I am specifically looking for waterblocked cards, but I do have two Koolance reference version 1.1 waterblocks for 6970/6950s. Will your cards work with this waterblock? http://www.koolance.com/water-cooling/product_info.php?product_id=2021
To save on shipping/weight/etc., it would be awesome if you could remove the current cooling units. I won't need them.
I'm hoping for a win-win with someone who is getting out of mining and has liquid cooled kit that can be difficult to move on Craigslist. I'd like to save some money due to the heavy use of pre-owned mining cards and the fact that waterblocks are super-overpriced because of the low production volumes but they don't re-sell very well.
I think if I had a set of DWG/DXF files I could source and mill the waterblocks myself for a lot less. :-)
I'm ranting now, and as a software guy, I understand that the incremental costs are low but the up-front cost is high. The market is the market!
Sorry for misreading. My cards are not waterblocked. I don't know if they will work with your waterblocks or not.
I am in the SF bay area also. So we could meet up if you are interested.
