They are all reference design man ;)

 

except those Palit and Powercolor crazzy ones that have the aftermarket heatsinks.

Is there much gained by water cooling a hd4870x2? How much more can you over clock?

It depends, unless you volt mod the cores and memory its not worth it IMO unless you want silence, since you may/will 1. void the warranty, 2. could damage the card irreparably due to improper installation and 3. have to spend like $200 for the block alone plus the cost of a high end water cooling system its only an option for those that delve into the extremes of cooling.

I have completed the same setup a few months ago -case. I got sick of hearing the Gpu fan.

 

Beginners water cooling system

 

Never going back to air cooling.
