    Cheers, Swiftech have a great rad 240 and 360 rad with integrated reservoir and pump. I already had the mcp-350 pump so was easy and simple to create a neat loop. http://www.swiftech.com/MCR-X20-Drive-Rev3.aspx These rads are 12fpi so work well with low rpm fans. I have a pair of Scythe Gentle Typhoons running at around 1200rpm (7v) and a stock Coolermaster 140mm fan (900rpm) on the Magicool 140mm rad at the back.

    Very quiet and max load temps on GPU is around 48C and on CPU (at 4.8ghz with 1.375v) around 68C..... Pretty good actually as my aim is for low noise and not high performance....

    Looks really good.

    Could I run my cpu and three gpus on the triple + an extra 140mm single rad I wonder.

    Obviously need a 690 first with a waterblock but just thinking ahead!

    I had this swiftech kit cooling a single heavily overclocked 7970 and 2500k at 4.8ghz. Worked fine and again the dual rad worked fine with my current GTX 680 and 2500k. I added the 140mm Magicool rad as it was lying in my workshop doing nothing and has now allowed me to drop the pump speed to 2000rpm and fans to 7v to reduce noise.

    According to the specs the 360 version will happily cool a single cpu and dual gpu's. I believe these specs. I would add a better 120mm rad at the back instead of a cheap 140mm rad like me, take a look at the double thick XSPC RX rads and the new Coolgate rads, they are designed for low rpm fans and will be a damn site better than a cheaper 140mm rad, also you can find better range of rad fans at 120mm.... Make sure that your case can accomodate the extra width of the reservoir and pump on the rad.

    Works fine for me on P8Z68-V Pro. Just single GPU though. Shits a brick when trying with SLI.

    Which Lucid drivers did you use?

    Here's the version that will work. The newer builds are buggy ie - you can't add your own profiles for some reason. Download link in first post.

    Re: GTX 680 Owners Thread

    So, on average, GPU overclock is at about 100Mhz and memory at about 400Mhz? I got my ASUS GTX 680 a week ago, the rest of my rig is arriving Thursday next week, so I can't test it. How does ASUS card compare to other brands in terms of overclocking, stability, heat?

    I did not like that there was no HDMI cable with my card...Grr... Nothing special in the package except for the card itself.

    My PNY came with a spiffy Apple-styled 15' thin, white one.

    If I have some time, I'll try and clock mine this weekend. My first attempt was poor, but I've since moved into a better-ventilated Corsair Carbide 500R case, since everybody said my last setup was running too hot in my Lian Li.
