Danger Den Ready with Radeon HD 4870 X2 Water-blocks

Fluid-cooling specialist Danger Den is ready with its Radeon HD 4870 X2 series water blocks designed to provide high-levels of thermal control to facilitate overclocking. The block provides full coverage cooling to the front part of the PCB that holds all the main components. The memory chips on the rear of the cards might still require passive cooling by means of heat-sinks.

that looks awesome, only problem i see is the fact that the water channels are offset from the two cores...

I agree, EKs is a bit more polished. Id like to see them come out with something to cool the memory, pwm and mosfets as well (or whatever they are called).

The DD block looks like a fish. I cant believe they continue to show picts of the back that emphasize its surface like that.

EK & Danger den both have solutions which cool the VRMs, memory and core...

i agree they need to work on there machining on the back i think ill run mine through a sander and smooth it out for better cooling. But its much better than the CoolIt water block...

I would imagine since its impossible for a full block to make contact with all the parts of the PCB anyways probably not much.

The thing that bugs me is its just not professional for a business to show a substandard finish like that (at least put a sticker on the surface to pretend to protect against scratches)

the source says they are samples fresh from the machines!

No where does it say this is the final released product!

Im not "worked up" I am just pointing out its sloppy business. (and that is coming from the most un business like person (me) on the web)

I wasnt pressing an arguement, I was just making sure that everyone realized they were still "samples" but looking at your latest pic, it may be becomming a trend of leaving all the hard machining intact!

tbh i like it- nice effect i think.
I like the look to an extent as well, but I feel the mating surfaces should/could be better.

If you look closely, that "effect" is on all the RAM IC blocks and where the GPU die makes contact.

@ MK how flat were the surfaces of the block you had pictured a few posts ago?

In the TPU review of one of their other full coverage blocks, the review mentioned that those machining marks aren't that visible to the naked eye. Only the camera picks them up. The blocks were still flat, and smooth.
