    XSPC is finally ready with a full-coverage water block for AMD Radeon HD 7970 and HD 7950 graphics cards (AMD reference PCB). The block is design to keep the card within the size specs. of a single expansion slot, while providing liquid cooling to all hot components on the obverse side of the PCB, including the GPU, the 12 GDDR5 memory chips, and the VRM. Measuring 220 x 142 x 9 mm (18 mm at ports), the main portion of the block is milled out of a block of copper, while the portion over the VRM is milled out of aluminum.

    The portion of the block that's over the GPU is ridged, making copper micro-fins, that increase dissipation of heat to the coolant. The top is made of CNC-cut stainless steel. The block is ready for CrossFire setups with four G1/4″ ports, two G1/4″ plugs are included. Listed on the company's online store (currently out of stock), the XSPC Razor 7970 is priced at £82.67 (US $131).

    why is it still dual slot. Is there a way to remove the dual slot bracket and replace it with single slot ones

    XSPC blocks are usually the cheapest; so imagine the competition prices.

    if all the connectors are in one slot then I imagine it wouldn't hurt to hack off the other side of the bracket.

    as to why the dual slot is there in the first place, it is the reference design

    Yes, EK makes a single slot bracket.

    The EK block is cheaper and works great!
