Who We Recommend
EK-FC7870 Nickel is a high performance full-cover water block for AMD reference design Radeon HD 7870 and -7850 graphics card. Please check our Cooling Configurator online compatibility system for detailed compatibility list!
This water block directly cools the GPU and RAM as water flows directly over these critical areas thus allowing the graphics card and it's VRM (passively cooled) to remain stable under high overclocks. EK-FC7870 water block also features a very high flow design therefore it can be easily used in liquid cooling systems using weaker water pumps.
Base is made of nickel plated electrolytic copper while the top is made of quality cast satin finish acrylic material. The sealing is performed by quality rubber washers. Screw-in brass standoffs are pre-installed and allow for safe, painless installation procedure. Block is mounted with enclosed M3x4 DIN7985 screws.
EKWB recommends the purchase of aesthetic retention backplate (EK-FC7870 Backplate - Black) which improves the looks of your graphics cards and also provide some passive cooling to the VRM section.
Up to four EK-FC7870 series water block can be interconnected with EK-FC Bridge & Link system. The correct connection link for this water block is EK-FC Link.

Does not fit all XFX Double D FX-787A-CDFC05-14-2014
Ordered two for my crossfired XFX 7870''s (after I finally got a second one with the right core). Turns out there are different revisions. ''VA.2'' fits, ''VJ.0'' does not. Had to play the ebay game to buy and sell cards to get this to work. I''m surprised this isn''t more documented. Had an issue with some o-rings not sitting properly. Reset them and the block and bridge works great so far!
ASUS - HD7870-DC2-2GD5-V2 Direct CU II04-06-2014
I made a visual inspection of my cards, and found that this block will not be compatible. The compatibility list shows that the DC2-2GD5 was visually compatible, however, the -V2 definitely will not. I did not purchase, so I have no Customer Service issues, just a heads up to other shoppers.

Like everyone says at the beginning, make your research about the compatibility, I made my research and realize my Gigabyte 7870 GHZ edition doesn''t fit the block, but continue with my investigation realize that with some modding to the block it can fit, so I also purchase my dremel to mod the block and now I can fit it to my cards, great temps with this block and oc.

I have reference diamond 7870''s, the block fir perfectly, I am waiting a little for the TIM to set before pushing it. For first time water-cooling video cards it worked great, everything in the box. I emailed frozencpu tech support to get the right crossfire bridge connector. RIVE mobo has triple spacing!!!!

Same as the previous reviewer. This block does not fit my brand new out of the box version for the same reason. EK''s website says nothing about this other than it would fit. Dunno if it is because XFX changed their board on Version B or what, but I am an extremely unhappy customer since now I have an opened box waterblock that will not fit despite numerous websites telling me I''d be just fine.
