Looks like it cools the PLX chip too. Do those even need cooling?

I'll most likely get a couple X2's eventually, hoping someone will release it with GDDR4 at some point and refresh the PCIe bridge to 2.0 - asking a bit too much d'you think?

Still, these have been the best blocks I've seen so far.

And some of the most expensive. While I like the third one, thats a bit of a price hike if you ask me. That translates to about $180 to about $210 USD depending on conversion rates.

Back here in Europe, Ek-Blocks are allways priced slightly beneath the corresponding Danger Den Parts.

crossfire and SLI only let you run a single monitor anyway.

Thats what makes it strange that this card even has two DVI ports, as crossfire is always on.
