    I have a pair of BFG 7800 GTX 256 OC's and want to water cool them. I bought a pair of blocks from DD made for SLI but they only cool the GPU and the bottom RAM chips. does anyone here know how I can water the RAM on the TOP of the cards? or find waterblocks that are made for the purpose? any help would be most helpfull. thanks.

    Just grab some ramsinks mate.. Swiftech make some nice ones and they aren't all that expensive...

    The only thing to remember when using them is:

    The ramsinks are held on usually by an adhesive thermal tape.. Make sure when you remove the original cooler that you clean the ram chips with alcohol or some thing similar. The reason behind this is that most of the thermal pads that manufacturers use on the ram chips leave a greasy layer on the chips and the new ramsinks will fall off, potentially damaging your card or other components...

    Just an FYI for ya...
