Problem with Aquacomputer is demand for their products is really strong and they are a little slow to re-stock / manufacture at the moment.

Koolance CPU-370 is a great performing CPU block too and good looking with a good mounting system.

Swiftech Apogee XT II has great performance and looks too.

After owning all these I prefer the Aquacomputer gear.. it has a look and feel of quality that the others just dont quite measure up to plus some of the best performing gear.

Oh and Hardwarelabs for Rads!
Strongly agree. I will never buy an EK waterblock ever again.

Most of them are based on the REFERENCE revision 2 pcb and will take a version 2 waterblock. The custom jobs like the Windforce, Lightnings, DCII will of course not have support.

On topic, I will gladly use anything XSPC and I love them Aqua fullcovers.

Ugh this is making my head hurt. OK if I list certain ones I like can you tell me if it will or will not fit a standard reference waterblock?

I would not know about demand, but months ago when I was scoping for 6990 blocks their re-stock forecast was 100 days. Thank you for that, but I do not think so.

There are not many companies left, since:
-before mentioned problem (and their 4000/5000 are nothing that would overtake other's quality, finish or performance; I had one). no go
-you void warranty on Swiftech blocks immediately when opening them for inspection. no go
-you void warranty on Koolance blocks immediately when using any of other branded products in same loop. no go

And selection drops further when looking for complete package.

All those are version 2. They don't make version 1 6970s anymore! The HIS Iceq is horrendous looking omg, painful to behold. 2001 want's their cooler shroud back lol.

Which one the Ice Q Turbo? I don't like the look of it either but it doesn't matter if you were going to water cool it because the ugly cover and fan are coming off anyway. So all those listed above will have a pcb compatible to fit most reference type 6970 water blocks?

For the best gear it is constantly changing and is different for each application.

The thing to remember is that there really is no "Bad" water cooling gear...with the exception of those all-in-one kits with 1/4" inch hose and crap pumps.
