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.

Ditto: Does not fit XFX Core 7870 (FX-787A-CNFC)03-02-2014
Reviewer: Thunder175 (1)
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.

Even though it says its on the compatibility list for GPUs it support, the VRMs and the capacitors are on a different configuration than cooling block. The picture shows that the capacitors are in a small grouping and on my card they are not. They are lined up with the VRM''s so the waterblock cannot physically fit. The fact that the compatibility list shows that it fits to my card is very annoying and when I get off of work, im calling whoever to get this fixed. Im not particularly happy right now.
An amazing product!08-08-2012

First of all, let me start off by saying I have a MSI 7870 that fits perfectly with this. The back plate is cheap and it comes with an adapter that allows you to have your fittings sticking out the side instead of the bottom. Remember to check the compatibility list in the description! Not all 7870/7850''s are the same! This block will NOT fit Diamond cards. It also comes with thermal pads for your memory on your card. They come in sticks, not precut pieces. You can feel free to cut them up, or just lay the pad over the row of memory. Either one seems to work just as good as the other. Always been very happy with anything by EK.
