Why oh WHY does everyone like to toss around that 480 block comparison? and what issue? This aint even my thread.... What are you smoking? Give me some please...

Well not everyone likes EK looks, I chose BP blocks because I wanted that look for a specific build, and also if everyone just looked at charts and purchased EK, the rest of the other companies won't make blocks anymore now would they.. and lets not forget their customer service is.... lets leave it at that...

Another is when I bought those blocks, I didn't have to pay for shipping, BP is a local company where I am at, also this was around the time when the whole EK Nickel plating fiasco started... I would've went EK if it wasn't for that... Aqua Computer (blocks I am using now) did not have their blocks at that period..

Why would someone want to buy from a seller overseas? not the point.. go read my post carefully and it'll show that I don't like dealing 2nd hand stuff overseas period, since I don't want the hassle of providing support afterwards... I don't only have those blocks, was just using it as an example, I have at least 10 pairs of Koolance Quick Disconnects, 50+ vary bitspower barbs, couple of D5 dual tops, eh I even have a Gigabyte G1 Assasin & a 1200w silverstone PSU laying around... I don't want to sell it as they aren't worth much in my eyes, I don't want to provide support afterwards, it's just way too time consuming to pack, ship, insure... easier if I just kept it and if my friend comes by and wants them, I usually just let them take it for the cost of pizza and some beers... That was my point...

Not everyone likes to deal with Haggling nannies in the forsale section...

This is what I have in mine... I need the 2.4" spacing on my board, yours is probably the standard 1.6".

http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_971_1018_1039&products_id=32162

The pictures on that page show pretty clearly that this is not an ugly setup and the GPU block is reusable with adapters, which usually come with the aluminum heatsinks by the way.

I have 2 slots in between them, thus the need for the 2.4" SLI block. It looks like yours is the standard 1.6" SLI block.

Yea, you're gonna need a dual bridge. Worse case, grab a ruler.

Nope, standard barbs. I did need a 90° angle barb fitting at the bottom of my SLI block because my tubing would have jammed against the top of my power supply.

Here's a list of the fittings/connectors I needed to get the SLI block connected to my GPU blocks.

4 of these to extend from my GPU block towards the SLI block. You can use the 30mm ones but there will be less finger room and I have big fingers. biggrin.gif

4 of these to connect that extender into the SLI block. It revolves so you can tighten both sides.
