Question is this V2 design?

Hi all,

First picture I've got from coolingconfigurator.com site. Second is my own HIS 6970 PCB design.

The only difference that I can see are the caps along the "square-shaped" components.
Secondly, two caps near the power connectors, and
Thirdly, the caps in the lower-right corner.

Is my card's PCB an V2 design? I'm trying to get the right waterblock for it.

Thank you.

Unless I am mistaken, the top pic is a reference design.

I know the top one is the reference design...The second pic is what I'm interested in...is it the V2 design? I need to get the right waterblock for it.

The coolingconfigurator.com is no help.

Dang thing is...None of the watercooling store is here in Edmonton.
I don't want to waste money just to buy a block, and find out didn't work later, "poof!" money well spent

If you are looking for a full cover block, it won't fit due to the location of the capacitors. There is no real "V2" design as every board partner is free to build their own designs as long as they stay within the minimum specification limits AMD sets out in their design documents.

Emailed Daz with pic and he said no clue.

After I've searched all over the 'Net finally found something...Mine is the top one.

What do you guys think? From Coolingconfigurator.com, the V2 from Powercolor...all the caps matched with mine.
