Default Dual liquid 4870's? Looking for blocks...

I'm looking for blocks that will link easily. Kind of like the way the Koolance blocks can almost plug right into each other.. -IIRC..

I'm thinking of picking up another 4870 1G pretty soon.. -Holiday prices and all..

Any of the full cover blocks should be able to "plug in" to each other, you just have to buy the right adapters.

Keep in mind that if you buy a new 4870 it's PCB will most likely be different than the one you currently have, so you will probably have to buy 2 different blocks.

What rad do you plan on using?

^ I found an identical card to the one I already have. I have a swiftech full cover block right now.. It should be pretty much the same.

I have a Swiftech 220 rad already.. I was just gonna plug everything to the circuit I already have.. I could use a 320 Rad, but this thing runs really cool here.. about 36* while gaming..

I'm running all 1/2" tubing also.. I want to assemble a dual loop system one of these days..

I'm confused... that block you posted is for a gtx285... lol

Would you be getting two new ones, so they both match?

This is what I would get, but that's just because I like EK. Koolance is still great though.

^ I know it's for a 295, but I wish they made it or the 4870.. That EK one looks nice.. And yeah, I'd have to replace both blocks..

Yeah the top one is for a 285 and the bottom is for 295... got me a little confused...

But anyways.. I'd go for that EK block.

You'll also want something like this to connect them:

Danger Den CrossSLI Fittings/Spacers Products Model: DD-CROSS-SLI-KIT [DD-CROSS-SLI-KIT] : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come

Not exactly sure if that's the right thing though... I think some D-plugs would work too.
