View Full Version : OC Benefit when watercooling 8800 GTX?

I'm probably going to throw in a watercooling system by the end of the month. I was wondering if I'd be able oc my card some more on water, the card can run higher clocks like 648/1566/1053 but it artifacts a little. My load temps are generally 74-76*C with these clocks, so would lowering the temps with water make these artifacts go away? This would be with no volt mods, and the GTX was ordered 1/3/07. System would have a Swiftech MCR320 rad, MCP655 pump, D-tek Fuzion cpu block, and probably a Dangerden or EK block for the card, for single slot. The thermochill PA120.3 is a bit too big for my case and space constraints outside, otherwise I would have gone with it instead.

It's hard to say, it could allow stable operation at 648MHz, but if not you might need a VMod.
