I agree, but remember in most cases you won't actually see the waterblock once it's mounted to the mobo. The back you will see however and that's completely covered.
The 6990 version though does have a full waterblock that completely covers the card.
Sorry I keep harping on about the 6990. Just really looking forward to that one.
