    I'm starting to seriously consider building a water cooled rig for folding as I run it almost 24/7 now and need to keep the temperatures down for longevity of the system. I currently use a Gigabyte R9 280X rev 2.0 which, annoyingly, has a custom PCB and it's almost impossible to find a full cover water block.

    Does anyone else have this GPU and know of or use a full cover water block for it? If I can't find one I'll swap it for a MSI or ASUS model which I know have full cover block available.

    Don't think there is a full block available for it. Only other option would be Kraken G10 + AIO :(

    Think I may sell my Gigabyte card and replace it with an MSI then, to match my MB (yes, I'm OCD) and then enable water cooling.

    When I have two in CrossfireX, of course...

    Time to swap my case for a more water cooling friendly case I think. Mainly want a loop for cooling 2 GPUs and leaving my CPU on it's AIO Corsair H60.
