    Purdy. Every time I read about that Santa Clara HQ I read it as "Santa Clause headquarters" - with bits like that inside, the mistaken name might not be too far off accurate for many geeks :D

    What's your point? The block alone will be around £70, plus you get to keep your warantee here.

    Can't use dual slot cards in my machine at all as I need all 3 PCI slots so water is the only way to go, not seen any shots of the rear of this thing yet I have had quite a few water blocks that claim to be single slot but they add an unecessarily large backing plate or over large screws meaning that if you have a large PCI device in an adjacent slot like an Xfi with large caps I have to bend :rolleyes: or Physx card with largish cooler then teh clearance isn't quite there, would you know if these have this issue or any further shots.

    The best WC blocks I have had so far for fitting my stuff in are from Innovatek but even they provide a silly backing plate that I had to hack down :rolleyes: would like to just buy something like this and have it fit without getting out the hacksaw/dremel.

    If these are good I may just bring a few back from the US next month and take advantage of the nice exchnage rate :D

    Kinda embarassing for Bit-Tech to forgot they mentioned theirselves... :D

    Two, he? I haaaaaaaaaaaaaate you! ;)

    I'm thinking about getting a 7950GT as it's affordable. Maybe eVGA to make use of the 90-day-upgrade offer.

    :wallbash: oh well, 7950GX2 will do for me until Eddy Ek does a waterblock for it, and when something actually needs DX10.

    this is the best it can get (at least for me). The best gfx in a package with no compromise.
