Yep, like the title says.... EK now has some 7970 blocks up on their site in stock. Just ordered a Copper/Acetel one. (Not about to deal with the nickle plating nightmare)

Link to EK 7970 Gear...

http://www.ekwaterblocks.com/shop/catalogsearch/result/?q=7970&x=0&y=0

Ended up costing me $123 Shipped to the States w/ 3 day DHL. This total price is cheaper than the price of the block alone on Frozen CPU!

Was going to wait for the acetal/EN but needed the block by the 18th. Nothing quite like international priority air.

The card will never see air.

No idea really. All I know is I'll never buy ek nickel plated products again after all the corrosion issues I've had to deal with, then they were still selling old stock and calling them EN when they really weren't. I'm sticking with straight copper from here on out.

Stocking up, my cards have not arrived. Hopefully both orders will get here before Feb.

It's very quick, in around 3 days it should be at your doorstep.
