Do you know if waterblocks designed to fit the reference design will work on the Direct CU II ?? I know this would not have been tested in the Asus labs, but do you know if the basic dimensional design specs werer altered? Or are the changes only better components and cooler?
This is critcal for me. I currently have 2 Asus HD 7970 cards in crossfire that are water cooled witn Koolance blocks that fit the reference design perfectly. However, I want to swap to the Direct CU II versions to get the better VRM components.
