EK does make fullcover blocks for the DCII 570 and 580. Don't know if they fit on a DCII 560 but might be worth looking into if you watercool.
I don't plan on SLI'ing or watercooling.

What if I keep the voltage low. Do I still need those?

Need with low voltage? No. Would they still be a good thing to have even with low voltage? Yes. To give you an idea, this is all subjective but I personally wouldn't go above about 1.075v on a 560ti without VRM cooling, but with a good cooler and good VRM cooling I would feel okay up to 1.15v. Those numbers are only for average gaming usage, for 24/7 folding which is what I do you could probably knock 25mV off of each of those and that's what I would feel comfortable with for 24/7 load.

Get the 560 Ti Hawk instead, it has the Twin Frozr III cooler which has better fans and vrm cooling, it's louder but it's better. I just got the 570 with the TF3 and at idle (40% fan speed) I can't hear it at all.

Edit: oops sorry didn't see you said it's too expensive, I didn't know it was much more.

Hawk is 40€ more expensive than TFII.
