Corsair uses aluminum radiators with high fpi, you need high static, high rpm fans for decent cooling.

Can someone recommend a good 970 that takes a full coverage EK block? I'm currently running AMD and want to make the switch.

Well, I need an upgrade (currently running 7950's), I use Linux (I think Nvidia's drivers are better for this task) and I want to try something different.

Any of the EVGA ACX 2.0 cards have EK full coverage blocks. They're very good cards. There are others though. Find them here.

Thanks! I was leaning towards EVGA.

The drawback to the ACX 2.0 cards, is that they have very low power limits in the stock bios....so, make sure to get one with a dual bios. I recommend the FTW.

I still have the custom bios file I used for mine.

Interesting, so not all of the evga 970's have dual bios? I'll definitely keep that in mind. The FTW seems good. Thanks again for your time.
