GPU water cooling question. Does something like this exist?

Hey all, I'm a complete noob when it comes to water cooling setups. The only thing remotely close I have to anything water cooling is an h100i for my CPU. I never got into the whole custom setup. Didn't have the time and never had the interest. So to my question, if someone were to gift me a gtx 980 with a hydro cooper waterblock installed on it, is there some type of all in one water cooler (similar to the h100i) that I can just plug up to this thing and let it work like a closed loop cooler? I know they make all in one GPU solutions but those require the removal of the GPU cooling to install theirs. Do they make one that plugs right up to your own waterblock on the GPU?

Thanks!

Technically it could work, but you'd just have the pump/water block from the h100i just hanging around and you could use adapters to run the line from the pump/waterblock to the hydro copper water block. After all the headaches and so forth it would be just easier to not attempt. You could pull the water block and use an HSF for the time being.

Try selling what you were gifted and buy a replacement that already has a fan... How much you want for it?

Swiftech MCR-140XDrive, Pump/Radiator combo. Hook it up to your GPU, add coolant, good to go. You could also get one of their CPU kits (220X or 240X) and just sell the CPU block.

Yep, I was just about to recommend one of those Swiftech rads with integrated pumps. They can sometimes be a bit tough to find, but they're exactly what you're looking for.

There is nothing on the market that will make it like a maintenance-free CLC. It will be a full blown custom loop (albeit with minimal components), that will require at least annual maintenance with weekly checking of reservoir levels.

Maybe not for using the block that is on it, but there are mounts made to use many of the AIO on GPUs, when I moved from my H80i to the swiftech setup, I bought the mount for cheap and moved the H80i to my GPU, under load it sits around 50C, and that's with an OC. Granted, that makes the block he is getting useless, but I guess he could sell it and use the money for the AIO and mount he would use?
