Below is the link, will be interesting to see how the GTX 670 looks with the water block installed.

The water blocks will be readily available on June 27th (EK-FC670 GTX) and June 29th (EK-FC690 GTX).

Yeah, really annoyed about this!

They finally release the blocks for my 670s, and they are a crappy design, and also come with the EK GeForce link (to link multiple cards for watercooling) which previously had to be bought separately which I have already bought, and they are more expensive than 680 blocks.

Just release them already and take my money.

Hahah, i've been waiting to see watercooled reference versions of the 670, I think they will look awesome.

If I was in the market for a top I'd still buy EK even with these designs because the performance and prices are very competitive but this design isn't their best.

I wrote in the other thread about how much of a fail these blocks are, but seriously, not having holes/ports on both sides is such a massive pain in the arse!

Yes, they supply the block so you can have them pointing out of the side, but then you've still got to get two 90 degree fittings, instead of the simple "barb either side" setup they've always been able to do.
