watercooling 2900pro

how much of a diffrence would it make to get a full cover block over a single block would a single block deal with the heat of thi card these are the blocks im thinking of

Single blocks are usually better performing, and usually their flow-rate doesn't suffer as much as that of a full-cover waterblock. But the full-cover blocks do look extremely sweet...hence the reason many peeps use them

thats another £24. So thats nearly £80 for the full cover. This is why i didnt bother going crossfire with 2900xt's.

Why dont you get the D-Tek FuZion and use the stock heatsink with the plastic case and the heatpipes removed?

FuZion GFX is extremely restrictive to flow... better to get Swiftech MCW60 if going with that plan, which will outperform (on the GPU Core) all current fullcover blocks, and the majority of hybrids (Core Only block with heatplate such as Blastflow-Siberian & FuZion-Unisink)... other than the Swiftech Stealth, as that IS the MCW60 hybrid...

So, the choice if it were me would be between a Swiftech MCW60 with ramsinks, and Swiftech Stealth.
