Default EK 7970 lightning waterblock

So it finally went on sale at ek, and was sold out in about an hour:(

it is of course the only thing i have been waiting on to get back in the water cooling game, i have all the fittings, rads, cpu and southbridge/vreg blocks, everything but this.

so my real question, they said a reseller probably bought them all up, who is most likely to have it for sale?

by that i mean who do you recommend as a canadian that i buy from?

i know ek is not very good and i am only getting this one because they are the only ones making a 7970 lightning block:(

the rest of my waterblocks are heatkiller that i got from sidewinder.com, nice guys btw.

I was in the same boat as you (for my last gen asus card) but as for what resaler most likely bought them up its hard to say. I would check Dazmode.com, frozen cpu is another one I hear about all the time on this site and then of course EK themselves if all else fails. Hope this helped

I know Aqua is working on a 680 lightning block, might be worth emailing shoggy to see if they're thinking about a 7970 lightning one.

Performance PC's generally gets their EK blocks quickly. But expected to be raped when it comes to shipping.

You also pay taxes and fees. You'll never get charged duty. There shipping time is about 3-5 days versus 10-20 when you order from the USA.

So ek shipped it already it looks like, so the things i ordered first (a bunch of fittings) are well over a week away still, and the stuff i ordered last and where not even built yet is going to get here first:(
