Yea they do perform very much the same. I loved the look of my EK block though.

I don't like that you have to buy an extra connector to get the top/bot ports on the new EK blocks.

Yeah, that definitely sucks, I agree. Does anybody know if the older FC Bridge works with the new blocks?

Water cooler so nice.

Second block installed, all back in the case leak testing:



Up and running biggrin.gif




Temps are real nice, both cards mem/vrm almost identical, second cards core ~2*C hotter but its running slightly more voltage too. ~42-44*C core. 44*C mem, 50*C VRM after extended gaming.

The mem or mem controller on my new card was sensitive to heat, but I've now got both cards at +900 MHz (3911 MHz / 7822 MHz effective) running stable in games. 250 GB/s bandwidth, don't think they'll be bandwidth starved with that smile.gif
