So here's the story, i ordered a evga gtx 580 ftw hydro copper2 last thursday off bestdirect.ca to finalize the parts i needed to build my water cooling set up. So yesterday i was wondering why my video card hasnt shippeed out yet so i emailed them and finally got my reply today, and they told me it was on back order, which really ******* pissed me off, because when i ordered it, there site send they had it in stock otherwise i would not of ordered off them. they have no idea when there getting more stock, so i replied saying i want a refund.

So i was looking around fro these hydro copper2 video cards and no one has them instock, so i was looking at aftermarket blocks and found the ek and bitspower blocks there pretty nice, not as nice as the evga ones imo, but nice.

My questions are, does putting these blocks on void your warranty, is it hard to do? also which block it better?

Get a normal gtx 580 and the ek wb. Its cheaper and better. Plus u get to keep the stock cooler if u want to sell or step up to 590 or somthing.
Edit: Generally ek is the better choice.
And about the warranty am sure evga doesnt void warranty when removing the heatsink/fan. Also msi and asus follow the same trend. Some1 correct me if i am wrong.
