Put a koolance block on my 290x

view full story

http://hardforum.com – I got a XFX 290 on release day and unlocked it to a 290x. I decided a couple of weeks later to try my hand at water cooling. Temps went from 93c load (stock speed) to 46c load (overclocked). Just wanted to spread my cool story bro moment. Also a tip for anyone that gets the block, I think koolance's instruction sheet has some typos. They all specified to use the gray thermal pad sheet in all places, yet the number they indicate is the T7 in some places and T10 in others. I went by the numbers instead of the names. You will understand if you look at the sheet. (Hardware)
