If only the full EK waterblock solution didnt cost ~$400...
You can get a ek full cover block and a couple barbs shipped to you for ~140 in the USA. I haven't spotted a backplate in a us etailer yet, but if newegg ever releases the asus 290x ill be picking up the nickel block (already have plenty of barbs) and waiting till the back plates show up in the US to grab one of them. (I'd rather play with my clocks now and deal with aesthetics down the road than wait for shipping from ekwb)
