Yes you need to buy fittings.

My block came in a white box.:-(

You'll need some TIM, but EK included some with my CPU block so you may be good there. As for the fitting, I'm not too sure to be honest. For what its worth my EK cpu block did not come with fittings.

i should just think Thermal paste and some Barbs to connect it to your loop as it will come with Vram pads

Also im not too sure but you might need some plugs to block one side of the block that you wont be useing as the card will have 2 inlet and 2 outlet holes and will need to block one of each unless useing in SLI ?

Only the block, TIM and thermal pads. You need to buy the compression or barb fittings separately.

The only advice I can give is to prepare for some amazing temps.

Granted I'm on a 570, but I load at a whopping 44c, and I'm overclocked.
