    Shoggy, I really am liking the design of Aqua Computer's 295 block. It really looks nice and very flexible. I wonder if the stock casing can still be put on afterward. hmmmm

    @dorian: I think Sidewinder Computers will have them first.

    @BlueAqua: nice idea but that won't work.

    I don't have pictures right now, but its one of my favorite video card blocks
    Good to hear in regards to completely dropping Alu from all of your new blocks.

    When will this be available and to which retailers? And what's the price for the block?

    God, I don't know which to choose!!!!!! I just got my gtx 295's and While I really like the design on your block shoggy, I just got rid of my EK 9800gx2 blocks and I liked how they performed! Plus on my x58 board the Swiftech SLI fitting worked perfect with the cards right next to each other. The way the fittings connect to yours it wouldn't let me do this, but eddys blocks look like I can do the same thing!! By the way Eddy, your 9800GX2 blocks rocked!! Keep up the good work! Although, Dean, your blocks would be mighty sexy if the fittings were vertical!

    WOW is there a problem with saying quad sli is broken? because quad CF is too.... I was just saying before that the 2 280s are better generally than 2 295's, but then I was reminded andy is using them for crunching then obviously 2 295s are better.

    why do you constantly say i'm trolling? is it because you think that quad SLI isn't broken?

    well I was originally just trying to give a word of friendly advice to a fellow member.... 2 gtx 280's does outperform a 295..... I didn't even say a nvidia is worse than ati or anything

    I will agree with you on that one.... you didnt have any Nvidia bashing it that post. so we can get this thread back on track with the WATER BLOCK for the GTX295

    I wonder if the Evga Back plate/cover will fit with the waterblock on, it should

    Why are people, and admins no less, taking this far off topic?
    I thought this thread was about waterblocks for the 295?

    Anyways, looking forward to Eddy's block.
    EK is, imho, by far the most attractive waterblocks.

    I'd say without seeing the DD offering yet, without question the Koolance is indeed as you say the sexiest yet...

    Depends on how you define attractive then I guess. For looks alone I agree, but I have seen no evidence that it also performs as good as it looks.

    I am not that concerned with form over function and would be happy enough with great performance, I currently have two EK blocks and they are stellar performers. I have never used Koolance so I can not really comment but they seem to be popular.
