If you were to buy comparable parts separately this is what you would be spending, and does not include the time spent installing the waterblocks. EK makes great blocks, and I have used a few in the past, but the installation can be a pain since the stand-offs are not milled into the block. Not a huge deal, but it is a factor to consider.

*All Prices in USD.

EVGA GeForce GTX 580 Superclocked - $519

EK 580 GTX VGA Liquid Cooling Block - Nickel + Acetal (EK-FC580 GTX Nickel + Acetal) - $113

Single Slot GTX 580/480 Bracket - $10

EVGA GTX 580 Backplate - $20

Total = $662

So for $699 (only $37 more) you can get a card that comes with even higher factory clocks (ships @ 850MHz, but I have already hit 950MHz with this card, benchmark stable), has a great looking waterblock (yes I like the LED backlit EVGA symbol too), that is already installed on the card. For me it was a no-brainer. I like the look of the cards, and they give me everything I wanted performance wise.
No worries dude, my problem is im in Australia and they are $950. I want to get them from American and get them shipped over because I wanted three or four of them, but I cant find ANYWHERE that ships to Australia.
Does anybody know anywhere that mite ship here?(that has the hydro copper)
Getting it here will be 250 extra per card..... Please help!

580 for around 499 USD, Block for about 99USD = ~599USD, that looks like about 100USD mark up to me @699USD.

Edit: As far as that other stuff it is junk and the OEM waterblocks usually do the worse job at actually cooling the card, unless its Powercolor which just uses EK blocks anyway.
