post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Anyone know if there is a water block available for this card I am considering?

Are there any reasons not to get this card?

The question was does anyone know of a water block being available for the specified card. I think this implies I want to water cool the card.

Although suggesting another card is ok, however I still am in the same boat as before. Is there a water block available for the card you suggested? I think I would prefer the 6970, although I am open to any and all suggestions, as long as they include info about a water block.

6970s are revision 2 cards now, so you'll want to do a visual check to confirm after getting the card. 6970s only come 1 of 2 ways, rev1 or rev2 so either way you are set for a block. <--That doesn't apply when you buy a full custom pcb like the MSI 6970 Lightning or Asus DCII.

As for blocks, Aquagcomputers 6970 Type 2 or ek 6970 V2 or bust.
