    I know there IS a liquid cooling for the processor. What about the graphics card? Is it worth it tho if there was?

    Yes there sure is.

    Welcome to TPU! Please while your here can you goto your USER CP and fill in your system specs so we all can further help you.

    There are TONs of water blocks for video cards out there, just depends on if you have a ref or non ref card

    We still cannot see your system specs, please go back to "Edit System Specs" and make sure at the top you have the little box showing "YES"

    I don't mean to be horrible, but this wasn't precisely a really technical question that required human help.

    You could of literally put " watercooling graphics" or "watercooling gpu" into google.

    it might be hard to find one that is for a non reference card like that. maybe someone can help you find one. you can find reference water blocks all day long

    I'm going to throw in my two cents and say that I think watercooling that 5770 is uneccessary, hec my 5850 ran cold with a boosted fan profile.

    In your shoes I'd ramp up the fan is all, the card should load at under 60 degreees easy.

    Yea i would agree with the other guys, my 5850, even OCed to 1.2v 1000core 1200mem, it doesnt get over 75 deg full load with kombuster with fan on 45% and No other program will stress the GPU that hard.

    If you are really unhappy with temps thermalright HR-03 will fit the card ( 4 heatpipe version only NOT 6 pipe) Thermalright V2, Thermaltake Duoorb (according to TT, not seen one installed myself)

    And a few Artic cooling and zalman products will fit if you don't mind cutting some of the fins away due to the DVI block.

    On a card that runs that cool to begin with, just replace the TIM and increase fan speed. If you want to WC a gpu, I'd suggest buying a card that needs it first.

    The person was just asking if it was worth it. A simple "no" would suffice.

    Not eveyone knows everything about computers.

    WaXT, Welcome to TPU...:)

    Im sorry, what's a TIM?

    Thank you very much for understanding. :D

    TIM is is the paste you apply to a cpu/gpu to help disipate heat. I honestly don't think anyone is trying to give you a hard time. The 5770 just doesn't need WC. Now if you are setting a rig up more for cosmetic reasons, that's a different store, but still a waste of money IMO.

    Welcome to TPU :toast: IMHO, you should jump into high-end aircoolers first. H2O cooling is a pretty large investment with a lot of trial and error along the way. Grab a high end air-cooler for the CPU, and a nice GPU cooler (though you don't need one the stock GPU cooler is more than sufficient until voltage increases come into play). Learn about overclocking first (voltages, clock speeds, TIM, coolers, etc.), start with aircooling, and then (if needed) jump into water cooling. Amateur water cooling is a GREAT way to ruin PC parts. :D

    Welcome to TPU :)

    In your other thread you asked for a program to measure temperatures and I suggested Speccy which you liked. What were the temperatures you had for the processor and the graphics card?

    Perhaps they are not so warm...

    Also the best thing is to check the temperatures while you have a game playing, because that is the point when a computer most heats up.

    If your temperatures are highish, before considering watercooling it is simpler (and cheaper) to try out if your case needs an extra fan or two. How many fans does your case have (excluding power supply fan, processor fan and graphics card fan)?

    even a voltmodded Ultra clked 5770 should not not require additional cooling
    the 57xx Referenced coolers are very good
    my 5750 @ 840/1337 never breaks 65c

    Depends what you used to really, I personally find the temperatures of my 5770 uncomfortable.

    Idles at 46c at the moment and fur mark ( xtreme burning, displacement mapping, post fx 1680x1050) gets the card to 78c, by my standards that's rubbish.

    Normally I aim to try and get my cards load temp closer to its current idle temp :laugh:

    yea i agree. i mean if you want to then go for it, more experience for the future. But as said temps on the HD 5770 are fine. Even at 1.312v for 1050/1400 my max temps were like 76 man, fan at 80% constant.

    at stock i don't think i go above 69. Thou honestly i feel like my chip has more potential oc wise but once it hit 76 on higher clocks i crash. If you're going hardcore overclocking on it then i can see water helping with stability for a hefty overclock.
