I'm going to take out all the 780's 1x on Firestorm Hall of fame
and Firestorm Extreme Hall of Fame
. Later tonight just waiting for it to cool down to change my bench clocks.
It does doesn't it? But one note on this, Indigo is story on it's own and it's quite easy to mess it up, no matter what block you place on it, it's often common to expect user error while applying indigo extreme, further more other errors could mess you up as well, maybe even bad day, who know? I myself am sometimes impatient while trying to do things right. Patience is virtue.
Never mind what you choose , be careful and do your best while doing it!

There was a big article about it last year. They are made with a slight crown to them. And that effects their performance on socket 2011 cpus. I love the Raystorm block. But as soon as I bought the RIVE I dedided to use my Apogee HD.
Good for sck 1155? Wait...what are you saying that IHS sck 1155 cpus are concave so they fit better opposed to sck 2011 which are not cause I really don't get it?
I looked for block surface already, that was first thing that I did when I purchased it. My eyes could be wrong, but I don't see how much convex does block have to be to hurt it's performance? It covers at least (modest
) 80% of CPU IHS does it? It covers IHS center, CPU hearts does it? So where is the problem?!
