I have one buddy, however, I have heard mounting them on HD3870 X2's is not a wise choice. It is pretty difficult, and the holes don't line up 100% so there is going to be some bending, and pressure in places there shouldnt be. Your best bet is to invest in a nice EK block. They look amazing too.

I read that it can be difficult too. This guy put 'em on 2 MCW 60 on a 3870X2? - Page 4 - XtremeSystems Forums

I didnt really wanna lay out $150 for a block that can only be used on 1 card

I figured that 1 extra mcw60 plus heatsinks would be cheaper money wise. (I expect the rest of the cost would be in problems and frustration mounting it) :)

I also thought about dremeling out the original heat sink to fit the mcw60's on it so i would not need more heatsinks.
