There are no comparisons of this to any other block yet... I do really want to see how it does but the cost is too restrictive.

Really if these CPU water blocks were as high flowing as EK and the Raystorm, I would buy it without thinking about it! I have always liked the looks of Aquacomputer, even their GPU blocks are very restrictive!

EKWB are all to plain looking, they need to add some exciting blocks to look at instead of a square block with nickel coating and some stupid little letters! One thing I have noticed about EKWB is they really don't want to spend much on CNC machining, they don't even have standoffs machined into their GPU blocks! They like to use acrylic and acetal for the top part of their blocks, their cheap that way! If EK doesn't start machining standoffs on their GPU blocks I'm done with them being cheap!

I know ppl get these for the bling factor, but I'd be wanting to see a 15-20c temp improvement over the raystorm to even consider buying 1

If you want to see a 15-20C temp improvement then you should be looking at a phase change cooling system, you are very unlikely to see such a huge temp difference in the next couple of years and the foreseeable future! The only thing that will bring temps down that far is a couple die shrinks.

phase would give you way cooler temps, to loose 15-20c i would get a nice pump for pro flow and a decent water chiller for almost the price of this block =/

I used to have one they are pretty restrictive but cooling performance is on par with ek supreme hf. Lock down is the old type screwing which isnt that great looking compare to the easy mount.
