If however AMD supplied some cards to those companies ahead of time so that they could get the blocks done by the time the cards hit retail on january 9th, i'll buy them on the spot.

Or the third and final option is one of the major brands that carry AMD cards releases a water cooled version off the bat...Wichever happends first is the winner basically.
You could save yourself a lot of time if you simply researched all your assumptions before. If you did you would see those companies already have blocks designed.
