Do you have separate loops for them? My temperatures wont be directly comparable, as I only have one card, and the water running through it will be the water from coming from the core, which will be running quite warm. Im probably going to salvage the ramsinks and place them on the back of the card anyways, so Ill have the EK block with the ramsinks on the back of the card. I ordered it from jab-tech, and it took only a half hour from my order for them to complete my order and get me a tracking number. VERY fast processing. Hopefully it'll get here fast too, I go back to school next weekend

Ok well I just got my EK block, and MY GOD is this thing heavy. The block itself weighs more than the stock cooler for the R600! Hopefully that means it cools better too! Ill get pictures up later, need to buy some birthday presents I havent seen anyone else with this card, think im the first on the forum?

Ok, Ive run into a slight problem. Its obvious that the nozzles work best in one direction: down. I cant screw them in facing up, so both have to be facing downwards. This poses an issue, as my CPU block is above the graphics card. This means I need to go from the pump, to the chip, go under the card to come up to the card, then go out to the radiator, which will be the easiest part. Any idea how to make this look decent?I thought about splitting the flow, but I have one T-line, and several elbows. Not the hardware to do a split flow. I wanted to do this with as little hose as possible, but now that seems to have changed. The best idea I can come up with is to make a swooping curve from the chip to the underside of the card, or just use 2 elbows to get it in the correct direction, as much as I hate that option. Ideas? suggestions?
