I'm sure it's fine- read an article somewhere recently that said that once you go above bottom-of-the-line, there's not much to worry about anymore for flatness due to more precise maunfacturing

The swiftech blocks make my Tt blocks look cheap, and the swiftech installs so much easier. With socket 939 you don't even have to remove the motherboard. The gpu blocks also fit better.

You couldn't be more wrong. THe stock ATI coolers are actually very good once you turn up the fan speed. They are also the only stock cooler to exhaust out the back. If you can take the noise, running them @ 100% will get you the same results as the best aftermarket air coolers. ATI just runs the fans at crazy low levels for sound issues.

If you haven't yet, get some heatsinks on the Vregs on those cards and rig up a fan to blow over that area of those cards. The Vregs will get quite toasty if you don't.
