    Hi All,

    Been scouring the internet trying to find a water lock for my new MSI RTX2070 Tri Frozr GPU (https://www.msi.com/Graphics-Card/GeForce-RTX-2070-TRI-FROZR.html)

    I've found is the EK-Vektor trio which is for the MSI Gaming X trio. They both use the same Tri-Frozr cooling fans so it's a possibility, but I'd have to shell out £140 to find out

    Wondering if anyone knows?

    Thanks

    Pointless.

    2070 supers run quiet and cool.

    Mine has never seen above 65c whilst benching.

    It's also never been heard apart from boot up

    Good points, but it would be purely aetheric as I upgraded from 2xgtx 970s. So the rest of my watercooling is still in place and now I'm going overkill on just cooling my CPU. Seems a shame to dump my custom loop.

    On stock config the fans don't even spin up untill the GPU temp hits 65 degrees so that'll be the reason you haven't heard it superb card especially for VR

    Not Quite, i ended up having to modify an Alphacool M05. the card itself is slightly longer than the standard 2070 design, so i had to cut the aluminium block into 3 pieces in order to elongate it! the larger part of the block which covers the GPU and houses the water cooling fixtures seems to be standard and fitted perfectly. i also had to cut out part of the plexiglass to accommodate the power connectors, and used some plastic washers to screw the backplate to the water block where the card didn't quite fit. the main point is that the main part of the block around the GPU seems to be a standard size, the placement of the other components seems to a different matter. i only had to create a space of a few mm to make it fit.
