Why not go for that? 75$ can, less shipping

Be careful - that block doesn't have recessed screws. My own DD block is like that, and despite being marketed as a "single-slot solution", I wouldn't dare have a card immediately below it that had exposed metal contacts.

I have a aqua block on my gtx 260 vid card and it does pretty good , never leaked and cools really well :)
That being said it is a heavy block(mine is a full cover)
and it makes the end of my card droop so i had to use a brce to hold the end of card up (PIA) but all in all irts a great full cover block:)

the block is only 500g apparently...

Its too bad NCIX doesn't carry those xspc ones for 70 bucks, I'd much rather have those.
