The XT Rev 2 is a good block, if a little restrictive.

If you wait a bit you can get an XSPC Raystorm, the new performance king of CPU water blocks.

Other than that the EK Supreme HF (all variants, just make sure you get EN plated if you go for nickle) or the Koolance CPU-370 are good performance blocks. Then there is the XSPC Rasa for price performance.

Check out Martin's Raystorm Review, it compares all the blocks I mentioned.

Edit: Results for the lazy...

Restriction:


Thermal performance:

XSPC Raystorm for me too
post #6 of 18
I'm getting the raystorm as soon as it's readily available : ]. Nevertheless, my Apogee XT revision 2 is chilling my 5.46 GHz 2600k at 28-32° C in very cool ambient. Load for games/gpu benchmarks doesn't climb beyond 60; CPU 100% load peak of 80 (only one core). Great work on the revision.
