    hey guys long story short didnt check my cards before ordering 2 full watercooling blocks from ek and it seems you cant get blocks to fit the rev 2.1

    does any one know anything about cooling part of the board using just something like this http://www.ekwb.com/shop/blocks/vga...ks/vga-supremacy/ek-vga-supremacy-nickel.html

    now i know this is not a full block but would it be better than normal and also in the link you will see a pic of one installed the the chips around the gpu if thats what there call are then free to air if you know what i mean
    opinions ??

    i have just spent a bit and dont realy want to get new cards but want them water cooled as during the day this pc also mine's during the day

    Yes these will work well but need decent airflow in the case. you may want to use the 'bridge' versions, the block has an extension to clear the card edge.

    Here's one i had mounted to a 6950:

    This also means you can use a bridge block if you want.. serial/parallel versions available for 2/3 slot configurations.

    not essential you can use a combination of fittings if you so desire

    vram heatskinks are probably a good idea (although i never ran any on my 6950)-

    I am interested in this block, Can you fit the ram sink for ram chips under the block?
