IIRC there is a difference between a full block and one of those "chip only, rest is cooled by alu" blocks. Not sure whether it would be a huge one mind, but I am sure I remember them being reviewed (just the acool blocks, as they were just blocks at the beginning) and whilst they were cheaper than a full cover block they weren't as good.

And yeah, once a card isn't top end any more the blocks go for a song.

If you ever ask me something and feel insulted by what I said back ask yourself this.. Would you rather I pretend and give you the answer that is expected, or, tell you how it really is?
