This was originally posted in the videocards forum, but I didn't get many replies ( ie. 1 ) so I thought you guys might be able to help.


I'm building a waterblock for a GFX card, and I need it to be as adaptable as possible. Basically, I want to have holes in the top plate to fit it to any of the following cards.

Nvidia GF3 ( Ti and standard )
Nvidia GF4 ( Ti+MX )

ATI 8000 series
ATI 9000 series

What I need are the mounting hole positions on each series, and also your observations on cards you own, specifically cards that do not adhere to the mounting specs laid out by the manufacturer.

I have searched the net and found nothing, and also e-mailed ATI and Nvidia asking for this information, but I think at the first sign of watercooling, they ran and hid screaming "VOID YOUR WARRANTY!!!"

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide,
