I run my own tests and I was disappointed with MCR line.

Well I'll give it a go and see the temps I get..

Guys, things don't seem to coping with me.. I installed the EK block on the 4870 for a test, and seemed to have a warp.. I didn't overtighten the screws, I only tightened all screws by one increment.

Here's a picture, it was hard getting a picture, so I took this one which you can see towards the end, the card seems to bend a little..

Any idea what am I doing wrong, or what I should do to solve this.. Thanks.

I'm no expert on this, but that looks ok to me. I've had 2 cards like that, I put them in and they were fine.

I think you're ok. You should have seen the kink I had with my 4870 and XSPC block.

I didn't actually.. I know I sort of felt that since it's on the end of the board where the block ends, so I might be safe.. but I thought of being of the safe side and checking here..

As for loop routing, the only change I should make is to go from intake cpu to outlet gpu and intake gpu to out outlet res..
I guess just like the rad, the intake and outlet ports on the gpu block doesn't mater, correct?

On that particular block you're using, the orientation doesn't matter.

Sorry but my MCR220 with 2 generic fans kept my e8600 @ 4.6ghz and above in the low 60s under load and that was pumping learning 1.5v through it.
