Mineral oil is good for overclocking, if you use enough of it, but I chose to use a 2.5 gallon tiny tank.
The Puget kit is 5 gallons, and with proper planning of the path of oil flow, it can be great for overclocking
But only if you have radiators!
I saw that Gigabyte was releasing it in November, I waited for this card specifically, it lined up nicely with black friday but not much else was discounted, I didn't save much money
Correct, I picked the "S" CPU with lower TPD and the ECO motherboard that supports it, for the purpose of keeping temps low.
I didn't cut the card itself, only part of the plastic covering the heat sink to get more oil flowing
You can't just cut a circuit board
"I can save some space if I just chop off these 2GB of RAM"
LOL no it doesn't work like that
will do a lot of tests later, the tests will take a while but I'll check back and reply to anybody interested
I can say that leaving Windows on the desktop idling, with the pump off, the surface of the tank reaches 36 deg C after equilibrium
I'll tell you more later
I didn't tell anybody yet, but the GFX card is right up against the front of the tank, and it only fits in that way if I cut down one of the pieces of plastic on the default Intel cooler fan.
