And I don't see how comparing his plating to a manufacturer's stock plating can not be construed as a form of self promotion. The independent lab adds more creditbility to his claims that he has the best plating service around. Yeah I could be wrong to say that was his main reason for replating the blocks rather than testing something like a Koolance block, but there is no evidence ruling out that reason so it remains as an opinion.
That being said, I do appreciate the donations the community has given and the work on behalf of the members of RRTech to make that lab study possible. I'm not denying that they did good work to find the root cause.
I think there is some confusion here? He did not re-plate the block for testing. The independent testing was for an EK plated EK block, not an RRTech plated EK block. He did not replate it and then test it again either. Again, the test was purely and simply for a non plated EK CPU block and an EK plated EK GPU block. You can find more information about it here
Yes, he does offer plating services for people. As far as I know, he has not offered to replate any EK blocks free of charge, neither has that been announced on his website that I found. As for comparing plating, of course he would use his plated blocks. That is a plating services he offers and can speak for. He is not a Koolance rep, so it would be strange for him to offer another plating as comparison when he knows more about his own.
