Better performence, but not better looking.

The EK blocks aren't full cover right? How can they perform better than a full block cover?

EK are full cover as they cover gpu/ram/mosfet, the hydro copper is prob a shroud at the ends, or sink of kinds. i would go the ek setup personally, but the beauty of this card is the warranty. as soon as you pull off the cooler and install your ek block its not covered by warranty
