The PowerColor LCS HD6970 has a full water block mounted on the card, fully covering the key components which can be dissipate the heat from the copper base design. This allows the reduction of GPU temperatures under 50°C even under full load. PowerColor packages a high-flow 3/8" and 1/2" fittings (barbs) to maximize water flow with captured o-rings to prevent leakage. Gamers can customize their own liquid cooling system using these two fittings.

"With all the key features come with this latest solution, we believe all these benefits can make it the best solution ever for hardcore gamers and benchmark ethusiasts.”

Powercolor makes some interesting designs. They seem to want to cater to the enthusiasts. I think they need to offer a lifetime warranty to establish themselves as a top quality brand with the public. That and get someone to write their press releases who is more fluent in English.

Looks good, but I'm not a fan of using barbs for the fittings.

I much prefer compression fittings. Easier to use, and less likely to leak.

Koolance has a WB for the 6950/6970 as well, and allows you to use the fitting of your choice.

At least they went with EK this round, rather than cheap crap like Swiftech or Koolance. Still prefer Watercool or AquaComputer, but EK is okay.

And that is EK's basic 6970 block with very minor tweaks; it'll fit compressions just fine.
