Looking for a good GPU block that fits the XFX 7970.

Dont know if you need details but it's the black edition double d.

I have D3 max out at 2560x1440, all settings ultra+ so to speak and my GPU runs about 50 Celsius when playing D3 and 33C when idling.

since it looks like reference card all other recent 7970 blocks must go (aqua, Swiftech, Koolance,...) too.
Thanks.

And, it looks pretty sweet

Yeah but Black Edition is not.. they even have special privileges on their website. Black Edition members only.

Black Edition is the reference design, the only thing to be aware about with the Swiftech Komodo is some HD 7970's have a taller capacitor that may short the card when the water block is installed, however this has been corrected by Swifttech.

...XFX has 4 7970s planned; half of which are using AMD's reference cooler, and the other half using XFX's twin fan Double Dissipation cooler. As is traditional with the first wave of customized cards, all of these cards are semi-custom as XFX is using AMD's reference PCB...
