i havent tried out any other brand of GFX blocks....

Any other suggestions ?

I believe Koolance makes decent FC blocks, but EK are the best.

Ek blocks.. great looking and less restrictive than most other blocks...worth every penny.

And link them with an ek parallel bridge...looks fab in a windowed 700D/800D

Here is a link to the Swiftech Universal Block, but as said above the EK are much better.

And here is the Koolance block.

Yes...EK blocks are worth the premium.

Except when the nickel flakes. On that note, there's the XSPC Razor 69xx blocks besides Koolance that's already mentioned.

The XSPC block is pretty darn affordable too. If Skinnee's GTX480 block roundup is any indicator, the Razor is pretty solid.

^^ This! I just bought 2 EK 6970 blocks and I can't find a bridge (would like one solid block with one input and one output).

Anyone know if they have one that fits?
