    They'll be coming, top cards always get priority though. EK said on FB that one of their 670 blocks actually fits the 970 (not sure which version tho), so there is always that too. 970 is so low power though there may not be many who make blocks for it.

    There's some 670 compatibility talk here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1514042/g...k-on-a-gtx-970

    Personally I would buy a short PCB GTX970 and use an EK Thermosphere. They look awesome and I doubt the VRMs run hot enough to require anything besides a simple heatsink.

    I run water cooling to keep my rig nice and silent.

    A pic of a Thermosphere for reference. There are some GTX970s that have a short PCB like my GTX650Ti Boost. A GTX970 doesn't pull much more power and a similar heatsink for the VRMs should work.

    VRAM doesn't really require cooling these days. It doesn't even run warm.

    There is the Watercool HEATKILLER? GPU-X? GTX 970, but you have to check if your card uses a reference pcb layout.
