yep, pretty much that. its not that i hate the design, its just that it requires the whole theme to be that design (i.e. but more EK products)

but i think that it is possible to get a single frosted acrylic block without making it too horrible (actually pretty if done right, like the quote below))

So you have to have a full bank account in order to be a watercooler in their eyes. No wonder there are rumors that he's not plush. Maybe if he used some common sense, EK would be better off. mellowsmiley.gif

No reason to fully end a production run unless the Card/board/CPU is more than 2 generations past. Slowing production to a crawl is better than slamming the brakes on and discouraging n00bs on a budget from buying their products. I don't expect any company to break their backs at their own expense to the detriment of their business but there are ways to make most everyone happy when properly applied. smile.gif

The 68** cards wasnt very well supported from the start,i couldnt get a pair of full covers for my 6870 DCII's
Try liquid Extacy,they tend to support older cards.

i couldn't agree with you more on this. it is quite annoying that you need to plan your loop before you plan your build. and I've only seen that recently EK released a new (though limited edition iirc) 6970 blok (which wasn't crop circle) but other than that nothing. (but EK isn't the only one who stops support for older parts, though they are the fastest to do so)

but on a different note, i must give it to EK for the frosted acrylic effect even if its crop circles. (though some might say it is meant to hide something rolleyes.gif )

lets see how accurate alphacool is on their compatibility list is tongue.gif . maybe they meant 7950/70 ref pcb compatible who knows? (though unfortunately by the installation guide it becomes clear that it was made specifically to the 7950 ref VRMs location and chokes)
(and i don't think that a single slot is necessary, though i can understand why)
also, you are lucky. if i were to order what you have ordered now it would cost me at least 5 times more and i'd have to wait at least twice as long. (plus a possible 17% tax frown.gif )

Yes, my card is on the compatibility list!

11196-10-40G <- it uses 7970 reference

the list is divided to 3 parts (from left to right): 1st is the V2 bock compatibility list, 2nd is the V1 and 3rd is the 6950/70 compatibility list. the 1196-10-40 (7970 pcb) card is on the V1 list while the 1196-00-40 (ref 7950) is on the V2 part. thouh i'd love to be wrong or that the entire list is for the V2.

It is meant to hide something, namely an UGLY INTERNAL MECHANISM-but dont take my word for it, look at this vid from an EK sponsored Case Modder wink.gif
