HD7970 Water-block question.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have found a lot of conflicting information on my GPU and whether or certain blocks will work. I have a 7970 and the exact model is XFX Double D FX-797A-TDFC. However, many of these seem to be dual DVI, mine only has a single DVI slot.

I would love to put a full cover block on this if possible in comparison to a universal and heatsinks :|

Here's the sticker on the actual card..

You need to post a pic of the whole pcb and not a sticker. Anyways, judging by the color of the pcb it looks like their revised pcb which is not a good sign.

Finally got around to re-pasting the GPU and took pics of the PCB, as far as I can tell it looks reference when comparing to Google search results but would like to be reassured that a full cover would fit.
