:D With a case like this one, I have to make a beastly watercooling. As I said, it's my first watercooling and to have components, it's very hard here (Reunion Island) and expensive. Good computer stores are rare here and selling websites online that ship here are few and taxes are high. So, it takes lot of time to find all the components I need. :banghead:

Nevertheless, I'll still do my watercooling even if it takes time and money.:cool:

Are those waterblocks compatible with the layout of the his ice-q you want to buy? It seems like most gpu waterblocks are designed for reference cards.

It was a hard work to find the good graphic card compatible with this waterblock. First, I searched for PCB's reference cards, but all the model (first generation) are not in stock, and only the MSI was, but I saw there was a lot of problem with this card.
I know HIS are good 7970's cards so I looked for the good one. After long seachs, mails...I had, at least, my response. With HIS' cards, the references wit ...2M are PCB reference (all video ports on 1 line). H797QM3G2M , H797QMT3G2M and H797QMC3G2M are PCB reference.
GOOD:


NOT GOOD:


And... techpowerup.com said :D
Both cards use blue-colored AMD reference-design PCBs

Thanks.
