Wanting to be 100% sure before ordering these blocks that they are the correct ver for my card. I have looked over them and they seem to be the right ones but this being the first WC system ive done i want to be 100% sure before purchasing the blocks. card vers http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/NVIDIA_Series/ENGTX5802DI1536MD5/ And the blocks i was looking at were

I have all brass and copper in my loop right now and i know nickle and copper are pretty close on the scale but wasn't sure if it would be acceptable to put a nickle plated block in rather then straight copper ?

thanks for any advice! will be greatly appreciated!

According to this:
http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/gpu_displays/asus_gtx580_sli_exclusive_review/1
that card is an Nvidia reference design so yes the blocks will fit fine.

Google for 'GTX580 heatsink removal' or the like for some how-to before you whip out the ol' screwdriver.

You shouldn't have any galvanic corrosion problem with either block. The copper one will cool slightly better (not much) but the nickel plated one wont tarnish over time like the copper will.
Personally I would go the copper block but thats just me.

And I wouldn't use a corrosion inhibiter additive, just distilled water and a silver kill coil and/or a copper sulfate biocide..
