Default ETA for AMD 6950/6970 Full Coverage Waterblocks?

Hi, I was just wondering if full coverage waterblocks for AMD's 6950's and 6970's are coming out soon. Can't seem to find any conclusive info on this.

Thanks.

Pretty sure both EK and Koolance have blocks being shipped out to retailers currently. Or if not currently will be happening within a few days.

Thanks for the info. The 6950 to 6970 BIOS Flash really interests me, but I saw that temperatures were fairly high. If I do decide to pick one up, I would definitely opt for a full coverage waterblock.

I'm looking at the Sapphire 6950. On the TechPowerUp unlocking guide, the Sapphire cards are 9 for 9 in successful unlocks, though this number depends on how many people submitted results. Opinions?

They're all currently reference cards made at the same factory, so it really doesn't matter.

True except that XFX now adds those stupid void warranty if removed stickers on their heatsink fan screws.
