    TUL Corporation, a leading manufacturer of AMD graphics cards, announces the world’s first liquid cooling solution for the HD6970 series. The PowerColor Liquid Cooling Solution (LCS) HD6970 2GB GDDR5 is once again working with renowned cooling manufacturer EKwaterblocks to bring the ultimate cooling solution to the HD6970. The offering aims to provide extraordinary thermal performance to enhance overclocking ability while allowing optimum system stability.

    The PowerColor LCS HD6970 has a full water block mounted on the card, fully covering the key components which can be dissipate the heat from the copper base design. This allows the reduction of GPU temperatures under 50°C even under full load. PowerColor packages a high-flow 3/8" and 1/2" fittings (barbs) to maximize water flow with captured o-rings to prevent leakage. Gamers can customize their own liquid cooling system using these two fittings.

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    yeah ati needs to switch newer rev pcb's to a dongle, wc blocks like this were originally made to use less space for more card availability with better temps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