please dont go with EK blocks. I have 2 for my 580s and one is already corroding after only a week. First there is a small stain then it spreads and now it has cracks. I would avoid it for now.

As Seeker said, the Aqua blocks are really nice. After my two EK blocks corroded, I switched to HK and like them as well

I've done some researching along with emailing EK and it seems they have done an extensive amount of research in fixing the problem with the Nickel plating. They sent me a full analysis report and other helpful links showing their research in the issue and advised that the new NE versions are electroless plated which is superior over their other plating technology. This seems to be the resolution to their previous issue. Has anyone here been using the new NE blocks?

You should do a search on the forums, there's plenty of threads on ek fail. Anything you get direct from ek is smoke.

I'm assuming you don't have the full Nickel versions?
