    4770k Delidding Attempt

    I actually removed my IHS using a razor blade & a hammer, which is also a very quick way of doing it & safe if your gentle. Also I re-stuck the IHS back down with RTV silicone similar to this... http://www.abro.com/products/automotive/gasket-makers-and-sealants/?product=180 but black not grey...

    block for 290x

    An idea but I do like the standard EK copper blocks. They have always seemed to work well & look good. I still have a 4890 copper paperweight sitting about somewhere lol. I guess I might get something back for the 7970 block on ebay, with it fitting the 280 also. Plus the 7970 might get me...

    Existing EK-FC R9-290X Series Water Blocks Compatible with AMD Radeon R9 290

    If the standard ek 7970 block fits the 290 & the 290x block fits the 290. Would that not mean both blocks will work fine on all 3 cards? I don't see the point in laying out another £80 on a block that has the same layout. Then also have to eBay the older block.

    "NVIDIA is the Single Worst Company We've Ever Dealt With:" Linus Torvalds

    I don't really see how you construed that from my comment. I know what the girl in the video said & i was merely pointing out that people i know, that are also very intelligent in their specific computing area will try & argue that macs are a better choice over a pc. I think that has a...

    I agree. The comment you make about the girls question just reminds me of smart people trying to tell me that apple is the way to go :banghead:

    AMD Readies Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition

    in the uk the price diff is a fair amount. 7970 are around £370 & 680's are around £440. so for us the 7970 is a far better deal atm.
