I have a GTX 1070 (Asus Turbo) and wanted just to see if there is a cheap/easy way to water cool it?

Keep in mind I am not interested in Overclocking.. just quiet and better heat management

I currently have a MiniITX build and I have a Corsair H60 for my CPU and it works very well and wanted to see if there is similarly an easy way to water cool a 1070..

my main concern are the other components like the Ram and VRMs etc..

My budget is pretty conservative so if it does involve like a 100$ water block followed by a 100$+ cooling system I would probably just live with the noise/heat since this is much more of a want than a need

"Supports all current blower style cards including the EVGA models below with their matching shrouds."

I take that to mean that it should work with the reference PCB design.

but all reference PCB's

the EVGA one might be a good solution too

Kraken works using the G10 bracket!
Actually it's pretty complete really: The AIO takes care of the GPU die and the fan does the VRM.

I had mine running at something like 800rpm on the radiator and had temps around 70 with a mega overclock. Stock speeds it is perfect...

An AIO with adhesive heatsinks is the best way to achieve what you are looking for.

70 with an AIO? Wow that's awful considering my 1070 clocked @ 2100/4550 will max out temps @ 58c and fans @ 40% which is pretty much dead silent. I wouldn't waste money on an AIO to cool a 1070.

If you want to go AIO, you're better off getting the swiftech MCR140-X drive and pick up a universal WB.

yeah I know this isn't a cheap way, but it's a helluva lot better than using a wimp AIO like an Asetek clone.

Hahahaha... I should give you some context. I used mine in an Ncase M1.
It's a tiny 12L volume so you would fit 7.5 of these inside of your case!

It's basically a solid brick once built up so 70 on a benchmark with an OC and minimal fan speed is pretty great!
Of course at a slightly higher but still quiet 1200 or so, you could drop another 5 degrees.

Ahh, gotcha. I tried an AIO on a 290 and it was overwhelmed with the heatload the 290 put out. The fans whaling away full bore and it couldn't tame it, lol! Yeah so 70 in an Ncase M1 isn't too shabby.Especially if the fans are at 800rpms and silent.
