    can you take its internal pic?
    IMO, if it's a reference design PCB then I think the current 5870 blocks will fit with 2Gb version. The only different between 1Gb vs 2Gb reference card is the extra RAM on the back of the PCB.

    If that the case I would advise you to get EK or Koolance blocks because they allowed you to reuse stock backplate so you can use it as RAM heatspreader. BTW, EK do sell their own custom backplate as well. And if you use different than the above two blocks then you have to use aftermarket heatsinks for those extra RAMs.

  3. The following user thanks Deton For this above post:

    Card has factory cooling. No dice on pic. I will only use EK waterblocks for cooling a GPU. they are simply the best.

    Send EK an email and tell them your VGA specs and they will tell you if their block going to fit it or not.

    EK wants me to take photos of the card which is impossible. I am not removing stock cooler to do this. I don't understand why they do not do the leg work and ask the customer so a call to Koolance is in order. Sometimes I think companies get arrogant and forget about the customer. There is no need for the customer to do the legwork IMO.

    Nick at Koolance was excellent. He asked me to email the card number and the engineering team will get back tommorrow.

    because they are not going to spend $400 to get the 2Gb version to do physical test their blocks. They will do visual estimation here.

    I think I saw the internal pics some where, let me google.

    Point is Deton, Nick at Koolance was all over it. If I were part of either team, I would want the card in question listed as a compatable card. I would not have the customer take care of the neccesary legwork. I don't think this entails buying a card but never the less, Koolance is all over it.


    I emailed EK about making full cover water blocks for 790X and XTA boards when the were popular. The EK rep said it was a good idea and they would get back to me. 1 year later I still wait for a reply. I do not have confidence in them. That's to bad cause I wanted to get a full cover for my X58A mobo.

    ive always found EK to be quite responsive, you have to remember english is not there first language!! i had a major email session with them ytrying to order a nickel 4890 block and they couldnt understand a thing, i had to translate it and hope for the best hehe

    i like there blocks, have used them a few times i used to get a bit over eager and order direct rather than wait for any UK dist to get them in stock

    The thing for me in the UK with Koolance blocks is the premiuim i have to pay to get them imported or through one of the very few in Europe that sell them (then charge a premium)

    I agree with the quality. Love their blocks. The guy answered the phone in perfect english so that wasn't a problem at all:confused:

    My best bet that Koolance will say it's compatible, they have the revision of VID-587 block (VID-587T2). It has better water flow over VRMs and it's cost more than the V1 though. Don't forget to ask them about this block as well.

    He already told me about both but was checking with engineers is it is definitely compatable with card.

    Thanks Earth. I am assuming the block fits both cards(5879 and 5970) like in the past generations. My card has 6 fire wire slots. This card doesn't. I am 98% convinced.
