[Solved/Failed] Help me find an original style EK 7970 waterblock ! :)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've just ordered another 7950 to crossfire with my current 7950. The 7950 I just ordered has the 7970 PCB so I need a 7970 block for it.

I have this old style EK block on my current 7950

http://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-fc7950.html

However the same style block for the 7970 is 'end of life'

http://www.ekwb.com/shop/eol/blocks/vga-blocks/full-cover-for-amd-radeon/radeon-hd-7xx0-series/ek-fc7970.html

I've looked through the usual shops but I can't find an original EK 7970 block in stock anywhere. I want to use crystal link between the cards so they need to be aligned which is why I need this block.

Any help ? :/

Edit: going to get a new style CSQ and hope with some fittings trickery I can use the crystal link

I think your only source is going to be the used market. I searched for about a week trying to find a old style EK 7970 with no luck.
