I know of the nickel problem, but I went for the copper ---OH wait, I just noticed this biggrin.gif

I have my EK waterblock here finally, and I'm pretty sure I bought the Copper Acetal, since that was the only one in stock at the time. At least from what I can remember.

I got Copper Plexi, lol guitar.gif

I'm not sure which I think is the best looking, Nickel or Copper Plexi biggrin.gif
Was expecting Acetal, so there is not much difference then between the Acetal copper or nickel version rolleyes.gif

Plexi is the weaker material, but you can see thru it so it's good for when you're looking for more bling. Plain black is pretty boring in contrast.

It all depends on what you're going for. My case, mobo, ram, tubing, are all black, so I wen't with acetal. Throw in some shiny fittings, and a nickel-plated cpu block and it's a quiet, sleek, look.

I 100% disagree on cable quality not making a difference. Of course if your running a pioneer receiver on kenwood tower speakers you wont see a difference but trust me on high fidelity equipment pushing high wattage on top of the line drivers it makes a huge difference. Your other problem is running 20ft. Its a known fact that anything over 3m begins to experience signal loss on the current stage of dp. In the end maybe the samsungs are pos who knows. I've never seen issues with other monitors running display port. It seems that they have connectivity problems internally on there 120hz series with dp. Its unfortunate because dp is the best available right now for signal transfer. The fact that you have to spend an extra 200 on the 27" model(950) to get a dvi-d(90's technology) to run 120hz without signal issues is a joke. Vega what are you running to your 750's? It looks like they only offer hdmi/dp no dvi.

I know we are derailing, but Vega is right. I have 100K$ worth of high-end audio gear in my Home Theater and run cheap run-of-the-mill Monoprice audio and video cables.

I'm a reviewer for an AV magazine, and we did make alot of double blind test with cables, and there was no differences, no matter the price. Not a single of us reviewers with ''golden-ears'' were able to distinguish cheap from top $ cables, and this with McIntosh and Krell high-end amps and 50K$ speakers. I was there. I did all the tests. With 15 golden-ears (or so they say...) reviewers. wink.gif Placebo effect.

Whats so wrong with a placebo effect? Obviously if the person listening thinks it sounds better, they get more enjoyment out of it. Isnt that why people spend so much on stuff (whether video cards or audio gear), for their enjoyment of their hobby?

This may be true but I feel a little bit better running expensive cable from my marantz receiver then lamp cord. Call it whatever you wan't lol. Now we are mainly basing this discussion on video cable not audio. Do you still think a quality component or dp/hdmi cable makes no difference in the quality of the video signal reaching your tv/monitor?
