I know this is a rare card, thanks to Nvidia wanting nothing to compete with their GTX590 card, Some guy had a custom EK style full cover water block made, thought some might like to see this, there's a whole thread devoted to the PC the guy made/modded that contains the Asus Mars II card. This thread is so far 18 pages long and if You want to see the waterblock right off the bat, look here first, scroll down and You'll one humongous piece of copper...

I imagine he'd have to lay that PC down since that Copper is so heavy it might just snap the card at the pins

The card with the nickel plated copper block weighs only 1.8Kg now or about 3.97lbs, He said the pipes would support the card, but then there is no tubing in that case, everything is rigid there..

The original size of the block is 300x200x20mm in size, quite the hunk of copper, that's 10.6Kg(23.369lbs) of copper.
