I don't think the 37GB model is available anymore.

I like the EK since the barbs are offset from the center; it helps with the block orientation, especially in SLI.
Hm, I'll have to take a look at those. Thanks for the suggestions.

Appears that EK doesn't make any block that explicitly support the P5N-T Deluxe or the motherboard I posted above.

Well, I guess it's not really that much different either way.

I'd rather not go with plastic clamps. I'll probably pick up some smooth band bolts or preferably some self-tightening clamps (which look like the best to me).
