I just got a 4850x2 its a beast and since i got it for 200 bucks well that just makes it all the greater value :p. Anyway it gets kinda hot underload and the Stock cooler is terrible. I thought about taking off the Shroud and fans and zip tying a good 'ole san ace 110CFM fan on it but! Its Been a while since my rig has been under water and i think its time to go back.

Well anyway i dont think there are any full coverage blocks for this guy, so i was thinking of slapping 2 separate GPU blocks i dunno if it will take any modding or not.

Has anyone else done this ? If so what route didja go? Any Suggestions ( ive got a d5 vario and a BI360 may upgrade the rad tho) So im pretty set on everything except GPU blocks

really
I'm so gonna wait then lol. I mean 2 MCW60 is between 60-80 bucks depending on where you buy them and a pack of ramsinks is about 10-20 bucks depending on the item. So i would be willing to shell out like 110-120 for a full cover block just cause it would be so much sexier

EDIT : Anyone have any links to pictures of the block ? Or any articles about it?

If i don't turn the fan up to Max I will artifact in certain game's. i was gonna RMA it but from what i have seen is that my card just gets to hot with the standard fan profile. Full Cover block may not be necessary but! the cost of 2 blocks and ram sinks Is lets say $110 If i can get a full cover block for 120-140 Id rather have that.
