yeah that's exactly what i said. lol i'm not saying they aren't making money off of the waterblocks, i'm saying they will charge more cause the r&d for that block cost more. it's not the same as already having the pattern from the 6970 and just slicing off a layer. they are in the business of making money for many different reasons, but still in the business of making money none the less.
i could be very wrong with my price but 150-180 is what i'm calling it at.
