Bitspower MSI GTX 970 Full Cover Waterblock Review

DSC_5192Manufacturers have been building factory overclocked components for a little while now. Asus, EVGA, MSI and Gigabyte all have GPUs that boast higher than reference clock speeds.With higher clock speeds, comes more heat. To deal with the extra heat, fans ramp up and more noise is generated. For the most part, more noise isn’t too much of an issue for most gamers as they wear headsets while they are gaming. One of the best ways to deal with both heat and sound is to use water cooling. If you have a MSI GTX 970, then Bitspower has you, covered. Bitpower offers a full cover waterblock that features a clear acrylic top and a nickel plated base.

Bitspower manufactures a vast line of water cooling components and accessories. In the modding and water cooling circles, Bitspower products are highly sought after and receive good customer reviews. If you are new to water cooling or are curious about their products head on over to their website.
