EK 7970 CSQ help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey there,
I recently purchased an EK 7970 CSQ Copper & Plexi.
It has just come to my attention that I might required an additional piece to get top-ports on the card for water inputs.


Is that so?

Do the new CSQ blocks come with just the downward facing ports useable?

Yes, 7970 CSQ has only plastic side top usable. Newer blocks (such as Titan, 7990, GTX 770, ... as well as the upcoming 8970) have the ports on both sides, like this:

Ah, okay!

Thanks for the response. I just ordered the extra piece.
I'll have one excruciating day to wait, block in hand for the extra piece smile.gif

You could use a 90° fitting (adapter) instead of that piece but that's up to you smile.gif
