I posted a lot on this topic, that is regarding the fullcover *6950s. Basically ref 6950 2gb = 6970 waterblock, aka rev1/ver1 block. Non-ref or revised 6950 1/2gb = 6870 waterblock. Within the non-ref, the DCII, TF3, Lightning and Windforce are all full custon pcb so nothing fits them at all except a gpu only block.
Gpu only blocks are obviously very flexible, but they can lead to a path of false security. You spend a lot more energy on cooling the gpu and end up with the same air cooling on the vrms. Sometimes ppl even neglect the vrms and that can spell disaster. Anyways, if you do go gpu only be sure to pay attention to the vrm cooling, its just as important as the gpu.Edited by tsm106 - 2/13/12 at 10:36pm
