Question Yo Daz

Trying to find a couple of full cover blocks for 2 Sapphire 7870 but can't find any. I like the EK so I can see the coolant through the plexi but there some sort of mod that needs to be done to accommodate them from what I've read at there site.

Any suggestions ?

Gigabyte Radeon HD 7870 OC 1100MHZ 2GB

You need to give more information on your 7870's as Saphire has 4 versions of that card.
First check it's serial number. If it's not ver 1.0 it's not reference PCB.

EK-FC7870 series block needs to be modded a bit to fit this card (plastic top must be cut at certain edges)
... according to the configurator page.

but as others will advise, this page is tricky to trust.

Yeah maybe, then I got to deal with heatsinks and a fan to cool it off...plus a pain for crossfire.
