There is only a few vendors who can beat a koolance gpu block, and one of them failed horribly on nickle plating.

If you need a bridge.. a blingy bridge.. try aqua computers.
Not sure which blocks in particular you meant, but in the case of mine - the VRM's do in fact have water channels in the block portion. Saw a pic and took one of mine apart.

The Koolance are indeed very nice blocks, although they unfortunately do not make a V2 block for my GPU - reference only.

Well sure, they do have water channels over the voltage regulation, but Danger Den and Bitspower both have very poor VRM cooling in their blocks compared to EK, Koolance, and Aquacomputer. Obviously EK has a bad rap now, but that doesn't rule out the latter 2.

I completely agree! I was just clarifying since the statement NaeKuh made about Koolance ("...and direct water to VRMS. ") seems to indicate that DD does not have direct water when it most certainly does - just not as efficiently perhaps!

I personally would have gone Koolance if they made a non-reference for my block. I have other reasons I decided against the Aquacomputer non-reference.

IIRC, the Danger Den 480 block was one of the best (and the best when it used TIM instead of thermal pads) when it came to VRM. Was this a fluke?

FWIW, I've dealt with Kathi before, and found her extremely accommadating and helpful. I had called because I had bought an "open box" DD kit @ Microcenter, and two weeks later the Laing pump failed. I sent it to them for inspection and even though she said that the particular model was way out of warranty, she offered to sell me a new CPX-Pro at half price, which was just way nice. :-)
