    I think, you should listen this guy, he's not very adequate.

    Shteud: as it later turned out, he had some gunking problems as well as he later posted. Still, DIY modding MCW80 in MCW80 style gave him +50% flow.

    Gabe,
    Any news about the blocks? The crossfire bridge will be available by the same time the blocks will?

    Thats excellent

    Could you please inform us about the variations of the CF Bridges to be readily available for these blocks? Serial / Parallel / 1 slot gap / 2 slot gap etc...

    Thank you!

    What was the final verdict on the backplates? Thanks for the reply! Glad I am holding out.

    Hello Gabe, I'd like to join in and jump on the 'Please can we have an Asus 7970 DCII (Top) version too pretty please!' bandwagon?
    You'd have another sale right here here once it comes out...

    Oh my.
    Just found this new on possible water block problem due to card layout difference
    http://www.ekwaterblocks.com/index.p...t01returnid=17

    Does anyone know if Swiftech has foreseen this layout change??
    Any feedback is much appreciated before I pull my trigger on a purchase.

    We already have 1mm clearance between the top of the caps and the housing in this area so we might not be affected; I contacted AMD to find out exactly how much taller this particular cap is. Production is arriving in the US in a couple of days. Depending on AMD's feed-back, and if necessary we can rework the production on our CNC's here before we release the block. This would only delay release by 2 to 3 days.

    these blocks ate single slot

    CF bridges are parallel only.

    We've also designed very short telescopic fittings that will allow users to link multiple cards with the standard bridge either in series or in parallel. ETA within a week or two.

    Sorry to say, but there isn't much progress on this front so far.

    Gabe,

    I am afraid that you have to proceed with this minor modification before releasing the blocks. The 1mm space you have is for safety reasons (minor bendings of the copper etc) so it would be nice for everyone to have at least that gap. Eventhough i do not have the part number EK refers to, it seems that its not only this partnumber that gets influenced. I posted the news here and quite a few people seem to have this taller cap:

    http://www.overclock.net/t/1196856/o...ners-club/6290

    Edit: The taller cap (2nd cap) can also be pink, not only blue, as shown in the thread link attached above!

    Even my official AMD contact was surprised by this... anyways, I am still waiting fro his feed-back for the exact height measurement.

    I vote for all too.

    Would this support the XFX 7970 Black Edition Overclocked?
    Not sure if they are reference PCB?

    Cool.

    I'd buy 2 to cool mine then. possible to have a video demo of how to install or is that asking for allot?
    I've never done GPU cooling before.

    Or is cooling AMD cards with water blocks a breeze?

    Actually if you can disassemble the stock cooler, you should be able to re-assemble the card with our water-block fairly easily. We also have a new system whereby you will re-use the existing AMD spring which takes a lot of guesswork out of the equation.

    Your forum (stephen) states that you have the blocks now, but waiting on quality control to clear them.
    Is this true and where will they be available for purchase first.

    Thanks Gabe.

    We are adding the clearance hole for the extra long cap, so we won't have any issues with the boards that feature this oddity.

    Taking pics, prepping the site, etc.. give it 72 hours :-)

    Gabe what do you mean amd spring???? Are yoi talking about the cross looking thing that comes up under the card and screws into the stock fan? If so I am in trouble as I tossed all those parts........

    Yes if you tossed these parts you cannot use our block. We can only use the stock cross-bracket retention.
