I don't think it will work because of how they are sandwhich together.you might can rig it some way to work.

At the moment there are no after market coolers for the 9750 cards.

While at E3 Coolit was showing a self contained setup called Ice hawk that can cool two 7900GTX GPUs.

You will notice they only had one GPU installed to show the customer what it looked like.

In the back of their booth, they had this same setup but with 4 heads cooling dual 7950s from Dell. Their water blocks fit nicely between the sandwiched cards.

They said it should be available in 60 days (from E3). I am waiting on this for my cards.

PS don't know when the dual 7950 coolers will be released

forgot to mention these are not simply coolers but chill the water as well.

You do not have to worry about condensation either

i dont think therell be aftermarket coolers for the 7950's, do you understand to get the cooler on both cards that youd have to seperate the boards and put them back together.

yea I will be satisfied just popping a cooler on just 1 card.
So do you think the tidewater will fit?
