Have had a few folks ask me about GPU water blocks for the Matrix 5870 Platinum and the only ones I can find are for the vanilla Matrix 5870.

Is the PCB layout the same for the Platinum and vanilla?

Yes I have ASUS ROG Matrix HD 5870 Platinum and are very interested in the answer to that question since I've been looking for a Full Cover Water Cooling Block to it.

Here's some complementary informations I got hold of recently via e-mail from http://www.koolance.com (http://www.koolance.com/)

After lots more searching, the PCB's appear to be the same... with the Platinum having a higher core clock out of the box versus the vanilla (okay, calling a custom card vanilla might be the wrong way to say it) Matrix 5870.
