EK 5970 Acetal-Nickel Acetal Nickel More about : difference 5970 waterblocks rubix_1011 a c 333 K Overclocking August 6, 2010 2:28:07 PM Yes, most likely just the aesthetic look. The acetal look is more matte/plasticy looking, and the nickel is for the chrome look. The base of the block is most likely identical in each...just a different top. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
