    If Danger Den water blocks aren't for your taste, EKWaterBlocks is here to offer an alternative. On the same date DD showed its GPU block for ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2, EKWaterBlocks also said it will have a full-cover water solution for HD 4870 X2 that weights nearly a kilo (970g) and will be available after 20.8.2008. Typically for EK, there'll be three models of the same block design:
    • EK-FC4870 X2 CF - made of electrolytic copper with acrylic glass top
    • EK-FC4870 X2 - CF Nickel - base is made of electrolytic copper brushed to look like nickel, top is made of quality acrylic glass
    • EK-FC4870 X2 - Acetal CF - same as the first, with the only difference being the top made out of quality POM acetal
    The prices for the three GPU water blocks are 109.96EUR, 119.50EUR and 114.95EUR respectively.

    It looks very close to the 3870X2 block. It is too bad that some minor board changes make the 3870x2 block incompatible.

    DD I think, Only half the GPU was covered by the water channel
