XSPC GTX Titan Waterclock Fitting Guide  

So, you've just bought the most powerful single GPU card in the entire world, but that's just not enough. You're a computer enthusiast, so you strive to do more with your parts, and you have a strange affinity to water. The solution? Let's get that baby stripped, cleaned, and underwater! 

Now we understand that the Titan's vapor chamber heatsink being on show to the world does funny things to our funny things, and we know that the Titan's one of the best looking reference cards released in the last two years. We know this - we get where you're coming from, and we agree that it would be a shame to lose such beautiful aesthetics. We're totally on your side, until we see what XSPC have to offer.

Not only does this stunning block complement anyone's rig with its sleek looks, it also unlocks the true potential of the Titan. Replacing the ol'vapor chamber with this will allow you to run your card cooler, quieter, and yet still faster. We also included a back plate in our guide as we feel that it applies the finishing touches to the look of the card whilst aiding the cooling to the memory modules located on the back of the PCB. 

Enough of the chit-chat; let's move on to the video. Make sure to pay close attention if you are considering doing this yourself. This is not a hard procedure my any means, but it still takes patience and a little know how to ensure that everything's hunky dory first time around.

So, the things to take away from this video are XSPC provide all the fittings and memory cooling pads, so there's no need to worry about buying them separately. You can use the thermal paste that XSPC provide, but we would say yourself a syringe of Noctua NT-H1 or Arctic Cooling MX-4 for better temps with zero conductivity. 

Keep your eyes peeled as we will be testing this puppy under water in the not to distant future but if you would like to discuss your thoughts of the water block now you can in the OC3D Forums.

Nice block, shame the backplate isn't brushed metal like the block, but a small niggle. Looking forward to the benefits!

Also, I think you missed a red washer when fitting the backplate Quote
