I know, good luck getting a card any time soon, but these blocks are a bit different. I was hoping to see some compact block designs based on the FE pcb and this block and the EK vector blocks are very good looking. I think the Vectors have more of a wow factor but these Bitspower blocks are $100 cheaper. Here is the link: https://shop.bitspower.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=67_102_364&product_id=7898

EDIT: Updated the link to Bitspowers own website

Very cool. But I try to avoid blocks with plexi fitting terminals whenever possible. Always am afraid of over-tightening causing the plexi to crack over time. I've somehow managed to get hairline cracks in plexi just by hand tightening fittings. Prefer tightening into acetyl or copper/nickel whenever possible.

Looks like they took that down in a hurry.

I didn't know Bitspower made blocks. I'm only familliar with their fittings....

Personally I prefer metal threads on my blocks. Not too difficult to find on CPU blocks but nearly unobtainable for GPU blocks. Black acetal may be stronger than plexi, but it still makes me nervous compared to metal.

They make pretty much everything just not always as high profile or widely known. If you have the patience check out their website. It isnt very user friendly but it lists all of their gear.
