Default gpu water block compatability

Need some help with finding the right water block for my vid card. I just picked up an HD7970 gigabyte v2.1 Just need to know how I can tell if the block will work or not before I order it.
Thanks.

this is the windforce edition btw.

welp everything is ordered... we picked up the card because it was the last one left. If we have to return it we will. This build is for someone else and we ordered the wc FC block from daz so if he has to buy another card from ncix to make it work that's what he'll do i guess.

Not my money and he doesn't want to wait.
