Will EK acetal blocks work with EK acrylic blocks? I assume they're the same other than the panel. I have someone selling an unlocked powercolor with EK block. But I have acrylic and he has acetal.

Do you mean having 2 cards, one with an acetal block and another one with an acrylic block? Sure, it works.

Managed to test the unlock on my XFX 290 that was assumed to be unlockable, according to hawaiinfo.
Attached benchmark screenshots, of before and after the unlock.

Before (290)

After (Unlocked 290)

Bought 2 from dabs.com, a UK retailer. They arrived last week.
Both unlockable, sold one to a forum member.
