Need help in looking for and confirming a water block for 280x - Page 2

post #11 of 28

I see. I have 2 incoming and they both have a backplate installed already from powercolor. Would that backplate suffice or I have to get one from ek?

EK has a special layout for their screw holes. (Not all screw holes from the waterblock touch the backplate) Also the threading may be different compared to PC... At least that's what I have noticed... I have 290X though /w EK blocks.

not really... I thought I had that issue with the screws not fitting on my DC2 but it was my bad. you have to remove all the factory oring things and replace them with the supplied ones.

Just got the Powercolor cards I'm sad to say this might not be reference at all. EK cooling configurator says 7970CSQ will fit visually but there is those two tall caps or I don't know what they are by the HDMI port that differs from the reference version.

Here is the board pic(taken from ek) for mine



and here's the reference




Back of the EK CSQ 7970 Block




This card is getting obnoxious. Just why do they have to put those twin boxes in there frown.gif

visual means they plugged it into their cad program and measured to make sure it'd fit.

You can try to have EK install one on a card they have. They did that for someone recently
