Problem with full cover blocks is that they won't work with many other gpus and would be harder to sell off down the road. Plus they cost about $60 more which can go towards a 655 pump.

If you can file the 4 knobs on the corners of the unisink, it should be fine. That's what I believe is need on the mcw-80.

^It's true, I jumped on the same deal, and bought a mcw80 like 2 days later, I also got a replacement heatsink w/ it because it was $8 more than just the mcw82.

I got the wrong bracket w/ mine, so i emailed Gabe over at swiftech, and they are sending me the updated rev2 bracket. After talking to him I decided to send in my mcw80 to get it machined for mcw82 design spec. Allows better waterflow similar to the mcw60. All i have to do is pay to ship it back and forth to swiftech, USPS so it's not too bad, but I will have to wait.

type mcw80 followed by gtx 470 into google and go to the first link, I'd just link to it for you, but I"m not sure if I'm suppposed to link to other forums..I haven't read the TOS. there is a guy that did exactly what you are trying to do w/ a mcw80. I'm sure you could manage to do the same w/ the xspc block if you get that one too.

If you don't want to try the conventional method by getting a full cover block, this is a cool alternative.

You can always keep an eye out for a used one. I just sold two of them yesterday.
I just bought an xspc rasa gpu block a few days ago and the base of it actually protrudes from the mounting arms about 1/8". It should be fine.

Wow. Now that is what I'm talking about.

That would make things so much easier. Sure beats spending $200 and up on a watercooling system just to cool the gpu any way.

Honestly I never understood why Corsair doesn't take the initiative and provide brackets with these so that you can install them on the popular gpus.
