This is actually my first time trying to put together a water cooling system for my computer. Here is the problem I am having... I ordered a Sapphire HD 6970 and the Heatkiller Water block. The dilemma is as the title obviously states, it does not fit.
The exact graphics card I got is as follows: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004PFVNIY/ref=oh_o06_s00_i00_details
The exact water block I got is as follows: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_971_240_578&products_id=30417
I have also provided pictures to help display the problems that I am having.

I'm not sure if this is a compatibility issue that I didn't look at with the water block. Or if the 6970 is not the right revision. I would really appreciate any help that ya'll may have. Thank you all for your time.
