No, but I would add in an extra radiator if you're adding in the 4870x2. An MCR320 + MCR220 would do great.

Or just purchase a BIX 360 and all you need is one radiator...?

Full cover, I think, is better than just a regular GPU only block, but it only works for that specific card you bought it for.

If you plan to upgrade graphics cards in the future, get a regular GPU block unless you have deep pockets and can get full cover blocks for all your new cards. Regular GPU only blocks can work with all sorts of cards. All you need is RAMsinks for the RAM chips/VRM on the cards.

A core only block will outperform the full cover block by 3-5C. It is also a lot more versatile and can be used on a lot more cards.

Here's my suggestion:

Fuzion GFX V2

Iandh 4870 Heatsinks

oblivion.sky,

TnB= Gir's advice is the best I would give you as well. One big problem with full cover blocks is that you can't use it with any other card, so if you plan on upgrading, you'd have to buy more gear...

I personally have used just the gpu wb, I got the IandH sinks coming tomorrow, so I'm excited!
