Default MCW60-R on a 6950, best way to cool rest of card?

I have a MCW60-R gpu block that works great and I would love to use it again on my HD 6950 but not sure whT i can use to cool the rest of the card. Up till now Ive always used a uni-sink for my cards along with it (used it on a 8800gtx and a gtx260).

Anyone have a suggetion?

Swiftech still makes uni-sinks for newer gen cards.

If you have good airflow in your case, you could save some cash and just get some mosfet/vram heatsinks.

I see that EKWB has a "full-cover" waterblock that is visually compatible with reference designed AMD HD6950 videocards EK-FC6970 - Radeon HD 6xx0 Series - Full Cover for AMD Radeon - VGA Blocks - Blocks
goes for about $113.70 (U.S.) or $112.55 (CAD)

Here's a quick link for compatibility CoolingConfigurator.com

if you hav the reference 6950.. i think you can leave the stock heatsink with the fan assembly. Im basing this on nvidia's 470,570,580 reference design...(so im not really sure)
