VID-AR697 Won't work with XFX HD 6970 PN# HD-697A-CNFC

Order a VID-AR6970, the pin outs for mounting the block are misalligned, I forgot to take a picture last night and already reassembly the card.
I did order a Shapphire HD 6970 today (Pn# A271-6970), after looking at images on the web, my guess is the Shapphire will work with the block
I will post images and updates after the install.

Ok, quick update the Shapphire (Sapphire Radeon HD 6970 2 GB DDR5 DL-DVI-I/SL-DVI-D/HDMI/Dual Mini DP PCI-Express Graphics Card 100311SR) works perfectly with the VID-AR697 water block, seamless install. here are some pictures of the card. I will update after installation on the computer

If it's a newer version of xfx and if it has been modified by them, it will not fit the card. So you might have better luck with sapphire or if your not sure email or call koolance and they can help you out.

Thanks , I did Replace with Shapphire and works great, I did call Koolance but they told me the only way to be sure is with the card in hands

If you still have the card at least you can crossfire it now lol.
