I have let my brother test this card on his rig for the past 2 weeks,he didn't want to give it me back :)Its working fine,so thats checked that.
Have assembled the block,but i have a slight problem.:|I have posted in EK thread.here is link http://www.watercool...read.php?t=9193

Will wait and see what they say before finishing assembling block,Oh and it weighs a ton.Will have to check if my glass desktop can take the weight of this when finished.:)

Until next time ;)
