-up girl on the side panel just not sure which one yet and will add some markings from the things I saw while in the Army. Future is to replace sad tinted panel with a clear one. No bullet holes; not part of the theme. The SSD was a trade for the ASUS Sabertooth from the Gigabyte Z77X-D3H which sucked up the funds but looks better (no blue). Want to add a Corsair H100 later but the lack of funds has hurt that. Here are some new pics:

So I got it all built up and running and just needed the 8 pin extension to get the EPS plugged in. Here are the money shots:




And no CD


Still looking to add a H100 or good air cooler and some better fans in place of the stock, new side window (clear no fan mounts) and some touch ups down the road. I will keep this thread updated on the changes as they come along. For the far side panel thinking on ghost image of paratroopers marching in with slightly more pronounced images of airborne unit insignia and I might call it "The Devil in Baggy Pants" in honor of my time in the 82nd ABN Division.
