    Hello people, the questions are rather simple, but I prefer to ask you for your expertise on these matters.

    I intend to get an HD 5970, and watercool it, now:

    Im undecided yet on wether to get the EK-FC5970 or the Danger Den DD-5970, nontheless, wichever I get, I would like (when possible) to crossfire them - so.... Are both blocks compatible with the EK watercool Watercool HEATKILLER GPU-X² ???

    And the second one:

    Is there somewhere available to buy a SINGLE PCI bracket for the HD 5970 ???
    If I water cool there's no point really on keeping the double PCI profile, and would love to get the extra PCI-E lane that otherwise would get blocked by the bracket.

    Thanks in advance.

    Distilled water is best. Especially if you don't want your block to stain green.

    As for your actual question re. blocks I'm confused what you are asking in terms of "compatible".

    The worst thing about dyes is the bacteria that eventually end up in your loop ( making it cloudy) will also die, and if left for a long time actually start to clog the inside of blocks ( I had to clean my D-tek fuzion as it was second hand, filled with red gunky shite)
