    andyuk1 to answer your question. There will be separate blocks available. Also I know EVGA is releasing a ForTheWin edition of their 480 & 470 cards. Overclocked & with a water block already fitted.

    Not sure if OcUK are getting these in or not

    EVGA have wattercooled Fermi's, details on their site. Also Koolance, Dangerden, Inno3D and EK all have blocks for Fermi. Just check out all their websites for details.

    Its always cheaper to buy a stock card and put your own waterblock on, rather than buy a card which already has a block on.

    Thanks andy. :)

    Only put the Tim on the actual card, you dont need to apply it to the block. Once you have installed the block remove it to make sure all chips have made contact, reapply it and then your good to go. :)

    There will be some watercooled ones available soon, after spending £400+ it's probably not a good idea to void the warranty fitting a waterblock.

    Buy an EVGA card and the warranty covers removing the stock cooler.

    If you buy an EVGA card the warranty allows the removal of the cooler.

    Watercooled cards normally sell for about £200 more.
