Assume the one that DS sells:

2x SLI Quad SLI (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590 3GB (PhysX) (EVGA Classified 03G-P3-1590-BR)

Is it waterblocked as a couple of boards or would you have to select a quad waterblock?

Hi taw2015,

I don't know the answer to your question but I would like to inquire why you have selected the 590 for your GPU?

The gtx 590 is a single card with 2 gpu chips mounted to it, connected in sli on the board and clock speeds reduced for heat and noise.  So it uses a single card water block.  Two 590's would be two water blocks.
 
 
And like Frank and josephlee said.... why?? 
 
Production has already been stopped on the 590 I believe.

Just a theoretical question.

Still happy running a dual-sli 570 @ 2gb setup.

The GTX 690 was just announced.  You can have one for the mere pittance of only $999!  So cheap you should just go for two! LOL
