You're much better off saving that money to upgrade when the next series of GPU is released. nVidia.com clearly states it's good up to 97 or 99 don't remember exactly. GPU load temperature in the 60's is actually good I'd believe.

Quite a waste of money, but whatever floats your boat.

High 60's is normal for the 660 and 660ti reference cards.

dont water cool a 660. its not worth it. sell your 660 and use the money you were going to spend water cooling it on upgrading to a better card.

If you're already getting the performance you want then just wait for the next cards.
