    Hiya,

    Might be a stupid question but im thinking of buying this:-
    http://www.msy.com.au/product.jsp?productId=7286

    Inno3d GTX560

    I have looked on Coolingconfigurator and its not list but it has the Nvidia logo on the PCB, does this mean a the EK full cover block will fit it??

    Cheers

    Bob

    No. dont think that is reference. You should not watercool it either as the price of the block is not much lower than the price of the card

    Im with concept here,

    Head over to buy sell forums and pick yourself up a 570 a bit more, when your spending pretty much the same on the block as you are the card, your doing something wrong:thumbdn:

    You could get a good non ref cooled 570 with that money

    the 560 is a relatively lower end card, the stock (reference inno3d cooler) should do fine to cool your fan. You notice that most blocks made are for the relatively higher cards, those that need "actual" cooling than the reference block of crap. As above, a block ranges in around the $120 - $140 price tag, it's kinda stupid and pointless to spend as much as another graphics card on a block that honestly, you really dont need.

    If you have that much money, go higher and buy a better GPU. :)

    I believe they are different and wont fit. Also it should be noted there is a large performance difference in the 560 vs 560ti, as the TI leans more towards the 'high end' category.

    The Ti seem over priced for not fps, the Radeon 7850 is the same money with better performance.

    Not necessarily. GPU core only block are decent. Find a Swiftech full cover heatsink or buy small heat sinks that fit on the VRAM & power components.

    Might be slightly cheaper then a full block but I doubt it.
