Not really. The Rasa is suited to multi block loops and the Kryos is hyper restrictive. Choice is rather obvious imo.

Well I thought most GPU waterblocks are nickel and when the new Keplers come out I want to throw that on my WC loop. For now I'm just doing CPU with 2 x GTX 240 rads. is copper an actual option?

Just buy the EK Supreme HF full copper then if you're scared of the Nickel. I have a full Nickel I purchased back in February - guess what? Not a single issue inside or out.

It is by far the best of all the blocks. I don't know why everyone is being such pansies over the EK nickel issue and swearing them off - stupid. Don't forget it's still affecting a very small number of blocks total, and you don't HAVE TO buy the Nickel plated options. It's only for looks.

Here's why the EK is the best:
- #1 performing CPU block. Period.
- Restriction is extremely low for this block which means you can turn your pump down (less noise, and pump heat output), or with a nicely silenced D5 keep it cranked on full and have excellent flow throughout your entire loop.
- #1 block on the market in terms of fitting sizes and options. You can uses two 1/2"ID 3/4"OD straight compression fittings on this block with absolutely no clearance issues
- Excellent design on the internals. Compare it to other brands with crap machining and ugly base blocks that are just a simple slab of copper with channels cut out. This one has some actual design thought put into it, as well as the block top. Much better than ALL other brands.
- Finally the easy-mount system while not 'perfect' (neither are any of the other's mounting mechanisms) looks good and works very well. I've owned both the Rev 2 and 3 system - the new one is good.
- This is subjective: looks great installed. Beautiful block; simple is sometimes so much better and more classy.


I don't know why EK is "out" - you guys are thinking like a bunch of 2 year olds. Seriously.

@coolhandluke42, I will do so - feel bad for the others who get roped into thinking EK is cheesing their customers, or their stuff isn't good based on what a bunch of 10yr old forum brats proclaim

What block do you use coolhand?

Sadly, the Rasa cpu block is not compatible w/ TFC compression fittings

You make so many false statements it's hard to believe you aren't trolling but I will say this nonetheless. Look around. Inform yourself. Ignorance is not always bliss.

Literally the only truth in this post is the aesthetics aspect, and as you said, even that is purely subjective
