I am glad I bought mine months ago. This is going to complicate buying and selling used water blocks though.

same. I bought my second card on Black Friday. I know that's near the end of November, but I'm pretty sure through shipping, sitting on the shelf, etc, it's the original version. I do plan on going custom loop when I can afford it. These Asus Strix cards can overclock like crazy.

Does anyone know for sure whether the issue is limited to compatibility between these new cards and EK water blocks OR if it's compatibility with all third party blocks? I *assume* it must be with all but if anyone knows for sure that would be very much appreciated. BTW I'm particularly interested to know how things are with the Phanteks block (I've also pinged Phanteks directly via their support email, FB and Twitter accounts to try and get the official line on this).
