That's the HD4870s PCB vs. the HD4890s PCB.

Looks like it won't fit.


Oh, and the mounting holes are the same, but the layout of the components (mainly the caps on the right hand side) are different.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. D:

Will this block fit this card?

I'm sure the OP appreciated this highly helpful and informative post...

That was my whole point. If the title is not actually accurate/useful, then people who know about the subject won't bother with it, and people who want to help but don't know what it's about and check it out won't be able to help because they don't know about the topic.

As such, an accurate title would not only benefit the OP, but also anyone who is looking to help in certain areas of expertise. If OPs of threads titled like this aren't made aware of how to make a title, they should be made aware, thus my comment.

Well, basically, it's thread-crapping. Instead of providing valuable input to the question asked in the OP, you just bashed on the title.

That's just the way I see it.

You're better off keeping what you said in your first post to PMs mate.
