    and just getting an extra VGA block for his 4870x2 because he rather have something that will work on many different types of GPU then get a full block that works on only one and one only.

    You'll need a full cover block for the 4870x2 TRUST ME! I have one and its insanely hot even at idle.
    The onboard crossfire chip between the two GPU's gets very very hot, so two GPU blocks and ram sinks wont cut it, theres not enough space to fit an additional block on the crossfire chip, theres also ram on the back of the card as well as the front, the ram's also nuclear.
    Check out EK waterblocks, they have released a full cover block for the 4870x2 with blocks to cover the ram on the back but trying to get hold of one is like trying to find rocking horse sh**. Ive got one on pre-order.

    Agreed. Good build there, watch the temps on the X2, a full block is the way to go.

    As for the case, it's very nice, no question. But overpriced. You can get an awesome Lian-Li case for less money than that and every bit as good. I highly recommend the A-71, absolutely top notch and you can get an optional top panel that is already pre-cut for 240mm rad.

    TJ10 will fits interally one 120.2 rad at top with rad bracket needed and one 120.1 at back exhaust and mid fans.

    A full cover VGA block is much easy to install for dual GPU card than the MCW60 and I don't think two MCW60 will fit the 4870X2 though. Yes you do need RAM sinks kit when you use MCW60 and if you insist to use the universal VGA block then you might wait around for Swiftech releases a new version of MCW60. The rumor saying they are working on a new design at the moement.

    Yeah I was looking at the EK full block earlier today for the 4870x2, I just gotta see what he wants to do but IMHO I would go the full block way too.
    How many full blocks are out at this time so far, I've only seen the Koolance nickel block, EK copper block, and the CoolIT block (but thats not out yet)

    I'm going to be changing up the Watercooling hardware, I will post it up in a bit. Thanks you for all your opinions =]

    P.S.
    Also based on a swiftech watercooling build, what would be the best size for the tubing 1/4 or 3/8?

    I've got a CM-Stacker, and am considering a water cooling setup. Currently using 6 of the 5.25 bays for current stuff saving 3 more for future hard drives, bottom two will be where the pump sits with the resevoir right behind it, the radiator will hang off the rear 120mm fan bracket with some kinda shroud. Of course now I need the money to implement this, but it's definately do able with lots of space to spare.
