The problem as I see it with full-cover waterblocks for gpus is that they only fit one type of card. They are pretty expensive as well, meaning you'll have to buy new ones every time you upgrade. Plus they reduce the flow-rate much more than a regular core-block. Love the fact that both camps have taken this into consideration when designing the cooling solutions for the 5850(the cooler on the 5870 must be hardmodded) and GTX 480.
