You left out the Heatkiller 3.0; VERY close to the Rasa's performance. The Rasa block itself is the best bang for buck right now, especially having such low restriction compared to the Apogee XT/Kryos.

The entire Kryos series should be mentioned as span from the same performance as the Rasa to the best two blocks available.

I should have but these a re bit newer in design, even though the HK and the Swiftech can still hold their ground. Where's the HK 4.0

I have no idea. Watercool loves resting on their laurels and there hasn't been any news of any new CPU blocks from them for a long time now.

Probably due to the expense most likely. If I were in charge of AquaComputer, I wouldn't be giving them away for reviews either

I just got my loop, but already, I've been looking at the Cuplex Kryos HF. Though, from my understanding, the XT & HF lines are nearly identical in performance. Exotic versions not withstanding.

FrozenCPU says that the 1/2 ID, 3/4 OD compression fittings are really close to each other...I wonder if they'll still work...
If you are using any angled fittings, at least one has to be a rotary fitting to get them both on.

This is what I have so far, currently testing an acrylic top Supreme HF with copper base. Not finished testing that one yet though, more work to do..

As previously noted, they are all very tight with the newer designs....definitely splitting hairs differences thermally (All of two degrees isn't much to get real excited about)





I did also request an AC Kryos sample a while back, but never heard back from them so I'm not sure I'll get to that one.

The Rasa is about as restrictive as the Kryos.

Looks like I'm missremembering something. Oh, wait, I was thinking Rasa vs Supreme HF in terms of restrictiveness. I recall claims that the Rasa was less restrictive than the HF, which isn't the case.
