I really hate the fact that it is still 2 slots. One of the biggest reasons I started going with full cover blocks is for the conversion to single slot. Would've been nice if they moved the top DVI to a dongle or something along those lines.

I'm tempted to sell my 470 w/ block and upgrade to this, as long as retail isn't ridiculously high.

yeah ati needs to switch newer rev pcb's to a dongle, wc blocks like this were originally made to use less space for more card availability with better temps

Yep. With it taking up 2 spaces, there is no point in going with a full cover block. Might as well go for the cheaper universal solution.
