Does anyone know if it is possible to put a GPU, specifically the GTX 780 Ti Classified, on water in the Mac Pro?
What challenges would I be facing?
You'd have to have external power, for sure. Also, fitting the water cooler in the case would be a problem. There is that new ASUS 780Ti with the water cooling tube fittings built in. If you cut a couple holes in the case you could run it outside to your cooler.
You would be a bad ass though.
You can get PCIe expansion bay covers with ports in them for tubing so that gives you access to the outside of the case. Quick disconnects will deal with moving the case.
You can get external radiators of considerable size (see Phobya) but you would only need 120.2 (or 120.3 for preference) so a micro case with small PSU, pump (such as D5 vario) and a small tube reservoir and space for a couple of radiators is all you need.
