    Yup. Wish they would have had stock for the I/O plate but I can wait until one of the U.S. vendors has one.

    Thanks. I have my 7970 that has shipped tonight but for the GPU blocks: Wow. That was fast...EK is out of stock on their site. No US sites has them apart PPC that is out of stock. FrozenCPU has shown out of stock also since Monday.

    @tiborrr: When is the next batch available and should I order from you directly or get one from the US/Canada retailers?

    Recieved mine today but waiting on a new angle compression to fit hopefully tommorow. Looks sweet but weighs a ton!

    Ordered a backplate too as apparantly it has some further cooling potential - glad EK caught on and set the backplates up so that they can be installed without removing the block - used to hate changing the backplates on me 5850's

    Block is amazing! At stock volts the card maxes out at 31C running the Heaven benchmark. At 1.3V it peaks at 38C. Thanks EK.

    Yo Tibs, don't want to be a pain, but is there any chance in the future that GPU blocks come with pre cut thermal pads?

    Labor in our country isn't cheap and since these products are 100% made in Slovenia I don't think so :P

    What happened with enjoying the building part?

    Got mine on Tuesday here in the UK, but didn't get round to fitting it yesterday.

    Couple of points to note tibbor about the installation guide

    A)- All thermal pads supplied were 0.5mm but the documentation referred to using the 1mm strips on the VRM's.
    B)- The term Phase regulator is used to described which pads need thermal paste adding to them - but there is no mention of this anywhere else so can get a bit confuzzling!

    Otherwise - Great job - I got 28Degrees C Idle and 38Degrees C under 3dmark test max. thats with a very hot room temperature

    Glad we can install the backplates without having to remove the block from the card! EK are learning
