you got a 4870x2? i got an EK block, copper/acrylic, very beautiful but a pita to install, and prone to shorting, this is what I ended up doing, has worked beautifully AND another ocn member contacted me about same issue, he ended up copying my fix to the tee, got a happy email from him that it worked immediately, he was ready to switch to a DD (those are really nice too), i suspect the EK 4870x2 block does not come w/ raisers and/or plastic screws or washers, unfortunately, i got mine thru ebay from a pc retailer selling overstock.
build update: my rig had been down for a whole day, psu was not powering on, thought i had another dead psu (my luck, would have been FOUR psu in less than a month), tested on my oem desktop, worked, removed one device from the psu and tested pwr up, ended up being sata pwr to dvd, bent the connector too much, res is close by and might have bent it when trying to fit to tuck it behind, lucky that had a couple of extra sata lines included w/ the psu, unfortunately had a major leak while wrestling with the psu, fixed and up and running,
