just finished installing both blocks

NCIX.com - Buy Ek Water Blocks EK-FC4890 CF Nickel Full Cover Radeon HD 4890 GPU Block G1/4 - No Barbs - 3830046993847 In Canada.

i have results

air cooled idle =60c load 80
water idle =30c load 37

overclocking has improved

both cards can run at 980/1150(water) on air they max out at 950/1100 (at 80 % fan speed) (holly shit LOUD!!:sad:)

its so much quieter now:thumb:

i will post pics soon

and benchmarks to fallow:clap:

I've got the PowerColor 4890 LCS which idles at 32C with a load temp of 40C

Hi... I'm hoping you'll still post some pics!
I'm also interested in that block... well, the acetal covered one.

If you decide to post some pics, could you please take some close shots of the memory and vrm's to see how well it fits them. I wonder, would it be possible to put ceramic paste instead of thermal tape?

I have the Koolance vid-487 and I got idle temps of 28C and load temps within the mid 30's

Hope it helps. That koolance block is a monster.

Swiftech also claims their 4870 block fits 4890.

Thanks!... but the blocks that you mentioned are not accessible to me. The only real shop that sells pc water cooling parts has only EK full cover blocks and that's why I'm interested in that model with the same vga card.
I wanted to see the clearance between the ram chips and vrm and the block's base.

Koolance blocks
1 Attachment(s)
I have the Koolance vid-487 block using the same pads that were on my old 4870. These are my idle temps and my room temp is 26c right now. Load temps are around 10c higher across the board. This is cooled by a swiftech 2.120 rad using two Noctua fans at 1/2 speed. My P35 Northbridge is also on the same loop but that is all. Noticed that my VDDCs get to 110c during fur mark so I reseated my block and now they only hit about 100c in furmark. There is something wrong but I can't figure it out.

Very strange, just ran Fallout 3 on ultra high settings at 1680x1050 and my GPU, mem and VDDC all stayed at about the same temps as idle (+/- 2 degrees). Does Furmark really push your card that much? I am going to load up Crysis and see what I get:

Crysis temps: GPU highest was about 47c, Mem about same and the highest VDDCs was 61c. All on high settings at 1680x1050. I guess Furmark REALLY pushes your video card more than any game will.
