    Something like this?...

    This would not lower weight much.
    And overall weight would not be so bug that you should be worried.

    If I'm looking at it correctly, the smaller blocks get first attached to the FC (while the cards itself are placed on the mobo) and then you just screw this block over the smaller blocks with the 6 screws (2 per piece) you can see on the photographs.

    Of course, I could be wrong...

    So the large block connects to the smaller blocks with the screws. And how is it sealed? Standard O-ring?

    We dont ahve 250 GTX block.
    But we would have to make new smaller part that would fit to all these 260/285/275/275GW blocks. The bug part would stay the same.
    For future blocks we'll try to keep the same dimensions so the smaller block would be as universal as possible.

    So he didnt copy HK.
    It looks similar and that's enough to warrant a different design, the first design sucks point blank.

    Good product here. Using dual cards, what about the spacing between cards, say SLI on a Classified means 3 slots spacing, on some other motherboards it's 1 or 2 slots... The different lengths in current SLI fittings avert this problem, to compete you would have to offer 3 different lengths (1 2 and 3 slots) for the dual version ...

    I like the last one, but is it possible to have the sides come flush with the vid card block inlet/outlet? or is that cutting it to close?

    Although it still looks a bit bulky, I really like the last design. Extremely useful for cases where the PSU is located at the bottom, usually meaning there is little space left there.

    Question for those who have blocks currently are the In/Out exactly the same place no matter your graphic's card?
    I am thinking about backwards compatibility to your current line up.

    The last one looks perfect!

    I could never see myself getting triple GPUs but definitely a dual in my future.

    Aren't the end ports on top and bottom kinda redundant, since you have the same port locations on the blocks themselves?

    (Not that I would be a user of the product (single card here)... just an observation.)

    The ports at the top and bottom have to be there as through there we are drilling hole deeper to connect the waterblocks flow.

    Eddie that last one is the money shot. I like it very much and it corrects the tube routing on the bottom which many people will like very much. I would like a double one now....

    Eddy, with a slight tweak, this can be made for both serial and parallel usage. If you drill both water paths all the way through the block and tap from each end to the blue lines, you can then make some POM/brass plugs (in the shape of set screws) that would stop at the end of the tapped holes to convert this to serial use.

    If a version of this is made from acrylic, the red arrow may be a point of concern. I would be worried about the bolt hole possibly intersecting with the water paths and leaking should the drill drift at all during machining. I had such a problem with an Alphacool top and it cost me 2 DDC's which I was not very pleased with.
