    Both will work. First one is for a referance design board/pcb. Second one will go on nearly any gpu.

    Do you know if your xfx's are reference? are they like this, i believe this is a ref design.

    dont't buy the first link cause will not fit anymore to your xfx. i had one before an xfx i've bought full waterblock but it doesn't fit..

    The second one is absolutely fit with your xfx...

    XFX's is reference card. If you want to get full waterblock for 5770 just you need is saphire vapo-x the black pcb. or these saphire original cooler

    PCB means printed circuit board by the way :)

    Yep and I hope to not only cool them better but get some noise reduction as well . Just have this screaming noise with both cards at 75% fan speed any thing less and they get really hot 80c ! I want to get them cooler with no noise .

    the 5770 does not need a water block... you will waste alot of money for nothing.

    Go buy a $3 fan controller and something like Scythe USA SCVSG-2000 VGA Cooler...

    You do know what you are talking about ! Yes it does need water cooling not only to cool them better but to make them quiet ! Man if I wanted fans on them I can do that I have tons of fans man !

    I would pick up an MCW80, not sure of the dimensions of the mounting hole. MCW80 can be used over and over again. They work great on gpus from a GTX 580 to even an 8800 GT if you wanted to. I've used my MCW80 on a GTX 470, 9800 GTX, HD 6870, and now it lives on a GTX 460.

    Look at it this way, your cheapest option is:

    XSPC Rasa: $49.99 x2 - +shipping&tax = ~$120
    Thermal pads for memory and VRM = $25

    You're spending around $145 to cool lowish end cards. If that makes sense to you then go for it.

    Here is what I would suggest:
    The current 5770's are going for $100, so you could probably offload yours for $80ish (maybe 70ish if you want them to move fast).

    Initial $145 investment in watercooling 5770's + $140 from selling cards = $285.00.
    For $285...

    For that you could get a 6950.

    Ok I get what you are saying . But one small thing you forget is there was a time when these cards cost 269 bucks that said yes I am going to water cool them . The air cooling is too loud and well I love my crossfire setup it works great and under water cooling will be even better . No matter the cost just remember it cost more at one time too . If I had to sell them I would not get any thing for them , If I had to wait to sell them my computer would be down for who knows how long . Thing is I just don't have the time nor the cash to get a new card that would keep me running and I really do not see the need to get any thing new just to find in 2 months it is as these cards are now OLD . I am getting really sick of buying new computer hardware every month just to keep up with the Epeens out there .

    you are not alone! water cooling your card will make em dead silent and you will probably be able to squeeze a couple extra mhz out of GPU core as an added bonus!

    and i understand really well you point saying those card are still worth 269$ TO YOU! doing the job for the price you paid! hell i kept my core 2 duo e6300 for over 3 years! then i upgraded to a q9400 because some1 sold it for 50$ . today computer are so darn fast then upgrading monthly is worthless even if you have the cash for it!
