Well, before you install them, can you just move one up two spots and measure for me?

Get a pair of koolance 1 slot extensions like i did...They're fully adjustable.





They're like 10$ a piece and very practical....Here's a picture with them installed in one of my GTX580's

It's mostly for roadhog's setup since the cards will be so close together, so working the fittings and tubing when it's only maybe a little over 1 inch of space is a pain in the ass to begin with..



It's less of an issue in your case since your spacing allows more room to begin with...

I already have D-plugs I used on my 6970 blocks. I just want to know if I will need to order ones before the fact.

I can settle for the koolance blocks and using 2 more of those extensions, but what i'd really love would be the EK full cover versions and using their waterblock bridge + adapters like this:






Sleek looking to say the least and i'd also add another pump to the VGA loop as there's a fair amount of VGA blocks, fittings and radiators to go thru and using just a single pump for it all..

Got the koolance blocks on. Now I have to get my corsair AX 1200 watt power supply and the Fancy cables they just come out with to dress up the case a little. These babys are running at 25C right now, run cool. I have installed msi afterburner and ran them at 1125Mhz core and 1450 memory no problem. 3dmark 11 was 16,450 Damn these babys run alot faster than the 6970's I had in here in crossfire. I got to find a better place for my ssd's, soon as I get the new cables for the AX1200.
