    EK crossfire DUAL bridge - will it fit?

    So, upgrade fever has got me looking at a second Radeon HD5870. In order to keep costs down a bit, a second hand card will be the most likely purchase. I already own a Sapphire reference model, cooled by an EK-FC5870 Acetal+Nickel. Sadly, most second hand cards I can get my hands on are non-ref.

    Assuming I buy a non-ref card, such as an XFX ZNFC, and mount an EK-PC5870 V2, will I still be able to use an EK CF DUAL bridge? Will there be any misallignment of the two water blocks that would make this impossible?

    Well, since nobody here seems to know for sure, I'm just gonna have to find out myself. I decided to buy the XFX, since it came at a nice price. I'll let you know if it all fits in due time.
